Bike Night

This wednesday. Pay attention to the forum you're in.

Chills and I are hitting Knoch Knolls on the mountain bikes this wednesday. Meeting at 6:30pm in the parking lot at naper/washington behind the tennis courts.

Just tossing it out in case anyone is interested.

This is single track. Lots of turns, some tight, some obstacles, not a lot of elevation change, lots of trees, lots of fun.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I'm a maybe.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Bummer about Nick, but it'll be good to ride with you again.

I'll try not to crash this time.

I might be down. How wide are these trails?

As in how much contact with the surrounding bushes will be made.

I am crazy allergic to poison ivy, i have had it 16 times. I would be wearing pants and a long sleeve shirt either way, just curious.

The single track is VERY narrow. Lots of contact with the bushes, tree limbs, everything in the forest.

I ride these trails at least once a week since I live up the road, and (knock on wood) I haven't gotten any ivy or oak poisoning yet.

That site needs a little updating. There are some "permanent" obstacles that have been intentially placed on the trails. Pretty cool ones, too, with smaller branches helping you up on the larger logs. Also, the BMX bowl has been filled in.

Too bad there aren't any good pics of the single track on that site.

I will just wear long pants and long sleeves and sweat my arse off.

You're too funny. Are you going to make the trek down here for this?


HEESH: Depending on how tired everyone gets I think we'll ride for an hour to 90 minutes.

You guys going to be having cicadas as energy snacks? Should be able to eat them on the fly, literally.

I just remembered about the cicadas being out. Now I could care less about the bugs, but I don't want to wreck into a tree from a natural instinct to dodge one of those huge buggers to the face.

Chills, have you ridden the trail lately? How bad is it with those buggers out there. The wife ran a half marathon on the north shore on Sunday and they were everywhere.
