    Riding pics for those who feel the boreds (sic) are a bit too inane at the moment.

    I rode my bike five days in a row this week. On trails. And commuted to work on a bike work days. Sweet.

    Nice shots! What happened with the crank set?

    Thanks for the PASSION hit!

    Obviously you all are missing his hate. He hates us all so he is trying to make you jealous that he actually rode.

    Thanks for the pics.

    Blue Mtn. over in Peekskill, NY today.


    Fire road up to Yin-->Bailey's-->Yang-->2 Live Crew-->Chewbacca-->Upper SIS-->Lower SIS-->upper Stinger-->My Favorite Trail-->lower Stinger-->Debacle-->Blue Mtn. summit-->Myx Monster--> (then over into Depew Park) El Capitan-->Dr. Jeckyl-->entirely beat, back to the car via the access road. That leaves out a bunch of fire road and two track connections between some of the trails.

    This ride fueled by leftover blueberry and raspberry pancakes from this morning. And two chili-cheese-onion-sauerkraut laden hot dogs on the way home.



    near five hours on the bike. Nice and tired before going to work tonight. Excellent! Best of all: on call - if not called in, I'll be free to ride all day tomorrow. Excellenter!

    Every time I see his pics I think the same thing.

    US Western US folks spend lots of time trying to find tech trails (we really do have them) but it seems that everywhere you turn back East, there is the tech.

    Yep. Plenty of good tech out west as you know. The trails out here just have a slightly higher average technical ability. Lost of slow speed, trialsy stuff too, if that's someones particular bag.

    The tradeoff is far less of the long descending thing. You can get that, but it takes a bit more work to get to that stuff, at least from the part of CT I'm in.

    Both good. Either way, I'm just extremely happy about being outside, riding my bike.

    Nice pics! They inspire me to do more exploring in my own neck of the woods. I've lived here my whole life and haven't ridden half the stuff you have in the short time you've been here.

    What happened to that crank in the first set of pics?

    snapped bolt. ride ender. easy fix, if you happen to have the bolt handy. got the same cranks on two bikes, and had a spare at home. fixed in under two minutes once home.
