Me?

46 degrees and rain

70% paved/30%dirt and gravel
Nothing like a little HTFU to start the year!

Re: (benjaminobscene)

We did our shop New Years ride today. Up lookout mountain on the road and then down Apex Trail in the snow.
Time = not enough
Vertical = just enough
Distance = probably not much
Fun = Tons!

Video coming soon

Re: (patrikman)

Rode yesterday at the trail we just built this last year. Current loop is 2.5 miles but will have an additional 7-12 mile trail in the park this next year.
12 people - 1st Annual Hangover Ride
13F outside with a little snow/ice on the trail.
Did 4 laps and went home to warm up.

did it all on about 3 hours of sleep.

Had a whole lot of fun in the mud today. Did the White's Hill to Pine Mountain loop and came down Repack. I took my single speed rigid 29er. I ended the ride with beers and brats at the Gestalthaus. All in all, a very rewarding day.

Sounds awesome, Repak looks pretty wild. I forget the name of the movie but it's basically a documentary on mountain bikings roots around that area and the Repak race. Very cool stuff.
I rode about 2 miles to the gas station in the morning on my SS rigid 29's cause it was crappy and snowy out. I'm not that hardcore to road ride when it's cold.

Re: So, did you ride today? (merckx56)

I know I'm late to the party here but we have 3.5 feet of snow on the ground and enough rock salt on the roads to grind my frame into dust in approximately 5 miles.
Biding my time....slowly...painfully....damnit I need to get a trainer!!!

Re: So, did you ride today? (merckx56)

I wanted to ride a 100 on the 1st but it was raining in FL so I did not want to clean up the bike for the ride home. I finished up the year with 921.9 miles for december, and we did a 4 hr and 55 min century in 12/31/09.
It is crazy cold here in NJ, just got back a noon time today...

Klunkerz is the movie. It's awsome being able to ride those trails whenever I feel like it.
