The past week has been a tough one. I'm not used to working nights and there is just too much going on this time of year. It worked out well today to get Emma to her class downtown and get some riding in with Dave N., Dale, Cory and Mike at Jewell Park. I have walked there with my girls but today was my first time riding it. Jewell Park has some good climbs and some technical riding. I actually liked it more than I thought I would. Had to walk in a few places so there is some room for improvement. Good ride, good friends!
It was short but sweet. I rode Tranquility after work yesterday but stayed on the south side. I could see others riding the whole trail and their bikes looked as clean as mine. Should be even better later today. I took a picture of my front tire after riding the inner loop. Much cleaner than I expected...
Visited the Gibson's last night. I tried to provide some moral support during the bike maintenance. Dave and Greg were changing oil/seals in their front forks. Emily Gibson made me this fantastic fan! Thanks Emily.
Stratomatica - is my blog place where I document things happening around me or that interest me. The name Strata, geologically speaking, are layers of sedimentary rock or soil with internally consistent characteristics that distinguish it from other layers. Too deep? Well, I like guitars. Mostly I like the sound and feel of Stratocasters.
