Three Days In, A Bike Ride


A rough start to another stint at home which resulted in three days of no rides where today the seal was finally cracked and I rolled around on a fine hardtail bike I'm sure with a rather dumbfounded look on my face.

July may not be the best month to ride, yet it always has had a special place in my heart as it is the month where the weather is in it's most Summer of moods. With the deep Summer in Edmonton we get the classic Edmonton trails of overgrown grass that spills onto the trail brushing your shins as you roll past. Something that happened today on the little singletrack that was ridden.

Yes the ride from Mill Creek to Hawerlak and back through Mackinnon gave little singletrack but I didn't give two shits.

Today's ride made me feel like I just resurfaced from a deep lake where I almost drowned.

I needed it.
