Yesterday – I rode a good 2 hours in West Sechelt – it was fairly good, but I couldn’t get a good rhythm going. It actually hailed at the end of the ride. Cut short by Mother Nature. Still any ride is a good ride.
So I had this plan today. It was a beautiful day and I was going to put a 3-4 hour road ride. It started great and I was developing the so-called “Zen-state” (or maybe it was the Black Eye Peas music?). Around Beach Ave, I feel a sharp bump from the road and looked down and it was a flat. If you follow my blog, you’ll know that I ride tubulars. I get out my Vitoria Pit-stop and “hiss” into the tire I spray the sealant. Still leaking….Great…back home I go, plan ruined and zen lost….the good news is the sealant semi-ass worked as I got home (I pumped the tire up again, and after half a day, its still fully inflated. Go figure). So, I jumped onto my G-Spot and off I went for a 2.5 hour ride. The ride was interesting as I been trying to tie into HWY 102 from the Roberts Creek side from the powerline below near Conrad Road. I found it – but end up going up a DH trail that was not rideable uphill.
The trail had SEVERAL creek gap jumps of over 20 feet and you must have a serious screw loose to gap these jumps. Ridiculous.
I ended up at top of the viewpoint (start of White Knuckle Tight) – The views were spectacular and worth the climb.
