I'm Almost Gone

Tomorrow afternoon I'll be driving down to Canyonlands National Park (near Moab) to ride the White Rim trail on Saturday. I've wanted to do this ride for a few years now, and when Jeff Kerkove mentioned on his blog that a group was forming over on the MTBR forums, I investigated. Then got interested. Then decided to do it. I'll leave home tomorrow afternoon, drop some water at the fee booth, arrive at Mineral Bottoms to camp, get up around 4:30 am and start riding clockwise at 5:00. The full moon is today so we'll have moonlight in the morning (and in the evening, should we need it), but I'm talking a light too. I know some of the riders are strong, endurance types, but my game plan is to ride a mellow, sustainable pace so I don't burn out my legs. I'm feeling good on the bike lately so I hope it will be a good ride. The car is packed.

I put some Ergon GP1 grips on my bike today. I got the small size because they fit me best (Mark has some). They are WAY comfy and should be very nice for the White Rim ride.
