    Hi Ash.
    Glad to have you with us.

    How about a pic of your ride and a little description of rides you like to do?

    So here she is...its a Norco XFR 4.
    I actually love being on the trails. We have a great old rail road system where I live so spend most my time on those.

    Just getting into it, so I'm excited to get in better shape and be able to explore further out too. 44kms is my furthest ride so far.

    Sweet.

    We’ve got several rail trails here. I’ve ridden a piece of each but never all of any.

    Not sure what it is but my imaginations has created an entirely surreal landscape for you there. Is it just dense low fog in a field?

    I decided to take the bike downtown to see how bad the river was flooding. This is the river, and the mist from the river, up over its banks. Should really be a whole lot of grass there :)
    Just always thought it was a cool pic :)

    When I see older post and no new activity like this one makes me wonder how we lose folks??? Do they just quit cycling altogether, do they ride and just have no time for forums or have nothing further to ask or contribute?

    I believe, like me, when people become extraordinarily busy, or they aren’t riding for some reason, they don’t have the time or feel they have nothing to offer.

    I know that i really miss several people that haven’t posted in a while and I’m thankful others (knee to mention one) have returned.

    Sadly, i suspect some of our older members may have passed away.
