    Who had a really good ride today?

    I managed to get in about 12 runs in today. Felt good to get back on the bike after 2 days of resting. Today had to have been oneof my best rides of the year, it just felt great. Needed two days of rest I guess. It was one of those days where no matter what I pulled went well. Was manualling sections like it was childs play.

    I had a good ride yesterday, nice long road ride, no unforseen obstacles and nobody in an SUV(or car for that matter) tried to run me over.

    I'v been banned from riding for a week now since I had my wisdom teeth pulled. I'll be ready to go next sunday!

    What mountain was this at? I thought all of the Northeastern montians were closed for biking by now.

    Not at any of the mountains, there are places that are hilly enough to do shuttle runs. Without mountains that need to get ready for skiing season.

    I just found the don trails. Saw some pretty cool stuff that I didn't dare take on. Didn't know where the trail was going to end and how I would come back so I tracked back.

    The dondirt jumps, I believe are in trespassing poreperty so I decided not to go. It's too bad that the don trails are like 8 km away.

    Not me because my rear shock is getting rebuilt. They've had it two and a half weeks and I still haven't got it back

    Between the snow and the rain I haven't felt like riding. Been trying to build my transition, but really just getting ready for the snow season.

    after watching Drop In it made me feel like riding REAL bad so even tho it was snowing and raining at the same time here, i took out my bike (I already put it away for the season) and went riding.
    That ride i was pulling things so smooth and effortless i just couldnt wipe a smile off my face... i dunno sometimes I have such a good day of riding where every things comes easy and effortless and it truly is fun...now theres snow on the ground and its -7 degrees celcius out...brrrrr...
    I like riding bikes :)

    I live in an area (if you're local to Baltimore, the BWI airport loop...about 10 miles) where there is a nice, paved route around a local airport specifically for biking, rollerblading, etc. Always like to take my road bike around it and time myself, weather was crisp and *perfect*; I cranked!

    Have a good relationship with my LBS and he knows I'm soon in the market for a mountain bike so he let me test-ride a C-Dale Scalpel! There isn't any real offroad terrain on this loop but a couple of places where there are fields with shallow ditches and ruts...so I had a ball! Not to the point that I was abusing a bike that didn't belong to me, but enough to feel what a good, full-suspension cross-country set-up feels like. Scalpel is a nice ride.

    Had a good ride this morning,took out a group of mid.school kids. Not hard for me but the first time on sngl trk for most. Later went to Pisgah for a good ride w/ some friends. It was great until on a fast section of downhill my son had a grip come off. Now it looks like he's been in a trainwreck.Lesson to kids, tell someone if your grips are coming loose!!!! Never Ever ride w/ loose grips.

    Go for lock on grips. If you could see my sons leg, chest,back and ankle you would change them now. He had it pinned in a left hand sweeper and the grip just came off,all this at a high rate of speed. He and his 30lb Haro did the tango across some rocks and through the woods.He's O.K but the running joke at the LBS is about thse new breakaway grips.LOL

    Good rides yesterday and today...a friend and I both got our new bikes (Banshee Chapparal and Enduro Pro, respectively) up and rolling and spent the weekend playing around getting things dialed. Dug deep in the parts bins and built up a hardtail (Trek Bruiser) for another friend who was tired of trying to keep up with us on his 24" cruiser.

    Good times.

    Yeah, it's a beauty. Super solid. Top tube is a little short for my preferences, but I could get used to it. I'm (almost) second guessing my decision to get the SX Trail.

    The chapparal comes in a number of sizes, there is likely a tt for you. I know the xl fit me great for a xc type bike and the L fit nicely for fr purposes.

    any day that I ride is a good day. I ate dirt and bark yesterday but it was a good ride.I hit all the trails in Pocahontas on a new bike so that made it a better day

    I am a newb at riding but today was great...well until....

    The wife and I just bought bikes from a our LBS last weekend and today was the first real day to hit some of the trails and firebreaks behind our house (several miles of them).

    It was GREAT....enjoying the trails with the woman of my dreams.

    UNTIL....she bit it hard coming down a steep hill with ruts. Then, after she gets up and brushes herself off, a short time later my day comes to an end because of a THORN.

    Yup...and thorn. A tiny, tiny, hard as a nail thorn.

    It punctured my tire with a hole just big enough to deflate the tire.

    Being a newbie of course I did not have a tire patch kit or another tube. So it was push, push, push for about 2.5 miles.

    Needless to say a quick trip to the LBS to get a tire kit and tube and I will be out there tomorrow!

    You need to sit out for more than 2 days, knee injuries can get worse if rode on while not fully healed. Sit out for a week, then see how it feels, if it still hurts after that go see a doctor if not go tomorrow to see one.
