    Not exactly today's ride, but Oakeshott reminded me of this one. This was after a 20 minute race after starting off pretty much clean. It was pretty interesting

    Rode 2 loops on one of my go-to solo trails. Couldn't get the boy motivated to get out of bed and ride with me today. Changed my first flat tire ever on the trail about 6.5 miles not the first loop. Not sure if I'm still considered a noob at this point (just started riding earlier is year), but hadn't had a flat while riding where I was equipped to change the tube out. Took me longer to get the Camelbak & gloves off, get the tools & spare tube out than it did to actually fix the flat.

    2011 Spec' Hardrock Disc. with Captain Control 2.0" front and Hardrock'r 1.95" rear. Both tires did well on day 1, day 2 added a lil more snow and more ruts from other riders.

    Day 1 was fantastic i must say. It's totally ride-able. Day 2 added a lil more snow and there were more ruts that could throw your steering off...this was mainly on parts of the trail that were not packed down via sled. So Day 2 was a lil more difficult...doesn't help that i had my DSLR slung around my neck thus i'm not 100% riding.

    Hardpacked snow = fantastic to ride on.

    I am from VT and could hardly ride my bike if I wanted to! I've got nearly two feet of snow on my trails that is not packed down. Even if I tried to ride, my F9 has rim brakes that do NOT stop in the snow. Oh well. I just have to sit and wait for my '13 Cobia to come in to my LBS.

    I walked past mine in the living room and wondered how the front tire could possibly be flat as it's brand new and I just mounted it up with a fresh dose of Stan's three days ago...
    Turns out, I left the presta valve open. Went for a night ride the other night that way. WOOO HOO!
    I like turtles

    Did two laps. 16.7 miles. My longest to date. Didn't want to stop, but saw a buddy on both laps, at the same place so chatted, then rode the rest of my final lap back with him.

    I love riding alone at night.. Freaks me out a little, but there's no wild animals to be afraid of where I ride.

    I got a cheap light set up just to see if I was interested. It was enought to get me hooked, I just need a much much better light set up. And I only had handlebar mounted lights so I could go too fast around corners, I need a helmet light.

    Not today but a couple of weeks ago... My son wanted me to pop a wheelie on my 29er, so I did, not being satisfied with the height or distance of it he requested another one. So I gave it to him, unfortunately my shorts got caught on my bike pump, so I lost control and WAM! All pavement

    got out the old haro i had before my giant and took it to the trails. its been close to 2 months since i rode and with the weather being slightly warmer than normal, i took advantage of it, even if it was on my old bike. it was great. also reminded me of how out of shape (cardio wise) that i was.

    Put a type 2 derailleur on and tested it out. Seems to work pretty good. We will see in the long run.

    Rode through some muddy trails. Had fun. Going back tomorrow for more! Hopefully it dries out.

    Buddy gummed up his bike pretty good and got something stuck in the derailer and broke it. Wasn't fun.

    New here and to mountain biking. So, hello guys!

    Went on my first trail ride ever this morning. I had a blast, but man... it really wiped me out. I'm a pretty active guy in decent shape; I box and run and all that so I didn't think my endurance was going to be so poor on the trail. I rode for a measly hour and 20 minutes and am totally exhausted as I type this. Not that this is a bad thing... I did buy this bike (a Motobecane 300ht) to have a fun way to stay active. And I really did have a good time, so it's totally worth it.

    I am wondering if anyone can offer me some tips on how to improve my biking endurance while on some easy trail rides..? Am I wrong to take the approach of just getting out there and riding? Should I start off on the road only or something? Also, I think I wasn't shifting gears at the right times.. For example, I would switch when I hit a new terrain, but I feel like I should be shifting before I actually hit it if that makes any sense. But, I wasn't shifting before because I found it hard to predict or judge what wasn't immediately ahead of my front tire. Any advice is appreciated!

    I use my mountain bike as an exercise machine that comes with perks. 12 miles in 75 minutes after a 3.5 mile run. Very hilly terrain with a lot of soft dirt. Lots of fun.

    It's been raining for days, so all the trails are closed. That left me riding around town. I road around the neighbor and through down town Dallas. Then for kicks, I road up our 8 story parking garage.

    No riding I adjusted the suspension on my new bike and then took it out to ride to find out the rear tire was leaking.

    Maybe tomorrow!

    I rode it in this beautiful California weather(40 degrees). The trail was still partially frozen and made for some scary moments. All in all it was pretty fun.

    Cleaned my rotors and pads from all the muddy, sandy gunk that dried on it since the last time I rode. Tweaked with my handlebar position a bit. De-glazed my braking pads... I can't go riding my back hurts like hell.

    Lots of rain around here this week, so can't really hit the trails. Did a quick pavement ride with my son & nephew today to keep the legs in shape. Nephew is on a Madone 5.2 carbon, son is on a Trek 2300 AL road bike, and I'm bringing up the rear on my GT Sensor 9r. They totally left me on the climbs (my Sensor is 2x the weight of their roadies), but the 9r actually kept pretty good pace on the downhills.
