Weekend riding

Last weekend Melinda and I road the trails at Bay's Mtn on Friday afternoon and Haw Ridge in Knoxville on Sat morning. They are 2 very different places but both can be fun. Haw Ridge offers over 25 miles of tight singletrack full of rocks, roots, and ladder bridges. Each we visit there it seems they've either added a trail or made some kind of change.

Here is a video of a log crossing/ladder bridge that we rode. During the rainy season you can usually find this area to be swampy but not lately with the lack of rain we've had.

Here are a few pics from our ride at Bay's mtn. There is very little singletrack but that is something I hope is going to change over the next couple of years. Right now our club, (NTMBA) is building a new singletrack trail that's about 2 1/2 miles long and we hope to have it finished in the next couple of workdays.







Saturday night a bunch of friends got together to cruise around downtown. I had a hard decision to make, take the cruiser or take Mary. Since I've been wanting to do a little urban assault action I decided on Mary but we ended up just cruising.

Brad broke out his new ride, a Surly Crosscheck sporting the fatest slicks I've ever seen. I'm jealous.

Bob brought out the tandem.

We saw this toilet sitting outside an empty house and I had to stop for a picture.




This weekend we're heading up to Ohio to see my folks for the weekend. My Dad has been talking for some time about a train ride that you can take, I'm not sure of the route or destination, but you take your bikes and ride back. We may get to do that so it could be interesting.
