Cool pics, it's nice to have something other than Nassahegan posts in here for once.
So, how was the new bike?
Looks like some interesting riding there.
So does the riding look good enough for you to make a trip up here. *nudge*nudge*
Or like CT. Austin is there any single track out there or is it mostly rocky?
Some of those drops look a bit too much for me. But I will still make the trip out there to ride. I will be sure to bring some shin / knee pads, and will probably go with platform pedals instead of clipless for the day. Do you have a date in mind?
That should work for me. Lets just pick a date soon so we all have time to make plans. Are you going to head out to Western MA for our AZ crew ride and Batchlor street? That is also looking like a september ride.
T The riding on this side isn't really XC at all, and you don't get the greatest cardio workout. We probably only covered 4 or 5 miles and we rode for 3.5 hours. You'll stop take a break, maybe try out of few drops/rollers, take some pics, ride a few hundred yard (usually of very technical singletrack) , and repeat. I mean you can ride it XC style, but unless you are a very, very good rider it would be frustrating because you have to walk a decent amount. This isn't to say that it is all about downhill though because there are quite a few very nice hill climbs. They are very technical and usually pretty short though.
