    thanks ryetoast So far I'm liking the Balance.

    The local trails are still a bit spongy but drying out. Went for an evening lap

    Beautiful weekend to finally get some Spring trail riding in! After almost 3 feet of snow three weeks ago, followed by tons of rain, the trails were remarkably dry. One of the parks I frequent in upstate, NY was once a part of the Chenango Canal system. The River and Towpath trails hug the Chenango River. Adjacent to the trail are the remnants of the canal, which fill with water and teem with wildlife this time of year.

    A painted turtle basking in the sunlight.

    A mallard couple foraging along the bank of the canal.

    Here's a garter snake sunning himself in the shallow water.

    A closeup of one of his buddies who swam up onto the bank.

    Dusting some cobwebs off. I'm looking forward to getting my FS bike out soon.

    I love everyone's pictures! Thanks for sharing. I'm enjoying everyone's experiences I spend such little time in the forest right now, and I'm hoping that'll change during the summer.

    While I'm waiting for my new AM bike to be built, I'm spending time on my DJ.

    Today, I got to do my first wall ride Today's Pic or Story-001.jpg

    Beautiful day that finally felt, and looked, like Spring! I put away my Muk (for now) and broke out my Trance 29er. I thoroughly enjoyed the "skinny" tires and glorious full-suspension.

    I started with my usual climb and came across this on the trail. Luckily I always come prepared

    A few minutes later and I cleared the "fun" line over the whoops someone had made many, many years ago (long before I started riding here)

    Those are amazing pics. There's a bald eagle nesting ground not far from my house. Haven't been as lucky as you to see that!

    And I'll post my write up tomorrow. A bit beat and I have an early morning tomorrow.

    Got a new bike last week. Guerrilla Gravity Megatrail SS. I wanted a short travel bike for the parks and to take on the occasional trail ride. I've only ridden trails now 2-3 times in the past 6 months, so you see my priorities

    Testing out the new bike at Ruby Hill. Handles steeps, berms, and just about everything else you throw at it. Or are willing to.

    Great pics! Doesn't it feel great to be out on the trails again and see everything starting to come up and bloom? How are you enjoying your Balance?

    Laying a friend to rest today after a long battle with prostate cancer the sky gave us this. A rainbow around the sun. It was interesting.

    A weekend of downhilling with hubby and friends. Sore as anything but never quitting. Did two days of loooooong runs. Most of it on a long travel Megatrail and one run on a demo 8 not getting full travel on the fork.

    I'm freeee! I went into hibernation the last few months while I finished writing my dissertation. I missed all the stoke from the Women's Lounge during that time. I should hopefully have a bit more free time now.

    Stripes, that Megatrail SS looks awesome!

    I did manage to sneak in a couple of enduro races - one 2 days before my defense and the other last Saturday. I made the crash reel at the latter race! That's me at 1:30... I was completely spent by the time I reached that part of the stage (bottom of final stage, thankfully). Haha!

    Congrats on the dissertation. When do you defend?

    How was the enduro race? I would have to be able to climb to do one.

    I converted the megatrail to full strength. It's a really amazing bike. I'll post more later on it

    Thanks, stripes! I defended about a month ago. I am just wrapping up the final formatting and paperwork right now.

    Both enduros were challenging. I was not in shape for the first one (the dissertation also cut into my early season riding/training), but I managed to squeak out a third-place finish (it was at the Klondike Trails in Moab, which I've ridden before - for fun. They're rather frightening at race speed...). The BME race was brutal. I did that one last year (and it was a much longer day - 7500 feet of climbing and descending), but for some reason, this year felt harder (with only ~5100 feet of climbing & descending). I am not a strong climber, but they give you plenty of time for the transfers (the BME transfers are steep and one had a lot of hike-a-bike. Ugh). I think I pushed it too hard in the first two stages (and I crashed 3 times at the top of the first stage) and I wasn't able to eat well prior to the race (anxiety) - I think that is why I had a harder time this year.

    I have another race this weekend. This one is a two-day enduro - I have not ridden the trails/stages that we will be riding on the first day, but the second day is at Angel Fire bike park here in NM. I love those trails.

    I question my sanity every time I do one of these races...

    I really, really thought about a new bike. But, I love my Intrigue so I just did a suspension upgrade.

    Keep the pics coming. I'm getting my Megatrail sorted out for the summer, and I decided to name it: it's my unicorn because it takes me magical places

    I added some purple bits to the grips and a purple dropper lever and some custom fork stickers to pretty him up a bit:

    Got home from my morning ride and the x-fusion hilo was waiting for me.
