first taste of singletrack

all these recent posts, feast or famine.

figured the trails in the lower valley had to be dry by now, mikey j pointed me to the nearest trailhead, about a mile from the house. the patch of woods isn't huge, but i put together a cpl nice 60min loops on dry ridgelines to swampy lowlands, smooth flowing stuff, to rooty technical hills. the day after a long ride was the perfect time to explore, scoping lightly tracked trails into stands of trees, the ribbon disappearing into the leaves, search about, get back on track. left a cpl patches unexplored, a stick ripped the rear brake line out 20mins into the ride, was a pretty wild ride after that. more sun and temps in the 70's have me stoked to get-out later today. head-down to the summer bike shop, stark mtn bike works and chat those guys up at lunch, as the trails near my house are great, but they're just a teeny-tiny patch compared to what's here. so much to explore.
