I just can't seem to get the woods out of my mind, and have been spending much more time riding the trails in my back yard. It's just impossible not to smile when playing out among the trees. If I'm not careful my roads bikes (3) will start to figure out that I'm riding a different breed bike.

Not crazy at all, but not everyone has lovely, smooth, flat wooded trails to ride on. Your are lucky! Just park your bike in a different area of the garage - road bikes are arrogant and probably won't notice anything.

I love getting on the trails sometimes. This time of year when it looks like I might be dodging T-storms, I hit the trails because I"m always much closer to shelter if I need it. Have fun out there.
