Great way to spend Easter! My wife and I hiked 3 miles of hills, then I rode the same area right after (had bike in the car) and she took the car home. I rode several miles around Bonelli Park, then rode another 17 miles to get home, so I got in a solid 25 miles today. Felt good even on the road to get some serious Cardio in. I really enjoy the dirt much more than road, but my new bike does so well on the road I find myself getting in miles here and there just for the fitness. Nice picture!

We've been shorts weather here for a good bit. Pants weather tried to come back for a week or so but never really happened.

Shorts are year-round here! :p

Didn't get out today, but yesterday we had a great mission though what appears to be a well cut DH track that has been abandoned and over-grown with gorse. Shouldn't take too much to get it cleared up again.

l have only been riding mountain bikes for a month now but decided to do the longest ride of my life on Easter. I started on the Everglades levy, detoured halfway thru that to the Markham park Mountain bike trails, finished the levy and rode back to my house. Total miles 45. 3 hours 45 minutes on the bike. I'm still tired and sore, but it feels great.

12 miles of singletrack on my favorite local trail: Chicopee Woods, Gainesville GA. Finished the ride in plenty of time to clean up and take the family to the in-laws for Easter dinner.

When asked by my wife's family if I went to church, I replied "yup. The church of PAIN!" My wife and kids just rolled their eyes.

Nice!! I rode out there a few weeks ago. My friend Mike Saunders works on those trails and gave us a super personal tour. You guys have an amazing network of super nice, smooth groomed trails out there.

Sweet!! Yeah, great to hear. It finally stopped raining here long enough for me to get a nice technical rooted trail ride in.

One of the better rides Ive had in awhile. Everything conspired to make it an excellent outing. Good weather, low humidity, no bugs, dry trails, dialed bike, good legs, happy girlfriend. :thumbsup:

Cheers! That looks like a really nice ride, it looks like I really need to get down that part of the country on my bike some time. What's the distance between Waihaha and Waihora? Is it mostly just groomed gravel trail?
30km on mostly groomed dirt trails. Only problem is it's a bit of a logistical exercise. It's a one way trip from Waihaha to Waihora. There are two options. Turn around and cycle back (making it a 60km round trip) or catch a ferry that shuttles you back to Kawakawa Bay or Kinloch. It's $70 for the ferry. Then there's the question of where you left your car? If you leave your car in Kinloch I believe there is a shuttle service that will take you to the start of the trail in Waihaha.

The Kawakawa Bay to Kinloch and Kinloch to Whakaipo Bay rides are also worth doing.

Really? You were visiting from Hawaii?
