Here's my chance to beat you. ;) I keep looking at my mud-encrusted bike wondering if I'll get out for a few more rips. Maybe this weekend.

You better get a few more rides in if you hope to come close to my total. ;)

Riding has been great lately....lots o' leaves...but now with it being dry for a few days...its pretty safe to let 'em rip again.

Got out Tues, Thrusday and Friday this week...(with Sat and Sunday rides planned) and that was after, Mon, thurs, fri, sat and sunday last week. It's awesome now since last weekend and turning the clocks back...its light again in the morning. It wasn't light out last week until about 7:15 or so.

Starting to get back out. Knee is still a little stiff. It'll be another month probably before I can do a century. Been out on the MTB a couple times, making sure to avoid that rock that put the hole in my knee. Lotta freakin leaves. But I'm loving riding the MTB. Forgot how much fun it was with all the miles I racked up on my road bike this summer.

Great regular ride in the local woods yesterday. Tons of leaves but the trails are in great shape. They have some girl scouts out there today working on some of them...(not really the good single tracks though).

Today had an awesome 30 mile road ride. Just a glorious afternoon weather wise. A few extra hills probably put us over 2000' of climbing. Looking forward to getting back out in the woods tomorrow morning before work!

Great ride this morning. We got about 2-3" of snow the other day and its still around in places on the trails. Most of the slick rock was melted off...especially on the southern and western facing sides...but we didn't do the 2 really big rollers.

I broke out these booties for the first time that I picked up at Performance... http://www.performancebike.com/bikes/Product_10052_10551_1018749_-1_66000_20000_66001.

They are still on sale just $19. Neoprene shell with a fleeced liner, zippers at the heels. You do need to order 2 sizes larger as they are tight otherwise. I wear a 10.5 and ordered a 12. Best thing is that they have a hard rubber sole...(it comes with cut-outs depending on what kind of cleat/pedal system you use). So, on days when there is snow on the ground its great...as all of the other booties I've had/seen only have a neoprene strap on the sole which would obviously get ripped up.

awesome...congrats on the 1,000+ !!!

i ended up at 60 rides / 620 mi for the year - about 330 singletrack and the rest road / canal path / rail trail. a little more of that stuff due to the soggy weather. highlight of the year was probably doing first lift assisited at blue. looking forward to more of that and more riding with my son next year.
