I've got a confession...

I've got a confession... I have recently forgotten about my love affair w/ mtn biking. After being introduced to it while living in FLA (swamp biking actually) 15yrs ago, I have noticed that I have stopped looking at the mtn bike sections of catalogs and magazines lustfully as I once had. I blame this loss of desire squarely on the shoulders of a workmate who invited me to ride a metric in the Tenn. mountains. 62 miles! The longest mtn bike ride that I had done was 36m and I was spent. After being convinced that I could hang w/ them (they would wait on my slow butt if needed & loaned me an "extra" sweet cannondale road bike to try this ride with) I decide to give it a try. After all I could grab the sag wagon back if I was reeling. WOW! that was a blast, beautiful scenery and what a sense of accomplishment.

I now try to get in 40-60m every weekend that I can spare and weeknight rides of 10-15m around my homebase of Woodstock,GA (northern burb of Atlanta).

Yeah, my love affair has converted to ROADIE mentality.

Well, Thats me. Looking forward to the evenings ride.

Hmmm... those are pretty short rides. I think the length of the block I live on is longer than that.

Khuon,

You think 2Boxers might, in reality, be A. Troll?
