It was great to get out this weekend and ride in warm weather, although tyler "the robot" drilled it up emigration yesterday and i had to do all i could just to hold on, then DC sprinted every incline i rode with him today and now my legs are toast. But i feel good cuz i've been riding some of the small canyons this week, which is nice because i was really starting to get bored doing laps around the valley floor.
This morning i also rode a bit with my "anonymous friend," who you may remember from a previous post. Anyway, i was surprised when we met up with her this morning that she had cotton stuffed in her ears. I know in the past she has been known to ride with ear buds, even if she wasn't listening to music, just to keep the bugs out of her ears. Despite the warmer weather, however, it's still not warm enough for bugs. Turns out she's not only afraid of bugs, she's also afraid of the wind. Yes, she stuffed cotton in her ears because when she rides down hill it gets so loud and scary, you know, that big "whoooshy" sound. I tried to take a picture, but she quickly covered her ears so i couldn't get a good shot. She may or may not be in one of the pictures below, however.
This weekend many dear, good friends also helped me celebrate my graduation. My nieces came to the party too. I love them a lot despite what this photo may convey.
Many, many thanks to Cait and Marti for hosting and organizing the party. Thank you!!
