    R-I-D-E-R-E-P-O-R-T (just to be like the others)

    Rode BCGB this morning...i dropped in from 360, was kinda worried about the wetness of the trail...rode from 360 to zilker...trail was good, little soft, sloppy in sections, but not too bad.

    Arrived at zilker and realized i've never played with ALL the gears in my new bike...so i blew around town lake as fast as i could (probably pissing off joggers, buti tried to be good)

    stopped to eat a granola bar (apple crips is really good...if you've not had one)

    headed back to the green belt (much dryer and cleaner this time through)...got my ass kicked the rest of the way...it was a WHOLE lot tougher riding from zilker-360 when tired (i usually leave from zilker, so that stretch is when i'm ready to go)...at one of the creek crossings, i pulled off to let people go, and one dude endoed and fell from indecision...i smiled while watching...i think he was pissed...i think he thought i was laughing at him, which i wasn't...

    all in all, good ride, glad the rain came and atleast cooled things off a bit...cut the dust down considerably too...it kicked my butt though...on the final climb back to my truck (the switchbacks from the main trail to the 360 parking lot) i fell...just too tired at that point i guess...got sloppy...

    gonna take my bike to the shop now...sleep the rest of the day

    nice ride report

    i'm gettin' ready to go ride probably sloppy Pupukea Area Trails now---it rains way more than one would imagine in Hawaii. If it's too wet there'll be the 40 mile organized road ride tomorrow so the weekend won't be a total loss.

    hope ya remembered to clean the bike be4 takin it to the mech dude.
