It has been a while since I’ve posted an update. I didn’t have much going on over the winter of 2020-2021 and then life changed directions in the spring. I’m going to do my best to get back on the wagon here. It keeps me accountable. Lately I’ve been doing a bit more mountain biking than I have over the last few years. Trying to get out there again and enjoy the activity I love.

I had a set back with activies in early June. Some ass-hat broke into my garage in the middle of the night and took the three mountain bikes I had in it. Thousands of dollars gone in minutes. With the desire for bikes over the last year or so, the supplies are very limited. I wasn’t able to get the bike I really wanted. Ended up settling for second best. I guess I can’t complain about that. The more I ride the two bikes I did get, the more I enjoy them. I don’t think the bike really matters as much as the joy just getting out brings me right now. I’m back at it and I will continue!

My go to trail right now is Mueller. Haven’t pushed it beyond Elephant rock yet. I’m still trying to get my legs and lungs back. With my schedule right now I’m stuck to riding it after work during the week. That helps with the heat some anyways so it works out.

Fishing might be on hold for a while. I’ve moved back to SLC, so I need to find some new places to fish. Same with they kayaking. I’m thinking Little Dell might be the next place I try to get out on the kayak. I just need to find the time and some cooler weather.

I present to you the Ibis Ripley and Pivot Mach 6. Like I said before, I can’t complain with these two bikes. Happy to have something to replace the ones I lost. Both pictures are taken at the same spot on the trail. I rode them each a day apart to see how both did on the same trail. Both did great going up and down. The Mach took a bit more effort to get it up the mountain, but it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. I need to still do some adjustments on the Ripley. I keep taking it out and forgetting I need to slide the seat back and up some.
