    2022 Bike Season

    Starting this over with the correct date! With the current weather and forecast it is feeling like another earlier start to the mountain bike season here. (Feeling like 2 years in a row with this - global warming doing its thing perhaps?) Have not been out yet, but did get all the bikes in...

    Where does everyone ride?

    Looking for some input here everyone.... I've been to North Conway plenty, but mostly mid season. We are looking at taking a trip later this season (towards the end of March) and are thinking North Conway because the kids love the area. Since I typically gravitate to places like Killington...

    Tri's / Du's

    Anyone do on or off road Tri's or Duathlons during the offseason for excersize / fun / fitness? I did an off road duathon a few weeks ago (trail run, mt bike, trail run) which was a blast. Unfortunately there are not too many off road ones as compared to on road.
