You missed some fun today. Getting hot out in the backyard.

I had a great time. We had a great mix of mild/challenging trails and we ripped up the countryside without any mishaps. Let's hope and plan for the same thing next weekend.

Well, there was this one time I went from Spanish Springs up to Red Rock by way of moon rocks. On the goldwing. At night. With the fuel light on. So, I won't completely rule out stupid S.

Don't know the wooded single track of which you speak, but Dog Valley is completely clear of snow and any single track in that area would be the same.

It just occurred to me that I didn't crash once today. Hit all the good stuff, great day. Thanks Grundy.

'Twas another great day, and learning about the private property boundaries was beneficial. We now know how to get from King's Row to the top of Peavine, but we need to find a way to connect King's Row to Mogul.

I got home and found severe rub marks on my tire where the chain was slapping it. I need to have that wheel true'd, tighten the chain, and get some new knobbies. I'm taking a rider's course so I'm out next weekend but 04/13 I'll be back and ready to ride with whomever.
