all is quiet on the Mill Creek trails .......

There`s something about Sundays that just says "relax" . It`s the day before the work week begins and everybody`s mind is telling them to slow down and take it easy . You can see it on the roads driving . People arn`t so rushed to get to where they are going , and they drive slower then the speed limit . My neighbours are alot more relaxed on Sundays . The mood in the river valley is always different . People are moving slower , walking their dogs with less of a rush . Everybody down in the valley seems a little more relaxed and cause of that .......A little more friendly . I always found that Sundays in the river valley were always quieter , probably cause everybody is taking it easy in their backyards or in their house on the couch chillaxing . looking back on this site I noticed there arn`t too many ride`s posted on a Sunday , and I know in the past I always took it easy on Sundays . The rides I did go on were always alot more toned down compared to Saturday riding . So if your like me and you don`t feel like doing much cause it`s Sunday . Don`t , we need to chill out and relax . It is Biblical isn`t it ?

Today it took me forever to get going after a trip to Fort Saskatchewan fell through with a friend . The call came at around 10 in the morning and I decided to go riding anyways . six and a half hours later I dragged my ass out of the house and drove  to Mill Creek , not Fort Saskatchewan (that`s just too damn far to drive on a Sunday). The mood in the valley today was typical of Sunday . The cooler temps kept people away as it made things better for guilt free napping in on a Sunday .  As far as my ride went , I like to think I rode pretty hard (why do I hear laughing ?) . I made it to the entrance to Mckinnon ravine . Stopped . Pondered life , and then turned around , after all . It`s Sunday isn`t it ?

 Some sketchy moments today as it seemed to be a bit icy and then it transitioned to super sketchy icy as I started in Turner park and made ...
