To Laporte and back, with rear puncture at midway point. CO2 inflater was not in bag and therefore walked one mile before biking home 7 miles on the flat tire. Was able to average about 12-13 mph on the flat.

To top of Dam Hill and back. Felt pretty strong; only used granny gear for the Dam Hill. Ended off ride by doing a sprint from near stand-still to 37 mph (must have had some sort of tailwind, but it really didn't seem very windy!)

Carter Lake/Pinewood "A/A+" ride with Eddie and Velo One. Felt pretty good including climb up Carter Lake when Eddie & I dropped everyone, but started to fatigue and get dropped halfway up Pinewood. Started bonking with seizing quads on Trilby near Tori's place and had to refuel at end of official ride. 20 miles were riding to/from the start/finish at Lee's Cyclery on Harmony.

First time ridden Cranky since the Tour Divide after hastily put back the bike together. Went to the New Belgium Short Track race (and some "got lost" miles) and back. Unfortunately, middle chainring was too worn to hold the chain so I could not do the race.

Bellvue-Rist Canyon-Horsetooth-Bingham Hill (to/from home), exactly 100k. Gorgeous ride and took lots of pictures. A little cold at Stove Prairie while it rained. Climbing form and endurance definitely is not there but felt ok considering lack of training and no food during the ride.
