    I'll play! We had two days of gorgeous weather in the NE and I was lucky enough to have them off from work (I worked through the weekend). I took full advantage :thumbsup:

    It's still shorts weather here. I'm still a total noob so the pic isn't very exciting.

    Aloha, I keep trying to justify a fatbike. Still can't but if I lived somewhere like that, I'd definitely get one. I only get tons-o-rain with my daily commute.

    My big story is riding the last three weekends in a row. This is kind of a big deal for me: I got really, really, really burnt out and had a couple of situations that really fizzled my passion for a while. I hardly rode my mountain bike for almost a year. The fall riding has been fabulous with damp trails but sunshine. Only the "hardcore" riders are out as there is a chill in the air. I've gone back to the trail system I burned out on: I spent waaaay too much of myself on an advocacy project, and it's been lovely to see the new activity and things moving on.... without me. So I've been riding the new trails,and they are great. If we don't get snow soon (ski season) I'm going to keep on doing it.

    ^^Sounds like you're finding some "balance" :thumbsup:

    gmats, Aloha. Don't you have beaches there? Fatbikes are most awesome on sand!

    Yeah, we have beaches here and people even sell "sandbikes" here. Just seems like an expensive luxury (I haven't been able to justify it here yet) for a limited use bike. We will see.

    So old, but funny story about Hawaii's rain. About 2 years ago I was riding home from work- about a 13 mile ride one way and it starts pouring with about 4-5 miles home. So after about 5 minutes of getting drenched I'm getting pretty cold (I know- it's Hawaii) and then the thunder and lightening starts. This is actually a pretty rare event in Hawaii... So I pick up the pace only to discover my power is out. Unfortunately for me I used a key pad to get in through the garage. After about 30 minutes of avoiding sideways rain and sitting out the worst lightening storm in my 5 years on the island, I relent and call a locksmith. But the roads are flooded and he's stuck in rush hour traffic. Finally after 2 hours huddled on my porch the power comes back on beating the locksmith.... moral of the story- always carry a house key!

    Trail was still tacky so tires were grippy

    Logs were too slippery to ride so I walked

    4th or 5th weekend in a row! The climb to the top here is the perfect workout, and then way fun down on twisty fun single track. The temp at the house in the shade was 31 but the sun felt so good! I am so happy to be back on my mtb

    ^ Hey Nicole, yours too! :D I'm actually diggin' the orange on your bike; do you have plans to add any more? I got out for a spin as well. Who says the season needs to end?

    cant think of any more, other than crazy blinging out the wheels, but my current wheels are good, so that would just be for flash only! too bad giant has that wierd stem. cant go orange with that (yet)
