Fall Fun (photos)

Since the leaves have started to change, my mindset has as well. No longer do I feel the need to squeeze rides in, or bust my ass on my bike. I was getting a bit worried towards the end of the summer. I really do like riding my bike with friends, and for fun, but my mind and body were telling me to train. Lucky for me, that mindset has shifted to riding with friends, drinking beer, and working. Check out a few photos of my fall adventure thus far.

You wanna sip a 40 with your old friends
But everybody chillin’ on the front porch
How am I supposed to live?” -UM

(i)photos of the week

I have not done photos of the week since the winter, but I can’t think of a better time to start it back up. The flowers have nearly faded in the high country, and soon we will welcome beautiful golden aspens.
