Sunday September 4, 2011 Started a big ride in Ketchum. We met at Java on Fourth around 9:30am. Drove out Warm Springs Road about 10 miles to the Frenchmen's Hot Springs and the Red Warrior Trail Head. From here the plan was to ride up the road another 7 miles to the South fork of Warm Springs. We got shuttled these 7 miles to conserve time and water. We forgot to bring a water filter for this big ride.
Came out at Red Warrior near the Hot Springs for a happy ending to a great big ride.
As a life time learner, I re-educate myself on the ever evolving technology landscape. For about half my working life I sold and supported recreational sporting goods for alpine skiing, camping and bicycles. Merging the Bicycle and Ski rental shops at Sun Valley Resort in Idaho was a special time during the 50th anniversary of the resort. Much of my volunteer work has been spent as an advocate for access to public land for bicycling. I currently volunteer at the Boise Bicycle Project. I helped apply for the grant and managed the development of a Bicycle School for children. This school is now part of the Boise Parks and Recreation ongoing summer program.
