I was inspired by a recipe for refried beans using bean flour so I figured I’d try and make some soup out of bean flour. It turned out good. We decided to pour the soup into edible tortilla bowls and serve it with steamed brussel sprouts.
We saw this group of bighorn sheep in Waterton Canyon. They are almost always out pretty close to the trail. The males weren’t out though. The males have the wide big horns that wrap around. some of the older females in this group have the shorter thin horns.
We spotted this young moose right outside Rocky Mountain National Park at Lily Lake
This past weekend I successfully mounted my tires tubeless to my Velocity Blunt Rims. I had been planning on doing this since I got the rims but They were running fine with the tubes so it wasn’t a priority. However, the dry trails have had me wanting more grip that running lower tire pressure can provide. I had everything I needed and since the bike needed a good cleaning and I had some free time on my hands and was a bit too tired to ride I figured I’d start the process.
Here’s my recipe for cheap and easy Tofu jerky. These are a great source of protein and a tasty snack on or off the trail.
Last weekend North Central Cyclery in DeKalb held the Gravel Metric, a metric century on mostly gravel and dirt roads. Over 200 riders showed up to compete in the non-competitive ride. It was more of a competition against the 110 degree heat and headwinds.
