Hats Off To Ya'.

A pure blooded MBMer took the podium at the Second Top Secret Beer Run. Believe me when I tell you, that was no small feat. Pat your boy Ho' on the back for whoopin' up on us Cupcakes. Rumor has it that he was by far and away the fastest rider on the lower, fastest, and scariest part of the course.

North Fork Awareness Ride/IMBA Pre-party

I'm posting this for RuthC since she's not yet a member...

Anyone interested in carpool/heading down to the North Fork Awareness Ride/IMBA Pre-party in Harrisonburg on Saturday then to WV on Sunday for the ride?? I plan on leaving saturday late afternoon, car camping in harrisonburg saturday night, then back to chambersburg late sunday evening. The ride is open to anyone, but basically expect an all day ridge riding with a larger group. There will be a few options for anyone wanting to ride a longer route....I will probably do the longer route if I feel up to the pace.

@X10 drive train 2011

Didn't know if anyone from shops got to bike show this pass week. I'm looking at buying a 29er that 2011 model. It has the new shimano 10 speed gears. Want people opinion on the gear ratio:

27/40 crank with 12-36 cassette. Wasn't sure if it better than 9 speed for climbing or middle range for rock gardens. I'm looking at going 1X9 gear for salsa bike, but not sure if leave it with 10 speed or convert down to 1X9.

Sunday will be at Caledonia. We will do some stuff different. Sometimes when you ride stuff backwards it makes them feel like new trails, so Sunday will be backward day. Ride time 9am

Wed ride?

Is anybody interested in a ride tonight? Mont Alto? Caledonia? The pace will be steady but not fast. I'm just looking to get some miles in and have some fun.

I rode with all of Mooch's friends at Mont Alto last night. Coal Hearth had a lot of debris and there are a couple sections that have been logged/cleared.

MBM Web Page

Click on the title of this post to take a look at the MBM homepage I put together. This is just hosted on some personal webspace I have for now. I'm sure there will be no shortage of opinions on this so let 'em fly. I'm not a web designer so don't expect to have an earth shattering religious experience while viewing this page.

Sunday will be at Teaberry, ride time 9am. Time to preride the race course. I might not be there so have fun and don't get lost.
