I'm having trouble getting rides in consistently due to weather and life in general, but I was able to get my 4th ride in Sunday morning, a healthy 15.9 miles. It felt like we climbed the entire time. I also did about 4 hours of trail work on Saturday, so I'm pretty beat today.

Wahoo!!!!!! First ride for me last night. 6 miles and shoulder felt better as I rode. Nothing technical just double track stuff. Bunny hopped a small log, not the best idea with the shoulder. I will wait more on that. But it felt good.

I'm up to 124 mountain bike miles in 11 rides so far this year. The weather has been so good that we started up our weekly group rides a month early, and the attendance has been really good. It may have been a crappy ski season, but MTB season is definitely off to a great start down here!

+1. Been trying to get some consistent riding it. Got 30 miles in this weekend and I am itching for more. I really need to find a group to ride with.

My road numbers are hella down but my trail miles (and smiles) are way, WAY up. The dirt is loamy and good, roots are dry, and there is not much water or muck.

That being said, I took a massive digger into a mud hole on Saturday. My entire right side was covered and I was elbow deep in it. Lost my favorite gloves in the process.

That doesn't sound like fun!

I was not loving life. Especially since I was trapped under my bike trying to get out.

Speaking of bikes...I need to stop looking at trade mags. I am convinced I now need a + bike. I've all but convinced myself that I can sell my bronson and put the money toward something new. I've lost my mind. Seems like overkill, especially since I have a fatbike.

I am also tempted by updating to a new bronson with a more slack head angle and shorter chain stay. Supposed to change the bike in a very positive way...But then there is the Evil Insurgent.

10 mile ride yesterday. Still nothing technical. I doubt I will be able to anytime soon. Shoulder strength is not there for it let alone ROM. I did crash this week though. Slow speed and on the left side.

There's always something newer and "better" to drool over! The + bikes have been piquing my interest as well...

I'm going to break 1000 kms this week, the majority which has been on single track.

I love living a 10 minute bike ride away from 10 miles of prime single track. Unfortunately it's all uphill.

Distance 4,316.5 km ~ 2682 miles
Time 373h 58m
Elev Gain 56,579 m ~ 185626 feet
Rides 353

Strava is neat. I'm not sure of the breakdown, the vast majority of my mileage is split between single track mountain biking and multi use walking trails. I put about 600 kms (372 miles) on my road bike, the rest would be on a mix of mountain bikes ranging from my rigid 1996 Kona to my 2017 Trek Farley (fat bike)

2017 Recap

886 miles (All dirt except 53 miles),
128 hours in the saddle,
65,040 Vertical feet
80 rides

Didn't meet my goal of 1000 miles, however not bad considering a torn meniscus, and broken frame.
