    Traitorous Thoughts

    Is it wrong that I'm already thinking fondly of the MTB season?



    It's been on my mind a lot over the last few days... Don't get me wrong, I don't want ski season to be over. But I'm looking forward to getting back on the bike, something that dropped off drastically too early in the season last year.

    i have been thinking of it lately. but i look at my bike every time i go into the basement to get fire wood. i also get a reminder when i go into my workshop. the single speed i am building is sitting on the workbench.

    unfortunately i will get a later start than most due to coaching.

    This is actually the first year in a LOOOOONG time where I've taken any time off of the bike. Ski conditions have just been too good! I'll probably head out on a night ride tomorrow night, as it sounds like we're going to get some rain then a freeze. I am hoping there's enough crust to ride on top, man is that a fun time. The woods become a huge skateboard park.

    ...because I probably won't even get to ski until Saturday anyway. I have a lot of time to think about other pursuits since I only have the time to ski about once a week lately.

    I've been thinking about it lately too. Maybe because I've been unhappy with my skiing progress thus far this season...

    I've been thinking about it from time to time. Not in a missing it kind of way, but rather just looking forwad to having something fun to do after ski season is done. But I have no intention of hopping on the bike for another 3 months. Although I might squeak some rides in before I'm done skiing if the trails dry out enough here.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    ..not the only one..

    Have to agree with severine,
    I am longing for the springtime paddling in the narrow brooks/streams and ponds, along with MTBing and plain old hiking..however the skin/boot up terrain outside the resorts is unending up here. A lot of lesser vertical, but pack your lunch and backpack stove...and it can be worth it. But more fresh stuff coming....all the mtns/hills/woods are doable...

    I'm reminded of it every time I walk into my family room, have a new helmet and shoes still sitting in the corner that I need to bring to the basement.

    Can't wait to ride in the spring.;bikesmilie;
