Mountain Biking Stuff

There seems to be a lull in the mountain biking world right now. I hope it is because everybody is out riding and just getting it done. Regardless, there has been a dearth of excitement and I have been tired and still partially injured, so My blog has suffered (not that it's that great).

First of all, the 24 Hours in the Enchanted Forest is coming up in a few days and it is one big mountain biking party. I am excited for the event and to see all my friends (especially Alex who has moved to Flagstaff). Next year it is going to be the 24 hour endurance championship so it will probably double in size. If you haven't done a 24 hour race- this is a good one to start with.

Next: a picture of Kip on Poco Loco which is riding really nice,

and somebody built a lovely connector from Poco over to the top of Otero across a small chunk of the "VERBOTEN" territory- it's illegal, but convenient.

Riding the North Foothills today, I saw some cool insect action- some type of ground dwelling Bee had hatched its way out of the ground and was very busy flying in and out of the holes they had dug.

Some other flying insects (horsefly?) seem to be getting in on the action but I couldn't discern what was actually going on.

Lastly, I converted my Cross/Commuter/Frankenbike back to its originally intended form- a 29er singlespeed. I went full rigid to see if I can be as bad-ass as the guy we rode with in Sedona a few months ago (not possible), but it did end up very pretty and very light at 18.75 Lbs.

Yes, I'm spoiled. Cheers.
