this fall has rocked!

i have had a blast riding my bike this fall! even though it's rained and been cloudy for like 16 out of the past 15 days, it can't dampen the spirits. the riding has been fantastic, the legs are firing and i'm already yearning for winter to be over and next season to begin. of course, once the snow flies, i'll be down with the ski scene, but for now, i'savoring every single second of trail time. a look back on what's gone-down on-trail since fall began:

sun sept 25: the vt50 mtbike race - love this "fall classic" - and finished 16th out of 650, which definitely helps make happy memories.

sun oct 2: ebdb in north conway, nh - Black Cap Mtn route, plus a bunch of other stuff, 5-6hr epic ride on the best trails i've ever ridden.

sat oct 8: big kahuna - 6hr uber-technical singletrack epic on boston's north shore. even torrential rain couldn't dampen our spirits.

sun oct 16: 4-5hr epic with the home team on the north shore with the Meat Tornado.

sat/sun oct 22-23?: i feel an epic. an epic to make all other epics pale in comparison. north conway again? or ... do we do the kahuna route again, an ultra-small crew - riding the route not just to gloucester, but back again... hmmm... daren mentioned the Moats - that's a 10hr epic as well... also considering hitting the road and riding Kacamangus Highway from Chris and Carole's in Campton, then back. a 100miler with insane amounts of climbing. the double on my Lemond and i will be fighting by the end of that one.

sat oct 29: fall foliage 400min race. i'm gunning for a win. gotta finish this season off right!
