Sorry for the Lame title but really wasn't in the mood to think of anything clever. Well I have been trying to ride more and more, but it gets hard to find time sometimes. I am trying to spend time with the lady, work a part time job on top of my full time job, and try to catch up on some long over due rest. With the weather being nice and all it is hard to find time to right on the ole blog, so I apologise for that.
Anyway, I just was notified that I will be doing some Part time work for Salsa Cycles . I think it should be fun.
I rode Lebonon hills tonight after work on my KONA, it was amazing. The bike rode very well with the new rear shock. I am going to try to ride that bike a little bit more, but who knows.
Enough of the mindless ramblings (even though that it what thi s Blog is all about)....Here are some Photos of me getting Rad...........

ahhh Spring

I love this weather, it makes me a much happier person. I am uber excited to get on some singletrack and ride. I have been slowly getting my bikes ready for the season. On friday night I went out with my lady, and when I got home I couldn't sleep, so instead I set up my 5th Element Rear shock....till 2:30 in the AM in my Dirty Shop!

I woke up around 8 on Sat. against my will, the reason for the unwilling wake-up....WORK!!! Yep I picked up a part time job wrenching at Freewheel Bike. I rode there, showed up and saw that BG was there to work also. Damnit!! I didn't need to go in, so mounted on my ghetto cruiser and went home. I decided since I had the day off I would go dirt jumping. A few others and I met up and some Dirt Jumps in North MNPLS. They were actually in good condition. After a while of riding the rythm section, we decided we wanted to make a burm ( a 5-6ft tall one at that). So we got a diggin, and found this huge piece of concrete( about 12in thick and 6 ft long) right in our way. So our dreams of the burm were crushed.

After riding the jumps, I was super tired. Mainly because I'm out of shape. So I laid around the rest of the day and then headed to the skatepark. I showed up and there was only 2 other people there. It was nice in away, but it just seemed to be lacking energy. After a little while Dustin and a few others Showed up and brought the energy back up. All in all a good time but I hurt this morning.

So there you go ....a little bit of an update for the blog, nothing to exciting.
