This ride was short on distance, but long on conditioning.03/02/06
I rode to the short steep climbs by the tram, on my mountain bike, and climbed up to the water tanks, 3 times. I didn't have much daylight, and I didn't want to bother with my headlight, so I decided to stay close to home.
It was very warm today, with temps in the low 70s, but breezy, and gray.

I took the road bike out today, and went up to the picnic grounds. I timed myself at 20:40. That's my second fastest time, ever. Progress. As I began the descent, a fox, or maybe a small coyote, darted out into the road, right in front of me. I grabbed my brakes, and skidded, and somehow managed to avoid running the little critter over. If I would have hit him, it would have been a bad ending, for the both of us. I was going about 35 miles an hour.
I still had a little bit of daylight left, so I went up to La Cueva, to get some more climbing in. It was a beautiful sunny day, with temps in the upper 60s. I wore my shorts for this ride, and no leg warmers. Fantastic!
