LOVE the trails!! I Do it for to get outdoors, for the Fun, the Exercise, and just plain Recreation,.. I keep track of my times & milage, but only for the calorie count! ;-) I only compete against myself.
You'll Never catch me doin' that "Hardcore shit" I see 'em doin out in Moab or off those raised platforms they use in the PNW! It looks like a lot of fun, but at 51,.. I don't bounce like I used to!
Didn't get to do as much this year as the last two,.. Mixie was right. It's depressing as hell how "Fast" that conditioning disappears!! :-(
Toecutter,... You ever hit Island Lake Rec Area's trails? They're pretty good, 6-9- or 15 mi. (combined) Pretty nice scenery and some good ups & downs! Although I hear "Pot" is supposed to have some REALLY killer climbs, doesn't it?
I ride an REI brand Novara 29'r. About $800 new in '10. Rode the $2500 Trek superfly AL pro at the demo days last spring! LOVED it!! Gonna try to afford it next spring!
See ya on the hills!
You're only Young Once,.. but you can be Immature FOREVER!!!!
) days out!
