1st night of the 300

As I climbed towards the setting sun, the cramps that held my legs in bondage, disappeared. The dirt beneath my tires became soft and all became quiet. Up ahead in the blowing tall grass, I saw dark shadows moving from my left. A pack of javalina, running across my path, silent and large; their dark shapes disappeared into the grass to my right, fading to black....it was here, at this moment, I was transformed from this ride and taken to another place.

my first time ripping my rear derailleur off! luckily i packed my extra hanger and installed the new one. Derailleur was a bit bent but still allowed me to ride with full range of gears.

Congrats on the new rig Raybum. Looks awesome!!!!

Someone got a bit creative with an old 55Gal drum out in the PMP area.

The drum has been there for years. Someone just last week decided to do something with it. This is located at the eastern-most section of the new trail they just cut west of Cavecreek road (north west of the hill that Minedrop trail circles)

Great, Raybum on a carbon frame. That's all he needed to put himself over the edge and steal my KOMs. I guess it's time to take the framebag off my bike and get serious.
