Riding . Strathcona Science Park - A whole bunch of places

Well that was officially the worst blog title I have ever come up with . Oh well . It shouldn`t bother me too much . I will only lose 6 or 7 hours of sleep , that`s not that bad . 6 or 7 hours of drenched bed sweat , rolling over and over while thinking "Strathcona Science Park - A whole bunch of places"........What the hell was I thinking ? Oh well , can`t change it now cause I wrote all this .

This early morning ,well late eight o`clock ride took me from the Science park to the goodness of Mckinnon Ravine , on to whorelak (in the fall months the whore/ douchebag index down there is very low) . From Hawerlak I hit Mill Creek and then back home via Ewok and all the other great trails that are on the southside of our kickass river valley system .
The temps down there were cooler then I though prompting me to keep my cool weather gear on . To be honest the temperature was just perfect .

Sorry about all the babbling in the beginning of this one . I tend to do that from time to time . The ride today wasn`t as great as I hoped it would be . Sore legs held me back a little bit . I had hoped to go farther but I could feel the fatigue growing with each mile away from the car , by the time I got back into the Rundle area my legs were pretty bad .........Why ? Who know`s ? Maybe I`m just getting older .

I do hear Ft Saskatchewan calling out my name tomorrow though.......
