I have been on the mountain bike...well, Not Enough...though I have been on the road bike lately and this last weekend some miles were put on at a good effort for me, but the MTB has been in the garage. Tonight we had about 3 inches of rain, so the trails will be wet for a while yet and the MTB will sit a little longer. I have been comtemplating heading to Marquette MI and riding the Ore 2 Shore again, so the 2 to 3 hour hard efforts on the road are a good thing. For me though, these events are not about winning...it's finishing, camaraderie and having a good time. It has to be for those reasons when a person is, shall we say, not young or fast. Missing the single trackin for sure.
