On sunday I was on eagle lift and looked into woods. Saw sign that says "race loop" and thoughts of summer mtb'ng dashed through my mind.

No Goal, Wide Right, I'll just go ride my bike

We are still burried, absolutely burried. Think Spring.

I think the trails may be closed as they are under 6 feet of snow. Maybe Joe C. will get his leaf blower out and clean them up.

some thoughts, some musings, sorry it be long
from my ride today.
certainly worth burning a personal day for a ride, weather couldn't have been better,

parked at CCC, Billygoat, (fricken crap man) I'm a wimp, think I walked about 60% up . went pale ale, then went for rim trail, but stupid me, thought the trail leading into the large rocks ( right off of hungry hollow)was it, spent some time trying to find way out.

once on rim trail, wonderful. enjoyed the flow and the views, cudos to all who had a hand in it. then went bent rim ( how about having a coupon for either new derailer hanger, or new rim, riders choice) I guess who ever laid it out just tied a string to one of the many chipmunks, and then flagged where ever he went, I did enjoy it, but I doubt with my skill I will ever be able to ride that without putting feet on the ground.

one hint, coming out of bent rim, on to salamanca forest road, put a sign saying go left, I of course went right and found myself way the heck away from where I wanted to be. thanks to the logger who told me to turn around.

leaf coverage was significant, but even this being my first ride, I didn't lose the trail, well except that rock area, where there was no trail. back at ccc bumped into a kind FLT trail maintainer, very cheerful, gave him a lift back to rock city, the trails were dry and fine,

tomorrow looks great, don't know about that rain coming later though,

Was out there yesterday all day, did about 16 miles. Trails are still visible but you need to ride with cautiion because of the leaf coverage. I rode FLT, Pale Ale, Bent Rim, Billy Goat, Mutton Hollow.

Weather looks pretty lousy for this weekend, should get out tomorrow or Friday.

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

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.
