    That's the largest mushroom I have ever seen!

    As for riding every day, I try to although I only get to ride trails once a week. I exercise my dog almost every day with the bike, with the only exceptions being if we are going trail riding the next day as it is usually a longer ride and I don't want to over do him, or because of weather.

    17km today. Getting back into shape again in a new locale, with new trails for me to explore! Apparently barely riding for a month has had a negative effect on my fitness levels...shocker!

    Got out for about 15mi today at a local park. I had wanted to head a bit farther afield and do some backcountry riding today, but the wife got sick and I needed to combine my ride with some errands (picking up some prescriptions, cat food, etc), as well as be relatively nearby in case she needed something else. Trying to help her mend up quickly because we're headed to Pisgah next weekend. I'm trying to fight off some kind of nasty bug, myself. I mostly feel good (especially after my doc hooked me up with some antibiotics a few days ago), but will probably have that lingering dry cough that tends to last for a couple of months.

    Weather was absolutely perfect. Partly sunny. Light breeze. Temps in the 60's. Actually starting to feel like maybe autumn is thinking about paying a visit. That's mucho welcome because it was in the 90's less than a week ago.

    We had a family ride today. Took the girls, 8 and 6 years old thru the woods so it was slow going but that's ok. I can go my pace any other time. It's great to see the progress they have made riding and how much they like riding with their mom and I. 6.2 miles in 1 hour 45 minutes but was worth every minute.

    Today no, but yesterday yes. This summer has been a tough go to get motivated with the high temps. But now that it's starting to cool down I see more action in the next couple of months. Here's yesterday's ride at 78 degrees which is quite the relief from the mid nineties.

    That's funny because I'm trying flats out now too. After over thirty years of toe clips and straps the clip less since the first came out. Interesting. Seems to be easier on my back which has been bothering me for a while. I think I've ridden every day for two weeks now. I ridden a lot this season because the snow left the valley early so I've been riding four to six days a week since then. Sometimes twice a day. And never in the bike park.

    I've maybe missed only 4 or 5 days this season so I took this rainy weekend off.
    I'll be on the trail first thing in the AM.
    Can't wait, I'm getting antsy.

    I don't ride on the weekends. There's just too much traffic, and I usually bring the dog. I'll ride tomorrow and not see anyone.

    The weather was absolutely perfect today, so we took the Jeep out and had a picnic off 3N16 in north Big Bear.

    Yep, only a short road ride with an old riding buddie (for the first time ever I'm fitter than him)...
    Not working att he moment and trying to regain some fitness (progressing, but a long way to go) and I'd ike to get out every day, but if I smash myself on a 3 hour road ride, or liek the other day 2 hard hours of mtb (hard for me, not anyone else), not doing much of anything the next day.
    But spring has well and truly hit my neck of the woods, I may have to get out for a quick mtb ride this afternoon.
    All the gear and no idea.

    Had the best worst ride today. Recently got our middle kid a nice bike that he loves, scored a Mongoose Etero Elite for cheap with several upgrades. We rode a few more advanced trails, and he had a blast. I ended up dropping my chain in to my cassette and it got caught in between two rings. It's an old cassette and needs to be replaced anyway, but ended up riding about 10 more miles after that with a 2x6 geared bike. Also got a sidewall tear going through a rock garden, which was a blast too. Got to show the boys how to do some trail side repair which was good too. Today I get to go shopping for a new cassette and replace my tires for the season a bit early. Think about going with a less aggressive tread style.

    If you mean Sunday, yes I rode. With my wife. She crashed and had a flap of skin hanging off her knee. Being near a road I cycled back to the parking lot, got the car, and picked her up. She rewarded me later for being gallant. The reward was better than the ride.

    No riding today. Job interview.
    Try to ride every day, to work and back, come rain, shine or snow.

    Too much rain over the weekend (if 'today' referred to Sunday as of this writing), so not for me. However, today has cleared and is sunny, so I'm hoping to get out after work.
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    I had that reaction the first time I tried flats after old school clips/straps (weird theme going on). Tried them again with Five Ten shoes and been riding flats ever since.

    To keep with the thread...Saturday & Sunday, about 18-ish miles. Today, leaving soon.

    Yes today, finally 7miles - Amazing how much you lose when you don't ride for a while, but I did clear a section which I've already cleared twice but today it was smoother, faster and more enjoyable.

    Rode to work for the first time ever (10 mi round trip), then went to the bike shop. Picked up a co2 tire "pump" and a tube, along with tire spoons and a water bottle. Then later in the day i rode a couple blocks to the store. I am absolutely loving my new to me bike.

    i didnt.

    rode yesterday with a pain in my abdomen..down low. took it easy, paying attention on not crashing. today, was about to ride when my neighbor saw me walking slow holding my abdomen..right above my pecker..she said.."hey, do you have a hernia?"

    wtf? i dunno. put the bike back, and sat on couch. i'll see if it still hurts tomorrow

    okay..not a hernia. i googled it. still gonna take it easy. probably a muscle strain from a goofy mtb "crash"..i just topple over.

    Had a color run on our trail last weekend, left some colorful areas on the trail, pretty cool, especially when riding at night.




    Snakes were out and about today too. I believe this was just a Texas Water Snake, not a water moccasin, but I didn't stick around long enough after he moved off the trail to find out.


    Also got in an evening ride with the kids during on weekly wednesday night rides. About 20 miles total for the day, planning on doing it again today.

    I had chicken pox as an adult. I was 35... terrible experience; covered from head to toe. Never again, please and thank you.

    Speedy recovery for your daughter and especially a return to biking for you

    I haven't ridden in 3 days now! I don't get out near as often as I'd like, but try to get at least a short (3-5 miles) ride 4-5 times a week. This week has been a scheduling nightmare. I do commute to work when I can, but cannot do so when I have to pick up the kids from school/daycare, which has been the trend this week.

    +1 on the chickpox are awful as well. Speedy recovery to your little one, Ghost!

    ... so... my mother in law is looking after the little one today... I'm gonna finally get on my bike, I thinks...

    NAH!

    Today it was pi**ing down so my wife asked me nicely, in that way she does, to give her a lift to work... So I drove instead...

    We're moving house next week so I can't see more riding on the horizon either...
    Ah well, there's always next season... (or winter riding on studded tires... )

    Happy trails, guys (and gals)

    Rode a local run today called 'Oh Shit Ridge', which is definitely the most hairy in our network. It's the first time i've ridden it on my new fs, and I almost cleared it, but had to step off about 100ft from the end of the trail. It's the steepest trail i've ridden, filled with loose rocks, dirt and a drop off to either side at times. Definitely an adrenaline rush and a brake tester. My new Guides were awesome. I haven't even come close to clearing it on my hardtail, so I was stoked to get so far, even though I didn't clean it. At the bottom there is a very nice rock jump to reward you for hanging on the whole way down.... =)

    Hell yeah I rode today! I even brought my youngest out with me to start introducing her to the sport. We had a great time, even though the pace was slow and we took several breaks after the climbs. The great news is she wants to ride with me next weekend again.

    Yes. Yes I did. A commute to the office, but ass on saddle time none the less.

    I even had the little one (she is over the chicken pox!) out on her balance bike on Sunday. She lifted her feet on a downward slope for the first time and balanced! Daddy was do proud

    Happy Days!

    Does my ignorant mind understand that right; whille having fun with the stuff we like so much (MTB), you cut down someone else's fun? Please write down it is not the case...
    And yes, I had one of the best rides ever today, the Slavnik mountain.. we just had to climb it twice and ride superb natural DH..twice☺

    Weather is perfect.

    Cut firewood.

    Did trail work.

    Rode bike.

    Cooked a steak for the wife and I, and burgers for the kids.

    Drank beer, then ate ice cream.

    Now surfing mtbr.

    Perfect!

    Just another couple of degrees warmer and I'll be out there.
    Might as well soak it up now, another month and warm rides won't be an option.

    that mushroom is tasty.
    How did you prepare the puff ball?
    We're having a bumper crop this year.

    Of course I rode this morning.

    I rode my new cross bike on some pea gravel highways. Except for a short section of single track where I goofed up getting on to a short bridge. Fell off and landed on my back in a deep puddle. Deep enough that water flowed over my head. Totally soaked but it was a nice clear fall day and not too cold so I continued. Shoes on the boot dryer.

    Did you ride today!

    Yes,
    Today's ride was nothing short of perfect. Perfect temperature of 53 degrees. Perfect weather / overcast and dead still. Perfect dirt due to small rain storm last night. And perfect non crowded condions. I had the place to myself on a Saturday, unheard of.

    Be sure to click on the fancy embedded videos.

    Didn't ride today. Too much rain in the past couple weeks, and I want to be a good Samaritan. Sun in the forecast the next couple days though, so I'll be hitting it at least 3 times this week.
    I've gone to find myself. Should I get back before I return, please tell me to wait.

    Did a shuttle journey on the Ragged Trail today. Beautiful scenery and weather, dropped in from around 10k feet down into elevations where the aspen still have their leaves. Lot's of pedaling, and one strenuous bit when we tried to take a shortcut to add more singletrack to the ride (we ended up hopping downed trees for miles), and then lots of fast doubletrack downhill. 28 miles, including 5 of road/dirt to get back to the truck. Great ride!

    This ride was from 2 days ago. The grandmother watched my daughter and it was unexpected so I got to ride longer than normal. My legs were toast from the short steep pitches on the SS. I wanted to go back up the hill for another round but the hamstrings were warning me that they may not cooperate.

    Gotcha, I've seen plastic fenders for bikes, but I should've known you wouldn't have them installed on a Bronson. I need to bring a change of clothes. Either it's a tsunami or great weather here. I considered getting a dedicated commuter, but my commute is so short and I don't need another bike for such a short commute.

    210min ride today (after a 90min ride yesterday & a 60min ride on Friday)... was riding w/ two whippets. This made the 8000m's of climbing rather loney. My legs were dying on the climbs & then again on the descents =(

    Two rides today.
    Need to reach my season mileage goal before the cold weather descends.
    Anything after that is just for bragging rights.

    And if it weren't football night I'd attach some lights and do a few more miles.
    Tomorrow.

    Cold weather is already descending on me. Today I rode to work, it's less than 5 minutes, and I was shivering. I was wearing jeans, 2 jackets, turtle fur hat, and pearl izumi gloves up to 40 degrees. Gonna have to start layering up better.

    Rode a trail network yesterday that I hadn't ridden before, it's probably one of the most techy we have in the Triangle area; New Light.

    From the parking lot, in order, I rode First Loop, Route 66, The Gauntlet, Way In Way Out, and East Street.

    Overall, I found the trail to be a fun one. Not much flow, kind of choppy, but some nice short rooty climbs (one that particular got my attention as it had a log roll at the top of it - nice sadistic touch), and some spicy bits that weren't too challenging, but enough so to keep you on your toes.

    It's primarily known for The Gauntlet, which has assorted rock gardens, etc,... see below for a couple nice sections...





    Here's a profile view of the above...

    Damn, Woodchips - those trails look nice. I managed to ride today for the first time in weeks (moving house pretty much eats up all my time at the moment) - thing is; it was from my parents in law (where we are living until the house is finished) to my office - an eye watering 1.3 km and 5 minutes...

    Rode a small plantation block of trails about 90 mins ago. It's undergoing development, so bits are still a little soft. One real nice tight, twisty new trail was highlight. Hit some more stuff on Thursday ^^

    Hey Targnik you opinionated mofo; call me jealous much. I was close today, had planned a lunchtime ride. Great trails 20min from work, 50min loop than back to breadwinning. It was a good idea, but work got in the way this time. Is it Saturday soon?

    **** yeah I rode today. Can't put the miles in because I'm injured, but a spirited 4 miles on a beautiful 70 degree fall day was a nice treat, even if it was pushing the limits a bit.
    I've gone to find myself. Should I get back before I return, please tell me to wait.

    21 miles in 60 degree weather with near perfect trail conditions

    I rode around the bock twice tonight. It was my first ride in 6 years. I have been working for about 2 months putting my bike together. Very happy to get back in the saddle.

    Had an awesome time at Warrior Creek and Headwaters yesterday, weather was perfect. Leaves were everywhere, and, thankfully, I just missed running over a box turtle that was center trail...

    Did about 5 miles today on some recently discovered trails down the road from my house. Did take a wicked spill into some rocks after hitting some wet leaves.

    But all in all a pretty good ride.

    Rode about 6 miles of single track today with my better half. She has been off the bike for awhile due to a new job and a ton of leaves covering the trail so things were slow going. A slow ride on the bikes felt great today. She hit a couple of obstacles that she never did before and made them look like child's play. I hit a jump that I have been eyeballing all year. One of those that looks monstrous until you conquer it. Went back and hit it 3 more times with increasing speed each time. Very happy with both of us today. I love those small victories.

    No ride today. It rained all day at times heavy. 4°C all day too. Trails would be like soup. Tomorrow and Monday look better though. Maybe I'll ride up to the snow line if I can.

    "Did you ride today?"

    No.... :-(

    Combination of chores that needed doing, and pissing down rain all day. I don't really mind riding in the rain, but it is soooo much harder to get started when it's already raining hard.

    Didn't take the camera on today's ride, but I should have. There was pretty big coyote I came across.

    The sparse clouds yesterday made for a cool sunset.

    Holy crap - congrats!

    I know I'll never do anything close to that, but, as I'm curious, what was your ride profile like (in general)?

    "Did you ride today?"

    Yup, twice!

    Went for a ride this morning. Wet, sloppy, slippery roots, rain, mid forties.
    Had a blast.

    Then I found out a buddy wanted to ride today, and I thought, I had so much fun, why not, lets go for round two. Second ride, the sun had come out, so still wet and sloppy, but much nicer out, might have hit 50 degrees.

    First ride a bit over 13 miles, second almost 9, and ended the week with 37 miles and 4 rides.

    Too wet to ride trails after Friday's rain and yesterday's post nasal drop weather, so today was a 26-mile in-the-city ride w/ non mountain biking friends and explored progress on a paved Multi-Use Path. Sunday mornings are nice with minimal traffic.
    Gorgeous day.

    I swear it's rained here for so long now, my last three big rides have been rained out. So I did some gravel / forest service stuff the past couple days. It ain't Pisgah, but it's sure better than the couch.





    Had to bring some anti-freeze today

    Yep, was a bit warm and windy here. Got stopped by a lady just after the main "climb" on my ride for directions, knew the area a bit, but not the street names, gave here the directions then on my way. Since I was actually riding the same as the directions I gave her, realised a while later, that I'd given completely crap directions, turn around and zoom back, found her and gave her the correct directions. (I'd sent her km's up the road, she only need to go about 100m, whoops)
    All the gear and no idea.

    You did much better than I did... - I wanted to ride (trails) so bad but since everything was soaked, I did some major deep couch sitting instead. Btw, good idea to bring Stanley along, don't want those pipes to freeze!

    Ha ha, I couldn't stand it anymore, just needed some seat time. Obviously much more mellow than single track, but cool in it's own way, like not seeing another person for over two hours. Sometimes the solitude is nice.

    Does trail work count? Decided that instead of riding to hit the trails with my leaf blower today. Spent two hours out there.

    Wove a two hour ride into the morning- no rain and perfectly cool weather. DuPont is still about 5% squish from the last several days of rain, but the trails were mainly ok. After a several day layoff, I PR'd one Strava trail segment, go figure. Twenty min. to DuPont and about the same to Pisgah. Life is good.

    trails were slick and my four riding companions were all taking turns at star fishing! the deep, wet ruts caused all the drama... add in a little hike n bike then a 50 min climb back to home plate ^^ 2x cold beers to top it all off =)

    Yesterday's ride was harder. Climbing steep stuff. Probably a couple pitches around 30 %. Not much snow at the high point but enough that I had to walk up the last pitches. No traction. Descents were good though. Rode It's Business Time which was in the whistler enduro a couple years ago. So today was a light ride. Light snow fall at one point. Lots of mushy corners and washing out. Much fun.

    I rode today! First ride after a few months recovery (because of ++ injury). I felt pretty good and I kept it tame. The weather was glorious, trails were tacky

    Nice ride in this morning. I had to put the commute on hold for a bit because of the snow, but today the roads were pretty clear.

    We had an excellent ride today and we did some trail building....we cut through tangled vines, deadfall and hawthorn; heard a couple of partridges, saw some woodpeckers and a "mustang".

    YES! I rode today! The first time i put a leg over my bike in 7 weeks! 10km commute into work in -5degC on icy roads on my new Schwalbe Ice Spikers - it was... hard work.
    I used around ten minutes more than expected... (29 minutes for 10km).

    Turns out low pressure and 300 studs affects your rolling resistance... huh...

    Getting after it before the snow. We got 6" today on the Front Range of Colorado. Our first snow storm for the year. Besides a mere dusting on a couple prior occasions.

    So I take it you rode until the end and started building again.

    35 degree workout ride today on my 11.5 mile inner-base loop. Mostly 2 track, some single, some paved, some 1st gear trail climbs, and one fast rocky downhill. All on my new Giant 27.5

    Technically yesterday, third ride in 3 days over the same terrain, the Luce is in good shape. Even the horse trails off the side are good, although yesterday they were a little wet/muddy since the temp was above freezing so most of the ride was on the easy.

    Amazing the difference a day and some hours makes, couldn't quite make it to Brown Road, but the SS did well enough.

    Sun and snow !

    Sure did. Weather has been dry and cold for a week here. Save a few steep and slippery sections that were un-ride able the conditions were outstanding. Added bonus was riding with my daughter

    Thanksgiving is the day of the big ride, this year marking the 40th Anniversary of the Appetite Seminar, an annual mountain bike ride that pre-dates the term "mountain bike." 750 people took part this year in cold, clear weather.

    The Pine Mountain Loop includes one of the best downhills in Marin County. I only see it once a year, because it's part of a pretty hard ride, so the idea is to make the most of it. I have a pair of construction knee pads, not really mountain bike gear, but I put them on at the top. First time I wore them on a ride, because I hardly ever crash.

    Halfway down, I hit a root or a rock with a pedal, which throws me on top of the bars, where I get to ride out of control another 100 feet while I contemplate what is about to happen. The possibilities seem endless.

    It happens.

    Spin cycle, a blur. I hear hard plastic hitting stuff. So much going on so fast that I can only wait until everything stops, ten feet off the trail out in the weeds. Takes me a while to untangle from the bike. Saddle is 90 degrees rotated, pointing to three o'clock. Handlebars are off center.

    I didn't feel too bad, considering that I had just hit the ground harder than any time I could remember in the last few years, but before jumping right up, I assessed the damage. Sometimes adrenaline masks an injury for a few seconds. Something should hurt pretty soon, where is it?

    The bike took a bigger beating than I did. It doesn't seem possible after the huge tumble, but I do not have a scratch or a bruise or a boo-boo of any kind on me. No torn clothing. My jersey and shorts and elbows aren't even dirty.

    The plastic cap on one knee pad is gouged. Apparently I only landed on protected parts. Next rider along sees me sorting out the bike, asks me if I'm okay. I say yeah, no problem.

    He says, you have a bunch of weeds sticking out of your helmet.

    I'll be 70 in two weeks.

    My friend Joe Breeze, who wrote the foreword for my book, showed up in the same 40 y.o. club jersey that I was wearing. I think both of us wear it once a year, on this ride.

    No riding today, still nursing a cracked rib from a couple of weeks ago, but I am counting down the days till' I get back on my bike. I intend to ride this week!

    Glad someone got some Lunch Loops in this Thanksgiving. I was in Junction and rode their last year on that holiday, but I was too sore for this one.

    It was DJ. 5k feet of climbing, took me a little longer than an hour, hike a bike section across some areas of the top, and some insane rutted out trails on the way down. It's called Black Mountain if you want to check it out. I rode two hours or more before that. The cross country bike wasn't cut out for that, but overall, it did great.

    I sure did - we were suppose to ride 16miles but 2 flat tires later, we only did 8. No complaints though, 8 is better than zero. - Luckily only my ridding bud had the flats, first front then back.

    Mid Sept 15 ride around Mt St Helens. I've done it once each of the last 2 years on my old 38lb 29er bike. That was my last ride since I bought and rode my new 31lb bike last weekend and today.
