    That's the largest mushroom I have ever seen!

    As for riding every day, I try to although I only get to ride trails once a week. I exercise my dog almost every day with the bike, with the only exceptions being if we are going trail riding the next day as it is usually a longer ride and I don't want to over do him, or because of weather.

    17km today. Getting back into shape again in a new locale, with new trails for me to explore! Apparently barely riding for a month has had a negative effect on my fitness levels...shocker!

    Got out for about 15mi today at a local park. I had wanted to head a bit farther afield and do some backcountry riding today, but the wife got sick and I needed to combine my ride with some errands (picking up some prescriptions, cat food, etc), as well as be relatively nearby in case she needed something else. Trying to help her mend up quickly because we're headed to Pisgah next weekend. I'm trying to fight off some kind of nasty bug, myself. I mostly feel good (especially after my doc hooked me up with some antibiotics a few days ago), but will probably have that lingering dry cough that tends to last for a couple of months.

    Weather was absolutely perfect. Partly sunny. Light breeze. Temps in the 60's. Actually starting to feel like maybe autumn is thinking about paying a visit. That's mucho welcome because it was in the 90's less than a week ago.

    We had a family ride today. Took the girls, 8 and 6 years old thru the woods so it was slow going but that's ok. I can go my pace any other time. It's great to see the progress they have made riding and how much they like riding with their mom and I. 6.2 miles in 1 hour 45 minutes but was worth every minute.

    Today no, but yesterday yes. This summer has been a tough go to get motivated with the high temps. But now that it's starting to cool down I see more action in the next couple of months. Here's yesterday's ride at 78 degrees which is quite the relief from the mid nineties.

    That's funny because I'm trying flats out now too. After over thirty years of toe clips and straps the clip less since the first came out. Interesting. Seems to be easier on my back which has been bothering me for a while. I think I've ridden every day for two weeks now. I ridden a lot this season because the snow left the valley early so I've been riding four to six days a week since then. Sometimes twice a day. And never in the bike park.

    I've maybe missed only 4 or 5 days this season so I took this rainy weekend off.
    I'll be on the trail first thing in the AM.
    Can't wait, I'm getting antsy.

    I don't ride on the weekends. There's just too much traffic, and I usually bring the dog. I'll ride tomorrow and not see anyone.

    The weather was absolutely perfect today, so we took the Jeep out and had a picnic off 3N16 in north Big Bear.

    Yep, only a short road ride with an old riding buddie (for the first time ever I'm fitter than him)...
    Not working att he moment and trying to regain some fitness (progressing, but a long way to go) and I'd ike to get out every day, but if I smash myself on a 3 hour road ride, or liek the other day 2 hard hours of mtb (hard for me, not anyone else), not doing much of anything the next day.
    But spring has well and truly hit my neck of the woods, I may have to get out for a quick mtb ride this afternoon.
    All the gear and no idea.

    Had the best worst ride today. Recently got our middle kid a nice bike that he loves, scored a Mongoose Etero Elite for cheap with several upgrades. We rode a few more advanced trails, and he had a blast. I ended up dropping my chain in to my cassette and it got caught in between two rings. It's an old cassette and needs to be replaced anyway, but ended up riding about 10 more miles after that with a 2x6 geared bike. Also got a sidewall tear going through a rock garden, which was a blast too. Got to show the boys how to do some trail side repair which was good too. Today I get to go shopping for a new cassette and replace my tires for the season a bit early. Think about going with a less aggressive tread style.

    If you mean Sunday, yes I rode. With my wife. She crashed and had a flap of skin hanging off her knee. Being near a road I cycled back to the parking lot, got the car, and picked her up. She rewarded me later for being gallant. The reward was better than the ride.

    No riding today. Job interview.
    Try to ride every day, to work and back, come rain, shine or snow.

    Too much rain over the weekend (if 'today' referred to Sunday as of this writing), so not for me. However, today has cleared and is sunny, so I'm hoping to get out after work.

    I had that reaction the first time I tried flats after old school clips/straps (weird theme going on). Tried them again with Five Ten shoes and been riding flats ever since.

    To keep with the thread...Saturday & Sunday, about 18-ish miles. Today, leaving soon.

    I rode to work, so yes. Nothing special, about 13k round trip. Well I was lucky that I missed the rain.

    Yes today, finally 7miles - Amazing how much you lose when you don't ride for a while, but I did clear a section which I've already cleared twice but today it was smoother, faster and more enjoyable.

    Rode to work for the first time ever (10 mi round trip), then went to the bike shop. Picked up a co2 tire "pump" and a tube, along with tire spoons and a water bottle. Then later in the day i rode a couple blocks to the store. I am absolutely loving my new to me bike.

    i didnt.

    rode yesterday with a pain in my abdomen..down low. took it easy, paying attention on not crashing. today, was about to ride when my neighbor saw me walking slow holding my abdomen..right above my pecker..she said.."hey, do you have a hernia?"

    wtf? i dunno. put the bike back, and sat on couch. i'll see if it still hurts tomorrow

    okay..not a hernia. i googled it. still gonna take it easy. probably a muscle strain from a goofy mtb "crash"..i just topple over.

    Had a color run on our trail last weekend, left some colorful areas on the trail, pretty cool, especially when riding at night.




    Snakes were out and about today too. I believe this was just a Texas Water Snake, not a water moccasin, but I didn't stick around long enough after he moved off the trail to find out.


    Also got in an evening ride with the kids during on weekly wednesday night rides. About 20 miles total for the day, planning on doing it again today.

    I had chicken pox as an adult. I was 35... terrible experience; covered from head to toe. Never again, please and thank you.

    Speedy recovery for your daughter and especially a return to biking for you

    I haven't ridden in 3 days now! I don't get out near as often as I'd like, but try to get at least a short (3-5 miles) ride 4-5 times a week. This week has been a scheduling nightmare. I do commute to work when I can, but cannot do so when I have to pick up the kids from school/daycare, which has been the trend this week.

    +1 on the chickpox are awful as well. Speedy recovery to your little one, Ghost!

    ... so... my mother in law is looking after the little one today... I'm gonna finally get on my bike, I thinks...

    NAH!

    Today it was pi**ing down so my wife asked me nicely, in that way she does, to give her a lift to work... So I drove instead...

    We're moving house next week so I can't see more riding on the horizon either...
    Ah well, there's always next season... (or winter riding on studded tires... )

    Happy trails, guys (and gals)

    Sweet rig. Love my SC. Probably won't go to another brand as long as they keep pumping out these quality set ups and keep up their customer service.

    Rode a local run today called 'Oh Shit Ridge', which is definitely the most hairy in our network. It's the first time i've ridden it on my new fs, and I almost cleared it, but had to step off about 100ft from the end of the trail. It's the steepest trail i've ridden, filled with loose rocks, dirt and a drop off to either side at times. Definitely an adrenaline rush and a brake tester. My new Guides were awesome. I haven't even come close to clearing it on my hardtail, so I was stoked to get so far, even though I didn't clean it. At the bottom there is a very nice rock jump to reward you for hanging on the whole way down.... =)

    Hell yeah I rode today! I even brought my youngest out with me to start introducing her to the sport. We had a great time, even though the pace was slow and we took several breaks after the climbs. The great news is she wants to ride with me next weekend again.

    Yes. Yes I did. A commute to the office, but ass on saddle time none the less.

    I even had the little one (she is over the chicken pox!) out on her balance bike on Sunday. She lifted her feet on a downward slope for the first time and balanced! Daddy was do proud

    Happy Days!

    Does my ignorant mind understand that right; whille having fun with the stuff we like so much (MTB), you cut down someone else's fun? Please write down it is not the case...
    And yes, I had one of the best rides ever today, the Slavnik mountain.. we just had to climb it twice and ride superb natural DH..twice☺

    Had the whole day off.

    Weather is perfect.

    Cut firewood.

    Did trail work.

    Rode bike.

    Cooked a steak for the wife and I, and burgers for the kids.

    Drank beer, then ate ice cream.

    Now surfing mtbr.

    Perfect!

    Just another couple of degrees warmer and I'll be out there.
    Might as well soak it up now, another month and warm rides won't be an option.

    that mushroom is tasty.
    How did you prepare the puff ball?
    We're having a bumper crop this year.

    Of course I rode this morning.

    I rode my new cross bike on some pea gravel highways. Except for a short section of single track where I goofed up getting on to a short bridge. Fell off and landed on my back in a deep puddle. Deep enough that water flowed over my head. Totally soaked but it was a nice clear fall day and not too cold so I continued. Shoes on the boot dryer.

    Did you ride today!

    Yes,
    Today's ride was nothing short of perfect. Perfect temperature of 53 degrees. Perfect weather / overcast and dead still. Perfect dirt due to small rain storm last night. And perfect non crowded condions. I had the place to myself on a Saturday, unheard of.

    Be sure to click on the fancy embedded videos.

    Didn't ride today. Too much rain in the past couple weeks, and I want to be a good Samaritan. Sun in the forecast the next couple days though, so I'll be hitting it at least 3 times this week.
    I've gone to find myself. Should I get back before I return, please tell me to wait.

    Did a shuttle journey on the Ragged Trail today. Beautiful scenery and weather, dropped in from around 10k feet down into elevations where the aspen still have their leaves. Lot's of pedaling, and one strenuous bit when we tried to take a shortcut to add more singletrack to the ride (we ended up hopping downed trees for miles), and then lots of fast doubletrack downhill. 28 miles, including 5 of road/dirt to get back to the truck. Great ride!

    This ride was from 2 days ago. The grandmother watched my daughter and it was unexpected so I got to ride longer than normal. My legs were toast from the short steep pitches on the SS. I wanted to go back up the hill for another round but the hamstrings were warning me that they may not cooperate.
