SQUEEZING IN A RIDE AT ROCKY RIDGE WITH CHRIS//August 19, 2015

The mountain biking gods got together today and arranged it so that I could squeeze in a ride with Chris Keller this afternoon at Rocky Ridge.  I really was on a time crunch so we tried to get in as much as we could.   Today we decided to stay up on top of the park and not do a lot of climbing.  With the temperature in the 90s again I was just fine with that.
Chris and I estimated that this black snake was about 4 feet long!  It was so big that I honestly thought it was a branch laying across the trail.

Our ride today was only six and a half miles.  The view from the top of the park was amazing.  The highlight was the four foot black snake I ran over on my Stumpjumper.  I honestly thought it was a branch lying across the trail until I saw it move in my peripheral vision as I rode across it.  Let it be known that I HATE SNAKES.  I must be getting better because I was willing to get off of my and go back to take a picture of it.  
A nice ride with a great friend.
