The years have been changing, the brethren rides have definitely declined dramatically from a few years or so ago and not one meet up with Jason happened in twenty one. Yes I have been a known recluse. Night shift recovery has also been a big factor and have found things have been getting worse the further in I go with this job. The stats from last year showed I was down again from the year prior with 68 rides totalling 1141kms with an elevation gain of 11,755 metres. I remember seeing 1500km ridden a few years ago which set off alarm bells to no avail apparently. I did lose the entire month of August and the end of July to work so that didn't help the overall kms count. Ugh... Stupid work, putting food on the table and paying the bills.
So here they are. The winners from twenty-one. From number 5 to number 1.
#5 Unicorn Socks for the Altitude
Click Here First ride of the season and one of the last on this bike most likely. Heavy amounts of people on the trails made things a tad annoying. Luckily most of them don't venture onto the singletrack. I remember feeling like I would lose energy quickly but kept going and going even taking on and conquering hard climbs. I ruled and so did the Altitude that day.
#4 Ride Yellow
Click Here Absolute amaze all around in January on a beautiful ride into the night. Riding the ice blocks alongside the river in the falling darkness were some surreal moments for sure I will never forget. God bless you bike Gods for moments like these. Yes I was grumpy again but shirtless dudes... I mean come on! it was January.
