    I'm having trouble getting rides in consistently due to weather and life in general, but I was able to get my 4th ride in Sunday morning, a healthy 15.9 miles. It felt like we climbed the entire time. I also did about 4 hours of trail work on Saturday, so I'm pretty beat today.

    Wahoo!!!!!! First ride for me last night. 6 miles and shoulder felt better as I rode. Nothing technical just double track stuff. Bunny hopped a small log, not the best idea with the shoulder. I will wait more on that. But it felt good.

    I'm up to 124 mountain bike miles in 11 rides so far this year. The weather has been so good that we started up our weekly group rides a month early, and the attendance has been really good. It may have been a crappy ski season, but MTB season is definitely off to a great start down here!

    +1. Been trying to get some consistent riding it. Got 30 miles in this weekend and I am itching for more. I really need to find a group to ride with.

    My road numbers are hella down but my trail miles (and smiles) are way, WAY up. The dirt is loamy and good, roots are dry, and there is not much water or muck.

    That being said, I took a massive digger into a mud hole on Saturday. My entire right side was covered and I was elbow deep in it. Lost my favorite gloves in the process.

    I was not loving life. Especially since I was trapped under my bike trying to get out.

    Speaking of bikes...I need to stop looking at trade mags. I am convinced I now need a + bike. I've all but convinced myself that I can sell my bronson and put the money toward something new. I've lost my mind. Seems like overkill, especially since I have a fatbike.

    I am also tempted by updating to a new bronson with a more slack head angle and shorter chain stay. Supposed to change the bike in a very positive way...But then there is the Evil Insurgent.

    10 mile ride yesterday. Still nothing technical. I doubt I will be able to anytime soon. Shoulder strength is not there for it let alone ROM. I did crash this week though. Slow speed and on the left side.
