This thread is to simply post what happened on your ride today. How was it? What was the highlight? (I think there should always be one).

Feel free to post pics (relevant mostly), to rant, to proclaim how awesome your ride was to the world. Anything and everything.

Lets just try to keep it mostly on topic and civilized (such ask keeping rants under control). I really hope this thread takes off.:thumbsup:

Rode fast and hard to make it back down the mountain, while the oncoming thunderstorm, lightning show, and wind made sure I didn't slow down. It's monsoon season in the southwest, and those things are not to be messed with.

Couldn't get out until late but

I made it to an event called Bike Love in Oakland just as it was folding up. The Linden Brewery was an anchor sponsor and they were still pouring when I got there. Had a nice dark brew and hung out a bit with a couple of the brewers and got 30 road miles in.

Cool and humid afternoon at 9,000 ft in the Sacramento Mountains (southern New Mexico).

Clouds rolled up on the horizon like an armada going to battle.

Nine miles into the ride the sky opens up and rain starts pelting the forest floor.

One mile fire road climb back to the trailhead. The rain feels good.

Rumble Rumble Boom!

Torrential downpour. Temperature drops like an anchor. The trail is now a river.

Climb faster. Soaked. Cold.

Emerge out at the trailhead. Soaked. Covered in mud.

Hikers huddled under a trailhead kiosk waiting for the rain to subside.

"Awesome," one of them says to me as I roll up to them.

"Yep," I say as I peddle back to my car.

Tested out my new brakes today. Shimano slx's, and my new grips. Odi ruffians. Best upgrade in years. Made a guy dressed in race garb scream (yes scream) when he thought he was gonna hit me. Almost drifted off the trail due to excess speed, annoyed a guy who was going too fast where he shouldnt have. Fun times.

Must have been the same storm that hit us in El Paso. No tree cover over here though, so I get out of the rain fast.

I wanted to start a new thread, though Im not sure if its been done before. If it has its apparently not active. This thread is to simply post what happened on your ride today. How was it?

This thread is what twitter is suppose to be.

Good luck.

Passion and other forums are what your basic thread is. If you have something notable to post, you make a thread. It's that simple.
Great contribution!

Of course, this thread is not worthy of one of your pictures.

Rode in Park City today. Started at 6,900ft, topped out right at 10,000ft in ~6 miles. Total of 16.4 miles by the time I got back to the car. Beautiful weather as always, got a little rain early this morning to settle the dust too!
Just before the summit:
