    Not able to today due to obligations with the girlfriend but I guess missing one day not due to weather is alright once in awhile.

    Actually it's not okay. You'll have to make it up during a day you would normally not ride due to weather. Sorry.

    man, those pics look so refreshing given the living hell weather we are having currently!!!!

    Happy Canada Day, and also Happy 4th to all of the Americans!!

    Haven't gotten to ride in 2 weeks due to the wedding, and taking some of my students to a summer percussion camp. BUT, hope to make up some of that in Ireland next week!! Will try to get pics if we get to ride!

    Hoping for a quick recovery!

    Our heat wave has started, 100+ starting tomorrow..can't ride early mornings until I finish training the class I have, so no rides until the weekend....maybe I can sneak one in later.

    No time for the North Shore today, but I did from home down to Spanish Banks beach through the endowment lands. I was going to take my Fuel EX, but the dropper post wasn't working properly (would support my weight), so I had to go back and get the Slash. A bit more overkill for the trails than the Fuel is ... :-)

    Castle Rock. A few pedals from my house.
    Dads and some kids built it up years ago and now a few teenagers have been adding some doubles.

    thanks for the good vibes for the 4th...despite what the media says, I still feel the love for our cross-border interaction! Much respect and love to our Canadian friends...and sorry about Trump and all that crap...hope that all goes away in 2 years...

    Didnt ride today...but rode yesterday. With the Hardtail at Beech. Rode part of Black Bear atleast 3 times....rode Hellbender....Blue Ridge Rocks....Bermese Python and Upper to Lower Green Mamba over seven runs. Hardest part was the deep, gnarled heavy section of roots on Blue Ridge Rocks. Need to figure out how to ride that section still with a hardtail. Couldnt ride it yesterday; slowed me down too much.

    Went out this morning after a week of extremely hot and humid weather. Man that sucked.

    Today was cool, and dry. I spanked out 17.9 miles with 1527 feet of climbing.

    I felt like Superman today.

    Great ride with some good lads, 7 riders all up ^^

    Bent my seat rails i.e. hit a jump and right foot came unclipped so body weight in landing was taken by rear of saddle.

    Upon hitting the next big climb, I noticed my seat pointing up at a 30į angle o_0

    Bent it by hand a little bit back towards normal.

    Will take it off & use a fixed seat post to realign ;-)

    17 miles with 1111 feet of climbing. Did a little change up on trails to show a riding buddy. I really havenít ridden that section since 1999.

    Brought back memories of V brakes, 80 mm fork and a (very) hard tail.

    Iíll take the new rigs these days.
    Flew down a nice section that in the old days was a white knuckler.

    We had such a nice ride this morning. After two weeks of heat and disgusting levels of humidity, today was a beautiful 74 degrees and low humidity. Truly enjoyed it.

    I had planned to ride with one of my groups today, and didn't pay attention to the location until I started googlemaps. Turns out we rode Big Bear, and the altitude kicked my butt, but I made it. 12miles 1500' of elevation, and the pain was worth it!

    @Chaz, nice weekend good to see your dad fly fishing!

    I was so beat, only took a few pix.

    Been on vacation the last week got to ride a new to me trail. Rode the trails at MMCC (Mid Mi Community College). Awesome trail!! Lots of climbing (itís Michigan short and steep)and nice downhill flow! Rode it twice this past week. 10 miles each ride. 16.1 total miles but just did the outer loop. Definitely will be exploring all the spur trails next trip up there!!

    After a club mountain bike ride Thursday night, got out to Fromme by myself today. Started off a little off, but got better as the ride progressed. Practiced some drops at the end of the ride. All in all a fun day...

    Last night, on the Monday night bike shop ride, we had an interesting turn of events. It's a very fast group. I always volunteer to be the sweeper and help newbies in case of a mechanical or if they need a shortcut or something.
    About a third of the way in, the shop owner realized about eight guys were alot slower than the other twenty so he broke everyone into two groups. Group one took off first. I figured since he was taking the new guys, I'd ride with group one. My thirteen year old son stayed with group two. About fifteen minutes later, my son shows up at one of the regrouping spots and says "man, are those guys slow. I'm gonna ride with you guys".
    I couldn't have been more proud. He held his own for the rest of the ride. Did a good job.

    Bless the sweepers for they are patient beyond reason. I road sweep during a recent club sponsored event. I get that folks will occasionally take the 25 year old bike off the hook for a ride with the original tubes (pretty rotten). And I get that riders of all ages and abilities will show up for an 18-mile ride even thought their previous long ride was 2 miles. What I don't get is why a family who can barely pedal at all would take on the 18 mile event rather than the 5 mile ride. I can't understand how they stayed upright, I had to zig-zag to ride fast enough to avoid being in a constant track stand. Sorry, but if you're gonna take a 6 hour ride, do it during a century, not an 18-mile trail ride. Rant over. Next year I'll carry the spare tubes.

    Fun ride on Fromme today with my friend and his 12 year old son. The kid is a good rider already! My bud maybe shouldnít stand so close when he takes pics though. :-)

    Just started back after 7 years off. Rode 4 miles in neighborhoods. My Judy XC finally collapsed and I'd like to replace it with an 80mm fork so, as my fitness slowly returns, I can get back on some singletrack.

    Rats - no ride today, though I had been looking forward to a club ride. A few hours after my morning ride yesterday, I could barely walk. It seems tendonitis in my left knee really, really flared up. My buddy thinks that perhaps it's the result of my favouring my right knee by compensating with the left, and the left has said "enough already." It feels a bit better today, but I doubt I will ride until next week, if then. Well, it better be next week! Physio appointment tomorrow, and we'll see what she says! I hate not being able to ride!

    Bummer! Hope it's nothing serious and your back at it soon! I feel your frustration, I've been off the bike (except for a short pavement ride) with a broken thumb and it sucks. Hoping to get an easy ride in tommorow at the bike park so I don't feel my seasons pass was a complete waste of money, lol.

    Healing vibes all around!

    At least you guys have a good reason not to ride..work has been sucking the life out of me. Healing vibes as well guys^^

    I did escape for a quick 11miles and 2k of elevation..I was a bit tired but it was nice to get out for a bit, mixed pavement and horse trails. If you expand the pucture, you can see 4 crows chillin, didn't want to spooke them so its a far shot.

    Thanks! Here's hoping I can at least ride something next week....
    Edit: Forgot to mention your broken thumb. That's lousy! Hope it heals quickly and soon!

    Well, it has been since November that I've been looking for a chance to ride a particular trail and I finally got it.
    Flow style, but narrow. Nothing crazy, but some very tight berms, and a few G-outs and irregular launches that nearly spoiled the day. But I prevailed! Some OK jumps, some great corners, a couple awesome saves in the dry sand, and cleared 95% of the trail without shifting. And I did "the drop" (it's pretty mild, but it is not aligned with the trail so it's weird).
    Riding the unfamiliar trail finally got me to concentrate, too. I didn't realize how nonchalant I've been riding lately until I dialed in on tire placement yesterday. I was so much more efficient. Fewer corrections. Smoother. Fast with less effort. Felt great!
    (except for that climbing without shifting stuff - my face was beet red when I finished - I may have scared a few people with my appearance )

    -F
    It's never easier - you just go faster.

    Liquid sunshine ride today. About 2800 vertical over 14 miles. It starts with a 600 foot drop and than a climb of about 1600' in 6 miles. At the drop in for the ride back down it started to sprinkle. By the time I was almost back to the 600' climb out it was full-on raining. But, this rain was warm and delicious. Most of the time I hate riding in the rain, but today it was sublime.

    Borrego to Winsor to Dead Dear to Hyde Park Rd to Winsor to Borrego was the route. Santa Fe, NM.

    Well, managed to get out to the bike park after work today. After being off the bike for over 3 weeks, the first run felt pretty ugly! But things improved quickly and had a lot of fun, and my broken thumb didn't bother me, yay!
    If it stays ok maybe I'll go back to the park on sunday (fingers crossed).

    Nice! Glad you made it out. Tomorrow I'm going on a club ride to Vedder. Saw a physio this morning she worked over the muscles and tendons on my left left leg. Amazing difference. She told me that I absolutely have to stretch that leg before and especially after! She figured that on Wednesday it just reached a point where - bam - knots and inflammation and what not! Thankfully it's nothing permanent.

    Nice morning in Massachusetts. 19 miles with 1302 feet of climbing. Iíve been hitting some loops that I havenít ridden since the 90ís and adding some new lines to those as well.

    Great ride. Will be out again tomorrow.

    Well I got my days mixed up, yet again..the group bday ride I thought was tomorrow, was today.

    What I was going to ride today will be tomorrow, so today was just 8 miles, and it got hot quickly!
    Birthday girl is in the middle. The girl up top was going to ride that rock, but changed her mind.

    The higher humidity means there is no cool part of the day, but it also means clouds, which makes for more interesting sunrises.

    Did I ride today? YES. Three times.

    We had a club ride at Vedder mountain here in BC's Fraser Valley. Was a very hot day, and I was a little concerned about my left knee which has been bugging me a lot. BUT, we shuttled, which is rare, but was very much appreciated! The trails were fun, different (to me), and there was some fun wood work!

    did you ride today?-vedder-july-14-2018-9.jpg

    After getting back to Vancouver, I quickly threw my Ridley on the rack and drove to the place my daughter was waiting for me to lend her the car for the evening. I biked home, and on the way home, I stopped at Queen Elizabeth Park where I often ride that bike.

    did you ride today?-img_4406.jpg

    Finally, when I got home, I got on a couple of busses to go the bike shop to pick up my Fuel which had been getting some work done. That was the most boring ride, since I rode only city side roads. Still, it counts! :-)

    17.2 miles today. Cloudy and very muggy. I saw for the first time in a few years a doe with her new fawn. Pretty cool as they crossed the trail right in front of me.

    Also, for the first time in maybe 5 years, I flatted. Tried using the cartridge, but no go. I could of pulled out a tube from my pack, but instead took out the phone and called the wife. Too sticky and sweaty to futz in the field. If she wasnít home, I would have no other option but to install the tube.

    Cut the sidewall in a gully. No amount of Stanís would have fixed that.

    Still, a good ride

    All the trails are closed due to ton of rain Friday night. So 35 miles of paths and gravel access roads is high 80s with ridiculous humidity. Usually I would have chilled for a bit, taken in the view but the time it took to take a pic and refill my water bottle I felt like I just climbed out of that water.

    Nothing like shedding a couple pounds of water weight lol.

    I did, but it was an adventure, so I did a thread about it in passion.

    Sure did ride today. Had a great time - until the last trail here on Mt. Fromme. Today I had two crashes off a drop on Bobsled. Once landed on front wheel. Next time too much back wheel. Third time nailed it like usual. Just a bunch of bruises and scrapes on my elbow, hip, ribs, left glute, etc. Good thing I had my pads on. I AM going to look into shorts with more padding, though. The guys who saw them said it was a good thing I had a full face on helmet on. That was probably when I did a bit of body surfing on the rocks. I'm going to feel it in my hip tomorrow (since I already do tonight). If anyone has some recommendations for under the shorts armor I'm all ears! :-)

    ^^^Ouch! Glad your ok. I have the 661 compression shorts (with chamois). They are definitly snug but very comfy, I wear them every ride (I'm a crappy rider so need all the protection I can get). The shorts have foam in various places and D30 over the hips. They worked well when I crashed last year, saved me from serious road rash.

    PS Nice picture further up of the boardwalk, looks like a fun, but scary, ride!

    Thanks Mckinley. I'll look into those shorts, for sure! As for that boardwalk, it actually wasn't that bad. On top it was about 4 feet wide. Otherwise, I might not have tried it! :-)

    Yep, almost 30 miles, 3300ft of climbing, NCT out and back from the Marilla trailhead south to Dilling Rd, some say the best old school single track in the LP of Michigan.

    Rode PBJ....then Rocky Branch twice. Timed myself once. Due to two mistakes on the downhill section of Rocky Branch; 0.6 miles....I ended up doing a 4:50 minute run due to those two mistakes.

    I finally got back to the singletrack today, and rode a 5 mile loop on a new to me trail network.
    I knew I would get a flat, and sure enough I managed to get a slow leak. I haven't had a chance to check the tire over yet, so fingers crossed that it was just a pinch flat and not a puncture.
    Now I know why my back end felt squirmy and I couldn't hop for half of the descent. It was a fun ride though and I want to practice some skills so I can get back up to 100% before the end of the year. A year and a half of occasional riding is really annoying me, I want to ride more!

    30ish miles, I suppose. Played all over Oak Mountain SP in AL, not just on the trails.
    Took longer than the mileage would suggest, as I spent a lot of time in one area clearing branches, debris and small trees from a recent storm, plus got caught up in conversation with another mountain biker for quite awhile before even starting.

    Been doing a series of hip mobility drills(actually stretches), after a scary episode with my "good" hip, which had never happened before-until the day after finalizing plans for a week-long backpacking trip, of course
    Seems they're quite effective, and for the first time since I started mountain biking, I can actually pedal continuously for miles on end without having to ignore whatever degree of discomfort. I wasn't faster, everything was just easier. Maybe I can get back to doing 35-40 mile rides again, instead of ~20 like I've been limiting myself to most of this year.

    Still a big kid...

    Rode a couple times this week (so far).
    Monday night was 10.5 miles with the Monday night group ride. Got a after work ride in last night. 8 miles of smiles. Met the Trail Coordinator for our local system. Great guy and fellow Salsa rider!

    Everything except the Red Road, the trails off of it, and that newer North Lakes Connector trail. Oh, and the top portions of the BUMP trail and Jekyll and Hyde, since I cut over on Centipede.

    I honestly don't find Thunder that much fun, but go up there occasionally and ride/walk Boulder Ridge, and even more rarely West Ridge, then come down via Thunder and Lightning, just because they're there. Even Lightning is kinda blah to me, 'cause I can't take jumps or drops and have to roll the whole thing.
    I go to Coldwater when I want to ride something screaming fast...

    First ride this week, escaped for a quick 8miles, but reached 10k of climbing for July. Took the GG out on my local horse trails. Did take some pix, and had an easy mellow ride.

    Dawn patrol today put me within striking distance of 180,000 vertical feet climbed and 2000 miles ridden for 2018 YTD. Should be able to hit both milestones over the weekend.

    Did some "adventure" biking after work today. Rediscovered a connection to a park with a bunch of multiuser trails running through it, around soccer fields, baseball fields, tennis courts, a water park, dog park, frisbee golf course and some plain old "woods". Also visited my favorite secret gravel road, short but sweet with some cool architecture. And the pea granite trails through the woods along the river as well as the boardwalk section over a swampy outpost of the river. They're in the process of building more boardwalk as well. There were a number of art installations along my route. I took a few pix of some of them. Would be cool to map out them all and make a ride of it.

    On my drive home, I was passing a road that leads to a newly acquired park I've never been to, which is an old farm. I thought briefly about driving down to check it out but then thought "nope, that's another bike adventure for another day".

    Great ride and weather today! Spanked out a solid, fast 20 miler with 1364 feet of climbing.

    Got out early and now have the rest of the day for more fun!

    My rides are usually completed by 8:00am, so today's 7:30am start made the heat noticeable. There were also more folks on the trails than I usually encounter. Any day on the bike is still a good day.

    Biking is the best therapy. Been sick all week, and then pre-dawn thunderstorms convinced me to cancel my trail plans. So instead I just did some miles in the neighborhood, and before I knew it, I had 20 miles in. I forgot I was sick until I came home and tried doing some yard work.

    Actually had a legit ride today! 60-some miles, 4 different trails, with 40-some of my closest pals. ...and maybe 3 miles of road. Not much climbing, tho. After all, It IS Ohio.

    All I got to show:
