Today I took my first real trail ride on my new 26". Even though we had some rain last night conditions were great with most of the trails firm and just slightly tacky. The ride was an absolute blast. I didn't bring a real camera and didn't want to stop to take more photos but here's one from my cell phone.

Haha, I sweat like a pig when I ride, but from sheer physical output, not clothing. And since I usually ride very early--and the temps have been in the upper 40's to low 50's, I don't get overly hot from what I wear.

But I ALWAYS cover as much skin as possible, with long sleeves (wicking) shirts, leg warmers to cover what my cycling shorts don't, a nose guard, hat and the helmet drape, sunglasses, leg guards also cover, pulse gloves, and of course, sunblock [Mexoryl xl] --the best you can buy.

Not a surprise that I am not a sun worshipper. Besides the skin cancer risk, it will age you faster than smoking and drinking; two more things I don't do. Wow, I guess I don't have much of a life haha!

Well, it is a Triton! (the welds are immaculate!) but what makes everything pop is all the red anodized details. Chain ring bolts, nipples, valve cap, valve cap nut, home made spooner, KH saddle, the bolts that retain the brake hose, the HT pedals, the Avid Elixir CR brake, and soon self extracting crank bolt nuts! Talk about attention to detail! I can't begin to think where he came up with all of the anodized parts! It's dreamy!

also, his 24" wheel and disc brake slips right in without adjusting the spacers from the last Uni!

Daffodil Classic

I rode 65 miles Sunday with the Tacoma Wheelmen on the fairly flat, fun and family friendly Orting Trail. Not a "Chamber of Commerce day, but not nearly as bad as the forecast. The Tacoma Wheelmen include an open invite to unicyclists for the Daffodil Classic.

Todays route to work. I choosed to go by main roads. Unfortunately due to major construction areas it was a bad idea. Took much longer than my "secret go around & between the fences" route.

Well that's not so bad then - your vids always make it seem like it's about 70-80F+

I hardly ever manage to get out when it's that cool - it's either hot and dry or cold and raining...

I'd love to live somewhere that's predominantly sunny but stays cool (at least in the evening/morning).
