    I don't post for every ride, but I'm marking the day I switched my 29+ back out for 26x4.0 JJ/FastTrak F/R. Plus new brake pads. A little night time shakedown to get my brake levers positioned exactly, and dial down my tire pressure. A little pavement, a little grass, a little sand, a little water, a little roots, and a F-load of bugs. P-tooey!!

    Quick mtb ride before my bike commute. I ran into hikers/dog walkers 3 times on the neighborhood singletrack, and kept it friendly/dismounted/tried to yield. They seemed to really appreciate it, and I take it for granted now that at least one hiker usually thanks me for using a (passive) Timber bell so they can hear me coming. Playing Multi Use Trail Ambassador for MTBRs is less of a chore now that I am focusing on technique and structured heart rate training instead of pinning it for strava.

    I've been out sick with the flu last week and so it's nice to ride vicariously through your pictures. I can't wait to head up there to ride the shore one of these days.

    Almost everyday, still warm & humid here in SE PA. Lots of wet, so we're riding hard surfaces instead of the wet puddled trails. Waiting for some cool refreshing weather.

    ^^ speedy recovery curveball. Excellent daily ride stories!
    Our trails were too wet to ride following Monday's rain so we kept it urban and rode along the river

    Real trail test today with the new tires and brake pads. Got into a good groove this morning, and the new tires were growling around each corner. Saw quite a few mice dashing across the trail in my headlight, along with several raccoons that seemed not so much alarmed, but just politely making room on the trail. One climbed a small tree to avoid me then stopped at about head height - I had to duck to avoid it. Goofball.

    Technically, there's already a trail, but I see what they mean by "The bike trail will 'eventually' go all the way around the lake"(North Lakes, Oak Mtn SP in AL). It *could* use a little work...

    25+ miles, I meet one other mountain biker, and of course it's while I'm standing in the middle of the trail screwing with the rebound on my shock. Luckily I heard him coming and got out of the way, so he didn't have to stop. Would hate to be guilty of one of my own biggest pet peeves!

    Lucked out and didn't get more than sprinkles until the drive home.

    After three days without a ride, made it up to Fromme today with a buddy! Had a nice three hour ride! Rode Expresso, Baden Powell, then back up for Leppard, Crinkum Crankum, Kirkford, and then Roadside Attraction back the parking lot. The trails were in great shape, it was an amazing fall day, and the new shock on the bike performed well!

    It felt like 25c with humidity this morning so I went out and did 19.7 kms of trail. I would have kept going but my crank and bb started making some loud noise. So I quit just in case. Beautiful trails, it had just rained and the colors were amazing.

    Mixed terrain ride today, rode to my local trail, then home for a good 17mile ride.

    Only 1 bike and 2 trail runners, on the trail.

    Got to see some Deer, they were on both sides of the trail, so I rerouted myself to not disturb them. They are a bit far, but visible. 2nd pic.

    Explored some trails we’d never ridden in the Mendocino Woodlands and had a great ride again today. Found some really steep, but fun stuff out there. We’re always blown away by the mind boggling number of trails out here built by only a handful of riders.

    Big temperature drop and beautiful weather, but I became obsessed with something not being right lately, and spent almost as much time messing around with my fork as on the bike. Guess that's the danger of keeping a box of tools in the car.
    And of working night shift. Starting to think I work on the bike in my sleep, unless someone broke into my house while I was on vacation and put an extra token in my fork

    When you roll right through a spot you've gotten jammed up a couple dozen times without ever making it...well, it's just some rocks with a stupid tree blocking the line, but I gladly take any little personal victories that come my way!

    I did it twice! Tried a third time, but hit the brake and didn't make it, so quit while I was ahead

    Beautiful day before the big storm tomorrow. (NOAA says up to 16" could fall in the mountains--woohoo!!)
    19.5 miles and 3600 vertical on the single speed.

    did you ride today?-img_4209.jpg
    One gear, always the wrong one! Haha! If it doesn't kill me, its going to make me stronger. I built this bike at the beginning of 2018 and have ridden it 80% of the time this year. I am able to climb almost everything I could with gears now. And I am generally much faster on it than a geared bike now. Interesting.

    did you ride today?-img_4206.jpg
    Stopping to grab a bite to eat and a quick drink while enjoying the final days of the aspens. This is one my main places to ride. Climbing from downtown Santa Fe up into the high mountains one last time (if it snows tomorrow).

    Going off drops like this on a rigid bike is sort of like hitting a fast baseball with an aluminum bat. Boy oh boy does it hurt the hands! Haha! It also makes me so much smoother having to absorb all the terrain with my body instead of suspension. I sort of like it (a lot!).

    Went out for a solo ride (as most are at this point) putting on 13.5 miles at Annadel state park. Longest ride for me so far. Got first good crash out of the way as well.

    Well, I got a cold somehow, but still wanted to get a ride. I dropped off my daughter downtown and headed up to the North Shore. Man, was Fromme busy today. Did easier trails (Leppard, Crinkum Crankum, Kirkford, and Floppy Bunny. Despite how I was feeling, I rode some sections the fastest I've ever ridden them. Of course, my "fastest" will likely be quite a bit slower than other people's "medium." :-)

    I convinced a friend to stop riding at our local bike park every weekend and actually ride some trails. We had some fun at the Black Diamond Open Space! There are too many trails and we were only able to ride around half of them in about 3 hrs. I think I wore him out because I was ready to ride a diamond trail toward the end.

    Finally got back down to Mohican SP. Despite some rain over night, and temps <45F the trail was really good with just a few mud puddles. The Mohican-Malabar Bike Club crew does impeccable trailwork! Not one tree down in 24 miles!

    We kept a pretty chill pace until the group fragmented at mile 12 and just me and the ride leader headed off to finish the last half. Having never met before, we turned out to be pretty well-matched riders and had a great time. I had been able to mash the 4th cog of my 11-36 up to that point, but the climb up from the covered bridge required either bigger legs or lower gears. ow. I made a few mistakes, as certain trail features have "evolved" and one big root cluster almost separated me from my bike, but I followed them with great recoveries and kept the rubber side down, so I got my moneysworth for sure. The last 5 miles is def. my favorite, and I hit it pretty hard - amazed that I had enough left in the tank to hit anything.

    Here we are about 5mi. in and loving life.

    That's not the trail, per se. The trail cuts through a walk-in camping area, which is a good regroup spot.

    I rode yesterday, first proper ride back out since I lost my 4 legged best friend, it was much needed and appreciated. Weather turned out to be awesome, despite seeming like we might encounter some muddy trails on the ride out in the dark, but nothing of the sort, just tacky trails and bright blue skies.

    I was almost done, but the clouds were setting up for an awesome sunset, so I took another lap so I could get some pics.

    I could hear the hikers about 100 yards away gasp when they came around the corner and saw the view.

    Explored trails we hadn’t ridden here yet. We were happy to find some signs to help us along the way today.

    Not much of a ride today. Just another Pacific Spirit Park ride, but it was still nice to get out. Stopped for a pic of the bike by the base of this massive tree that had fallen many years ago. Would have been something to see that tree go down!

    Not today, but I did get out on Sunday and Monday since I worked on Saturday. Sunday was a local flow trail and I had a heap of fun.

    did you ride today?-img_0906.jpg


    Monday, I headed over the mountains into sunny skies for some fall colors on a dirt bike trail along the North Fork Taneum Creek. The ride was fun, but my dropper post failed and I was getting sick which made the climbs tough. Fortunately the trail wasn't very steep and riding with the dropper up wasn't a big problem.

    We were planning a different route to one of our new favorite trails, “Big Tree”, which is a really awesome singletrack descent. It’s named after a 190’ tall, 1300 year old, old growth coastal redwood right at the entrance to the trail. It’s one of the last on the coastal range and really a beautiful sight!

    We’d just ducked into another really fun trail on our way to visit the giant redwood, when I saw 2 large bear cubs running at top speed following their rather large mom down the trail in front of me. Once it registered what I was looking at, they bolted off of the trail and into the woods. We turned around and climbed back up and took the fire road around.

    Thanks, Bjeast. I’ve encountered all kinds of other wild critters on rides. Plenty of bobcats, coyotes, deer, rattlesnakes...but this was a new one. Took a second for my brain to figure out I wasn’t seeing another rider’s big black trail dogs in front of me.

    Great shots and looks like a super place to ride. You sure have a few critters there that would love to ruin your day.

    I think if I ever saw a bear then I'd break a bunch of Strave KOM's and I don't even use Strava.

    I know what you mean. My wife scooted up the trail to the road faster than I’ve seen before. I decided to walk my bike and be loud.

    Yep, got in 14 miles in the cold drizzle. All the trails are nothing but mud pits so I hit the concrete riverwalk. Even some of that was closed for all the flooding we've had.

    I didn’t think Yetis were allowed outside of Colorado.

    Great shots.

    Yes indeed! Once again I was back at Mt. Fromme and it was an amazing day. The weather was phenomenal, the trails were great and the bike felt great! :-)
