Crazy day Metro - Rain then Sun and Wind!

Everyone was at metro yesterday so I drove over in the pouring rain at 1pm.... it dumped until got sunny and cranked dead south for about 2 hours - caps and 5.5m for most... I only brought kite and 12m was really 5pm it was done..great short session - I'm going again today atleast for some rides on the 17m kite...but a repeat would be great.

Fast Saturday at Addison and Bald

Record setting ride at Addison looping only getting slowed by the trail builders working on track. Perfect dry and fast and tons of top end with tires pumped hard and suspension in CC mode. Fun Bald speed run to finish. Quick 11.5 in hour but super speed fun.

Highland kills again. Runtastic MTB sucks

Stupid - gave new Runtastic MTB app a try instead of Strava and it totally killed my battery in less than an hour so no chart this week. Got in a good 15+ ? mile ride with John and DB Junior on Highland today. Killer run 70° partly sunny at 8:45 in the morning. Over 2 hours of twists and climbs that never end seemingly. Good fun except gotta duck more with head and shoulders when going under trees! Please Alleve.

Harsens doesn't get any better

20 solid all day. Bluebird sun. 84 degrees and clean shallow chest deep water. Perfect day at Harsens. About 12 guys out so no crowds and plenty of smiles. On water at 1pm and just barely made it back at 7pm when Craig and got caught way up on the river kiting the glass along the grass shoreline. Got solid overpowered hour on the 5.4 Atlas (4.7 would have been spot on) from 3 to 4pm as well as an hour ripping strapless on the surfboard. 12M depowered most all of this huge on water day. Spent by days end-Beer me! We need more days like this. So good. Harsens rules.

Bloomer follow up

Sun and 74. Great day to follow up to Highland and loop the baby rim here. Nice features and interesting first half. Second it just long and flowy but get you to an hour and about 8 miles. Perfect ride when time is short.
