    I'm up to 135 MTB miles so far this year.

    This past weekend was good. We had a Scott bike demo on Saturday which had a great turnout, including BackLoafRiver, who came all the way from Maine to Connecticut. I put in 13 miles in 3 different loops (had to keep to shortish rides so that the demos weren't out for too long). Everyone seemed to have fun, and it was a great showcase for our trail system. A post ride BBQ didn't hurt either!

    Yesterday I finally got my son back out for his second ride of the year. He did great on 3.3 miles over some rocky terrain. Now I just need to get my daughter back out there!

    Got out for a brief 10 or so miler today. It didn't suck. Here are 2 crappy phone photos:

    Saturday may have been a season highlight for me. First, HUGE thanks to BVibert and Woodcore (plus others) for showing me around. To quote a dear friend of mine, it was "some of the most fun you can have with your clothes on". Nass is super fun...it has a bit of everything. There was so much flow I couldn't get over it. The trail builders are doing some incredible stuff. It is such a stark contrast to what I am riding in Maine. A lot of it, I guess, has to do with the vastness of the network. I rode 15 miles and according to reports, that isn't even scratching the surface.

    I now have to book a several day trip to the area so I can see more. Props to you guys for all you have done down there. Miller time was KT worthy. That one berm...sweet lord. I probably could have lapped it all day. Each of the three times I rode it I noticed my speed getting faster and was more comfortable. Such good stuff. The post-ride hang was great.

    Both pics are from the fox trail at Bradbury. The out-of-focus pic is fox west. The swamp bridge is Fox East. I try and end every ride with East. As close to flow as I will get there.

    That being said, I got a quick ride in yesterday. I decided to slice off a piece of humble pie and attempt the "O" trail once again. And, once again, I left defeated. That trail is bi-polar. It goes from really well defined and smooth to hell in a single turn. The trail has little elevation...practically none. But, it does have tech. Roots, rocks, more roots, more rocks and, wait a minute...more roots. I only rode 1.5 miles of the 3+ and I couldn't get off fast enough. I couldn't maintain a steady line at all. Ass-kick o'clock.

    I am not sure what my current mileage is but, the quality of those miles has been stellar.

    Had I known about this I would have made the trip, been to long since I last ride Nass.

    Saturday I did a very hard 9 miles at Batchelor street, still getting used to the 1x10 drive train and that place is always good for a but kicking. Sunday I did 35ish miles on the road and tried to get some good climbs in to get ready for a big charity ride I am doing in August . If you asked me after the ride I would have sworn I did well over 2000 feet of climbing....according to starve is was only 1600

    You need to get on Facebook for all the rides. Bvibert is hosting a children ride Sunday if your free. Then again it looks like he broke his bike again tonight.

    I would rather miss out than join FaceBook.
