11:43 in the saddle = bruised bottom
« on: May 19, 2008, 10:34:28 AM »
So - 11 hours and 43 minutes in the saddle in the GA mountains = a bruise on my butt that is shaped exactly like my bike saddle.....It was a blast and well worth it btw

I am ready for another trip already....I have a 7 trails in 7 days planned for North Louisiana (the trails that were in MTB Action a few months ago) in mid Aug.  I however want to do another weekend getaway before then.

suggestions?

I'm for sure not doing 12 hours solo.  Not interested in abusing myself that much! ;D
