    What did You do today on your bike? (a thread for anything bike related)

    got this idea from a BMW forum that im on, its just where you can post what ever. if you went on a ride and took some pics, post your pics, if you did a new upgrade, post your upgrade, if something awesome happen, tell us about it. But remember. it didnt happen without Pics

    i went out for a ride. did 2 miles before i was drenched in sweat. 96 degree heat is just to freaking hot. a pic looking down the trail that takes you up to top, and a rocky tech section.

    Oh and since you mentioned bmw's, my e36 m3 has 242,000 miles on it.

    This after riding 10mi with my wife and son yesterday. 6 personal records, on a loop that was everything from flowing single track to black diamonds... Up and down.

    I'm not truly a beginner, more a tweener.

    I bike in Texas, usually takes me a good 2-3 weeks of riding in 90 -100 degree weather to get remotely adjusted to the heat.

    It was 98 when I pushed off from my apartment today. Just a short ride while Im awaiting a new rear cassette and cant ride the trails with it. 5.5 miles was pretty harsh in the hot stuff though.

    Yesterday, I got absolutely drenched. We were cycling along and as we came to the top of the hill, you could see a rainstorm approaching rather rapidly. Needless to say, we didn't make it home in time! Screengrab from the video from my GoPro.

    Got a friend to pick up a decent Diamondback, now I have a riding buddy! Hit the local trails for a couple hours. Drenched in sweat by the time we got back to the car. Lovin' it though.

    ^ riding in mud is my favorite to do. after fresh rain if sun starts to show i go out and ride. sliding around and having to work twice as hard to do the trails in my area will kill you in the first 2 miles. it is a lot of up then down then up then down then up then up again and then up some more.

    Just got back from my 1st ride on the scooter..
    Wasn't long as the RD was having a little trouble still finding the right gears.. So I loaded up to head to LBS forgetting they were closed for the holiday..
    Normally I would do all work myself, but the owner insisted that I bring back to him if any trouble as such.. At least until I am satisfied with the way it's riding..
    But still got about 90 minute trail ride in (got there right at sun-up)

    Rode about 10 miles today. I crashed doing something stupid and broke off one of my shift levers, then I got a flat. Still had fun though

    Road the trails in Ft. Pierce this morning. I quickly realized two things.
    1. I totally stink at this.
    2. The importance of being on the right gear.

    I was gased after fifteen minutes in. Changed gears a few times and plowed through it.
    Of course after wipping it a few times, and getting attacked by fire ants.

    Can't wait to do it again!!!

    I got up early and rode 8 miles of varied terrain singletrack with a friend who is twice as fast as me. I was pretty wore out after that ride as i pushed myself harder than I normally would by myself.

    The parking lot was packed as well to my surprise since it was the fourth and the temps have been triple digit for a while.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    I made an attempt to learn how to bunny hop. I can get 2'' if I'm lucky and damn was it a workout. 100* and 1000% humidity will do that.

    thats the best way to learn and get better in my opinion. i have a buddy thats been doing down hill for 6 years now that i met at our local dirt track, and now when we do the downhill course, we let him lead and try to follow. i've gotten so much faster now, he still beats me by like 10 seconds though. Haha

    Huge storm today in East Tennessee area, part of my roof blown off, tree's snapped all around the city, winds were up to 70mph.

    Cant way to see what the trails look like tomorrow night. haha. Im hoping that a well placed tree will allow me to build a ladder bridge or wooden berm or something cool. riding the same trails 3-5 times a week can sometimes get boring.

    took it nice and easy given the heat and still drained about 2 liters of water in an hour. finished up at the local reservoir.

    can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow.

    nope thats the thing about this thread, just a place to share thoughts, stories, trips, pics, or anything else related to,

    for example, it think of how i can make some extra money to get the pedals and 5 ten shoes that i want badly but at the moment cant afford

    Ive been trying to ride Wheelie's since I was in 2nd grade in 1988 or so, to this day 10-20ft is about as far as I can make it, maybe 2 pedal strokes LOL

    Today I did 14 miles, 5.2 miles of road to the trail, a few miles of trails and 5.2 miles home. It was at or near 100 degrees today, felt pretty darn good when I was done.

    Fort Pierce is fun! It can be a challenge though. I'm used to riding halpatiokee park in Stuart which isn't as technical, but when I get going in Ft Pierce, I feel like I'm a complete noob. After the first underpass, it gets easier.

    Anyway, I gave mine a bath today. Hopefully I can get out and ride Sunday.
    Cheers

    I went out to Sweetwater Reservoir for the first time and fell off my bike. Got pretty banged up too. Much more to see there, so I'll be back.

    i would say. i've been to texas once, it was 101 when i was there 3 years ago, but felt okay because the air there was dry.

    Come to TN after that rain we just had and see how 96 Feels, humiity is high all the time here.

    I sent back my uvex helmet to JensonUSA today because they charged my account twice, and now they lost a customer. they overdrawed my account to neg -70 bucks, and i just got paid today and im down to 40 bucks to last for two weeks now
    and i just didnt like the helmet either. universal fits are just to big for my head and look like a turtle shell sitting there.
