Monarch Update

Rode Monarch yesterday and today in the semi-dark. Jim and Carol joined me both days, with Jen also coming along for the ride today. Yesterday was quite interesting as Jim had a loud blowout on Wildcat at about 30 mph. He had one of the larger nails I have ever seen in a bike tire through the sidewall and out the tread of his rear tire (see picture). Today was less eventful, but I hit 78.3 on the downhill...... (yes kph). On to Minneapolis for a few days, but back tomorrow night. See you out there on Friday. Out.

Sounds like you're going to be the fast one again this part of the season. I've pretty much reduced riding to weekends and maybe one or two days per week.

This is where the DIK part takes over and the SNEL part is lost.
