Soma Saga

Monthly milage on the Saga. Moslty around town and to the garden,

This month started well. I felt strong on the Labor Day ride up Mary's Peak. Then 2 weeks of no riding due to smoke really set me back. CRGA is in 2 days I don't feel very strong at all.

Beautiful first ride of fall and 5781. First ride since Mary's Peak two weeks ago. Historic forest fires had the valley smoked in for 10 days. Couldn't even go outside. AQI was in the hazardous range. Then came some rain, including a deluge thunder storm, and now the air is fresh and clean.

Just took it easy and stuck to the easy route, out Fern, back Bellefountain.
