    Got out and introduced my son to one of my favorite trails today. 10.5 miles and 1200 ft of climbing. Hadn't really been out in almost 2 weeks and I felt it. None the less, fun was had by all.

    Spring has sprung, it's starting to green up little by little.

    The Midwest is having another blast of freezing rain/ice. Can't get on the trails in this crap.

    Yup ^^

    Headed out of town, b/c it was (& still is...) blowing it's tits off today...

    Took my Scout 290 & 3 out of the 7, were surprised I was riding a hardtail at the end of the ride.

    Trails were moderately 'Janky'.

    First ride on the new Breezer. Sunny, temps. in the mid 80's and 35mi. Bike felt/fit good with the exception of the bars. Shape and very long reach measurement pushed the hoods out and additional 2" over the Salsa bars I have on my old road bike. Easy fix.

    I did it again! I was bored, grabbed my heahphones, threw on some Floyd, and took the SS for an urban assault.

    Perfect night, also tested my new light.

    First one is upper Timber and second is Howard. Both in Lory. I climbed Sawmill earlier to Loggers and Mill Creek, but was working too hard chasing a friend to get a photo.

    Maybe the last snow-riding of the season?

    This is my first post I think. I’ve been lurking a long time. Enjoy all the great pics and they’ve motivated me to make dedicated mb trips to Brevard and Sedona in the last 6 months. My home is in central Alabama and we have some nice trails.
    I put in 15 miles yesterday with 1300’ climbing. Here’s to riding more and posting more too. Hope the pic works.

    hmmm. Not working. Ahh. I see there are other instructions....

    i had a rough morning, i'm still dealing with bronchitis, the weather is supposed to be cold and gusting to 30mph, so i went out at about 8 am, hopefully get most of a ride in before i have to fight the wind, nature's bully, back to the start/finish point. i just wanted to ride before it all went to hell. climbed up the rocky bit to an overlook, took off my helmet and pack and sat down. i know the word Zen is overused, misused, and abused, but sitting there, overlooking the river, the mountains in the distance, watching birds fly below me, listening to the birds as the only sound in the void, it was complete Zen. the air was still, it was neither hot nor cold, the anger and frustration i carried with me earlier in the morning melted away. back on the bike, thinking i might turn back and cut the ride short, i kept on going forward. i was all alone, i walked and pushed my bike up the rocky techy gnarly "down" section, knowing i was the only one out there, took my time, i didn't have to worry about slowing anyone down, making anyone wait for me, no strava or imaginary race, no heart rate or tempo, i stopped and took breaths, i looked at the trail and the rocks and the trees and the small drops of purple and yellow flowers in the brown desert dirt. i pedaled slowly, turning a 1 1/2 hour ride into a 3 hour ride. still no wind, still air, not hot, not cold, "room temperature," perfect. quiet. the downhill to the car was rocky and rowdy. i chose the hardtail for this ride, and i realized how lazy i had become. coming down the techy descent i had to actually ride my bike, choose my lines, at one point i was holding on and pointing and putting full trust in the bike to roll over whatever was in my way, a bit scary, a bit giddy from getting away with it all, one quick save where i almost had a catastrophe which turned into redemption, tires popping and snapping loudly as they glanced off rocks, not flatting thank the gods, just doing their job and keeping me moving, momentum and body english and shucking and jiving, i made it back to the car. still the only car in the parking lot.

    it was perhaps the best ride ever.

    Another day, another ride on Fromme (North Shore, BC), riding the trails I usually ride! This time I had a couple of buddies with me, which was nice for a change! Pics are from the usual drops on Floppy Bunny. You can see I'm not going to set any distance records! Rode the Slash, a bike which I'm enjoying more and more... I'm getting more and more comfortable with these kinds of drops, which probably means I'll relax too much, think I've got them nailed, and crash!

    Yep, my new Thursday night rides, and really loving it. 8.5 miles 1400' of elevation.

    I love my helmet set up! Big thanks to RAKC. I'm still messing with my handlebar lights. The Kali Lunati has a light/gopro attachment and its super light, as is the light.

    Wyatt, your issue is you are using imgur. It doesn’t work on this site anymore. As askibum suggested, use this site to attach it.

    As simple as 1-6.

    Yep, 13miles, 2100' of elev on a loop around Walnut's horse trails. I didn't realize how much more there is, and we even have a twisty ST.

    If it wasn't for the branch I ate at the end, it would have been perfect...ok still was a lot of fun!

    19.3 miles with 1364 feet of climbing. Cool, spring morning, but good to be outside.

    Very nice ride and fatigued now. Going out tomorrow, too!

    Yes I did, beautiful day to ride.

    As usual, a day late and dollar short.

    did you ride today?-420_climb.jpg

    Chased a lot of deer through the woods. Saw the biggest whitetail I've ever seen. The deer itself wasn't very big, but it had a HUGE tail. I wonder if the other deer find that attractive.

    It was probably packed yesterday, anyways.

    Oh dear, did he just say that?

    As far as a large tail on a whitetail deer. That tail is only a flag to warn the other deer to run, there’s danger in the area. Contrary to popular belief, side doesn’t matter in this case.

    And the "trick" of the white tail is that it stands out whereas the rest of the deer blends into the surroundings very well. They run a ways with the white visible and then drop their tail, making themselves disappear. They blend in so well it's hard to get a good photo of them around here.

    17.8 miles today, but forgot to check my climbing number. Oops.

    Trails are tacky with still quite a few blown down trees from last month’s Nor’easters.

    The Charles river has flooded over the trails in a few spots. I had to trudge through very cold water up to my knees in one section and turn around in another spot as the water was was waist high.

    Still a fun ride.

    Went for my first ride with the North Shore Mountain Biking Club yesterday. Had a great time ven though my climbing stamina was poorer than I thought it would be - and I didn’t think it would be great! That’s a bit disappointing given how I’ve been riding regularly. Also, my knee was quite sore on the climbs! Eventually had take a “Vitamin I” as my buddy calls Ibuprofen. That said, the descents were fun, and overall I had a great time. I’ll definitely ride with the group again!

    The pic below is not me!

    My wife and I rode at Sea Otter yesterday. Had a great time as always and looking forward to next year! It’s so fun hanging with other bike nerds and talking bikes all day.

    Certainly didn’t make fun of me while a was pedaling through as they were walking up the steep loose stuff and passing some like a runaway train on the descents. Gotta love these beasts, right? Also had a great time chatting it up with the dudes in the Surly tent...great fun

    You should definitely try to make it once...you’d love Sea Otter. I’m always jealous of the people in RVs camping and hanging for the weekend. It might take all weekend to soak everything in.

    22 miles with 2350' of climbing over the weekend on various trails around my house. What is everyone's thoughts on the Strava totals on climbing? Always seems elevated on trails around my house.

    Tough ride yesterday. 13 miles and 3000 feet of vertical through one of the most devastated tree blow-downs I have ever seen. I can't even tell you how many times I was off the bike to climb over trees. We removed at least 25 full grown trees or parts of tree trunks off the trail to get to the halfway point. Time constraints forced the group to split and two of us rode out through another totally wrecked stretch with so many downed tree hurtles I lost count (over 50). The two of us closed the loop allowing us to ride out the exact same way we came in (through all of our previous clearings). In the end, my legs look like I got into a major fight with multiple cats. Epic day.

    Beautiful pic!

    I rode in Delta BC again. It was a gorgeous day! No pics, but my buddy did help me dial in the rear shock on my Fuel EX 9.8. I've always been a it of a set it and forget it guy, but it was helpful to be able ask some questions about how the shock was feeling....

    He'd have a field day at this place, then. There's a gazillion trees in the way-trail jukes around them constantly.
    Even when the trail occasionally smooths out, trees.
    This ones blocking the view of the next one. Really snaky trail.

    Spring is here in Vermont, and the warm weather the past few days has made me urge to ride. I took my bike out for a short ride around my yard and up and down my driveway a few times after I put new brakes on it. I really want to ride some singletrack again!

    Morning ride in Fruita...

    did you ride today?-0425180957a.jpg

    ... and afternoon ride at home, where they are demolishing the old Colorado State University football stadium. It looks like a carcass that is being picked clean by vultures.

    I wish Maxwell was 3x longer, and connected to more.

    My favorite trail in FC.

    Got out last night for my last tune up with Endless Biking on the North Shore here in Vancouver . Learned a lot of tips over the four weeks. It was well worth it!

    How long does a ride like that take you? If you don't mind me asking.

    It was about two and a half hours, I think. Stopped a bunch of times to climb on rocks and take pictures. Poked around an old cabin. It’s snowing again here (those pictures are at 8,500ft) so I wanted to enjoy it while I could. Did some hike-a-bike on some social hiking trails, too.

    Sounds like a fun ride. I'm doing my first 25miles on Saturday, I'm hoping to do it in about 3.5hrs.. I hope! Not as much climbing from what I read, I think 2500'.

    Did you catch where the ride took place at 8,500 ft.? Not much oxygen up that high to keep you energized. Nice ride Duke.

    Such a sad thing watching them destroy that famous local landmark. Maxwell is a fun trail. Twisty turns with tech mixed in. A blast coming down, as Le Duke said too bad it’s so short. Good times in Fruita I’m sure.

    Rode out to Rage (45mi. round trip) to pick up a new set of bars for my new gravel/road bike. Interesting mural on the side of the shops building.

    Was suppose to be an "easy" ride around the golf course. Ya, not quite! Tight, twisty constant roots, logs and little bridges. Very loamy and rain forest. Was fun though
    Ended up beside the driving range, lots of balls over the net on to the trail!
