Sunday October 28, 2008 - Annadale

For today's ride we had these stellar riders: Alan (honorary Team A member); Gavin (coming from San Francisco with his chain all fixed from his previous ride in the Headlands); Jason (riding his brand new bike); Dana (showing off her Halloween outfit); Michael (visiting his girlfriend Dana from Arizona); Chadcito (who has been coming with a different demo bike in every ride); Eric (with his big shorts); Kristy (with only 3 mountain bike rides under her belt) and me.

Below is Jason toward the end of the ride. Are we bunking?....

And here is Kristy on her 4th mountain bike ride. She handled the challenge quite well, and is moving toward becoming a killer downhiller. And she is looking much better than Jason... don't you think?

The total riding time of this killer ride Dana and Eric put together was 4 hours (2 hours and 15 minutes of moving time). We climbed 2,800 ft in 18 miles. Click in the map below for more stats and a map:

I believe most people call it "bonking" or "hitting the wall."

I hit it kind of hard, when the effects of the night's previous drinking caught up to me. 5 or 6 beers at the video premier followed by a few drinks at the bar, then followed up with no less than 3x halloween parties crashed with drinks at each. Yeah, that will do it.

In Australia, what most people call "bonking" is something *totally* different. However, it is true that you could be hitting a wall while doing it.
