I rode in to Albuquerque again, this time to the house in Sandia Heights, and then we went out to see a movie. We saw "Stardust". It was very enjoyable. Claire Danes is the cutest thing, and Robert De Niro was a riot. After the movie we went back to the house, and I suited up for the ride back to Tijeras.

It was hot out, with temps in the upper 90s. I headed down the trail along Tramway, because I didn't feel like being next to the traffic, and as I neared Indian School, a prarie dog ran right in front of my bike. He came very close to being a squished prarie dog. I think that my front tire may have brushed his tail, that's how close it was.

I continued on, and as I headed up Tijeras Canyon, a jerk in a car yelled something at me. Fortunately, that doesn't happen too often, but it had me looking for a rock along the side of the road, in case they came back around.

I struggled up the climb to Raven Rd., and made it back to the house without any further incidents.

Two rides, in two days. That's pretty good for me. Training has officially begun.
