More fun than ought to be allowed
Had a *great* time riding through Wilderness Park last night despite the heat and humidity. Rode a Surly Karate Monkey and, boy, that'll go over anything. It's also a lot easier to manage at faster speeds than the Waterford on the trails. ;)
I have to say that today I think the off-road riding is pure unadulterated fun, while the road riding is a vicious sufferfest, but each appeals to different aspects of my personality. (Those of you who know me better probably know what I'm talking about.) Moreover, I think the handling skills one develops XC improve the road riding and the road conditioning and spinning really boost speed and endurance for the XC. Consequently, I am more convinced than ever that I have to do both. Sigh. More bike purchases.
