Like a disease

All I gotta say is that, with the early warm weather in the east coast this year, the cycling bug is back.
It burns like a vaginal disease (pics available upon request).

Yeah, the weather seems to be opposite for the left and right coasts than normal this season. I wish I had time to ride more. So far my bike rides consist of 3 miles, running the dog around the block... I'm hoping to get this DH bike rollin' soon.

I hate to say it, but I finally got out for my first ride of the year, & it was only 11 miles.

I guess that's what happens when you buy a house & have tons of work to do on it.

Yeah its weird, almost all of us are now riding fully rigid singlespeed bikes on trails that are more rocky and more technical than what we used to ride. No doubt that a geared suspension bike would be faster on half of the trail sections but singlespeed and fully rigid is just a bit more fun and rewarding.
