Forest Park Klunker Ride



The organizers didn't even show up! Only two people besides myself showed up for the ride, one guy on a modern singlespeed and the other on a first year Specialized Stumpjumper. We rode up to Forest Park and went up Leif Erickson Drive. I had to leave them because my gearing was taller than what the dude had on the singlespeed, and needed to keep my cadence up so I wasn't "pedaling in squares" and tiring myself out. I made it up a little past the 6 mile marker and waited for them at the picnic bench. They didn't show, must have turned around. No worries, I just bombed back down, dodging flustered hikers and off-leash dogs.
