It is hump day and I have made plans with some friends to go hike Borah Peak. And to make the weekend more fun to go see more friends in Pokafello. Another weekend with friends is at hand. So now I transition from recovery from last weekend to ramping up for another. But first … a ride into Pattee Canyon tonight.
As I floated up the hills like a butterfly and hammered down them like a bus I couldn’t help but think ahead to next weekend. A big road bike ride into Idaho that is like 60 miles. A gravel road climb to the backside of the Bitterroots which could add another 15 or so miles. I am guessing at the mileage here folks. Then to top it off a 25 mile run through the Roots coming out at Blodgett Canyon. Yea! its MAD.
Then it happened. I realized how fun mountain biking is. Missoula in the fall is beautiful.
