Skeeters aren't bad. I was out there this weekend and only had a few buzzing me. Being in a drought does have some advantages.

Thanks Brad. See you at the trail.

Anyone riding tomorrow? After snapping my derailleur in half Monday at Burchfield, I'll be on a clunker. Should be fun nonetheless; I'll be out by 6.

I can't make it this week. The rain should really help and tonight might be some of the best conditions for the year.

Oh man, I was sooo excited. We got the head chef(okay, so only chef) at B & I bar to promise us Pork Chop Suey, not next Thursday, but the following Thursday(the 20th). It's great post ride grub when combined with a tall or pitcher of Killians, and oh so convenient. Unfortunately, I now realize that I'll be on vacation that week, so no soup for me. That doesn't mean y'all can't partake. Mark your calenders. Come one; come all. :-)

Great numbers out there today and some new faces. Nice to see. Oh, and the riding wasn't so bad either. Till next week...

Do you guys ride all of the log rides and stunts during the group rides? Back when I used to do the group rides at Burchfield I was so disappointed that everybody just bypassed all of the stunts and rock piles - I actually requested one time that we ride them. A few obliged, and many were forced to stand around and watch while their heartrates lowered ...

We don't session stuff, but a few of us run them within the flow of the ride. Even the newer drop line drops right back into the trail, making it easy to add without slowing the ride. Just gotta warn the newbs not to follow your line. A number of the newer riders, both here and Burchfield, like some techy stuff. It's gonna depend on the makeup of the group, but essentially it's 'one and done' and get on with the ride.

Will be there tonight. Going to take care of the log on the green (handsaw if possible) and get in a ride.

Kids soccer games are likely to keep me on the sidelines tonight, unless I go @ 4:00 or 7:00.

No good right now. Very icy and bumpy. I had to bail to the River Trail tonight.
