Rain, rain and more rain

If you see somebody building a big boat, don't hesitate, jump in. Brandywine falls

The knob before the race

The view from the gravel road leading to the Knob racing course Saturday morning

 We thought the course would be muddy and wet and after an assesment lap, Kermit was clean.

Trail work day at Royalview

Good trail day yesterday at Royalview out and back loop. The Metropark crew has built a few more bridges on this section. This section is going to have a few different features that the original loops, like a few rock jumps.

Huge Oak tree in the background that you can't see in the summer.

Possible maiden voyage this weekend

I need a new stand. I won that one at a race back in the late 80's.

Finally have all the parts and is 90% finished, need a chain. All I need is to trim and bleed the cables and since I don't have bleed kit or know how to do it, to the shop it goes. I am going to ride it this weekend regardless.

Dark +running+no blinking lights=Stupidity

Almost hit a runner Wednesday morning on Valley pkwy. near Brecksville rd on my way to work.
No blinking lights, reflective tape that didn't reflect anymore. I thought it was deer. People, please be smart with your life, you only have one.

Fall colors 2

Beautiful Indian Summer days we've had this week. Rode the mtb to work yesterday and it was fun. Lots of acorns and buckeyes on the roads makes for tricky descents. Just ask the guy that fell coming down the parkway from Ridge rd. I was going up and see alight coming down slowly and all of the sudden I see the light go horizontal. He was fine but walked the bike the rest of the way down. On my way home hit the local trail for my last 3 miles before heading home with lights blazing and some juice left in my legs. you can ride a trail hundreds of times during the day but hit it when is dark and it is a totally different experience. Great way to finish a 4:45hrs day.
