What did You do today on your bike? (a thread for anything bike related)

got this idea from a BMW forum that im on, its just where you can post what ever. if you went on a ride and took some pics, post your pics, if you did a new upgrade, post your upgrade, if something awesome happen, tell us about it. But remember. it didnt happen without Pics:)

i went out for a ride. did 2 miles before i was drenched in sweat. 96 degree heat is just to freaking hot. a pic looking down the trail that takes you up to top, and a rocky tech section.

This after riding 10mi with my wife and son yesterday. 6 personal records, on a loop that was everything from flowing single track to black diamonds... Up and down.

I'm not truly a beginner, more a tweener. ;)

I bike in Texas, usually takes me a good 2-3 weeks of riding in 90 -100 degree weather to get remotely adjusted to the heat.

It was 98 when I pushed off from my apartment today. Just a short ride while Im awaiting a new rear cassette and cant ride the trails with it. 5.5 miles was pretty harsh in the hot stuff though.

Yesterday, I got absolutely drenched. We were cycling along and as we came to the top of the hill, you could see a rainstorm approaching rather rapidly. Needless to say, we didn't make it home in time! Screengrab from the video from my GoPro.

Got a friend to pick up a decent Diamondback, now I have a riding buddy! :thumbsup: Hit the local trails for a couple hours. Drenched in sweat by the time we got back to the car. Lovin' it though.

Did this today, it was in the mid to high 90s, but this was mostly in the shade, but still when I stopped for whatever reason, it was HOT...

Rode 2 miles in mud, decided I'd had enough, went home, cleaned the bike, put it up in the garage until next weekend.

^ riding in mud is my favorite to do. after fresh rain if sun starts to show i go out and ride. sliding around and having to work twice as hard to do the trails in my area will kill you in the first 2 miles. it is a lot of up then down then up then down then up then up again and then up some more.
