Does anyone else look forward to leaf off for riding in the woods. The downside of course is that the trail is sometimes harder to read and the leaves can create some slick spots but I love being able to see off the ridge lines into the valleys. I also find myself stopping a bit more to check out waterfalls and other scenery.
From the sport aspect when yo really want to kick it on the trail you have more visibility and I become less timid. Just cheering a bit for the season!
