Last weekend I had the weekend off from racing and I decided that since I kept blowing up in races I needed to get back to the basics and get some nice long slow rides. Generally, I've found that for me the best way to get in shape or improve my form is to do a few long slow rides and with two more races left before a break from racing at the end of July I wanted to improve my form a bit.
Saturday my friend Matt from Jechon came out and we rode single track for 4 hours around Yangji. I have lots and lots of great mountain bike trails around where I live and I love showing them to people. I stayed with Matt a few weeks ago for the 100km Bak Dal Jae mountain bike race and it was fun to finally get the chance to ride with him. We rode 4 sections of single track with road in between each one it probably ended up being about half road half off road distance wise. It was pretty hot weather but we both made it through the ride ok. Below are some pics Matt took on the ride.
Sunday I rode with some of my friends from the Osan Air Force Base and some new friends as well. There were 7 of us in total. It was also my last ride with Aaron because he is going back to Indiana for the summer. I rode from my house and met Dan (a rider from England that rides for team Storm Riders here in Korea and also happens to live in Yongin) and Kevin (who Dan met while out biking on the Han river) in front of Yongin University and then we rode 30 more minutes south to meet up with Aaron, Luis and company. We went and did a nice climb down in Ansung and then headed north back towards the Yongin University. After eating lunch with Dan I rode home getting in another solid 4 hours on the bike.
This weekend I'm racing at the F1 race track in Young Am in the south west corner of Korea. I'm looking forward to the race and I think the flat curvy track will suit me well.
