Cranked out 23 today, my longest ride since my surgerys. Man, it feels so good to be back on the bike. I know, 23 isn't far, even by my old standards, but it was a very good ride and I am very happy to be riding again.

Simple pleasures......:ricky

PS: VERY happy with my new to me Fuji Pro Cross.

15 for me on the mtb. Over 2 hours. I go for duration and intensity and not distance off road. Burned over 2000 calories so it was a good day. :thumb

Indeed, sounds like a good ride. Quality, not quantity. :thumb

Is your motorcycle jealous yet? :lol3

Nah I have been combining the two. Put a bike rack on the KTM and haul the bike to where I ride. Two birds one stone.

Glad you are enjoying your riding again. I know how much I am enjoying being back on the bicycle.

Goddammit.

So we're hangin' out up in Copper Harbor, drinkining bear after one of the toughest mountain bike races I've ever done (even tougher than that hundred miler I did back in May), and I do what I always do- start talking about the Salsa Mukluk, of course.

"Say it again!"

"Say it louder!"

:lol3

So yeah, long story short- there may have been a drunken gauntlet thrown down in regards to the Arrowhead 135.

Entry fee goes up December 1st. :eek1

Yeah, I know this look all gnarly and all- but I was so fucking blown that getting off and walking down would have been harder than riding down. :lol3

Hey all, new to this thread.

My buddy is training for a double ironman in October. I told him I would be his training partner(bad idea). We rode 132 miles today in 8.5 hrs. I know, not Tour pace, but we were shooting for 200 so we paced for that. I was pretty surprised that i felt pretty good at the end (tired of course), but the farthest I had ever ridden before that was 40 miles.

Tour riders get to draft off eachother, triathletes don't. If I could keep that pace up by myself for that long, I'd be pretty happy. I usually go with lowercase t "tour" pace. :D

What's the part of the brain that controls fear and the self-preservation instinct? Mine's overdeveloped and I need it reduced, it's putting a damper on my mountain biking.:p3rry

Buddy of mine in the DC area cased a jump on his DH mtn bike and ended up in a chair. He did/does the same thing.

You CAN end up a quad, but why harsh someone's buzz by pointing that out?!

Well, alcohol consumption is one option. AKA "The Hold My Beer And Watch This Effect".

In that case, I was merely do damn tired to get off the bike. :lol3
