That bike was awesome. Rebuilt from the Cro-Mo up, she had a blue frame & yellow rat trap. True to the core, she was 100% Deore, LX that is, rapid fire shifters and all. Good memories of the bike & even better of the build.
"Wanna throw on head lamps & rip our bikes off the GC sand pits tomorrow morning?"
Night rides have always been hi pri through the off season and this weekend it was a wicked way to match the awesomeness of a classic XC run, the Thetis 20K Relay.
Lap one with the lead pack was fun, but the legs need to last a little.
Lap two found a groove & made it 1/2 way to the hobble.
Lap three was actually pretty fun.
Lap four was a gut fest up & down those final two climbs.
Shouts out to Phil, the "Island Runner," & Mr Bob Reid for putting on the event.
Cross the rock finale approaches fast!
