Ventured off in route to find this near perfect rated taco joint I found on good Fri when was released from work early. Only problem when was like 4 miles away from it when found it and my wallet was way way back at the car. So.. Take 2. This time ensured had money! Around Cecil we headed out across back roads(Hills!) to get into southpoint where Los Chiludos is located. The fish tacos were delicious. They had some awesome beans. They were garlic flavored beans but was not any garlic in then. Going to mess around and try and make them. Think is making a garlic tea and hydrating dried pinto bean in that. Maybe? I dunno The salsa we got to start was great like I Chipotle kind of spice with chared veggies. And of course booze for fuel to make it on the ride back! This was…

I got my bike cleaned up and ready to go for this season this week. I rode to work and home once this week and a ride on Montour Trail. This year’s new years list I wrote an ambitious one, with a few successes and failures already in Q1 of this year, but all I can do is try my best. One on the list is to track 1k miles this year biking so better to start sooner than later to not get behind. Looks like snow is not completely over so will might be little time before get consistent routine down. I took last season up to the point there was snow and put my bike away a muddy mess like a fool so was little task of cleaning.

Biked on the Montour Trail today and meet the 500 Mile marker I was shooting for this year. Now just need to see how many miles can get in for the National Bike Challenge. Currently have 999 points and 3 free beers at OTB Bicycle Cafe.

Rode on Montour trail and stopped off at cecil to visit bedners farm got a great snack of some produce they sold. This place had some amazing pants. One for example they had bay leave plants. We had picked out a cantaloupe, amazing yellow cherry tomatoes, and purple pepper which enjoyed little picnic back on the trail. Sure beats working! This little guy was sitting in bottom of tray cactus to get discarded. I asked something about the color and if it lasted they didn’t know as the greenhouse closed in several months. Was told that these will root on dry dirt?! Took this numb of cactus on ride of its life. I need to remember to fight the urge to water it.

There were spots that were washed out and parts the added to fill some holes. I am not sure what ones were worse. I hit some quick sand on return down hill and all most bit it. With giving it my all just missed my 1hr point. I blame trail conditions and heavy bike.

This entrance is nice because you can cross over two train bridges. If you head south you cross rt22 in about 3 miles south of this entrance. This image is a bridge you cross in the north direction on the trail.
