Last Sunday I went riding and Jennifer was actually able to make it out too.... had a great time.
She's been off the bike due to work and injury since December, so we decided to go somewhere easier than normal... turns out this trail reminds me a lot of Ridgeline at Boyette, just with slightly different scenery. It's similar in that it's a lot of quick ups and downs. Still more climbing than Ridgeline, with 800 feet over the 15 mile trail, but about a third what our trails typically have here.

What type of shoes do you guys wear for that? Special biking shoes or hikers?
JesseJames- We both ride in mountain biking shoes, but shoes designed for riding and hiking...
These are the ones I use:
But, Ridgeline seems to me to be much faster with more short climbs and very steep drops, followed by another short climb, and drop, over and over. That seems more like longer climbs and longer steady drops. but than again, Mrs. Twisted swears she won't try it.
Oh, and don't forget, we have these things here called roots that change the game.
Nice job though, nothing I love more than a pretty girl on a MTB.
Just one week 'till I load up the Jeep and take the bikes to Tennessee, then i will cry about the climbs.
I would, however, take Ridgelines roots over these rocks anyday. At least the dang roots don't have give to them, and are located the same place everytime. Jennifer rode Ridgeline a few times, but that was before the days of my GoPro.
Where in TN? There's some great riding there.
Nice! I have ridden Montgomery Bell and Lock 4. Both pretty sweet. After riding Lock 4 you'll get an idea of what I mean about rocks. Just imagine that one section for 20 miles. :grin
The Mrs. and I spent four days at The Inn at Monty Bell, had a great time, looking forward to Lock 4, and I plan on working on my long climbs on the path at Warner Park, though they don't really have MTB trails, but they do have a great green way that I can run or ride to from my in-laws house.
The plan is to watch the pie hole, run or ride every day, and get down to my race weight for summer. But Nashville food is the devill.
Just got back from Alafia an hour ago, great day to ride.
Yup and I'll be riding my Phatty in North Carolina in May, the guys I'm going with think I'm nutz but again they can't believe I can blow them away each and everytime with this bike.
Might be different with climbs... might not though. lol
Where in NC?
NC and TN both have some great riding. I rode another trail in Nashville, but I forget what it was called. Henderson or something or other...
I've seen that but my Pugley is up for sale I only ride my Fat Gary anymore
Naw uphill will be fine and we are riding trails in Ocoee area the rafting, then Jackrabbit on the way back, short few days.
Is there a mod around?
And team sports? So posting a Masters thread is going to be OK, maybe boxing...
Good to know.
I'll get a Masters thread going, its going to be great this year between Rory and Tiger.
Golf = Game.
Post it in OT all day as far as I am concerned since it ain't a sport. :grin
