    The Illuminated Trail Selection t.i.t.s. full mOOn nite ride!!!

    Full Worm Moon March As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.
    as taken from here.


    Thursday at 6:00pm Ironworks- temps warm for a couple days then cold we should be good to go. Any reports would be helpful. Its almost buff creek night riding season!



    and this vid has nothing to do with a full moon just liked it:

    Coming from MN, this is what I relate to
    My parents still tap the maple tress on our property for some rightous maple syrup!

    Oh, I think I'll come ride bikes too!

    Ever notice how videos seem to add the deraileur noise despite companies making improvements to eliminate deraileur's bouncing around?

    My DH bike is nearly silent. I hear the rear shock more than the rear deraileur.
    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.

    Quoted from my Rep: MN Maple trees are not real Maple trees. Vermont or get lost.

    Fixed it for you, J

    Somebody's a dumba$$

    Sugar maple: Minnesota DNR

    Vermont State Tree - Sugar Maple

    same tree, Acer saccharum

    Can't wait to get dinged by some loser lurker.

    And by the way, Canada out produces Vermont 6:1. NYS produces roughly half of what VT does.

    X-fingers for good trail conditions...I need to ride!

    If the trails look good up there and I'm not to smoked from work I will try to make this ride. How long and amount of climbing I am trying to see if I can survive on the single speed.

    Sweet! Climbing? We've kept it to one trip up here lately- but if it's more rideable well prob climb up twice- routes varying- so 1200-1400 maybe 12 ish miles

    You'll be fine on SS!

    Got my groove back, time to ride bikes. Thanks to GBS for getting me the crash replacement and getting it installed!

    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    X2.. This will save you a ton of time and headache. Take I-25 north to exit 184 (Founders). Turn left follow till Santa Fe (HWY 85) Turn right. Then to 470 West. 470 to Alameda.

    Are we riding at 6, or are we going to dick around and drink at 6 and ride after a leisurely pint? This affects when I'll be arriving.

    Or a third option, Slam the pint, ride at 6:05.

    If we keep drinking like this I'm gonna have to stop considering this a health benefit!

    I'm also swearing off wings for a while. Holy F.

    These rides just keep gettin' better and better every week, month, year(s).....

    Last night was the epitome of a 't.i.t.s' ride, through and through.
    From the people who ride, to the conditions we get to ride, to the service we get @ IW

    Thanks boys!
