    Yes, I know of the area, though I haven't biked it. Great area for road biking from what I've heard. Mostly paved, low traffic county roads and lot of rolling hills. Pretty farm country with lots of...

    Same, here. On top of everything else, we're still getting very springlike high winds, 20-30 mph stuff. By June, winds have calmed down in normal years. Those winds have little effect on my trail...

    Hang in, there, Crankin'. You, too, NY. We all know how tough it is to get back into top long distance riding form after a layoff, so keep your spirits up. I'm there, too, in fact. Haven't done...

    More rain, last night, so things just keep getting "squishier" around, here. :) The good news is that our soils are basically sand with rocks thrown in here and there, so only low sections of trail...

    Be great if we could work out some kind of exchange program. I send everyone a little bit of my 40s and 50s weather and you send me some, but not all, of your 90s weather. No kidding, frost warnings...

    NY, if the lump is going down, I'd do a wait and see, but hold off on more riding in the meantime. Going to the doctor, even for routine checks, is on my list of most hated things to do.

    90s? OMG. Highs in the 50s for us, later in the week.

    Always amazes me how you can so often ride over a ton of junk and not get a flat and then just the smallest thing gives you one. Very rare to...

    Mostly a sweet ride on this beautiful May day, with a little of the bitter thrown in and maybe some doubts, too.
