Squeezed a few mountain bike rides in this week, including yesterday with pal Brian christening his spiffy new 29er. Son Ian also joined in on the festivities. Perfect day with sunny temps in the 60s, trails in great shape - with just a touch of mud to make things interesting - leaving actual proof of dirt fun on leg and bikes.
Cruised our local trails, St Edward State Park/Big Finn Hill Park, for the uh, zillionth time. Doesn't matter, any trails ridable from the house are perfect in my book. We're lucky to have this playground virtually in our backyard, a few hundred acres laced with singletrack.
Bikes lined up, after a quick post ride hose off, for official photo session. We appear to be Team Sette, with all of our steeds sporting the same downtube sticker. Brian was impressed with his ceremonial 29er dirt action. I've been digging my 29er for two years now. Ian's Sette frame that I recently built up is working great. If you're looking for a great ride at a great price, Sette is pretty hard to beat.
This now concludes my Sette commercial, which wasn't my intent. Intent is to just ride, whatever you're riding. See you out there.
