Made it out for a couple of back to back days of riding. Friday the wife and I went out for 2 solid hours of mountain biking. A rare thing this summer given all the rain. It was good. She was really pushing on logless roller coaster. It was not having an easy time keeping up. Our 2nd lap of the front side she was even faster. Dropped me down Grotpeter (going CW). I spun out both times up Lone Wolf which meant walking for me once I spun out, but she road it in the middle ring no problem. Show off.
Friday night was an even more rare night ride at Castlewood. I had never road my single speed at night until Friday. Always dreaded the full rigid in the darkness. Always felt I would bash my hands because I would be hitting stuff I don't see. Turns out, not that bad. Fun really.
Saturday we headed out on a road ride bright and early. 7am. It was cool, sunny, and truely awesome. 35+ miles of hills and fun.
Sunday I passed on Bubba 0.5 and studied. Took a 4 hour practice exam. It took me 5 hours.
