    Today they opened up a connector trail to a state park adjacent to my usual trails, so I went out with my mom & stepdad to go for an inauguration ride. It's 3.25 miles one way & we combined it with our normal 8 mile loop (but we cut out a 2 mile section of that loop), so it came out to around 12.5 miles--a significant increase for the company I brought along.

    The trail was wide enough to probably not constitute as single track & was really smooth & fast one way with the exception of a few rock gardens, but MAN were there some climbs on the way back. One of them took me 5 tries to get before I was able to pedal to the top, just ridiculously steep. Good fun though, really good ride.

    The weather was absolutely perfect, 75* all day. Loving this cold front. And now it's time to sit by the pool & drink beer. Living the life.

    this makes the third trail trip i've basically ever ridden... on as many bikes. learned my bike is way too big for me, but whatever, i'll ride it until i can save up for a dual sus xc/enduro type frame.

    rode the tapeworm and the third or fourth time i felt like i had expanded my tech skills four-fold. great day, not too soggy and just tons of flow on some of the trails there. basically kept up with the rest of the group, and enjoyed it though i had a tough time controlling the frame. got going close to limit a few times so that's good, only way to learn right?

    Looks refreshing right about now


    Went up for days...


    It's all downhill from here...


    ...but what's this? I've seen this crap too many times!
    Man, I need double-ply tires on everything. (Patched it w/ClifBar wrapper: folded & duct taped for support over top a radial tire patch glued over the tear.)



    Mine #1


    I didn't sign up for this.


    Mine #2


    Mine #3

    Patch = successful.
    Made it back w/out a flat!

    Two days at Bootleg Canyon. DANG, that place always has to leave a mark or two. Wish I had good scenery to post. Must take a road trip.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Spent the last (most of) week in Nashville, sucking in some good local eats and sights, while trying tostay as far away from the downtown core and the CMA week tourist crap hell. Back home, return to the usual routine.

    This particular one is not intended for bikes whatsoever. It's fun as hell. If you're nto comfortable getting your trials on, you'll hate it. Started raining on me today. A very nice counterpoint for some of the faster bits in this trail spot.

    We gots all the chunky trialsy stuff you are missing. Some days I'd kill to trade it for some baby ass smoth hauling mach ******** descending though.

    Oops, haven't posted in while. Anyway, I got a new water pack! Nothing fancy, as it was on sale for $10 and from the hunting section, but it has zippered pockets, a bigger bladder, and is at least twice as spacious as my old one. Also had my first ride with bar ends, and I liked 'em. And I can't believe how many rabbits I've seen so far this summer!

    A buddy from WY is out for some in-law action for a week. Lent him a bike, got him out for a ride yesterday. Another day or two he'll be able to hook up for a spin before heading home.

    He's digging the east coast rawks.


    From today.


    New line here. Old line goes down the left side of this spine, about a 10' mellow roll. This one goes right down the spine and off. A bike length off the bottom, then a 4-ish' drop. Not much time or room to line it all up, and a sniper landing spot. I dig that kinda' ****.

    A Few pictures from a recent ride up Cadair Idris in Wales, UK. (Putting the mountain into mountain biking)
    Starting off with an easy water crossing
    bike1.jpg

    That, after some easy double track brings you to some nice, fast singletrack. (fast on the way down)
    bike2.jpg
    That takes you on to a stepped pony path which is tough to ride as you try and look at the views.
    bike3.jpg
    And then onto some pea gravel that at times has you wishing u'd stayed in bed.
    bike4.jpg
    Before the mountain starts to really test your metal
    bike5.jpg
    It's worth the effort for the view
    bike6.jpg
    You can rest at the top and admire the view.
    bike7.jpg
    Finished gazing at the world? Now turn around, turn off the lockout and hang on for the descent down the path you came up
    bike8.jpg

    Great ride and the weather held out. The 29er handled the terrain great, although it has a few war wounds because of the rocks. Walkers thought I was nuts.

    Perhaps a little...

    Up to two bikes with non-working brakes. I think this one just needs the cables replaced though, so this one will get fixed first.

    Been feelin' explore-ish lately, been going down some different paths. Some other spots on my path have gotten more sandy & uneven too, so I tossed on some knobbier tires. It's hot, but usually there's a little breeze that keeps it tolerable. Today I had a breeze and rainclouds (but no rain, boo!). Animals spotted today: 3 jackrabbits & a roadrunner.
