Most of us can't stand and deliver that long. In fact, many of us can't stand at all. Gears turned us into seated riders.

I used to be. Our back roads here were legendary and uncrowded until Levi Leiphiemer moved here and put them on the big screen. Too many bike tour companies unleashing greenhorn riders trying to share the road with logging trucks. It's become very dangerous now. But for years I regularly rode my Bianchi 928 carbon bike. I also did the Triple Bypass with my son and his father in law for six years. https://triplebypass.org

Having “driven” the Triple Bypass segment in Colorado hundreds of times. I’m in awe that you’ve ridden that on a bike.

120 miles
10,000 vertical feet gain at 8,000 feet plus altitude.

Stop the insanity. :clap:

FLoopsed is short for FL(orida) Oopsied. Comes from the very 80s affliction of accidentally doing way too much coke in Miami in the 80s then waking up with a sore head, a sore hooker, and wondering WTF?!?!?
In other words, doing something that seemed like a good idea at the time, but ended up being way overrated...

Sounds like Hawg to a tee.



Good to hear you’ve been tearing it up Hawg. I don’t do good in the heat and my mornings and evenings haven’t coincided for any quality dirt rides lately. I have been getting in several cruise rides on a bike path though. Nothing worth reporting there other than many short short sightings. ;)

Soul squeezing high altitude ride today. Rode Mt Pinos/McGill trail. Ride starts at 6000' and after an 8 mile pedalfest with continuous ST climbing, we reached Mt Pinos summit at 8700'. I was dizzy as hell for the last two miles of the climb.

However, the ride back down was heavenly. :D

The trail itself is nothing special. But, add in forest trees, super blue skies, and the sounds of nature, and you have a "pretty awesome" experience. It is damned fast coming back down, though. I will say that. Took us a few hours to get up to the top and only minutes to get back down.

Which does make it awesome. If the trail was full of technical gnar one wouldn’t be able to really enjoy the surroundings. Being fully concentrated on the trail to prevent death of course.

Very frustrated here. Every time I walk into my garage I look longingly at my bike... still recovering from oral surgery and from having another bout of skin cancer removed... Tomorrow I get to see if I am good to go again :)

Back of the Flux felt weird tonight so I stopped to look it over. Play in the pivots. Figured it was due for a rebuild being 5 years old this November.
Got home and put a torque wrench on it. Loose af. Snugged the two dw link bolts and she’s good for another 5. 8-)
