    Man, it's been so long since I posted in this forum. Life has been super busy, including a new job, a parent with health issues, and other ... stuff.

    I have been riding a lot though. Have ridden a ton of stuff I've never done before, met new friends and maybe most importantly, no trip to an emergency department in 2020!

    Been riding the local bike park lately, this is the last weekend
    Weather was decent but cool. Trails were perfect last friday and pretty good today, some mud and puddles.

    This is the first Thanksgiving we did not travel somewhere to ride. Previous years we've travelled to the Okanagan in BC, Mont Ste Anne or Vallee Bras du Nord in Quebec. This evening we did a quick spin on local trails as the sun was setting. Hope to get out again tomorrow or Monday.

    Rode out in near dark. Riding with lights is not ideal but better than not riding.

    We didn’t get much snow today but riding in 30F rain is colder than any January snow ride I’ve done.

    YES!!!! all of the snow pics have me excited!!

    We did the 6 miles today on our local trail right before it started to rain....no pics, because this is definitely a "learning" trail for me. I am concentrating on strengthening skills and pushing, so I always forget to get the phone out...lots ans lots of rooty, punchy climbs that kill my legs. But the leaves are changing, and falling, and that fall smell was all about...just awesome

    I know a lot of you love snow! Cool pics, but I’m not ready for it yet. That said some friends and I have plans to rent fat bikes this winter in Pemberton BC at least once.

    New experience for me as I was 75% (or more) done before the sun even thought about creeping up. Life is forcing my available free time into smaller and smaller windows. $35. bike light proving invaluable.

    Quick lap around Galbraith today. Blasted down SST and rode Air Chair for the first time, then off for a couple quick laps at the Bellingham pump track. Weather was so nice!

    More Galbraith laps today. Rode the other side of the mountain. Climbed up to the tower and rode Evo (so fun!), then climbed back to the top of Whoopsie Woodle and then on to Lair of the Bear. Beautiful day, but getting chilly!

    This right turn looks simple enough, but just can’t seem to get it down right. Decided to hang and take a few goes and starting to get better

    I did a long run in the morning (20km) and Chris did a long enduro ride as well... but we wanted to stretch out our legs with a few laps. The sun sets early so we carried the lights with us. Still a fun ride (and much milder temps)

    Quick lap on Chuckanut because Chuckanut dirt is soo good when it's wet around here!



    Okay...REALLY tired of my photos posting sideways. I've searched and searched and I can't find how to rotate them or have them posted properly. Can anyone help point me to the solution?

    Yep. Felt good to get out after trail closures due to wildfires and then due to snow melt and muddy conditions, and then a week out of town. Trails were really busy, but I encountered several friends and the weather was nice.

    mtbr posts your photo as it is. You're probably viewing it in an app that rotates it for you. I opened your photo in Photoshop, rotated it 90 degrees clockwise and resaved it.

    Try saving it with a new name in your app and see if it saves it with the correct orientation. A lot of people say if you crop it ever so slightly and save it, it will keep it oriented correctly so if just resaving it doesn't fix it, you can try that.
    This post is a natural product. Variances in spelling & grammar should be appreciated as part of its character & beauty.

    Was that yesterday or today?

    With my luck I’ve gone trough all of the above also. Smoke for three months, trails closed. Finally fires under control and good air quality, nice weather. Just about that time a week ago I woke up one day and couldn’t stand or walk. Diagnosed with Achilles Tendon / Tendinitis. Which has now kept me off the bike, 2020 has sucked for me.

    I noticed yesterday vehicle after vehicle with mountain bikes loaded up. I drive into the Devils Backbone trailhead out of curiosity. It was at capacity with a ranger standing guard out in front. I’m sure today as well, Little chillier and windy today but with tomorrow’s forecasted snow I’m sure a lot are taking advantage of it today.

    We did a 50 miler on pavement yesterday...my butt and neck were killing me by the end. No pics though b/c it was a great ride...good pace and cadence, and my body felt good, so I didn't want to break the feel

    did a small ride to day at the dirt trail...which was the most packed I have ever seen it...been riding there for 7 years recently, and there was actually a line at the trail entrance!! It was 70*F here in November...so people were probably trying to get some last rides in

    Sooo many little ones on balance bikes, little MTB's, BMX's....and TONS of noob parents...we ended up playing "instructor" much of the time, but it was great to see all the kids out...

    ....and they do not GAF!!! They crash, roll over stuff, roll into the brush off the trail...and just keep going

    so no pics from today either....good times though

    Thanks Chaz! I cropped it a bit and re-saved it. Here goes nothing!

    Yep, it was yesterday. Today's sky was much clearer, but yesterday's 4600' of climbing was enough for the weekend, so today I am doing fall yard cleanup. Tons of people our yesterday. I rode Coyote, Indian Summer, Blue Sky, Horsetooth, Lory, and Maxwell trying to fine tune this bike to my tastes. All contact points were changed to match my other bikes, so it is one step closer to the way I want it.

    I rode a little over 38 miles. Having been off the bike for nearly 2 weeks, I was dying to get some pedal time.

    I bought a used bike about 3 weeks ago and I am trying to get it set up the way I want it and get familiar with the way it rides. It usually takes me a month or two to get used to a different bike.

    I managed a 4 day weekend with perfect Fall weather.
    3 trails and 70 mi. on Friday.
    3 trails on Sat.
    Short hike Sunday before letting my 14 yo practice driving my truck.
    Longer hike today with the Mrs.

    Best part was Sat. afternoon. Finished trail 2 pretty OK. Was heading to trail 3 and came upon a throng heading into the TH. A juke and a jive and I sneaked in ahead of all of them (they were hemming and hawing), and proceeded to scorch the descent - better than I have all year. I peeked over my shoulder a few times, and nobody was even close to me. Like, no one in sight. Power was about tapped out, but rhythm was almost right on. Soooooo nice!

    Pics from early Sat. break time:

    A little unorthodox for a trail packing technique, but a several hundred pound deer drug around on the trails might make for some excellent trail conditions. I doubt PETA would be on board though.
    I would advise not taking my advice.

    Yea indeed I noted that a buck drug by the head makes for perfectly groomed singletrack for a fat bike.

    A “several hundred pound deer”. That would be one hell of a trophy considering a male Mule Deer tops out at 330 lbs. LOL

    A male Elk on the other hand can reach 730 lbs. But that would be one heavy load to lug around via a bike through deep snow.

    Either way PETA would have a field day with it.

    What you described fits more in this weight category.

    yeah...the drivetrain on my 94 Trek is still all original...but the last 15 years of it's life have been pavement only...

    my Krampus decided to hit a rock, and many other items 2 weeks ago in a spill down a 20 something foot hill...lots of bouncing...I only slid 10 feet down on my leg, so I am healing fine for free...clipped a tree on a tree gate pass through that I thought I had judged correctly

    It looks so pleasant. I usually avoid going during winter and ride on my exercise bike - https://bikesreviewed.com/indoor/marcy-me-709-review/ But surely will try to go on a ride this weekened

    Yesterday. 27.5 HT is in bits for a couple of mods & repairs, so I popped this back together & went for a spin. Mostly bike/walking tracks, just to keep fitness up.

    we did a cold, wet 5 mile loop on the local yokel trails since the legit trails were closed. My most fav kind of riding next to snow.

    LOTS of downed trees from the recent big wind events, so the camp saw got a bit of a work out. Got to build a couple new log overs too. But the downed leaves kept the trail from being too muddy, though they were slippery.

    These trails will become home here as winter comes in. The legit trails don't open much cause of the wet.

    We keep forgetting to snap pics because we don't stop as much now. And today, the stopping included work...

    Bit of a test/break in ride, after a couple of little mods & repairs. New 180mm disc, 4 piston caliper, refaced the bottom bracket shell & new bearings. Rides lovely again.

    agreed!!!

    Hope to get out tomorrow as today was decorations and "purging of the house" day for the holidays. Seeing the snow pics are getting my hopes up for some of that around here this year...and ghood riding the white stuff w/o FAtties? Risky....

    We did an afternoon ride along the Humber River. A few mature trees recently toppled over, changing the landscape and creating opportunities too. Some fun wheelies, finding a deer skull in this vast forest (R.I.P. Bambi). Cool ride and we had the whole forest to ourselves

    Looks like a great day in the forest Cyclelicious. That tree ride looks intimidating.

    We had a beautiful clear Colorado day today. Colder temps kept the trails a bit quieter than they have been in recent days.

    Haven't ridden since the bike park closed last month, too much work and stress! But the weather was nice on saturday so did a short ride to check out a new trail. Was good to get out.

    Was a beautiful evening here, a very mild 23-24 degrees C, so I broke out my converted XC/flat bar/gravel bike, & went for a spin around the river. Shot these along the way

    Rode very well for 11+ miles but had a P.I.T.A. mechanical when a stick buried my chain between my cassette and spokes. Had to break the chain to get it out and remove a bent link. In the hustle and bustle of fixing the mechanical, I dropped my cycling glasses in the leaves on the side of the trail and couldn't find them.

    Does yesterday count?

    55° and sunny skies with perfect hero dirt. Today the high is 45° and windy. Glad I got the good stuff before the change.

    Another lovely evening here, little bit cooler, & a bit windy. Dragged out the 650B and went for a spin. Playing cameras wastes heaps of time
