Sat. July 31, Highlands downhill day

Good ride in cloudy 75 degrees and had the place to myself mostly. 3.5 hour ride over 3600' vertical up (chairlift) and down for 15.8 miles. Ran almost all the expert terrain at Highlands but a couple extreme ones (AfterShock), had one minor sand pit fall. 22.5 Max speed and 5 mph average. The speedy part of the day.... that damn Mac Gully chairlift. Loved the Gororoth and Rob's Fun Run. Super fast with the seat down low. This freeride trail stuff is good times.

Sunday July 25, Is. Lake Mud Run

Good ride on a mostly dry but mud puddled singletrack. Island Lake in late afternoon for 12.9 miles in 1:18. Other stats 543 ascent and 510 decent, 9.8 mph average and 20.3 top speed. Sun and 85 lovely degree. Still I'd rather be sailing at Lex today.

Bikemare at Holly. Storm littered singletrack.

1:34 of half of Grubers Grinder = 7.6 miles of hell riding tree damage trail. Never got going and a couple of times I completely lost the trail. Not fun even for a minute. I got out as soon as I hit the escape trail and that had trees down all over it! Worst. Ride. Ever.
