    What are your favorite training rides for your road bike. Brian Greiger taught me this one. Eagle Middle School West out Floating Feather to SR 16 north towards Emmett, East at Chaparral just past firebird raceway that will becomes Edna Ln , then west onto Purple Sage to Middleton Rd south, continue across 44 to Lincoln turn E , doglegs into Joplin to star Rd, go north back to floating feather and Eagle middle school. 39.1 miles.

    Training? For mountain bike riding? Isn't that like fcvking for virginity?

    Nonetheless, when trails are too muddy I'll go everywhere and anywhere on the CX. Pound-for-pound the most fun bike to own for the Treasure Valley.

    Ever.

    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    Wet???? It is August! I do not want to think about wet trails until maybe late November or December. That being said, I usually hit the dump loop or ride out past the velodrome to the end of the road up there. Out and back makes for a quick 20 miler from my house in the north end.
    Ride the bike.

    I have to chuckle. The Boise folks don't have trails like those in CDA (or like New Denver) that hold up well when the moisture hits them. Their trails get trashed because of the clay content.

    Is the dump loop Hillside, seamans, cartwright bogus, and is all pavement? Total mileage for the loop?

    18.5 miles for the paved loop. Do it on your cross bike and add the trails at seamans gulch, hidden springs, polecat and cartwright for a real work out. Not that I've ever completed all that in one ride....

    Best winter training ride - skate skis. Do that all winter and you'll be in better shape come spring that you are after an entire season of riding.

    Winter is for sliding, not riding.
