    Finished out the season at 315.3 miles. Far less than I had expected, but still had a good season and I was ahead of last year. I'll shoot for 400 next year.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    Great ride this morning. We got about 2-3" of snow the other day and its still around in places on the trails. Most of the slick rock was melted off...especially on the southern and western facing sides...but we didn't do the 2 really big rollers.

    I broke out these booties for the first time that I picked up at Performance... http://www.performancebike.com/bikes...00_20000_66001.

    They are still on sale just $19. Neoprene shell with a fleeced liner, zippers at the heels. You do need to order 2 sizes larger as they are tight otherwise. I wear a 10.5 and ordered a 12. Best thing is that they have a hard rubber sole...(it comes with cut-outs depending on what kind of cleat/pedal system you use). So, on days when there is snow on the ground its great...as all of the other booties I've had/seen only have a neoprene strap on the sole which would obviously get ripped up.

    awesome...congrats on the 1,000+ !!!



    i ended up at 60 rides / 620 mi for the year - about 330 singletrack and the rest road / canal path / rail trail. a little more of that stuff due to the soggy weather. highlight of the year was probably doing first lift assisited at blue. looking forward to more of that and more riding with my son next year.
