Your Weekend Ride Reports -- September 14/15

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Went back to Fox Creek mtb park and did almost the same ride as last time here. There was a downhill event in progress but didn't effect the xc courses. I did some spectating and rode one of the downhills they'd finished with. It had no manmade jumps, was very rough rutted and loamy, luved it.

I finished an up and back on the GAP on Friday, having started in Cumberland the previous Saturday. Friday was the only wet day.

30 solo miles Friday, 54 with a group Sunday -- a group that for the past couple of years I couldn't hang onto without being dropped. Good company and great ride. Finally seem to be getting consistently stronger, which makes those group rides more fun. Great weather, a bit sticky but pleasant.
