    There is so much area in north Arkansas to ride like that and I’ll never be able to ride it all. We are blessed with an incredible amount of public land here. I’ve been all over the country out west and love it, but we’ve got it good here in Arkansas too.

    got my first ride in a few weeks in today (due to work and rain)

    about 38*F...4 hours before the next dose of rain. Trails were still frozen in some places, and pretty muddy in others. Much of this area was under water a week ago

    some parts were "Hero dirt" for around here

    Krampus happy to be out again!!!

    this damn tree is my nemesis! Can only get my front wheel up on it. It is about 3 feet including the space between the log adn the ground It is about 10 feet from where the bike pic above is taken. I will clear this one day....
    did you ride today?-3-9-19-2.jpg


    so for the past 6 months, we have had tons of rain...much of the trail along the river has been eroding away. Trail that has been there for 40 years at least. Rode this stretch 2 weeks ago, and this tree, and the trail around it were in tact

    would have been cool to see this go. Things like this amaze me in a way...nature just keeps doing it's thing...
    did you ride today?-3-9-19-5.jpg

    right on the edge...have/had to blaze a new trail through the brush to the right of the pic
    did you ride today?-3-9-19-10.jpg

    The Swamp. The halfway point on this ride...partially frozen, partially really muddy...will be under water probably again after tonights rain
    did you ride today?-3-9-19-7.jpg

    Krampus happily muddy after going through The Swamp...the Knards were full!!
    did you ride today?-3-9-19-8.jpg

    more erosion damage on the 2nd half of the trail. I have a feeling this will be gone in the next few weeks...there was actually more on this part, but I was tired of stopping for pics.

    I ride this system since our official trails are closed. This is a system that we blazed as kids on BMX bikes in the 70's, so it has been cool to see how it has changed

    So much more snow than normal right now. I’m itching to ride dirt on 2.4s but that is a LONG way off this year.

    26 Mile Descent!!

    I was gone for 2 weeks but I got one ride in: my wife bought the Haleakala road descent tour into Paia. The ride starts near the gates of the NP at ~6500 ft and goes to the ocean.
    They provided Worksman bikes with drum brakes. Super stable. If we'd skipped the breakfast stop, we woulda finished in just over an hour. We could have gone faster, but not everyone in the group was comfortable with the speed/bikes.

    Notice that the ride leader is riding side-saddle so he can watch his clients....at 30mph.

    He also managed to spot a green chameleon in a green tree among a bunch of other green trees...while riding side-saddle at 30mph.

    Logistics prevented me from doing the off-road descent from 10,000ft.

    Only the third time I was on a real bike this week, but I got out to Pacific Spirit Park for a ride down to Spanish Banks. It was nice to get out and do at least little climbing in the real world. Not that I love climbing, but it's prep for the season...

    9" of snow last week and 2 days of 50°f temperatures have combined to create a sloppy mess, closing all of our local trails. Today this forced me onto my road bike for the first time in over 2 years. That 53 x 11 gear is a ton of fun, and the paved descents at speed are almost as fun as single track. I didn't have the guts to push the descents any faster than 45mph due to the gusty cross winds.

    Too much snow for fun fat biking. That is actually the top of a bench in front of the bike.

    The area around here is well packed and rideable with a lot of effort. The regular trails were hike-a-bike, so I just turned around...

    Had a fun time Sunday on the trails and reminded of cycle healing properties; Brain clarity, feeling strong and working out body kinks after a long winter of doing less riding. Most of these past few months have been city path stuff on the bike or more hiking.
    I'm hooked again after some tech terrain and climbs I had no idea I'd be able to accomplish. I really thought the other rider would leave me in the dust on his lighter rig and 8 years my junior. No doubts he could have if he wanted to though.

    His purple Honzo looks best with my "Roarange" Marin as nearby contrast so that's probably the incentive for him not losing me.
    Got some bike clean up to do now and my swap to Rocket Ron on the back proved and good choice as tested on ice, snow and all phases of dirt and muck.

    Excited for lighter evenings, mild temps on the way and way more ride opportunity.
    I heard a vaccination joke the other day

    My wife and I spent around 4 hours today riding in Jackson Demonstation forest and we had a great time. The trails have held up really well to all of the rain this winter. After our ride we grabbed tasty burritos, then we walked our pooch out to the bluffs. Not a bad day.

    My wife and I went for a ride again today. Lots of climbing and our legs are shot, but we can’t wait to get back out there.

    I took my girlfriend for her first real trail ride on her new bike. They have a kids trail that I started her on just so she got used to her bike, gear selection, and adjusted her shifters and brake levers to her liking. We then went to the black forest trail at enterprise south which is their easiest trail. It still has plenty of climbing along with flow down hill. She did wonderful and after we finished she was all smiles.

    I'm sensing some much needed stoke in recent posts!
    Great pix.

    Got out for a short ride last evening (in actual daylight! - geeze, there's a whole world out there), then back out early this morning. The evening ride was on the not-muddy-but-still-soft Towpath - holy leg pump, Batman! That was a workout - with the return trip on the road.
    The morning ride seemed more energized than usual despite the trails being frozen hard with continuous heavy pock marks and shoe prints. The legs just kept stomping! But then I haven't done back-to-back rides in a long time. Great sunrise, too. (no pix)

    Just a few miles, covering the same loose chunky steep (for me) section a few times. Working on fork settings, but quickly found that I'm not confident enough yet for clip pedals. Uphill, level, and smooth flowing ok, but chunky loose stuff, and I feel trapped and vulnerable. did you ride today?-img_20190313_172105.jpegdid you ride today?-img_20190313_173259.jpeg

    We decided to go visit the old growth redwood today. Lots of steep climbing to get there, but the payoff is a long serpentine descent. By the time we reached the car, Thai food and beers were all we could think about.

    Thanks Cyclelicious...we pretty much lucked out with the weather here this week. We usually head up here for a week in February, but work was too crazy then. Looks like we dodged a bullet there. I just hope the trails I ride most in the Bay Area have had a chance to dry out this week too. Running on the treadmill in the garage at home is better than nothing, but I’m ready for spring!

    3X this week!
    Following my mantra of "just go" I hastily gathered my gear and headed out on my old StumpJumper under threatening skies right after I got home from work yesterday. Dodged rain drops for 17 mi. on the MUP since trails are soaked. Much needed smoothing out of my blocky pedaling into smooooth circles. I think I felt better afterwards than before I started despite putting in some real work. The skies opened up just as I packed it in.

    We rode out to Ride Thru and Gunslinger today. It was good to see Gunslinger’s mascot is still keeping an eye on the joint.

    Lots of cool pictures! Nice to see people riding

    Pretty slow here. Got out once the week before on some trails in town that were pretty clear of snow and ice.

    did you ride today?-img_2614-edited.jpg

    Hiked my usual trails to check out the conditions, still lots of snow and ice Will be another week or so to clear up. Hoping to ride sunday on some other trails that are free of winter conditions.

    I did....twice! China Camp in the morning since I was already more than half way there for family stuff. Then went north to Angel and really hurt myself. Man, I how to ride enough this season that I don't feel so out of shape.

    Pics are from China Camp as the gimbal was dead. No pics from Annadel as I was going for non-stop and video. did you ride today?-screenshot_20190316-162822.jpegdid you ride today?-screenshot_20190316-162837.jpegdid you ride today?-img_20190316_113115.jpegdid you ride today?-img_20190316_114706.jpegdid you ride today?-img_20190316_120749.jpegdid you ride today?-img_20190316_105641.jpeg

    I had some fun and took an MTBR newbie on his first ride at Duthie Hill! He did much better than he realized. I was proud of him

    Today we rode the rail bikes along the Skunk Train tracks. Just had to wait for the train to pass so the coast was clear. Each rail bike had a pedal assist, but we didn’t need it

    Got out on the Fuel EX in the Delta watershed today. It was beautiful. Pic is of me trying to make something out of nothing. :-)

    This evening, we rode along the banks of the bloated Humber River. The river was very high and fast flowing. The ice breakup caused some local flooding. The studded tires worked their magic on the icy trails. Along the way we checked a train for hobos and spotted a puddy tat on a grassy knoll. Caturday comes full circle

    Glad you were able to get back out there. My forecast shows lots of rain in the upcoming week. At least we’ve had a few clear days recently

    got a rare afternoon ride in on Saturday....temps in the mid 40's...trails, except for the Swamp, were in really good condition. We had a week of mostly dry weather though...official trails are still closed though

    usual picture spot right before the nemesis log. Dirt was so good today...

    did you ride today?-2-3-16-19.jpg

    the Swamp was not too watery, but deep and sticky today...there was mud. I had to hit the lines straight and fast or I would get stuck...
    did you ride today?-3-3-16-19.jpg

    ..and I did get stuck right before where you get back onto regular trail
    did you ride today?-4-3-16-19.jpg

    The Tunnels...because the tree cover is low and forms a tunnel, was super fun...very twisty, flowy, and some blind corners. It was pretty easy to run this stretch fast today b/c you could see thru the trees in the turns, and the tires were sticking decent
    did you ride today?-5-3-16-19.jpg

    there were 2 places where there are trees down across the path (behind me in the pics), hence the stop for pics. I normally never stop here, and wish I had my saw with me...
    did you ride today?-6-3-16-19.jpg

    The Swamp on the 2nd lap...got all the way across this time, but it killed me!

    the Knards were completely full just the other side of The Swamp

    Yep, 9.3miles of fun. Lots of flowers, rabbits, squirrels, lizards, and its so overgrown, there was more ST than usual. Last pic is when it was dry and dusty. Snow still kinda low but it was a warm 80° ride.

    Well, I didn't really plan on riding today (I felt kinda lousy), but my daughter said she wanted to go, so we went back to the Delta watershed here in BC's lower mainland. It ... was ... a ... beautiful ... day! I rode the Slash (talk about overkill for those trails) and she rode the Fuel EX.

    Now, my daughter isn't really a mountain biker. She likes road biking. And wants to take up cyclocross. But she actually had a good time. She wanted to practice getting over some obstacles. Even wanted to learn to jump a bit. I didn't make her do anything. She sessioned stuff without me talking her into it. I just let her set the pace. And she did great! Pretty good form on everything, especially for a beginner.

    She's been pretty resistant to mountain biking in the past. She's gone a few times with me, but she said she an unqualified good time today. I don't mind if she doesn't become a fanatic, but at least she can have a good time when we go. Fun times.

    I got out on Saturday, and for the first time did two rides, at different locations. First stop was at China Camp in the late morning. It was pretty busy there, Norco was demoing, lots of bikers, a tour van with multiple bikers, plus the hikers and boy scouts. The pics are from there.

    Second stop was couple hours after at Annadel State Park, where I did my favorite small loop. With the gimbal charged back up (it turned on and died in the trunk before China Camp), I did video rather than pics and went for personal bests. I was tired already so the uphill was close to best time but not quite. However, the downhill run, even with a crash and checking out the bike before continuing, I got my best time down. Very excited about that.

    Why does the uploader not like to display pics in portrait orientation?

    Day 3 of the ride on the Kokopelli trail from Fruita, CO to Moab, UT. It is still too early for the high stuff, so we rode the road along the Colorado River into Moab and finished with about 110 miles for the 3 days.

    Ticked one off the gravel climb bucket list after doing Jacob's Ladder in Tasmania.

    Beautiful but relentless 1100m climb that is well worth it in the end!

    Back on the neighborhood trails today after getting home from a killer mtb vacation. Still some super muddy spots in a couple of areas that never get direct sun, but overall the trails were really good today. Definitely felt like spring out there, but it’s supposed to rain the rest of the week. I decided to get while the gettin’s good.

    Wednesday trail monitoring. Still dark out at 5:30a. We're in the freeze-thaw, but things are softening up enough that I'll have a few weeks off pretty soon. 28F and frost heaves everywhere. The fatbike does pretty well in these conditions, and it's sorta slow, but every once in awhile you find some speed, you get into a turn and lean your tires up on edge, and the frost heave disintegrates under your tires and you miss your line by about a foot. Somehow that's fun. That and sideswiping trees. I had 9 swipes out of 10. The 1 out of 10 was a dull thud, but I stayed on the bike.
