    Steroid injections for bike-induced Carpal Tunnel

    After 10 months, the steroids wore off. I'm back to waking up in pain every hour if I ride that day. Ironically, I made it through downhill season just fine, and as soon as I started riding XC again, the numbness started. That's probably a coincidence in timing of the injections. But maybe...

    A gypsy and her list obsession

    That is about the 10th person who mentioned the Timberline Lodge and The Shining. Unfortunately we never saw it. The Timberline to Town was an awesome run!

    A gypsy and her list obsession

    My original intent was to write here a few times a week. But I went back to work September 1 which threw me a curve ball. It was the first time I physically left the house and went to work since March 2020. Unlike many, I was very happy about going back! I enjoy most people and hate being...

    Help Choosing Shoes for Flat Pedals

    Why @Mare45 Why? Unless you want to start jumping or going off big drops, don't go flat. That's just my advice. You are a skilled rider. I started slowly transferring over to flats back in 2013 because I was a dirt roadie and a shitty technical rider. I've done a full 360 and now I'm a...

    Round Valley Conditions

    @Patrick Wish I realized that was you today, I would have taken my earbuds out to talk! Does no one use the switchbacks anymore, even to descend, they seemed Jurassic? Thanks for all the clean-up you are doing!!

    A gypsy and her list obsession

    As I think of them, I’m going to start writing down my thoughts (memories) of each place I’ve ridden, so 10 years from now when my memory is even foggier I’ll know where to return. I guess I need a rating system. 1-10. 1 (Whistler) will be the most awesome place on earth for now. Creek is a 2...

    A gypsy and her list obsession

    Above I posted my favorite list! Riding park, specifically jumping my bike makes me the happiest! Having summers off definitely makes completing this list easier. But I only got to two ‘new’ parks this summer. So, I’m heading out to Mt Hood tomorrow to ride both SkiBowl and Timberline. I won’t...

    I ripped my G Form Knee Pads. Are they salvageable?

    I have sewn near identical tears in my G-forms and they have held up well.

    A gypsy and her list obsession

    Shopping lists, to-do lists, places-to-ride-in-NJ list, Bike Parks in North America list, they go on. I love making lists. I like writing them on a physical piece of paper using an actual pen. If it’s a long-term list, I’ll resort to digitizing it. Something about checking items off is extremely...

    The July 31/31 Classic p/b Halter's, JORBA, & MTBNJ

    Day 29 ✔️ I live a very fortunate life so I don't like to complain, but today was sub-par. - I was supposed to be riding Thunder, which was unnecessarily postponed because the freakin weatherman said it was going to rain. - I had to ride on the road again - During ride I stopped to help a lost...

    I have several old pair of riding shoes, mostly kid/women sizes (sizes range from 38-41). Does anyone know somewhere in/near Hunterdon County that I can donate these? Or does anyone want to come take them for free?

    Day 25 ✔️ With two baseball games plus a 4 hr drive home, the only way I was getting in a ride today was to commute to the baseball field. Road ride on the mountain bike. https://strava.app.link/AznIV0Ppbib

    The July 31/31 Classic p/b Halter's, JORBA, & MTBNJ

    Day 24 completed very early (for me). I need to return to NJ for a few hours today, so I had to catch the ferry this morning. I knew getting in a bike hour was going to be a challenge, so I woke and rode around the golf course before it opened. It is a very rare day that I get on the bike...
