    Sunday Muddy Sunday—Kennedy trail 9:00AM

    Don’t bring your prettyboys bikes if you don’t want to get them dirty. Should be some mud here and there, judging from the weather forecast for Sunday.

    9:00AM, trailhead at intersection of Kennedy Road and Top-o-the-Hill Road.

    I’ll be bringing my dinglespeed (32/22x17) 9:zero:7 fatbike.
    Don’t frail and blow if you’re going to Braille and Flow.

    LOL, I remember that. You didn't want to go back down to get it, and it was your glove!

    Yeah-I think that was one of my first rides in a long time-I wanted to die.

    Since I’ll be on my fatbike, I am going to hammer it up to the tree, but as Nelson mentioned, I will uphold my “no rider left behind” policy, so I will go back down the hill to collect the rest of the group, assuming I manage to get the fatbike going that fast—I’ve been riding the “lightweight” 28 pound singlespeed bike lately, and my fatbike weighs in at 38 pounds 10 ounces (verified with my new Park Tool digital scale).

    Dress in layers, it might be cold toward the bottom and middle, and much warmer in the middle of the cloud at the top of Kennedy… only to get colder and wetter down the other side (assuming everyone wants to do the fun Kennedy -> Dogmeat DH -> Powerpoles -> Rollers -> Kennedy loop). I’ll buy anyone a beer who makes it back up around to the helipad at the top (after completing the loop mentioned above).

    Oh yeah, here is the loop (from the Kennedy trailhead):

    I can't commit yet, but if I did, I would. I need the footies, been doing lots of short rides. I might bring out the rigid for this, v-brakes ftw! I need to put on some real tires though.

    You're such a hammerhead! I'll be joining along at a snail pace just to hang and get some mileage in. I just hate when things get cold, wet, and windy. Any combination of the two isn't a problem, but all three sucks! I'll be bringing the Blur 1x10 since it's already somewhat muddy.

    I’ve got tons of tires if you want to borrow/try out some knobby meats. Lemme know. I’ll be around until about 5:00PM today.

    Thanks for the offer. I've got a boatload of wirebead tires....before I went weight weenie with tires. I can throw those on the rigid, but I'm fighting a tubeless conversion on my son's build now. It's pissing me off to no end, so I may just bring my green HT since it's ready to ride.

    I'm out. Afraid of getting spanked by LP on his 399lb bike vs my 19lb rigid climbing machine. I know when to throw in the towel. That and I have my hair appointment at 11am.

    All the same...did Kennedy today. It's totally fine. First part is a bit greasy, but all good. The rain is enough to wet and cool you, but it's not cold. Was in the mid to low 50's today and should be so tomorrow. Only problem was my damn Oakleys fogging. I hate taking them off to see 'cause you don't look cool without shades.

    Went over Belgatos on the way to Kennedy. Top part of that is clay and I regretted going thru it. It 'mostly' spun off on the way down and up to Kennedy trailhead....mostly. I'm so ready for summer.

    The rain is finally here and will be here for a while. It is stuck and is just churning water to us now.

    How do you guys wash your bikes? Hose and soap, take it to the DIY car wash and pressure wash it, etc?

    I wash mine down with Pliny.

    Low pressure for the bike and lots of brushes.

    For chain lube, use a light oil like
    ProGold ProLink Chain Lube Reviews

    so there is minimal build-up.

    Degrease that chain first.

    Nice pics, Bogdan. The artsy-fartsy ones are a nice touch too!

    Was a fun ride today, despite the gooey mucky mud. Here was the route:

    Mud fun

    Good ride guys. Thanks for the photos.

    Porkstacker, you're a stud for riding that bike and making it look easy. And the chics dig it.

    Great ride. Porkstacker made me laugh so hard a couple times going up powerpoles that I had to stop peddling. The ride back home from the helipad was messy. Started raining pretty good... Dogmeat / Overgrown turned into streams. I think I ended up with 19 miles and ~4.5k before my GPS started giving me battery warnings. Longest climbing day yet on my SS.

    Sweet bike Ancient Rascal! That Lynskey is ridiculously light. I think I am going to build up a new/lighter SS this summer.

    I was on a Gary Fisher Rig 29r w/ 32x22 gearing. That was about as much gear as I can push for that many miles / feet of elevation (especially in the mud). Pretty beat today. Good meeting you guys. see you out on the trails.

    That's some tough gearing for Kennedy, especially in the mud. Fortunately I had an excuse to escape the Kennedy mud pain.... Great meeting you guys and I can't wait to do it again
