Mountain Bike Handlebar Ends
The end is near
Three hours later, I'm finally in sight of the Colorado River and the end of this ride. I've had my camera tucked away for most of the ride because of the rain. But this trail is just so indescribably beautiful, and so insanely perched on the edge of this cliff, that I had to stop for a picture.
The rain has let up enough over the last hour that I've been able to dry out. But the temperature has dropped so much that I'm truly in trouble if it begins to rain again. Over the last 20 miles, my gears have become so gummed up with red mud that my bike barely shifts. My disc brakes are squealing with mud and grit.
Even worse, about 10 miles back, one of my handlebar grips became completely saturated and broke free. It swivels and slips on the end of my handlebar as easily as if someone had injected it with oil. This is bad, and it's already caused me to crash once. But I'm tired, and sore, and I don't want to get caught in the rain again, and I'm really, really craving the avocado and salsa back at camp that I can't stop thinking about...
So, it's onward to the end. Just across the river, over Arches National Park, a huge storm is dumping massive columns of rain, and rumbling with a nearly constant barrage of thunder.
Ross is a large part of how I ended up living in Germany. He lived here long before me and invited me out for a visit. On this visit I fell in love with the city and I met my girlfriend Meghan.
He has been in Australia since last September and just got back a few days ago. He is already hard at work doing what he loves.
It's nice to have another Scotsman around. He is a good man and if nothing else, we can share and appreciate an Irn-Bru together.
