Great Lex kite day

Friday afternoon 3 solid hours on the 12m. 75 degrees not a cloud in the sky and 12-18 NE with a tiny swell. Perfection in getting out especially since the windsurfing boys out were armed with 7.5M's.

Highland Sandy Hot Sunday

10.6 in 1:03 really sunny hot dusty fast. Pontiac uphills definitely pay well but you just got to watch out for the sand.

Addison Twice around. No Helmet no problem.

Forgot the skull bucket but that didn't slow me down after putting on an old Baseball hat. 12.9 miles in 1:23 in going around twice. Dry and fast with little humidity and 80 degrees. Nice ride and lots of flow when you know what's coming the second time around.

Highland High. Fast and "D" is Done.

2:03 for 14.7 miles of up/down/turn/slow down. Perfect temps and trail condition. Great tough ride and on a SingleSpeed, John is KOM. Highlight ride of season so far. D was really actually fun for once. This place is still a mind bender though.

HS week of Kiting closes on a NW at PSP loaded with big potential never to arrive.

Two final days on LTB. Good kiting on the 12 with 2-7pm thermal clear and blow. Great trip and while no sailing the kite filled the gap and provided a great medium wind alternative right out in front of our condo. Add a 16m and it would fill the whole week!

Boyne Orange Seat down

Super fast and flowy with a little moisture to add to the thrill. Great late afternoon ride all the way up the far south ridge and then into the Blue to Orange. Huge diseased tree loss on final half of ride really changes things up and brightens ride. Hope that doesn't spread to resort....
