Giving thanks

remember this mid-April ride?
we'll miss you Jessica!

Thanks for another great year.

When a week is turning upside-down
A Wednesday ride brings me back to earth
To dirt
To wooded trails
To wonderful friends.

I sometimes remind myself that when I least feel like going for a ride, that's when I need it most. But it's more than just the biking. It's each one of you Divas who make every ride unique, inspiring and validating.

So, thanks. By joining a ride you are giving to your sisters-in-dirt. And I hope you are also receiving the wonderful, positive vibe that you've provided me.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Snowy trails ...

A happy bike is one that's not sitting in the garage ...
A happy Diva is one who's not stuck in the house!

If the temperatures stay cold and the snow continues to hold off, the trails at Hillside and Campbell Tract are fine for riding without studs or snowcat tires. The narrow trails, like Rover's Run and Lynx, are especially nicely packed. The wider trails, like Viewpoint, have more loose snow because skiers, walkers, and riders have more trail width to choose from.

If you're feeling adventurous, try one of the new singletrack loops or Birch Meadow along Campbell Creek.
