Bah. Just saw this.

Anyway, next, next weekend I'm definitely up for Fountainhead (20th & 21st). Let's start planning for it now and try to get a good group to go. What's better Saturday or Sunday morning?

It was rougher than usual. All ther trails everywhere are getting pretty bad since there's been no rain to soften things up and smooth things out. Saw a couple people almost crash on shock-a-billy due to loose dust and grit. What do you think your start time would be after work?

I need to get a new helmet before I can go riding, I was hoping to pick one up tomorrow, but performance doesn't open till 10am and REI not till 11am. I cracked my old helmet in a superman impersonation Tues night. Luckily no injuries, just sore and headache the next morning. There's talk of a CCT out and back ride (40+ miles each way) next weekend. Not sure if I'm going to do a half loop or the whole thing yet...

:sigh: Almost 1 year later and the only change in status is that I need to actually look for the derailer now instead of knowing exactly where it was.

I was thinking of maybe going out to Difficult Run tonight (Start at Skatequest in Reston) for a short ride (10mi). Can't do Fountainhead this weekend, doing a 13 hour race this weekend in Leesburg. Maybe next week Wakefield &/or Fountainhead next week after I recover?

Jon - After you find that derailleur if you need any help installing it or doing other maintenance, etc let me know. Always good to get more people out there and riding.

I've been pretty much riding all winter, as long at it's over 35F. So this season is actually starting out pretty well for me!

I'd definitely be up for Difficult Run one day next week. Just need to know at least a day in advance so I can bring the bike to work.

Get full finger gloves, but ditch the bell, odometer and water bottle. If you're on the trail and need to pass, just shout. Use a Camelbak instead of a bottle - it won't fall off, holds more water, keeps it out of the dirty, is hands free, and can hold other stuff as well. There's really no need for a bike computer.

hmm yeah. camelbaks weren't around when I used to bike a lot. I had a road bike and was into distances, how fast I'm going, that sort of thing. This will be my first mountain bike. I read a bunch of enthusiasts hating on 29ers.... so i bought one.

If anybody is interested in a leisurely ride at fountainhead or accotink, let me know. I'm getting back into riding and should be around this week.
