    I got out for a nice long MTB ride on Sunday morning. I was out for a bit over 2 hours. Unfortunately the trails are still pretty wet and soft in spots at my local haunt. It was chilly in the morning but I managed to get the blood flowing pretty quick and had a really good time. It was my first time riding clipless and I didn't fall or anything so that was good too

    Another nice day on the bike in the woods this morning before work. Was in there for 70 minutes non-stop. Still riding my buddy's back up hardtail as my rear shock is being rebuilt and factory tuned by PUSH. Should have it back tomorrow. I'm psyched to get back up on the charriott.

    Went for a 1h30m ride in Mianus today... sweet stuff, found some new jumps, did some old onone with more confidence... hit all my good lines and did most of the good stuff!!

    Very good ride, made my day much better.

    went for a 2 hour ride in Rye, NY (well through harrison and port chester too). Def some very nice rides in the area. I am excited to get up to Vassar and Westpoint tomorrow for some nice rides
    I'm at home and at ease on a track that I know not,
    And restless and lost on a road that I know.

    Go big Goblin....I ride out in that area and then further up north and west. Good riding up in the West Point area too. Hilly.

    Got out today for about 10 minutes before I destroyed the rear derailleur on my buddy's backup bike. It had been shifting pretty bad the last few days anyway. C'est la vie.

    More importantly, my rear shock should be at home when I get there tonight from PUSH, after getting it factory tuned and rebuilt!

    Evening Update:

    Was able to cut out of the office a bit early and got home and still no Shock..but then, as I was changing....the FedEx truck pulls in. Got out for 90 minutes of sweet riding in awesome weather...Wow, felt so nice. Like a plush hardtail. So tight and firm when pedaling yet so plush when needed....I do think it feels better than it did new from Fox.

    Got out for about an hour this morning before work in the local woods. Had rained during the night so ground was a bit wet..but stopped when we headed out. Started up again a bit, but now with the leaves out in full bloom..there is a great canopy out there..kept us and the trails pretty dry.
