as if I wouldn't notice

As a connoisseur of bicycles, I can tell you this: it's fun as hell to ride them. Before you get all lathered up, let me just say: riding up and down trails on your cyclocross bike will make you feel great! Lest anyone poo poo this notion, allow me to add: riding from your door to a trail(s) and then back to your door is good stuff. Maybe the best?


The more bicycles are the Good Life. Go!






Though I must warn you, #50 is (still) so hammered from that stupid Thanksgiving equine trail- ride event that it beat me silly. Silly, I tell you.


And here is today's interaction with the horsey set...

Me(riding around a corner to come upon 2 ladies on their horses): Hello! Do y'all need me to get off?

Them: No, but thank you for asking. Just talk to them so they know you're friendly.

Me: Oh yeah. Hey horses. Hey, hey.

While I hate the horse ruined trail like no other, and while it is painfully evident that the horse folks don't give a flying shit about treading carefully or sensitive trails...it most likely was not those 2 gals that wrecked the trails, plus anyhow- polite interaction goes a long way towards keeping trails open to bikes.


Keep it greasy.

IMBA recommends stuffing a M-80 in the horse's behind as you ride past and tearing off like the bejesus

yes, the door to door leaving the auto parked mixed terrain style is best. makes one a bit of a loner though. but who doesn't need more silent time in their head while theraputicaly pedaling...

Oh, they give plenty of flying shit. It flies off my tires, alighting on my bike, my pack, my skin, and, top of the list, on the schnozle of my hydra hose.
Nom, nom.

Road, XC or MTB! If it is door to door with a beer at the end (Hamms to you Rev). As Billy Williams would say. "Let's play two"

I'm no fan of "dog food & glue" on the hoof either. Shit, if it weren't for bikes roads would still all be gravelly covered...hey...

Nope, bikes suck. No one should ever ride them.
