I know you were out there today, so come on, tell us about it, and post pics if you got 'em. Even people who didn't have a holiday can post.
This was my first real ride in quite a while, so I was kinda excited but planned on taking it slow. Weather was perfect. That didn't work out. I headed out to Portland's Forest Park and started out with a very steep climb on dirt singletrack. It quickly turned into a long slope of roots and logs with the in betweens too steep to get traction. Turns out I was on a hikers only trail...oops.
After that it was a solid hour of dirt and course rock doubletrack. The ground was just moist enough to still be firm, but force you to accelerate, even on gentle climbs. I tore through it until I hit the end of my endurance, not to far from the trailhead. Then a leisurely ride 2 miles back to U of P. It was a great ride.
