    Hit up Attitash Saturday with a few guys. Place has really gotten beaten up this season as its washed out and dusty. Not a bad riding day though my bike got beat up. Smashed shifter and now my front wheel has a fairly significant amount of side to side wobble and wont hold the tire on either. New front wheel shall come this winter, I will ride the one I have until it blows up. Other than that life is meh, fairly boring. School and work today.

    Won our last CS:S match and Pubmasters 2 is out so I suppose it can be considered a good day.

    Went on a group century yesterday. 40 miles into it I had to pee really bad. Normally I would sprint ahead and do my business and get back on the pack but the pace was fast and I had no sprint in my legs. I was asking around to see if anyone else needed to stop, one dude had an embarassed look on his face and admitted he had just pissed himself :eek: :eek: :help: .

    I went mtn biking in Southern NJ. Yeah I know it's flat but someone had cut this trail thru some park lands down there. It was cool, it was almost totally flat but it twisted thru small pine trees and the sandy trail made it super slick!

    Mornin'

    My dad and I went down to the coast this weekend to get some red drum fishing in over at Oriental, NC. We got a few, but never really was able to get into a rhythm because everythime we would get into a good spot, a raging thunderstorm would blow in and chase us off the water for a few hours. We did got to try some nighttime drum fishing....which is very interesting because the Neuse river is a very treacherous river with sand shoals that come up out of nowhere. But, being armed with a kick-ass GPS and some good compass readings, we were able to navigate everything just fine. We came up empty-handed that night, but were able to redeem ourselves the next morning with about 6 nice-sized flounder around the boat docks.

    Out of my mind, back in a moment.
    Spent the weekend running up to Seneca Falls, then back here to hang out with an old friend from college. Sunday involved heading out for a free breakfast, then picking up the new lever for my Juicys, which was a snap install. Then the evening was full of Madden 04, magazines and farm fresh corn on the cob.

    And Tigg, congrats on the podium!

    friday night went to a wedding i was dreading to go to but had a blast .. with some help from kettle one.
    saturday went to hawtshorne to do some riding.... jumped into the water at sandy hook and just relaxed a little too much . the ride back to the trail head was tough. I took a friend to get a new hybrid bike at my LBS. After 3 hrs she found one she liked and bought it. then we cruised around brooklyn for a bit.
    Last night I got the urge to go for a ride ... I casually cruised around the streets of brooklyn alond the bar scene, ocasionally grabbing a pint or two


    hope you all had some fun this weekend

    It was only about 3 miles... almost totally flat however if you remember some of the drops and stuff at Tamaqua it was like that. Quick little dips here and there and lots of logs to hop over.
    I actually went OTB when I accidentally grabbed my brakes instead of pulling my front tire over one of the logs. Mayslanding is exit 44 on the GSP.

    Rather uneventful weekend, but sometimes those are the best. I picked up a pair of sixsixone knee/shin pads yesterday, so hopefully I'll cut down on my bruising! Looking forward to getting some nice rides in with Rob before he goes to school. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.

    Congrats, Tigg!

    Rob would have had a lot of trouble with that trail...damn the flat parts! And I'm glad I'm not the only one who grabs too much front brake and endos. I think I learned the hard way and will NEVER do that again!

    Are you around to ride this week?

    Yeah well there was so many logs here that by the end my arms were starting to get tired and lazy... whoops!! :)

    This was by far the easiest trail I had ever ridden.... but of course I ended up falling.... :)

    'Morning. Work sucks this morning. It is kicking my ass.

    Sounds like a lot of monkeys had a great weekend. Ours was free of riding. :( We had a wedding in Boston Saturday night, then we slept late yesterday before getting the foster dog. I did have a playoff hockey game last night that we won, so the championship series (best two out of three) starts tonight. I won the awards for top point scorer and top assist scorer. The assist one is funny because I am a puck hog.

    Are you around on Fri? We're not heading up to Senaca Falls until Sat. probably. After that, Rob will be gone (until your monkeyfest), but I'll be around to ride after work :)

    Morning! Spent the weekend doing family stuff. Had a nice late evening night ride on Friday and I rode pretty well which was great. I really enjoy night riding! Then it was off to the pub to pick up my husband and grab dinner (he'd done an earlier ride with the guys at work and was drinkin' when I got there). It's funny how they all heckle you when you ride down the road toward the bars (they could see me for quite a while as I got stuck at a light and there was a ton of traffic so I had to wait). Good times :thumb:

    Saturday we did some bike maintenance and rode around the yard until my family came over to celebrate my mother's birthday (it's really today but my sisters went up to school and they wanted to celebrate too). I made a glazed ham with mashed potatos and carrots and a tastey strawberry angelfood cake with chocolate and strawberry filling and whipped icing. :drool:

    Sunday was move my sisters back to college day. Today I am teaching some lessons and relaxing.
