The adventures of one fat bastard; getting back to his former svelte self again through riding his bike.This afternoon was spectacular! I went out to our county's little big bike park, Pinehill Park in RutVegas, VT. I cranked out 6 1/2 miles in 2.25 hours; hiking half of it of course, but the fact being this is further than I have ridden in many, many, many eons. I absolutely love my new bike and I would like to thank Specialized for making such a versatile bike like the Enduro. I also made a new riding buddy after the ride named Will. I almost ran him over on Droopy Muffin, but I yielded and let him pass by. I had a detour because I got lost out on Catacomb and wound up at Evergreen Cemetery. I was like what the hell am I doing out here... must have missed a turn somewhere... Errr, nope it just drops off there and you have to fine your way back. I did find out that the S-Works Eskar tires f'ing suck on pavement, much rolling resistance. I eventually made it back to the trail head and checked out the bikeshop on the premises. Then I officially met Will. I wil continue to document my progress as time goes on! Later - The Fat Bastard.
