Barrel Roll Trail 5/2/09

I went for a solo ride this morning on Barrel Roll Trail in Santa Clara. I haven't riden it for a few months so I sort of forgot how much of a workout it is. I was using this as my training ride before I try Zen Trail in a few weeks.

The ride went really good for me. I forgot about all the tech stuff but there was nothing that held me back. It took me about an 1:45 minutes to run, which is a major improvement on my first time of about 3 hours. so I got some good photos, some good exercise, and I didn't crash.

My new shoes & clipless pedals

I picked up some very nice shoes and clipless pedals today. I got them at Red Rock Bicycle Co. located here in St. George.  I bought the specialized Taho MTB shoes with Shimano PD-M520 Pedals with the total cost of about \$120.00. After getting use to the pedals I notice at least 50% better pedaling efficiency and I only fell over twice. Getting clipped out was kind of tricky at first but you easily get use to clipping in and out.
