    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.

    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.

    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.

    The typical, rode my bike to the gym and back. I usually use the rides as a warm up and cool down when hitting the weights.

    Rode out nearly to the end of the Eagles Spur Rail-Trail near my home in SW Durham County, NC. The trail ends at a very pretty spot overlooking Jordan Lake. I pulled up about 50 yards shy of the end, having passed two bikes leaning against a tree, when I saw at the very end a hammock with two folks apparently sleeping in it...clothes in a pile underneath the hammock. I turned around as quietly as I could and rode back. I don't know if those folks know how many people run out there as well...

    Went riding for the first time in the snow today, and second ride since new years (it's been raining every time I ended up having free time, somehow).

    A little mud, and a lot of slick layers of snow. Had a good time with a friend, and we even met a cool new guy to add to our group.

    Then I spent an hour or so at home cleaning both my bike and myself, lol.

    Speed or Traction?


    Time to get her dirty.
    Set em up in the "SPEED" direction on the rear. I had one in "TRACTION" and it cost me a fortune in derailleur hangers and even an XO deraulleur. Once I spun it around to speed, I didn't have any more trouble and didn't notice any difference in traction.

    I should have elaborated... It would pick up large sticks and pitch them into the wheel. Before I could react, it did major damage.

    Started riding about 3 weeks ago, and love it. Want to ride everyday, but just don't have the time. Anyway my brother and I went out today and did about 18 miles on a running/biking trail and a little off road trail riding. Talked about how I haven't fallen yet. Well, that was a mistake. I was a little more aggressive on the off road dirt trail with no issues, but then I made myself look like the beginner I am. While going down part of the gravel trail my foot slides off the pedal right about the time i get to a curb that I need to get over. Needless to say, I made it over the curb just not in a graceful fashion. After talking about needing platform pedals and shoes that actually grip, the mountain biking gods showed me that it needed to be sooner than later. I now have platform pedals and some five ten freeriders. Thanks for reading my post. I figured everyone needed a laugh at the end of the day

    After months of snow and weeks of riding on pavement, I finally got on some dirt this afternoon. Trail selection was limited, but it still brought a grin to my face.

    It'll only get better from here.

    LoL I saw. It's still flat, but I suppose that's all relative. There's a reason I moved to Idaho from Texas nine years ago.

    Where you at? I grew up in the Austin and Amarillo areas.

    LOL... You're right... I just have to keep telling myself that it's fun...

    I live in Corpus Christi now, but grew up riding in Albuquerque NM... used to do a lot of BMX there in the 80's... would ride DH on a BMX bike back then..

    Love "The Duke" and Corpus. Both have a lot of flavor ... literally! I miss the New Mex food and those delicious gulf browns. Definitely can't get comida like that here in Idaho ... unless you cook it yourself.

    Haha... no worries on the remarks... if I can take crap for wearing full face helmet and going without the lycra, then "flat" is no problem.

    I bet you do miss the food... I certainly would... it's amazing how mexican food in NM is completely different from mexican food in TX though... lol

    Yeah, you've got "Tex-Mex" raidating from places like Austin and "New Mex" emanating from Santa Fe. I like both, but I've always regarded New Mex as healthier and more "thoughful."Tex-Mex tends to be a big plate of something with rice and beans on the side, all smothered with sauce and cheese.

    And let's not forget those green chilies ... !

    Mmmmm... I miss the smell of green chili roasting... it permeates the air in Albq... I also miss blasting down some no-name trail in the Manzano mts... but I do get to surf here and ride flat singletrack

    Took a nice ride on some semi-technical single track. Very dry day for march, all the dirt wasn't packed it was loose.

    This thread is titled "What did You do today on your mountain bike?" not "What is your excuse for not riding your mountain bike today?".

    No go put a tube in that b!tch and ride.

    That would be a solution.

    What about the rain that just started pouring?
