    I was wondering if you guys were riding while on 495 this morning on my way home from a hockey tourney in Marlborough.

    Vos, C.P., Tyler, and I kept riding after Splat and BadDNA left. According to Vos' GPS, we got in 6 miles in 3 hours. That's like a land speed record for us!!! We hit a lot of great stuff and somehow found a really swoopy trail to take back home. Awesome ride and nice to be out there on some suspension again!

    I was out there early Sun morning. What a great day for a ride. I live farther out on the Cape so I don't ride Otis as much as the other trails on the Cape. It was nice to put my new(er) Stumpjumper through the paces.

    A winter spot here in Bend that I ride. It's nice because it has lots of lava rock spots to keep you thinking and your tech skills a bit polished.

    It's my first dual suspension bike, so I am still adjusting to the travel. I must say, it's pretty sweet on the drops! :monkeydance:
