August of 2016 we had a lofty goal of riding 100 miles in the month. We were sitting right around 75 miles for the month by this ride and we knew that if we pushed we could beat our goal of 100 pretty easily.
We headed out in the afternoon around 4pm and that has good and bad that come with it. Bugs taste awful but the sunsets are great. I didn't find anything that needed to be photographed on the way there, it was just a good ride to get out and push ourselves.
Phipps Park is a local hot spot that offers some good hiking and a Diamond X Disc Golf Course which spans the whole park. I took a cool shot from the top course from 2015 that I included in the gallery. It was a super hike to get up there but once you are up there it's beautiful. We put up 16 miles on the ride today, which puts us at 91 of 100 miles for the month; thats just another ride or two short ones and we got our goal. Outlook good #1000kStrong #RidingMT
