I don't care to mtn bike solo, mostly for risk of getting hurt and needing help that isn't likely to come anytime soon. I don't mind riding solo on roads though. Before venturing into state forests on the rarely traveled dirt roads though, I do stop to check bgs and make sure I have enough food/drink to stay safe.

I forgot to post it here before, but after my 300k brevet I also finished a 360k fleche team ride. It was a 24 hour ride, and we covered 235 miles!

(I think I said this already, but...) I get so nervous riding solo. Even with the CGM and heavily traveled roads, it is my fear of my first low-sugar "bonk". Been able to avoid that for 19 years so far, but I'm sure its inevitable.

Rode 40 miles in 2:28 yesterday, had to stop twice to help some diamondbacks cross the road. No, no, not the MTN bike types, some diamondback turtles. Must be the laying eggs season.

This is up Boulder Canyon west of the Flatirons. The smoke wasn't too bad that day. Today it was really bad! Colorado is on fire...

So nice. Was that up in the Flatirons somewheres? Were you bothered by smoke at all?

Rode the Tour de Cure - Silicon Valley this weekend; 75km course. A great ride, great day, big crowd and a very well run event.  What fun to be a Red Rider! The cheers and friendly support from riders all along the course was a real lift!

Getting ready for the Tour de Cure ride. But I need to do more hill work. We have a big hill to climb at mile 40.
