    I'm all jacked up!

    The weather is starting to get decent and the days are getting longer. I'm gonna get out for my first after work rides of the year(non night ride). The temps are gonna be around 60F and I'll get about an hour and a half of good riding in on Tue and Wed. Yeeeeeeee Haw!!!!

    Same over here.... Been the coldest winter for like 100 years or something like that over here and even I wont venture out on my bike and thats rare, went street riding abit but no XC or anything.. Now its starting to warm up I cant wait to get out, my Saint front brake arrives tomorrow so Im going to put that on and go out and test it at the local trails.

    It's going to be -13C tonight with ~10 cm of snow on top of the 30-50 cm we got on the weekend. I'm going to cry myself to sleep with a bottle of wine...

    Girlscout get to go too? Or does he get to play with homework while you play with your bike?

    I was lucky last week - my schedule let me get in rides on Monday, Tues, Thurs, and Fri with two of those days in short sleeves...When all that was sandwiched in between my rides on Sunday and Saturday, it was a good riding week!

    For those that have that white stuff that keeps you from getting out there, I feel for you - I really do; I grew up in Buffalo. That's why I'm not going to miss this opportunity to hit these trails every chance I get - those chances end in June so I need to make the most of them.

    He stays in the after school program until my wife gets picks him up after work. With the bike club, he keeps my SS at school and rides during recess and after school so I'm not gonna worry about him.

    I just got in. I rode with Cane Creek/Specialized pro Joe Haley and got my butt kicked.I'm riding again with him on Wed,Its gonna be 70f and Ill ride on thur. as well it's gonna be 72F. Its really cool to ride with a great rider, we went through a nasty downhill and he was flowing and tricking his way through.I was hanging on for dear life just to see if I could keep up..... I didn't. It was a great ride!

    Sounds like fun man, it's been really nice here in the ol Fayettenam as well - hopefully I'll be able to get out on the road bike in a few weeks to enjoy some of the weather.

    I'll have scratch my singletrack itch vicariously through the forum and videos for a little longer...

    That patience is a virtue

    I won't know until the 15th when I get the MRI, but as the swelling goes down my range of motion is gradually improving.

    How is it you get to ride with these pros mtnbiker66? This has to be the 3rd time you've mentioned riding with someone like that?

    Lucky dog.

    Cane Creek is right up the road and the guy I rode with yesterday works there when he's not racing. He's roomates with my bud who's a pro. There are quite a few good racers that have come out of this area so you run into them at a trail head or LBS.
