Updates to Blog Layout and Illness

As you can see, I have made some blog layout changes. I have not been riding much as I have been struggling with my health on two fronts. First and foremost I have been having sleep issues that are not allowing me to get a full night of rest. This leaves me totally exhausted and barely able to make it through my day. Throw in a day of hard exercise and it takes several days to recover. I am scheduled to see a specialist, but the first appointment I could get was April 29th. Second, I have been fighting wicked allergies this spring. The worst I have had in many years. While the rest of the country was being blasted with winter storm after winter storm...the PNW was warm and wet making the growing season come extra early.

I hope to be back on the trails soon

Stella Ride with the Growlers Crew

Great ride today with the Growlers Gulch crew today at Stella. Thanks to Ken and Paul helping direct us around the trails. They were slick with lots of slippery roots so it was technically challenging. On another note, it has been over a month since I last lubed my chain. This includes several wet rides and bike washes. My chain remains clean and silent...very happy with my bio-lube.
