the weather appears to be letting up just enough to allow a little off-roading to occur...just in time for me to escape my other hobby, road racing.
i like road racing. it's a rush. it can even be fun, especially if the fitness is there and you have teammates to race with. but enough is enough. i need long bouts of mountain biking between the endless miles of road riding to keep my sanity, to remind me where i started riding bikes and why.
my best years of racing either bike may be behind me, but nothing gets me jazzed more than good weather and some good trail riding.
