    Cory - once Nass dries out, I'll take you for an easy cruise. I haven't been on my bike since early August. Or was it July? Can't remember. Either way, I'll need to start out slow and easy. The Burlington (Nass) trail heads are probably 20 minutes for you. You seem like a stuntry kinda guy. If you decide to go that route, Nepaug will be like 6 or 7 minutes for you.

    Hey - need a bike rack? I have a Thule 3-bike (trunk style) I could sell you. It's like this:

    $60 and it's yours.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    It's not going anywhere so no rush. Lemme know if/when you're ready. It's used, but still functional and decent. I think I might be missing a cradle or stabilizer, or both, but it's ready for 2 bikes at least....

    No need for a full face helmet just yet. Those things really suck for anything other than full on DH / FR type stuff with very little actual pedaling. I would also recommend not doing anything too crazy / big on your new-to-you ride. It's a lower end XC rig and not meant for it's wheels to leave the ground too often.
