Bull Mountain Solo Ride

Wednesday, I headed up to Bull Mountain for an afternoon solo ride. Perfect spring weather.



Little over 20 miles. Lots of stops to take photos. Still got a good workout though, was mashing 32x18 on the single speed. Not exactly a mountain gear!


Supplies


My mountain bicycle, ready to rock and roll.


Beautiful. Only saw four people the whole time I was out there.


The start of the actual Bull Mountain trail, if you're going CW.


Old truck at the top of the mountain.


Bling


I didn't make it all the way up that.


Some hand held slower shutter speed action.


Chilling by the creek.

In other news, built me up a fancy new computer. My old one was mostly from late 2005 and was getting to be a real dog.

Loaded up the 64 bit version of the Windows 7 Release Candidate. Actually been a very good experience. No issues and everything is extremely snappy. Surprising for being pre-release Microsoft software.

Love playing games (CoD 5, Fallout 3, etc) at native res with all video options maxed out while still logged into work in the background.
