A Nice Riding Weekend before heading to the Emerald Isle
I'm writing this post while waiting to board a flight to the Irish Software Show in Dublin, Ireland. Before I go, I thought I'd let y'all know about the killer weekend I had tooling around on my bike.
Saturday was Big Head Todd and the Monsters at Red Rocks, so I had the pleasure of joining Bruce and The Professor for our annual Ride to Red Rocks. We were slow getting out there (as usual), but had a great time at the show. 17th row seats and plenty of excellent music. The ride home was dark and fast; arriving at my house at 1:30. After late night Jerusalems, I crawled in bed at 2:30.
Six hours later, I hopped out of bed, jumped in my car and drove down to Castle Rock for Elephant Rock. I did the 25-mile off-road ride on my mountain bike. Unfortunately, there was no singletrack, and I'm pretty sure I was the last one to start the race. The ride itself was nice and windy with plenty of sun. When I reached the highway on the backside of Castlewood Canyon, I caught a stellar tailwind and had a blast cruising to the finish line.

If you're going to be at the Irish Software Show this week, be sure to stop by and say hi. I'll be speaking about The Future of Web Frameworks on Wednesday at 7:30pm and Comparing Kick-Ass Web Frameworks early on Thursday morning.
