Back From Fruita

Brad and I just got back from 3 days in Grand Junction/Fruita, Colorado.  This was a trip on which we had been invited to join Rich and some of his buddies on their annual ride weekend in the Grand Valley.  All of the other guys canceled out, due to concerns about the weather.

I don't know where they got their forecast, but they need to change feeds.  The skies were partly cloudy to cloudy (big, puffy white clouds), the temperatures during ride time were between 50 and 65 degrees.  Yes, there were scattered showers, but we only got the merest sprinkle, once, on the trail.

Overall, the riding was so good, and we had such fun, that we both ended up feeling a bit guilty about it.  Brad rode his new Rivendell A. Homer Hilsen, and I rode the ti bike.  Both of us were rolling on 700x42c tires, and we rode almost every loop at the Loma exit.  The only trail we didn't hit was Moore Fun, for those of you familiar with the area.

I took my new Flip Video camera, and Brad shot stills (except when we traded cameras).  I will try to put together some watchable video, and post some pictures, later.  Right now, it's time to unpack.
