    Signs it's been too long since your last mtn. bike ride...

    Mountain bikers who don't road ride are usually slow.
    Roadies who don't mountain bike are usually d***s.

    I have been out on a sailing vacation for 2 weeks. The week before vacation was too busy to ride. The week after I have a nasty cold. So no riding for 4 weeks. I had to literally dust off my bike last weekend. No webs though!

    I need to do some riding before I head to KT in a couple of weeks.

    This year I've gone from not riding at all, to going out three or more times a week.

    I feel like I have missed out if it's a nice day and I have not been out for a ride. There's an eleven mile circuit starting from my house that takes in almost every type of terrain, and I have done it three times this week.

    It only takes an hour and a half or less, so I can usually sneak out after work without taking up the whole evening.

    You revisit old threads and posts to relive the life you once had.

    Work's been insane lately with only 4 real days off since the first week in August (my 5th today).

    Soon I will be able to saddle up once again.

    Today I revisited this clip of mine from a year ago. Freakin' sad indeed. SS (at the time) fat bike. SO much fun.

    Will be doing this again soon and I CAN'T wait.

    Until today it's been three weeks since I rode. On that Sat. I put the bike in the van and went to work with hopes of riding afterwards. An hour into my shift it starts raining and I also feel the start of my wife's cold she gave me. I'm still slightly sick but repeated the details of the second sentence above today. The weather was perfect when I finished my shift so I put in a nice hour ride. I cut it short only because I'm barely over being sick and I HAVE to ride tomorrow, don't I?

    If all your scabs have fallen off, it's time to make new ones.
