weekend update

Rode with some singlespeed outlaws and company on Saturday … the trails (in the watershed) are clear of snow and mud…but there was some pretty heavy erosion and downed tree limbs caused by the harder than average winter.

Did some trail maintenance on Sunday… counted tord free registration at the greenbrier state park xc race!!!

Rain


its been raining pretty much all weekend... it let off for a bit so i went for a ride with Joe.

the water level of rivers and streams were way higher than normal... even though i think the snow is gone up @ the watershed with all this rain it will still be a little while before the trails are dry enough to ride...

rolling ride, ramming rottweiler

Joe Whitehair showed me around some rolling back roads... some pretty scenery…farms, small bridges, & quarries …
there is a giant quarry in there through the branches...

I was expecting it to be a pretty easy ride because Joe rides a fixed gear…but not really… my legs are pretty sore right now.

During the ride I was rammed by an adult Rottweiler coming @ me full speed!!! … the impact made the rear of my bike skid out a few inches… I’m glad it decided not to take a bite of my leg.

Unlike my last scary animal incident with wolfs (or something that looked like wolfs) I have a witness this time… so people might believe me.
