He was a little slower than me, a little older (60) riding a hardtail GT but I give the dude props for crashing a few times! I hope I am able to crash when I'm 60 , get up and shake it off! I wiped out big time on Rain trail when I hit the outside of a turn and washed out in the loose stuff- it looked like a small berm until I hit it. :shock: You could see the smoke from the crash for miles! :D
I am sore and stiff today!

Cool, That means I hopefully have a couple years of riding left. Like to meet that chap.

What are the advantages of riding a mountain bike anyway?
Staying at home, lying on the couch is much more comfortable

I rode 27 miles at the big E today! Trails were in great shape with occasional mudholes where you would expect. Rain trail reroute was good and Rocky's run is a great addition! There are plenty of small branches to slap you in the face and deposit caterpillers on you. I got a little confused on the Race course coming down through Tannenbaum area- some mud, trees down and it some green arrows pointing in different directions? I was pretty tired and in back to car mode, but it seemed kinda screwed up. :?

It is a bit damp, but not terrible. Trails are not drying as fast due to the canopy effect.

Rocky's Run. Bypasses wet section of Anderson Blvd.

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.
