With the wind picking up as the day went on yesterday I decided to jump back into the woods for some mountain biking. I've put a lot a time in at the North Loop but still not sick of it...yet. Currently the trail is covered with leaves and/or pine needles. It takes a lap to figure out how well they will hold up in corners, etc. I managed to fair pretty well, meaning no crashes!
Instead of doing continuous loops I did sections a couple times in a row, Sport Loop, Maxx's Option, Lay It Down, .3, etc. I also did Twisted Sister. I've become to like that section. If I go into it with the right attitude It's a blast. I made it through without dabbing! For me that's a big deal. Not Charlie Schad big deal but a big deal nonetheless.
Ended with 2 hrs 15 minutes. I'm really, really, longing for some longer rides but holding off till cx is closer to done. I have this weekend and then the Nov. 8-9 weekend. Short and fast season. Then it's go time. I will start some next week as my schedule appears to allow for it!
