Back to the Usual



Yes another Leduc run brought to you from Tired as Fuck Industries aka The Lonebiker. yes nightshift ended at seven am yesterday morning and I got out on a rare Friday post nights bike ride. So you get this which is better than nothing or a disheartened beer review. I chose a ride and ironically went for a post ride beer which will be tomorrows review at Leduc Brewing where I will be more lively.

And yes… we ended to improve things but rides have been hampered by wet trails which always seem to line up on days off which  is why the new Octane One has become the biggest star since the introduction of the Nine0Seven brought into the quiver around nine years ago. 

Riding is better than no riding so the blog will live on no matter how boring things get.
