Fall is definately here.

Probably my favorite season out of the 4 to ride in. Love the smell of the air, the colors the trees get make pinning it through singletrack even more enjoyable. It's not too hot, not too cold. Weather is somewhat stable.

Try 6 months of winter, and 6 months of spring/fall with 2 weeks of summer...for weather (and my health but thats another story) this year sucked.

And this coming from a guy who likes riding in the rain with some good temp rainforest action.

What the hel lare you guys talking about...... it's Spring now, you guys must be in some weird land where up is down and it rains from the ground or something.

Weather has been great for riding here, 17 celsius and cloud is awsome but we had a huge downpour at a race last weekend. 14 celsius and rain don't go well on a freshly built super steep one off track (Forrestry SA only gave persmission for the track to be built and used for this weekend).

You haven't lived until you've raced on a dark dead end road during a snow/ice storm after drinking heavily on New Year's Eve. But aside from that, I agree, I could do without the winter.

Fall has always been my favorite time of the year.

I'm flying up to Maryland in two weeks and I can wait to enjoy the fallness of the northeast for a week.

Winters in Texas are not that bad
