turkey day ride


i joined about 25 other riders at chubb trail this morning for the annual turkey day ride. long ago, it used to be a dogfish ride, but it morphed into general pandamonium and anybody and everybody shows up.


even though i felt like cooked spam, it was such a great morning i couldn't pass up the chance to take the innagural ride on the Oiz. meeting up with others always lifts the spirits, too, so i couldn't help but ride better than i felt.


chubb is in such great shape now. the leaves are mostly mashed down, and make for a near carpet smooth trail in some spots. oh, yes, the classic chubb rocks are there, though. i do love that trail. the Oiz rides awesome! the fit seems nearly spot on. the suspension is perfect for racing and getting out of the saddle to sprint or power up a climb is killer. the kaiser-built sid is very impressive...smooth and just the right ramp-up on larger stuff. if you have one of these dogs, give kaiser a call to make it bark. the juicy ultimates broke in fast and nicely. what can i say, it's a fabulous bike.


and, for your viewing pleasure, i decided it was time for a little family photo action, impromtu, using the timer on the camera. it took a few tries, but it turned out well, i think.
