    Hi all, had a nice ride yesterday. A loop around lake Apopka with a spin through the Lake Apopka Restoration Area West.

    Maybe - after the dirt I did 6 passes up Sugarloaf getting ready for next weeks HH 100.

    By the end I was just about ready for the buzzards ;-)

    BTW - are you doing the HH 100? Think I will start early 7:00 AM or so to avoid the pack and let the racer boys catch me later and just enjoy the ride.

    Later, Axlenut

    Many memories of that area. I still remember Art Grindle jumping on the hoods of cars at his Wheel Ranch. The bike I rode back then was an old Schwinn 3 speed, my only obstacles were wind and those sand trucks that wanted to see how close they could get to me with their side mirrors. Great pics!

    I bought the Moto CX bike about 2 years ago. BTW - I have five bikes, most of the pictures have been of the steel fixie as it is probably my favourite bike to ride; however, the CX bike is a close second and it is really nice to mix things up.

    The long range forecast for Sunday looks very good - really looking forward to the big ride.

    Take care, Axlenut

    Nice pics. Re: the one that shows your bike on the bridge: don't you carry a spare tube, inflator of some kind, rudimentary tools?
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Yes, I just prefer to keep it all off the bike - hate rattles. I use a fanny pack and have lots of fix it stuff, lets see - a chain multi tool, a master link, CO2 inflators + the inflater, at least one spare tube, a patch kit, tire boots, a mini pump, two tire pry bars, credit card, small cell phone. BTW - notice I keep the dork plate on - the thought is it might save the day if it keeps the rear dérailleur out of the spokes if I hit a large stick or crash.

    Later, Axlenut
