My first thought was 500 miles, but I think that would have been too easy of a goal.
    Kind of off to a slow start, but I think most of my rides this year are going to be 6+, even if I only have a short time window so maybe it's still doable. I seem to be riding faster already with less and shorter breaks.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    No Y membership anymore and I still haven't gotten out on the bike yet. Sigh. Soon, I hope.

    The trails are so dry down here that the small bit of rain we've been getting has done nothing more than keep the dust down. Virtually no mud. Saturday seemed like a good day to ride and yesterday morning was cool, cloudy and dry. Perfect! Could be a lot worse.

    My 2009 goal- ride a fair bit and not hurt myself.
    Making sanity obsolete since 1982...

    Down here in NJ it hasn't stopped raining except for a few hours Saturday since Friday morning and it poured yesterday and it's coming down pretty good right now too. The rest of the week looks like sh*t also except for Wednesday, but that could change too! I'm hoping for a summer drought!

    Hey Reno, not sure where in NJ you are, but I rode Lewis Morris on Saturday, and the trails there were very dry, with only a few wet spots, which were mostly easy to get around. LM drians very quick.

    I'll be back there either Wed or Thurs after work. Not sure exactly when though.

    So far I'm 0 for 3... Well I guess I've ridden more this Spring than last, but it seems like it's off to a slow start. I haven't 'launched' anything, nor have I even attempted a wheelie drop...

    The season is still young though. I have plenty of time to work on it. I also want to build up my endurance so I can ride longer at a more consistent speed with fewer breaks.

    Never been to Lewis Morris. I live in Hamilton just outside of Trenton so I'm probably a little over an hour from there? I'll have to check that out sometime. How are the trails there?
