    Back in the saddle

    Back in the saddle-image.jpgBack in the saddle-image.jpgJust getting back into mountain biking, I rode heavily from about 94-2003 then fell out of it until recently. Found a good deal on a used Cannondale and hit the trails out here in Okinawa, Japan. I busted my butt a few times but it was great! The trail (spider loop) was awesome, but muddy as hell. Only a few issues with my rear derailer skipping a lot but I think that might have been from the mud.

    Glad your back in the saddle

    Yeah, mud has a way of taking away our smooth shifting.

    Keep riding

    Welcome back!
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    What is this Orion that you speak of? I don't think I've seen it at a BevMo...or maybe I'm looking in the wrong places?

    Okinawa based beer, not sure if you can even get it in the states. It's good, not a real heavy beer but not super light either.
