Gear Check

I haven't posted anything in awhile and it is time I do so here is a short little post:

The TNGA is on my mind. I've been riding plenty but not too long and not too hard but I'm not sure how much that will matter once the race starts. I've been working to get the navigation dialed which is a little challenging since I have never seen any of the course. And I need to do more work to get all my gear together. I was going to carry everything on my back but have since decided to let the bike carry some the weight. For my ride on Saturday I tested it out:


1206 > 476 > 5018 > Horse Cove > Squirrel Gap > Bradley Creek > 5015 > 1206

I hadn't been up Funnel Top Mtn. Rd. in a long time and was pleased with how gentle the climb was and how wide open the views were:


Horse Cove had some new bench cut work done to it. Very soft but good to see groups are out there doing tread work. Contrary to popular mtb beliefs hikers and equestrians do much more than just clear dead fall.


Bradley Creek, oh how I love thee!


The ride was good and the gear set up seemed to work just fine!
