You racers are no doubt getting geared up for the season. Here's one to add to your list of potentials, a 12/6 hour mtb race on May 6th, 2006 at Fort Yargo State Park in Winder, Georgia. Details can be had at the Dirty Spokes website. And for the non-racers, Gnome-fest, part III is on the menu. Tastes like chicken.
Weatherman is calling for 70 degrees F this weekend, sounds like prime riding weather to me. Can it be, is winter over? Only 2 real snow falls this season? Global Warming? The sky falling? I don't know but my tires are going to chew up some dirt, that's for sure. Had some good riding at the Shed again this weekend although a loose BB sent me home to switch the Kelly for the Surly. The poor Surly, she's been set up with the studded tires since December or so, just ready for the icy trails that barely showed themselves this year. A quick swap of the tires and I was back in action. The act of removing the snow tires may insure another round of white stuff as they were probably acting as some sort of talisman holding mother nature at bay. So be it, the old reliable bike swung right back onto the trail and did her job without a complaint.
I suppose both bikes deserve a little TLC but I've been to busy swinging a hammer and sanding drywall mud to give them the love they deserve. That is the beauty of the single speed, they barely need looking after which suits me fine as I'd rather be riding than wrenching, but at some point you better show them some love. Guess I better make some time.
