I forgot what it was like to ride with people. I am generally a loner and / or I tend to ride with people I coach. Today I rode with two buds who were new but in the same breath had the balls to push themselves. We all sucked uphill (seriously, I am BAD uphill, I am suck a sprinter) but we had such a good time. I have been feeling lackluster with my riding this year and this may have put me in the groove...I was riding up stuff I couldn't ride up before and was flowing downhill on my hardtail like it was no tommorow.
Sorry just excited I finally found that groove...and without even hitting the mountain.
