    You're not riding hard enough if...

    You can hear your freehub...

    You don't wipe out now and then...

    Some local BF.net'er says so...

    :
    I seriously agree with this. Though it has more to do with improving your technical skills.

    I would add if you don't have to wipe DOWN after, you probably aren't riding hard enough.

    Little mud, little blood.

    My lap this morning was 5.1 miles, rolling single track, 8:30 am @ 29 degrees. My average HR was 170 with a high of 186

    I was toast after one lap. Bested my best time of 42.58m

    Record is 25 min.
