......mountain biking (mostly) singletrack-style!!! Had all day to go ride- nowhere to be, nothing to worry about except that it was freaking snowing again!! Looked at the radar and southern East TN looked clear-cold, but clear so off to Tanasi I went. Great alternate drive, because of rock slide you have to use highway 68, and time to trail was pretty much exactly the same. A few flurries but then the sun was out and the trail conditions were fantastic. Largely dry and fast and FUN! So nice to ride the new bike on some real trails and just be out in the woods. AHHHHH!!!

More winter fun?!?!

Yes, the winter that would never end or at least it sure is making riding outdoors more interesting. Two Thursdays ago found that the Park had much more snow than anywhere near town. Stayed warm and it sure was purty!

Oh my my, oh hell yes, honey put on......

......your plastic SS party dress. Yeah thats it. Pics are weird cause I sent them from photobucket while the computer was fried. Anyway, its super bitchin', stupid-light (18lbs.) and yes I'll be kicking your ass aboard this fine machine at a hundred mile mountain bike race real soon (I hope- always fun to trash talk a little!) The other bike was fantastic and this one does everything better. Can't wait for warm, dry, fast single-trackin'.

The winter that would never end

Or at least not give a slight warm-up for a day or two. Still cold, still grey, snow, rain, etc.- be nice to have something near 60 and sunshine. Its really gonna make spring extry good and continuing to ride outdoors must be making me more hardcore (even if its in my own mind).

A few pics from last Thursdays jaunt through the Smokies. That is the best thing about winter and riding in the park- nobody is up there so you have the roads to ourself, especially compared to summer.

BTW people- the plastic wonder mountain-style bike is DONE! Pics soon. You know you want to see it. Real bad.

Team Ed NEEDS one

A very good customer at the shop just got his sprinter back, equipped with just enough to make some serious road trips much more fun and comfortable. We need one bad- we will accept any donations but I think the secret may lie in selling Krispy Kreme donuts at local storefronts.

Get on the Train

Of course I rode last Thursday- it was in the 50's and the sun was out. There were even times when I would be climbing sans covering on me arms! Yes, I suck for getting the 2nd best day of Jan. to ride but I'm o.k. with that. No pics 'cause it was mostly a pain-fest- SS Mtn.-style bike, out n back (not quite all the way) on Richard Mtn./ P.diddy Branch for a little over 40, in right at 4 hours. It's time to get ready for Cohutta!!
