a day and a half off the bike - albeit - with two sweet skate sessions to assuage the pain. this morning was money..not money like cash - but money like that stuff that has no firm definition - that stuff which is ethereal and hard to capture. elusive. it was sweet. so sweet - that we are going to ride here - BEFORE - we drive to the butte - and then we are going to ride again tomorrow evening down there - and then we are going to ride - and ride and ride - and I don't leave my boy's side for any reason other than said riding for 4 days. now - that's money. i am going to take him to the mtn bike hall of fame in crested butte and review how high the bar is set. should set the tone.
