My first full weekend of riding this season

Posted: April 15, 2013 in Cycling

This weekend was my first full weekend of riding this year, and boy oh boy am I out of shape.  I managed to put in around 3-1/2 hours on Saturday, but pulled the plug on Sunday after only an hour and a half.  My legs were just gone.

The good news is that the trails were in great shape, and some new ones were added since last year, including this cool downhill halfpipe section.

While fun, it could be better, because whoever designed it brought you all the way up out of the halfpipe at the end of each turn, save the last couple near the bottom.  As such, it's tought to keep up any momentum.

I also got to test out my new brake pads - Brake Authority's Aggressive A sintered pads.  I have to say that so far I'm liking them a lot.  They bedded in quickly, have good stopping power (even when wet) and don't make much noise.  What's not to like?

I'm still on the fence about my grips though.  With my hands being as big as they are, I'll probably swap them for some larger diameter ones, because right now it's like hanging onto a coat hanger.

It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I just beat people up.
