Rode this morning and it was warm enough that there was no frost, so things were kind of soft. However, the temperatures were mild today, it should not freeze tonight, and tomorrow night will be in the 40s -- so I'm thinking that the trails might actually be fast again at Corby.

Rode a lap at Krug and it was muddy. It was kind of scary in some spots, but pretty much rideable. I was geared with a 36x20, which I can clean the hills with when conditions are good... However, in the mud I did some walking.
Then Wednesday and I cruised over to Sunbridge, which I have never ridden before. It was awesome. I couldn't believe how cool the trails were. Can't wait to get back there with a geared bike, as there were some climbs that I could not do on the ss, but would like to try with some lower gearing. The view was amazing as the sun was setting on the river.
Hoping we can get the Thursday ride going again this week. Is anyone else available? Spencer, isn't it time to get that Pugley out on a night ride?

I have been getting hung up at work more often than not lately, but my hope is that I will be there at 6:30.

It was a little lonesome though - hopefully we can get some folks stirred up for rides after the first of the year.
BTW - Heard that there was a new Pugsley in town. Can't wait to get Spence out there to see how it works. Thought I saw some Pugsley tracks out there today, but couldn't be for sure.
I won't make it out on Tuesday, I'll be travelling to Lincoln for work, then might try to catch the Tuesday nite ride there.

Here's a shot of my buddy James at Landhl this summer. It was hotter than hell, but we had a great time. Can't wait till things calm down with work so I can enjoy some of the great Missouri riding like this again.
James and wife just had a baby, so he is probably not riding much either. Enjoy the photo.
As far as weekend rides go - Today, I don't know what I can get away with. Tomorrow, I would like to head out for a 1:00pm ride if the weather cooperates. Anyone up for meeting at Corby - 1:00 pm?

Found this picture at Joe's Crab Shack in Olathe, so I thought I would post it in aticipation of Thursday's ride.

I'm missing the Thursday night ride right now, although it wasn't sounding like many were going to show.
I had to work late tonight, will be working later tomorrow, Sat, and Sun. Seems like the next week will be kind of ugly too. I expect to be back in the swing of things next Thursday, but until then I will be working on putting on weight and being stressed.
Anyway, this means I won't be at the trail work day... Sorry Shawn.
The good news is that Wednesday got her stitches out tonight and she's looking good.
More good news, I think I have most of the Corby Trails mapped. Check out the picture... Yellow is the established trails - Red is the Corby Expansion Loop, or part of it.
See you guys soon - Enjoy the trails.

Okay, this isn't a picture of the Tuesday Night Ride - Yet....
Well, we all survived Monday. Reward yourself, you deserve it. Charge up your light, saddle up, and ride the Corby winter wonderland.
See you all at the Corby Stretching Station at 6:30.
(The group picture is of the 2005 Laramie Enduro, that's me in like 20th place. Later in the race i moved up to about 15th, then I missed a turn, got lost, and came in something like 85th. Thought I was going to die that day. Best and worst day of my life. Anyone in for next year?)

Unfortunately, I see work getting kind of hectic for me over the next few weeks - so my ride updates and appearances might fade abit. However, I will do what I can.
After the craziness calms down though, I am all about the bike.
Shawn is going to try for another trail work day in the next couple weeks. Sounds like with a little help from the bikers, the city might be willing to throw in some resources. That is something new to me... In Lincoln the cithy would put more energy into keeping us off trails than anything else.
Corby is still in good shape, and I might try to ride it tomorrow morning... Depending. Been trying to shake off a cold or something since the cold wet ride on Tuesday. Maybe not one of my smarter moves.
