Mountain Bike Weekend (on the road)

I had no work for three days, I rode my mountain bike each day. 

Single Speed KC (Swope Park mountain bike race) is less than a month away so I need all the practice I can get. Unfortunately 90% of my riding this weekend was on pavement so I still need a lot of practice. 

Driving to Swope takes time and I've always been more of a 'ski in ski out' kind of guy. But I need to start biting the bullet and loading the bike in the car. 

I haven't been to swope since last year and that needs to change before I line up with 120 other cyclists. 120... that's a lot. 

I'd love to get out there six times before the actual race. 

Plus I still need to have my bike converted to single speed.
