Agreed. Was still pretty muddy on Tuesday, but was great to be back up there.
This is my first time having a season pass, but I will also be away for at least six weeks of the season… So I have to get my laps in while I can.
Definitely wasn’t ideal conditions to be riding with Bontrager XR2s on the bike, but I made it work.
Looks interesting. I’ve recently (ie. today) become interested in this idea of overnight rides. So I decided to do one this coming Friday.
I find it hard to plan time for the longer rides in between other ‘bigger’ travel plans, but a single day or two is much easier.

Come prepared at 7 with whatever you need for the après (beer, etc.), as there is no easy access to anything from the location.
Wasn’t there a new bike thread around here somewhere? Couldn’t find it…
Anyways, no new mountain bike for me this year (although I did buy a Kona Unit in the fall), but I did just finish building up my new commuter.

I’ve ridden it for a couple days so far, and it’s great. A worthy replacement and…[Read more]
