WOW, it was a hot one last night at Zorinsky. We put off the ride until 7:30 so it could cool down a bit, it made it a whole degree cooler than it would have been had we started normal time. With all the heat the trail was a little less busy and that was nice. We'll be riding again on Thursday for the TACO Ride and either Saturday or Sunday morning this weekend.

Hope to see you there...

Monday Night Zorinsky Ride

Omega and Alpha made the ride and we made it into a workout which was good, it was a little windy which made it more of a challenge. 30 minutes and 40 seconds was the best I could do on our second lap, I am sure I kept OMEGA back a bit, you see he glides through the wind a little better than the Big Dog. (not to mention he's in much better shape) BUT we did work up a lather. We'll at least that gives me something to shoot for next time. No WIND is probably a 3 or 4 minute freebie.

The trail was a little crowded too, several walkers and riders with not much knowledge on how to keep yourself safe on the trail, oh well, thats why we try and go elsewhere on whe weekends cause its MORE crowded then.

WITH ALL that being said this trail is the perfect trail for someone just starting out and maybe not into doing a long or quick ride. If you havent been there its basically 2 big loops, kind of like a figure 8. Each loop is somewhere around 3.75 miles or so, you can easily do any combination you like and any distance you like.

We'll be riding again on Thursday for the world famous TACO RIDE....

Saturday Morning Marathon - WELCOME TIM

The Saturday Morning Marathon was a good ride and the weather was nice. Eric, Tim Taylor and myself set off headed south (with the wind) and made pretty good time with one break at St Mary's. Democracy to Culvers and back was 26.7 miles according to my computer but the trip back felt like 20 due to the wind out of the north. Actually on the Keystone south of Q Street you are kind of exposed to the wind and elements, once we got back north of L street the ride was a bit easier. We DID get a workout and best of all we initiated ONE MORE WILD DOG....

Welcome TIM TAYLOR to the WILD DOGS, we just need to figure out his nickname now...

Zorinsky Ride

What a great night for a ride, the sun came out just as we were hitting the trail. The wind was out of the north a bit and we rode clockwise, saw a few deer and the trail wasn't to congested with the exception of a couple of times on the dam. Rode with Tim Taylor, Dutch and Lucy, its always better riding in a group. Dutch and Lucy took off after the first lap and Tim and I hit the second one right after Dutch asked if anyone needed an extra tube, nope, we are good. Well we were but we Tim did have a flat a couple of miles into it.... HUMMMMMM....

We'll see you on the trails - BIG DOG

Taco Ride - June 4th - Welcome CRASH

Welcome our newest member - Epsilon, Matty "CRASH Dog" Hilding. He's ready to run with the pack and his first ride was quite memoriable. A little quick turn off the trail toward the steak house combined with a little speed and a little gravel caused a little tumble. Thank's to Crash's cat like reflexes he didn't get TOO skinned up or hurt. The bike was another story (see pic below) BUT thanks to a kid from the BIKE RACK we were able to nurse it back up the trail and safely home.
The TACO Ride was interesting as usual and there is always quite a few things to see on the ride. Lots of GRID lock trying to take an alternate route via the South Omaha Bridge trying to avoid an accident on the interstate. L Street east from about 50th is more blocked up with construction and slower than any accident would have been. We'll post a few pics here and the rest can be seen at our picassa site at the link listed below these pictures or to the right on our blog.
