There is a group of people putting funding together to take 38 acres that once housed a Jail, though now is just empty land and they want to make this park in to a Bike Trail and some other odds and ends too.

I have a 26'er Hard Tail, a 26'er Full Suspension free-rider, and a 29'er XC... I like em all, but I ride the 29er the most as it fits the trails I ride quite nicely. If I intend to ride more crazy technical stuff with rough downhills, the FSR it...

Are you spying on me? ;) I got up bright and early this morning and attended my first spin class EVER. It was a tough workout! The music sucked (it wasn't Heavy Metal), but I got through it and will probably go back for more.
