BK's words from the road
I just thought I'd check in before I board my plane to Austin. I am currently in Arizona where I've spent the past week riding and hanging out in the desert, mountains, sun, snow, skateparks, trails, schools, ditches, and other Arizona establishments.
Thanks to Adam Baker for being a good host and riding buddy. He did flairs, told funny stories, introduced me to some new vocabulary, drank obscene amounts of Arizona iced green tea and has a nice, well-developed beard.
He also made me ride trails, which was amazing; I even took a pic of dirt on my bike since I usually only ride trails once in a blue moon.
The parks were amazing as well. The Chandler bike park was my favorite—no thanks to my rental car getting backed into, or my bike being stolen by a 9-year-old kid (got it back), or me getting sick... but somehow it was still a really, really fun trip. I think warm weather, sunshine, Adam Baker and KC Badger had a lot to do with that.
