    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

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

    From this weekend's ride

    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.

    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!

    Weather is getting cooler but riding doesn't stop.


    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

    Bike had to teach me a lesson on Saturday (how quickly I forget basic skills when away from the bike for a while).

    And, a view from the ride. Near Calistoga, CA.

    ^^Yikes, time for a new helmet!

    With deer season over, I got out on some local snowmobile trails yesterday that I had been avoiding by landowner request. Still ran into a couple of armed men, though, as it is still bird season. They were friendly and we wore orange.

    Nice! Where is this? Reminds me of the summit of Hunter Mtn. in the Catskills with the fire tower..don't know if you've ever climbed up one of those, but it's pretty freaky!

    Hi! It's Mt. Beacon, about 60 miles south of Hunter Mtn. I've never ridden in the Catskills but I definitely want to explore up there in the spring

    Went out to ride Brown's Camp (Tillamook Forest, OR) yesterday and found a foot of snow in the parking lot. Skunked!

    So we went to LL Stub Stewart and checked out the trailbuilding efforts of the local mtb club. Kinda icy in spots, but good stuff. Even rode the beginner freeride line.

    Everybody else bailed on the ride, so it was just me & my sweetie. Which meant a lot of makeout breaks. Proving once again that nothing has changed since I was 14: all I want to do is ride my bike and chase boys.

    Well, since the ground is covered by about 2 feet of snow, and there's no place around here (that I'm aware of) where there is any packed trail..today's "riding" consisted of practicing track stands in the living room.

    I think tmo will be the day I see if riding in this white stuff is even possible. I'm getting some serious cabin fever.

    Oh yes, the fatbike is a must have if you have snomobile trails! And it looks like a real January thaw this winter too. Have fun and watch out for ice patches if there are any left by then. If we get a good freeze afterward, a regular MTB will work on the snomo trails as well, especially if you have studded tires.
