I would love to but unfourtunatly Saturday is the only day of the week that I work.  Rough life huh?  ;D  I really do need to get with the trail bosses though.  I know there are things that crop up during the week that I could take care of while the rest of you are *ahem* working LOL

Well Bob gave us a clinic today on why hardtails climb better than fullies  :) .  I think I am going to stick with my excuse that the high roller stinks on wet roots and therfore caused my climbing issues  :P  Otherwise I had a blast today, nothing like riding in the rain to give you a different perspective of the trails.  We rode north creek, bridges, root garden and roller coaster.  Next ride is friday -- all welcome.
