thursday was my birthday, and i woke up without a plan. i wanted to do something challenging like i do every year, but this year i am so severely out of shape i was having trouble coming up with anything. putting my bike in the car could have been the event, but i decided i should do something a little more. i couldn’t come up with anything interesting so i decided that i should go out and ride. i started out going to do my regular old ride…the devil’s back bone. as i pulled in to the parking lot i was feeling a little unenthusiastic…after all i’ve done this trail so many times i might be able to do it blind folded. i just remembered this trail someone told me about a while back not too far from here…at least it will be something new… for my birthday.
bobcat ridge; almost 12 miles out and back, and 1500ft of climbing in the first 4miles.
i don’t remember when they had the fire, but it doesn’t look like it was too long ago.
nice racing stripe in the rock.
finally the rock park.
it was a pretty tough climb up to the top, especially since i was out of shape, and my bike is a single speed. i can’t wait to climb this when i’m in shape.
happy birthday to me!
