Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Knobby Tire Series @ Bonelli Race# 2 June 23, 2011

I'm ready for more! Race Info Here ...

I was surprised how much climbing there was and how much single track I've missed out on at Bonelli. I've been riding Bonelli since 1993 but never ventured off the main fire roads. My Bonelli ride consists of the 12 mile perimeter loop. Its almost 100% Fireroad.

This course was bumpy, with steep technical climbs, and fast descents on sketchy single track.

I can't wait to take some of my MTB buddies on this course.

During the race a few guys crashed (I was one of them too). One guy crashed hard on the rock garden section. When I caught up to him, he was walking slowly and holding his collarbone/shoulder. All he could say is, "Yep, I think I'm hurt pretty bad, yep pretty bad." Fortunately, someone was already helping him down and another walking his bike to the nearby medic.

Overall it was a great race and I'm ready for next week. I guess, I ought to do a MTB ride this weekend. Team V is doing a last minute 70 mile ride tomorrow. Doh, I think I will miss that one.
