Did I get up at 1:30 AM to get set for an epic ride before work?

Did I head off into the night with ultralight, ultrabright custom LEDs on the bars and my helmet?

Did I come face to face with a bobcat at 4:30 AM?

Did I see fields of illuminated lupine?

Was I at 10,000 feet in the San Juans at sunrise?

Did I shave 3 min off of a PB climb up a local 2000' singletrack climb in the dark?

Did I shave another 3 min off in the 2nd climb in the early dawn during the 4th hour?

Somebody pinch me.

Good lord wacko, don't let anyone pinch you. Who wants to get off that kind of horse. I'd love to have seen that cat.

I've only done something like that a couple times. It feels like you are cheating death by sneaking in some extra living.
Only fools sleep when they could be riding.

Nice Dave. Sounds like a lot of fun.

Wow...nucking futs, awesome dedication. Though lately, I've been contemplating similiar ideas but for other reasons realted to forest closures!

Just a word on the Bobcat though. You do realize that a Mountain Lion cub (spotted)looks pretty similiar to a bobcat. Legs are a little longer, though. We had 3 come down to the yard a few years ago and play around with one another.

Sent you email...hope to see you Sunday.
