Six hours of racing requires a taper week to kill the dead legs. Hopefully some jump will return Saturday morning. Rest, a good diet and good preparation for the rest of the week...

Where is this trail????

Here is a very recent pic of Pookie riding some super-sweet sidehill singletrack. Can you guess where in the Roanoke region this trail is?

Get Dirty at the Cove returns!

It's finally here! Thursday March 18th marks the return of the Get Dirty at the Cove weekly mountain bike ride.

It's hard for me to believe, but this will be my 7th year of leading this ride. Over those years I've been fortunate enough to make many new friends, survive many spectacular crashes, see a whole bunch of bears, make everyone laugh at least once, and ride the area's sweetest trails almost each and every Thursday evening.

Please join us. It's always a great time. Complete details are here.

As many of you know, we are selling our big house in the city and moving into something a bit more cozy - if we can ever find something we like! So I ask you, is it better to buy something close to trails and great riding that needs some work, or to buy a house that we don't have to do anything to that requires a bit more travel in order to reach good riding? I'm conflicted.
