    I meant 'we' as in the real riders her in CT, not the ones dicking around spending more time walking up hills and riding roads back in the dark after getting lost than actually riding single track.

    You did say climbing mountains, not riding them

    Though are typical ride is pretty techy (if you ask me)
    I saw some of the stuff you're doing in the TR's and I think we're riding quite similar terrain, with the exception that we have a bit more sand and you have more rocks.

    And, yea, I get that you were just bustin my chops. I got noooooo problem with that! You'll get yours!

    BTW, SAND SUX!

    Instead of starting a new thread for lil o me, I'll add to this one.

    Our usual Wed night ride was just me and Kris again, so I asked if she'd help me with some skilz, like bunny hopping, and get the sand gremlins out of my head.

    We spent a bit of time, until I got it!!!
    Then we rode, rode hard, no pics, but tons of sweat!!!!!

    Thursday night we drove to Traverse City to do the VASA trail with Tom again. We did the 9 mile loop to beat sunset, and ripped out an average of a little over 9 mph. Well............Kris and Tom did that, while I set a pace of my own at 8.6 ish.
    My wrist was really sore and swollen from the bunny hop lessons but I didn't know it until we started to ride. The first bunny hop I tried to do on the trail nearly put me into orbit. OUCH!
    I think I stretched some connective tissues, errrrr, sumthin.

    Only a couple pics, sorry we were rippin so we didn't take much and I didn't fiddle with my camera settings so they're kinda fuzzy




    Thanks for readin!

    Oh heck no. I've been riding 5 years. VG for longer than that. This is the first year we've ridden together much. Its also the first year that I've really attempted obstacles.

    Well that explains that. I knew VG has been riding for a while, but for some reason I thought you really hadn't much before now. I was starting to think I was hopeless as far as speed goes. Makes a lot more sense now.

    Carrie, I wasn't doing the things you're doing, at the stage you're doing them.
    You will be kicking it up a notch in no time at all!!!
