Gunn City Gravel

Shortened the ride a bit so didn't quite make it south all the way to Gunn City, but it was still a shotgun blast. Hot.

Pee Hill

Found a pleasant hill near Pleasant Hill to ride this morning. Camels in Missouri are good indication it's gonna be hot today.

My good friend Joe turned 44 today. So my gift to him? Get our asses up at 4am, roll out around 4:44am for a 44 mile sunrise ride before work. Fortunately, it wasn't 44°F... unfortunately, closer to 44°C. Not my birthday, but I feel spanked.

Ride yer bike! While I take a nap. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....

I set another of my bicycles free today, and it returned the favor. Thanks to all the revolutionaries, emancipationaries, foreign warrionairies and current militaries that have fought and served this grand experiment of cultures that is the U S of A. Letting freedom ring sounds suspiciously like a bicycle bell. Be free.


Don't lose any fingers.

Levee ride

Rode from Lee's Summit with my buddy Joe up to check out some gravel I saw on Google maps. Metric century, °F a few shy of a century. The levee was cool but washboarded and beat the hell out of us. Rode it for 2 (of 5) miles and bailed into a corn field farm road. Hot day. Cool stuff. Go discover something.

New dirt

There's a ~3 mile parkway extension in town that has yet to be wayed. I wish it would remain parked. I'll get in some traffic free packed dirt roads while it lasts... Saw upwards of 50 deer in 30 miles. 1.67 per mile.

Lots of riding planned for the 4th weekend. More gravel tomorrow, Clinton Lake mtb Sunday, roadie Monday. Give each bike some love.

Stay cool. Keep all your fingers. Ride yer bike!
