Well, well, well. The bike club! I ride both road and mountain. I used to like mtb a whole lot more, but changing between my road bike and my mtb is like going from night to day. I still enjoy the trail though. If I had more time, I might get on the trail more often. 8)

Rider1000 I think I need to visit the LBS again soon. Even if I can't afford to do anything more than look. :D

Keep looking at getting a jersey. Any suggestions? Please don't make them to expensive.

Support your LBS.... but http://www.performancebike.com and http://www.nashbar.com, usually have good sales... but always check your LBS first, they have better service and will usually reward loyal customers.

That be one reason why I'm glad I live down south. I have discovered that if I want my water to be drinkable by the time my ride is about over, I have to put hot water in my bottle. Very exciting.

Today I went and rode 23 miles, not too much, but good all the same for the winter. I left the house about 5 and sundown is about 5:30, so it was pretty dark by the time I got home. Thank goodness for lights... :shock: There was a really beautiful sunset tonight, and I'm glad I got to see it. It's amazing what you will see when you just slow down and look at God's creation. I saw a deer right next to the road, that was cool. Not to mention all the dumb little squirrels that are everywhere, and the occasional attack dog. Oh, and here in tennesse we have what is called a possum. It's a flat thing that lives on the roads. Saw a couple of them tonight, for some reason, they don't smell all that great. Oh well.... Long post, sorry... :(

Hope every one has a very Merry Christmas.... Remeber the reason for the season... It's good to have happy holidays, but we can't forget why there is a reason for us to live... :P

Glad to hear your still biking rider1000, I like to read long posts especially when it's about biking :smt024

:smt012 Brrrr....we just went thru a real cold spell!! But now it's above freezing agian during the day!!! :D 8) :lol:

:smt045 I like the part about the water bottle, I have a platapus (water system backpack) It is insulated but I need to get insulation for the tube and bite valve. If i keep drinking now and then, it doesn't freeze... :lol:

I havn't gone on any long bike rides this winter. I did bike around after we had some freezing rain... ohh two inches of ice. Probibly ice skates would have worked better!! :smt043

:arrow: Yes, let's NOT forget Jesus this Christmas season. Happy Sabbath everyone :!:

You must understand rider1000. He thinks that a 50 mile ride is just a warm-up. :lol: Actually, that was a joke. He rides quite often. As for how long and difficult 23 miles seems... It depends on the surfaces and the rought.

As for the winter weather. Ride your trainer! :mrgreen:

:smt023 Good point, except it can get somewhat boring if all you do is ride, so i usualy multi task. I tend to take a varied aproach in winter. Outdoor stuff for fun, Indoor exercise to keep me in shape & to stay defrosted. :lol:

Hey, if you ride your trainer indoors, watch a movie... Then your parents can't call you a couch potato... :P I really hate riding inside, it's not fun. So I usually just take the cold and go outside.... :? but hey, a guy's gotta be ready for the season :wink:

I don't think that I will get myself a trainer. I just don't ride as much as I used to. I have a stationary bike anyways.

The season! :roll:

I have to warn you rider1000. College changes everything. More than most people think. Cherish the bikes now.

Yup when college rolls around, I'm getting a single speed. Less maintenance, but that doesn't mean that I'm getting rid of my other bikes, no no no... still got lots o riding to do.

:smt090 Ok, I"ll take the warning too!! I"m probibly going to Walla Walla College next year. I"m already taking piano lessons there. There are quite a few good trails around and lots of people use there bike to get around College Place.

I'll probibly use my old hardtail, that way it is less likely to get stollen and such. I like my new moutain bike to much. I'll probibly keep it in my dorm room, locked up and with a security camera playing...lol :smt082

Yup :mrgreen: My bikes are sleeping in my room with me... and the good thing is. Diceguy is going to be my roommate, so we have already discussed the fridge and microwave, and couch... and other important stuff, like FOOD....

It looks like I'm heading to Walla Walla as well. I was all bent against going there, but I have seen the light. LOL I don't know who I'll be rooming with though...or even if I'll be dorm. My parents might make me live with my Grandma.

But bikes are an excellent way to get around College Place or just the WWC campus. It's huge!!! Thankfully, I might have a car to use. Or I'll just use my two legs awalkin'.

Don't take me wrong, you can still bike a lot. But not near as much as rider1000 has been known to do. My bike stays in the garage. I dare anyone to take my bike after spring break... :smt106 :smt080

I love biking!!! both mountain and road. I ride as much as possible, and then some! I think that everybody should bike and that they should take care of their bikes like they are, along with all of your outdoor gear, should be treated second only to God! :lol:

YESSSS!!!!!.....

Anyway, to answer your question pfc, i did a mountain bike race about 2 years ago, and won my race category. That was really fun, got a set of $80 tires for winning. Well worth it. Then April 9 I have a road race on my schedule in Chattanooga, the Racoon Mountain Road Race. That should be lots of fun, but we'll have to see how I do with my age group. There are some beastly teens in this neck of the woods... :shock:

:smt023 Awesome, another biker!! You'll fit in good here... :lol: Welcome to the forum wildernessfun :!:

It is important to keep good care of our outdoor gear. After all I"ve heard nature called God's second book! We can learn so much from it. 8)
