Snow forecast for Sunday and Groundhog day on Tuesday is forecast to be sunny which means the hog sees its shadow meaning 6 more weeks of winter. I wonder if Arizona even has a ground hog.
Today was warm with high overcast.
Bike and Bean is almost all moved out of their old location and almost ready for operations in their new location in another building in the complex, almost beside a pizza place. The approach to the store passes front window close of a nail salon. More floor space, cheaper rent, better inside set up. Flurry of activity transporting stuff across the parking lot.
Today I rode the Lama loop again riding w/ reduced effort to learn the effect on my body. It took 8 mins longer, burned 70 cals less and was aerobic 20 mins more as opposed to being anaerobic. I am becoming more aggressive in my pedaling which translates to stronger riding. What I mean is the harder I push down on the pedals the more likely I can muscle my way over an obstacle. Shove the front wheel into a rock and push hard making the fork compress. I still lack confidence in making step ups that require pedaling fast into them. Attack!
On Templeton I hung out w/ a raven
Thurs was laundry day. This is what a good rack looks like
Jimmy from Boulder City camped near me Tuesday night. I met him at The Hub in Brevard several years ago. He shows up here several times while I’m here. recently I met another Jim who works at Absolute across the highway from the Bean. He lived back in Brevard. The 3 of us hung out. The Pisgah connection.
I was invited to a biker pizza party. Reid orchestrated the individual pizza making. I shared moonshine. Few sippers. I made my Waldorf salad variation
Tomorrow is last good riding day before the wet returns.
