Back on the Bike

Montgomery Creek
I'm officially back from the not so cold, but relatively snowy north, and am kicking it on the mountain bike once again!  Knocked out a quick 9 mile doubletrack ride at Montgomery Creek as I waited for the trails to dry out a bit, and then did about 9 miles at Gainesville State College the next day. 

For my ride at GSC, I was actually able to meet up with a guy that I'd met on the Singletracks forums. We connected at the trailhead, and knocked out 2 laps together.  It was a fun time, and I realized that I miss riding with people.  Due mainly to time constraints and a weird schedule, I have been riding by myself almost 100% of the time over the last month.  (Of course, one whole week of the last month was spent skiing with friends, so I don't really know what I'm talking about). It was just really fun and totally chill to be able to chat and ride with someone.  The trails at GSC are especially good for conversation.  Read: easy and flat. It's not like I'm trying to carry a conversation while huffing and puffing up one of the massive North Georgia gravel road climbs behind one of the local guys with quads of steel.  No, rocking GSC was a good thing.
