The Off-Season Season

With racing season almost over, Mike Maher, Rich Allen and Ray Sielski were able to get out for a ride just for the fun of it ... rejuvenating the childhood enjoyment that got us all hooked on bikes in the first place.

I did better than I thought I would and finished with a nice hill climb then decended into the mud pit of Gollum. A 29'r would have been nice as my bb was bottoming out on the rock trails. Mike did a nice split when his tire found a groove in boards over a creek. This was covered by snow and caught him by surprise. Mike also fell off a boulder and was in a very precarious position, which could have been a bad 4 foot tumble. Rich had tire troubles early but rebounded to have a nice day on the tech stuff. Good thing we practiced the tire fix drill earlier in the week.
