Rode up to that peak twice in the past two days with some solid riding partners. Its been a nice change compared to the solo miles I've been putting in.
Yesterday was a little greasy, for a long route hitting a few different trail systems around, got Tristan out for that one. (follow him on twitter @spurtt)
Today was all about the frozen ground after a cold night, infinite traction, Jer and I timed it just right and made it out of sugarbush and the 8th just as it was starting to warm up and that infiinite traction became finite. Even nabbed a KOM, dual credit with Jer for sure.
reading: Towns are loving (road)cycling these days, big bucks to pay organizers to organize events.
also, depending on when MTB provincials are (ive seen three very different Schedules) Sept 15 will be the AWI grand fondo, Tristan Spurr is the route designer, its going to incorporate both Awenda PP and Big chute.
The Hobbit: was a big let down, over the top CGI, dragged out story, it should be two films max not three, #cashgrab acting good, story good, but should have kept it simple and closer to the LOTR mold.
