I wrapped some left over Salsa bar tape on top of my ESI chunky grips and so far I'm loving it. Very nice for my gigantic Shrek-hands.
This is only my second time riding Skullbuster so I did some adventuring, just trying to figure things out direction wise. I started out on this fire road and just putted around to get warmed up.
Today I brought the Fuji camera and my huge Camelback aka makeyourbackhurtabout1milein. It was worth it though...just for this turtle pic.
While heading back down the fire road to enter the trail I rode up on some horses. I stopped and started walking, but still startled one and when I thought it was about to stomp my face in, I froze completely! Haha! Those things are huge when you're up beside them like that. Sort of scary. The dude (and his daughter) were super-cool and he apologized for the horses actions, saying it was only 3 years old and still had some socializing to do. I wish I could have gotten a picture of them, they were so pretty. If I had one I'd put a horn on it and tape some wings to it's sides and call it Pegasus. I'd commute to work on that puppy rain or shine!
Anyway, once I got in the trail, I ran up on Mike Mitchum and his son doing some trail maintenance. Good to see the young ones getting a head start, and nice to talk to Mike again. Good peoples for sure!
What trail ride in 'Tucky would be complete without rolling up on a vintage can of "Dew"?!
I got in about 12 miles total and would have loved to do another lap, or two, but I need to list some eBay auctions so I headed home.
Post ride treat = Dogfish Head 60 Min. IPA in my Scribe pint glass..Kansas City represent!
