The Art of Passing and Being Passed
Written by Scott Bixby   
Wednesday, 31 October 2012 18:00

I’ve been racing mountain bikes since 2003. Obviously, I’ve had to pass other racers and based on my general lack of speed, I’ve been passed many, many times. Unlike many other disciplines of bicycle racing, passing and being passed during a mountain bike race can be stressful, generally because of the nature of the course. Single track typically is only wide enough for one bicycle so here’s a few things to remember that will make the passing/being passed experience safer and less stressful.

With the 2013 race season starting just after the holidays with the 2nd annual Winterfest Race in late January, I thought some discussions about racing/riding would be nice since the weather is not cooperating for riding.  To start it off, slower_than_u has written an article about passing, which touches on general race etiquette.  I have also started a new topic in the forums HERE, where anyone can go in and post a comment or question.

10. Your co-workers are too exhausted to ride farther or faster than you when everyone finally puts down the shovels.

9.   You get to play with big trucks in the woods just like childhood.

8.   Running that wheelbarrow through the woods and a half-mile down the trail makes you very happy that you sit in an office every day.

Fall Riding Tips
Written by Sliders Guy   
Tuesday, 09 October 2012 00:00

This time of year the riding can be great but definitely has it's challenges. The leaves cover up the trail and make things slick. After a dry summer it may be time to change tires to something that grips and sheds mud. That sweet line you love may have mud and leaves covering it up so keep your eyes peeled and ride light and quick over potentially slick roots. Feet and hands can get cold quick especially if they get wet so dress appropriately. The dry creek beds have some water in them now so warmer shoes or covers could be the ticket to a comfy ride. A quick clip on rear fender can save your butt from wet and muddy spray.

Just a few tips to keep you riding through the cooler fall weeks.

Keep Pedaling,

Sliders Guy

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
