    This is a bit late since I didn't use the computer over spring break last week, but I rode the forest roads of Davy Crockett National Forest on St. Paddy's Day. It was a nice slow relaxing ride in fantastic weather and decent scenery.

    Ha ha very true. Actually I was hoping you were some kind of an expert and were going to tell me that the new 10 speed was going to be made of a new alloy and the snapping chain days are over but no such luck...

    About an hour of ride/playing around on the bike vs. about two of trail work.

    Little duct tape on the inside, some super glue on the outside, it's all good.

    Or, sew up the hole with some dental floss. No, really. Then still stick a bit of duct tape inside as an internal boot. I've done that a few times with some pretty big tears, when the budget was really strapped, or when someplace that getting a new tire quickly wasn't an option. Actually works quite well.

    All depends on how dirtbaggy you want to be about it/your budget.

    Threw my GPS in my bag on the way to work this morning just out of curiosity (yeah I know it's not mountain riding - but hey - it's the same bike). It's 0.4 miles at an average speed of just over 10 mph. I do that four times every work day, so about eight miles a week commuting + whatever I get to do recreationally (not much).

    Some good east-coast terrain! One un-critical tip - if you track/pan the camera along with the rider in the last shot when you shoot he will come out in a bit better focus

    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I snuck out of work early on Reflecto-Bike and hammered out to Riverside State Park to practice the 24-hour course with a teammate. Trail conditions were good, and we got just a very light sprinkle of rain at one point. Then I cruised home and stuffed my face guilt-free So that was 2.5-3 hours or so.

    Just got back from doing some urban stuff with a friend. He gathered a crowd and was kinda forced into doing this. Each stair made the seat hit him.. well.. yeah.


    FINALLY will be hitting the trails wednesday.

    Nevermind. My mom won't let me go to the trails. There are most likely perverts hiding in the woods on weekdays she says. I haven't done any real mountain biking since november. I can't wait to be 18.

    yes. obviously, perverts never hang around urban, populated areas.

    Yeah man. He was on a rockhopper with a 4 inch travel fox too. Almost went over the bars at the landing in the middle.

    Ah okay, thanks for clarifying

    I got in some good trail miles today, first on the new bike. I LOVE it. Handles more like a cross country bike, lighter, looks better, it's just great. 11 miles biking there, 11 back. Plus whatever in the mud. I got dirty. So did the bike, obviously. Then I had to go to work and am exhausted. Couple pics of the carnage to come.

    Pre ride food, Five Guys. Pure awesome:


    At the park, muddy. Note the broken seat. I took one of the berms to wide and went up on the side. Don't know what happened but I went OTB and landed on the seat, bent the rail. Shame, it's comfy.

    Temporary rear brake, elixer on the way.

    It was muddy.

    After work, I rode out to Riverside State Park on Reflecto-Bike to meet up with the Tuesday-night ride. We headed downriver towards Deep Creek and Nine-Mile, including Sharp Stick and then coming back via Devil's Down (turns out it's Wal-Mart volunteers who've been molesting DD, folks).

    I had a couple panniers and a trunk bag along tonight, so it made my "zero-inch" bike a bit of a chore on Sharp Stick, but I was cleaning stuff really well tonight for some reason Got home around 10:15PM, so that was a four-hour excursion.
