Just took a few mile ride that took about 25 minutes. Good to get some rubber on the ground.
MTB is a great way to build up on your cardio with August just around the corner my goal is 4000' of climbing a week last week
that is a bob trailer. Used to be made in boise. I have had it for awhile now, over 10 years. I do believe they are still around. but under a new company. I go by Tim Koerner on strava. I will look you up.
some of the low lying trails have melted out, but most stuff is still under snow and blowdows.
For the most part I consider my self a backcountry rider. Love the day rides in the middle of nowhere. I discovered hunting off of mountain bikes in the early 90's when I was living in Alaska. Basically shot a lot of "grouse" with .22's off of my bike.
I had a forkhorn bull elk down in 2002 and I remembered the little trailer I had bought for my wife, that goes behind bikes. I went home and got the trailer peddled back to the bull, and started back down to the truck with my load of meat. I have since adapted my style of hunting to evolve around the bike and trailer. I now pack camps in a couple of miles on gated forest service roads and hunt from there. Basically backpack style but with the bike. I have packed water and other adult beverages into my camp ahead of time and cached them. Basically I would set my self up for 4-5 day hunts. very effective. The camp and locations have evolved over the years, but that is part of the fun.
I like my bike but don't use it enough. As for riding trails... I worked with an Orthopedic Doc who drew a Wyoming Area 5 Sheep Tag a few years back and he crashed on his bike about two weeks before his hunting while on a training ride. Needless to say he wasn't hunting those sheep when the season opened and him laid up with two broken arms and a few cracked ribs. Use the old noggin' when riding trails.
Been laying down the miles. Need to find some riding trails though
