    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 !

    In retrospect, me setting up a photo shot with above mentioned accessories wouldn't have been any worse than the guys standing around comparing Strava data....

    Why of course there are Wonder Woman socks with little capes on them. How we ended up with these socks is a story...

    My friend gifted me. She is recovering from a very serious brain injury that occurred with a weird little MTB fall; nothing major. She was a Cat 2 racer for Terry, extremely active and this was kind of life changing for her. I have been helping her get back into MTB. I let her set the pace - this was the first time to the top in about 4 years.

    HB, and I have to see these socks!

    edit I should scroll down farther before replying. Socks look great & that's a great story to go with them. <3

    Aloha and Happy Birthday Formica. My friend says on a mountain bike you can be 9 years old forever. I agree. I just made my half-century last week Friday!! Still smiling and having fun on the bike. Another statement we use "Only monkeys have more fun (because they can throw poop at each other and get away with it)".

    Hope the celebrations continue..........

    We are having a run of abnormally lovely fall weather... mid 60s-70s. It's really hard to work when it's like this. (I work in my basement at home) Today seemed like a good day to sneak out for a 12 loop at the state park by the river, especially since the fall rains are supposed to start tonight.

    Two pics and stories today.
    1. I said goodbye to Stella today. I thought it would be difficult to sell this bike ( high end but "old"). I let a few people know I was selling it, and a friend of mine who used to borrow it every now and then bought it for her wife's mom. She (the bike) will have a new life down in Tahoe. I'm so happy I didn't sell to strangers.

    2. Fall riding has been AWESOME. We finally go enough rain to get rid of the moondust and sand. Add goretex socks and warm gloves and good to go. This ride is up behind my house. It's mostly old jeep roads, but it is out the back door.

    Luckily, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades..."Keeper" found this big porcupine today on our ride.

    ^ @mtbxplorer - good thing it wasn't "Finder's Keepers"! Great picture - you should post in "Wildlife Seen on the Trail" in the Passion forum.

    Beautiful day in Oneonta.

    Today was unseasonably warm and sunny for upstate New York. Visited my alma mater today with the bike in tow.

    Please excuse the instagram filters.

    I need to learn to put some style into jumps so I don't look like such a robot in the air.

    Wheelie'n!

    Nothing like finishing the ride by tearing up the stairs around campus!

    Great day overall, aside from almost losing my bike on the highway when one of the ratcheting mechanisms on my Thule rack came undone.
