    Out for a ride with the dog Saturday. Went back Sunday to do some trailwork on my adopted trail, and my adopted dog was not as good. I had to use his GPS collar (you can see the antenna) to find him almost a mile away.

    Oh, dear! Glad you were able to find him eventually.

    Here are the rest of the pics.

    Keystone has been on my radar for years and we hit it at prime wildflower season.
    We went with another couple and had a blast. After four days of riding hubby and I were toast but the young'uns went down to Rossland for 7 Summits. That ride is pretty close to home so we are saving it for a different trip.

    OMG it's a great bike. It's my first DH bike I've actually ridden (I had a Ventana Cuervo built up, twice, but never rode it), and it's amazingly fun. It'll be better when I get a proper rear tire on it (DHR2) and brakes that don't kill my tiny paws (Saints with SLX levers instead of the Avid Code Rs).

    Oh that must be nice now they're in carbon. Shiny I changed out the pedals, handlebar, stem, saddle, and shifter/derailleur and I'm really happy with it.

    Yeeha! Looks like a fun bike, and a fun park trip!

    Some more Kona stoke.. you can really rail the bike on corners too, which is something I haven't been through with the other DH bikes I've ridden.

    those are awesome pix formica! You look great in a FF. Revelstoke is on my bucketlist for sure now. I also got a new bike, 650b. Got me a devinci troy trailbike. From my first couple rides, it's a real DH ripper but climbs fairly good too. Got a reverb stealth and it's my best upgrade ever. happy happy new toys.

    No real story behind this. We went out riding a little before work yesterday. Had to hustle back to beat out the storm.

    Spending this weekend building up the new enduro bike! Should be interesting, lots of firsts, first full squish, first internal cable routing, first dropper (and install), first hydraulic brakes (with bleed/shortening)...

    Either way, I'm super psyched. I got the frame over a month ago, and it's just been sitting there as I've been traveling for the past few weeks for work and waiting on the wheels. But I picked them up yesterday!!!! Sneak peek...

    A lot of hike a bike crossings on a wilderness ride. Last blast for Long Canyon... turns into "managed as wilderness" next year.Today's Pic or Story-10704223_10100206105529943_1372940783651527125_o.jpg I am using the bike to hold myself up so I don't slide into the creek off the rock.


    Anyone think this thread should be sticky?

    The order hasn't been signed yet. A lot of us are holding our breath on a lawsuit that may or may not happen. ~LC got written up?

    Wow, that's rough to lose bike access to wilderness designation. I imagine they got a lot of public comment against it.

    I mostly ride the fatbike on snow, but I try to get to the beach a couple times in the off-season. This was a foggy day in September on Cape Cod MA with my buddy Keeper.

    N Idaho isn't a hotspot of activism... whether they were even listening to the public is up for discussion. There may be a lawsuit that will throw the whole ruling out. More on Long Canyon and the USFS here

    Today's story:
    I will be 54 tomorrow. I'm convinced mountain biking keeps me young. I have a tradition of doing a birthday ride - just put it out there to the universe and see who shows up.

    Today is an amazing fall day. We met at the trailhead hubby and I + four other folks I know, one of whom brought some acquaintances. What can I say other than we had a super fun ride up to the towers, hitting all the fun little ridable rocks (some of the guys jump but not me), basking in the sun for a bit. Then back down all the bermed flow trails where I had cupcakes waiting for everyone.

    I'm sure my hubby thinks I am ridiculous in my Wonder Woman socks ( at least I tucked the capes in) with a tiara zip tied to the helmet. Methinks I missed a photo op with a dozen cupcakes, a tiara'd helmet and my socks.

    So much fun!! Maybe it's the sugar from that second chocolate chip cupcake.

    ^ +1 Happy Birthday! I would have rep'd you but it says I need to spread it around some more. Would have loved to have seen a picture of that. I agree, mountain biking definitely keeps us young !
