    My son and I rode Swope Park in Kansas City for the first time. About a 45-minute drive for us, but all the reports we heard about it were true. Had a blast there (until my son taco'd his front wheel). Good mix of trail types, and all seem to have been done very well. We'll definitely be going back (once his bike is operational again!!!).

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    Too cold & dark by the time I got out of the office. So had a little workout, then got on the bike trainer (technically, not my MTB, since my wife's Crosstrail is on it). Watched a good bit of the "Life Cycles" MTB movie while on the trainer. Wow... the cinematography is like a work of art! Visually impressive film.

    Used mine all week as a pit bike for the King of the Hammers desert race. Worked awesome, and my friends made fun of me at the beginning of the week. They all used it.

    Today i went riding from about 1-4:30. I worked the pump track at Belle Isle Skills park and managed to get some air of of them. Also worked the drop off and got them solid. I also did a loop of buttermilk and forest hill park. took a bit to find the head of forest hill. big accomplishment of the day was riding stairs and getting my drop offs solid.

    When it's below 20 degrees (F), I ride tight technical courses in my basement....practice track-stands, balance/handling skills, etc. Fun way to keep sharp....

    Forgot to post this yesterday but my wife & I went out for our first mountain biking experience at Chicopee Woods. We did close to 10 miles and had a blast! Came home with wet shoes due to a failed creek crossing but we laughed about it.

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    Well on Saturday I was finally able to get back on dirt for the first time in weeks. Between snow, rain and the damnable freeze-thaw cycles around here, I'd been relegated to pavement rides. Arrived early to the trail after an overnight snowfall and got on virgin snow. Beautiful winter woods scenery, deer bounding through the trees, a real classic "get-back-to-nature" winter ride... Interrupted by my horrible, squealing Elixir 1 brakes!!! Must've gotten mucked up on the drive to the trail. Oh we'll, at least I got my jonesing for dirt satisfied.

    Rode in a huge pointless loop on a sidewalk for some 30 minutes, on my way back to home nearly crashed into some guy on a hardtail while going into a blind corner, nearly as in 6 or so feet.
    phew.

    wish i had some trails like that around here. trees and mountains are fun, but i'd like to do a desert ride one day, Moab, Utah to be specific

    ordered me a new front hub, and waiting for all my goodies to come from mail so i can get back on my bike. its been since November since i got to ride due to cold weather and broken bike and poorness.

    Did a few loops of a local trail, was windy but the trail is protected so it was a nice ride.

    Attempted a fire road ride today but any and all trails are like soup. Ended up doing a paved ride with my 8 year old son , three co workers and a dog.

    I picked up some new headlights for the wife and a new jersey. 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. We loaded up the kids and did a short ride on the local river trail before work. Loved every minute of it!

    Took my son (8 y.o.) out riding, teensy bit of singletrack, mostly paved rail-trail, a bit of wood chip trail (turned to slop by construction equipment using it right after a recent deluge, which he didn't enjoy at all), lots of fun.

    I rode mine up and down the paved bench roads here in town--the trails are still too snowy/muddy to ride.

    But the lower ones might be ready in a week if the current weather holds ...

    I rode my '96 Klein Attitude along the canal to Kiwanis Park today. I'm just getting back into riding and the 12 miles I rode seemed about right. The old Marathon fork seems to be in need of new seals but the Spinergy Spox wheels are still going strong.

    I went on a ride for the first time in a while. Enjoyed the "dry" weather here in Seattle while I was riding, only like 3 small mud spots. Good times.
