      Did a 5K on Saturday in 20:30, which was great considering how early it is in the season! Since I knew I won my division (of 2), I hung around for the awards. They did overall women, then overall men, then they started in on age groups. Sigh. So I waited through all the age groups, but when they started raffling things off, I gave the event photographer a tap and asked her to go up and ask if they were going to do a wheelchair award. After some scrambling about, they managed to dig up my time and give out the award.

            Went out and rode up to the top of the
            Forbidden Fruit Flow Trail yesterday. First ride of the year in the high
            country.
            One small area of snow but, very good otherwise. I am little rusty
            but, felt pretty fast coming down the flow trail.
            Good warm-up for our Moab
            trip on Thursday.

              Jett - cool video, looks a little scary.

              Revis - liked your post about the electric assist. I can't safely balance an upright 2 wheeler, but can foresee possibly adding electric assist to my trike - something much more preferable than not using it at all. Our lives are all about accommodation, especially with SCI, but even without it; people with SCI just get a head start on accommodating as we get older.

              Participated in the Cap 2 Cap ride last Saturday, a big cycling event here in eastern Virginia. More than 2500 riders. Used to do the century ride each year back in the day, but was very happy to get in a metric half century, ~ 35 miles, this year. Felt good, weather was beautiful. I was less drained by the longer ride this year.

                Jett - great video - you probably think, 'Hey, I'm already paralyzed...lightening won't strike twice'. Really perfect trike trail. Great job. Keep those videos coming'. Hey Dan F - are you back to work?
                I keep paddling Tahoe. I wish it were the Pacific Ocean but really it is a jewel of a place to spend time in.

                    Jett,

                    Love this video. Is this a bike trail or hiking trail that allows bikes?

                      Yesterday I spent a couple of hours riding a Force 3 - I'm trying to decide if it's time to trade up from my 15 year old Top End Excelerator Gold. The sun has finally come out here after weeks of rain so I got a little sunburned.

                      Today I did the Colfax half marathon (pushrim division) in Denver - only my second half. My first was five years ago at sea level. Got a little more sunburned.

                        Revis – Good looking bike! I went to a electric assist kit on my handcycle mountain bike a year ago. It’s the only way I can keep up with those darn young Para’s.

                        Arndog – The risk of being hurt is in the back of my mind but, it’s not my main focus. There is something about being in the moment/zone that nothing else in the world matters except what is right in front of you. I find it extremely exhilarating and after 38 years of SCI I love that feeling of being live!

                        Dan F – This portion of the mountain bike trail is roughly three feet wide. Not very much room for error!

                        Tarheelandy – This is a mountain local bike trail. It’s about a three mile ride up to this section and the last 1/4 mile is steep with a half dozen switch backs. Coming back down to the parking lot is a blast!

                        Steve – You should join us on one of the Moab trips. I would be great to have you pass on some of your advanced MB knowledge!

                                Those are April, yeah?

                                Just super bad timing for me.

                                But I'll be there in Late June, I think I'll go river boating - it's hot!

                                You know my picture is on the interpretive sign about the history of the Slickrock Trail?
