A Crack in the Relationship - No Love For My Mountain Bike

I'm not quite sure how I let April slip away without really having played in the dirt.  I have a grand total of 23.5 miles on my mountain bike.  It's just so wrong.  I promise to show my mountain bike more love next month.

My first journey out was the Spring Fling put on by the WorsWomen.  While Lapham Peak doesn't really qualify as singletrack, it was fun to get out and socialize with everyone.  I'm not a runner so I pleased with the chill pace that was set on the run (more like jogging actually).  I was dicking around in the transition area because there was no hurry to get on the bike.  After all, the vibe of this event was totally relaxed.  Then a handful of faster ladies jumped on their bikes and left me behind holding my knee warmers.  Mountain bikes just bring out the competitive beast in many of us.  I jumped on my bike and chased everyone around as best as I could.  It was nice to have a little bit of a moderate bike effort to go with my socialization.  All in all, a very fun day that cost zero dinero.  I'm sure I'll hit it up again next year.
