It’s Wednesday already? 

It’s Wednesday already? 

 My life is legit flashing by.  Had an interesting ride Tuesday morning. Ponyface wasn't sure he wanted a longe warmup (well skip it next ride but he doesn't make the rules here - we did 6 min) and he continued his silly stickiness at mount up.  He's not standing still during solo mounting so I [...]

Sunset success

Sunset success

I changed my ride times to the evening last week and the Fritzer seemed to enjoy himself.  He was super brave with car lights in the mirrors and the sunset casting strange light behind them.
