Let’s go to Bloomer because it’s close by and Sunny

Wrong with started out as a good ride and perfect dry single track ended up in the final 15 minutes of being nothing but a downpour of rain and mud down the center of the trail. Having such a good ride up until that point. Now it's back home to spray the bike down and clean everything up including myself.

Ok it’s Metro to be local but should have gone to C-vile

Saturday up at 7 am to drive to Caseville but the wind is dead south and only supposed to change by lunch. So I 10 o'clock I had to Metro and It's 15-18 S, just enough for the 11 m kite and the Duke. Then of course the wind gets funky and we lose two hours waiting for her to rebuild and get back out on the Jester. Probably the best part of the day was 3 PM on as the wind filled in with a little bit more west and into the 20 to 25 range. About 20-25 liters and I used the new shore entrance a couple of times to test on a dead south. Sun and 88 degrees with a small park crowd (expected it to be packed...) but we'll take it as it's hard to find anything worthy of drive lately.

Yeah it’s kind of hot today to ride at 2-5pm

Slow and steamy but still we ride. 95 degrees and 80% humidity and partly cloudy. Brakes running as light as ever too. One car in the lot and no one on the whole trail should have been the clue. Still great ride and decent pace. Hot yes but still worthy to get out.

Southern Scorcher at Caseville

Gotta chase it when it blows. Caseville worthy drive too. Good day on water almost equal to drive. 88 degrees sun with SSW 15-22 started the day before noon on the 11 and strapped Jester. Thruster fin set up rocked powered up riding the Breakwall. So great jumping a small surfboard! Can't wait for a huge wave day with this setup. 10/10 riding this so far-love it - mini Duke. 30+ people out and winds peaked at 25 at 1pm when light rain cloud passed through. By 4pm time for 14 and Duke which worked perfectly until 6:30 with winds 13-18. Count it with hardly any sessions so far between and summer wind slump. Caseville and SW works every time so far.

Torn Shirt and Murray Lake Sat Perfection

Saturday 9am, 75 degrees and dry with full sun. Doesn't get any better in summer. Fast and no one else on the trail to be seen. Great 17+ miles followed by a splashdown in the lake. Wanna do it all over again.

Secret Rochester back door to Stony.

Looping the flowy stone riddled section only after finding the back way into Stoney Creek. Only 1 Mile north of downtown Rochester. Loved it. Only bad part is the maps here are worthless. I will map it myself!

Wet with no Rain at Flowy DTE

Raining with no rain humidity with damp sand but still fast. Love DTE. Skipped the Green but crushed the Orange and Blue. 10am arrival key before the masses. Can't wait to come back.

Holly Sweaty Whipfest

80 degrees at 2pm with a RealFree of 90+. Great sun and mostly dry but still tacky Grubers. Great ride and the bike was so solid. 4.8 tires rule - Don't take a line - Make a Line!
