|Floating From GJ to Fruita - The Dragonfly Day|
Strava sent this notice to me via e-mail. Had no idea?? But its always refreshing when receiving positive acknowledgment. When I really think about it, I offer these unusual beliefs that are surprising. It's those rarified ideas that open new thought processes and move me in a fulling direction. Local Legend
The triple digits are tolerable but the winds haven't been a favorite. The Western Slope has been windy everyday since January. Those poor pressure gradients are all mixed up and I am so thankful that I am not a migrating bird these days. Its Been Weird
Before the smoke invaded the Valley, enjoyed a solid 5+hours in the saddle. Felt very strong all day and finally packed proper nutrition for inhaling while turning the cranks. I actually ate twice and consumed 3 liters of water while rolling along this perceptibly tangible long distance. This ride supersedes my awfully mercurial headspace. Not Bad
Sunday the 2nd of August was rough. Woke up way hung over from late night marauding around town on bikes. The Dude talked me into playing dress up and decking out the beach cruisers with holiday lights for a spin. So anyway, woke up early, threw the GT in the back of the truck, drove to Fruita, parked at the take out ramp there, and rode for 1 hr 14min INTO A HEAD WIND OF COURSE. The Dude was pleased we didn't have to shuttle vehicles before putting in. Nice
The float was truly radicle. Beautiful day for it. So many folks floating on rafts, SUP Boards, two canoes which seem to be an obsolete means of river transportation these days, and a number of groups locked up on inner tubes.

That lady Dana on top of the leader board is currently riding the Great Divide. That would be the route from Canada to Mexico. They obviously were not allowed into Canada but are having the time of their lives. So she clearly dominates our Strava group. Dana totally rocks in all facets of her life and I am proud to call her my friend for over 6 years now.
As for the numbers before the fire, 236mi /379km in 17 hours and 41 minutes, all before the 7th of August. So in my own world of make believe, back in the olden days, a normal 40 hour work week, I was on the saddle for almost half of that time. Classic
