Does anyone ride here? I used to ride about 40 miles a day years ago,but then I got into motocross and I put on about 15 pounds over the years. So Im going back on the wagon and riding again,boy am I out of shape. Its going to take a couple of months just to get back to feeling ok after I ride. Does anyone know some good places to ride around Washington DC? I have some great spots in Southern Maryland, but im always looking for a change.I love downhill and have a GT IDrive 3.0 with full suspension.

I used to ride more as well, seem to go for a run more now, as I find it difficult to get out to the trails in Kananaskis country. If you are ever up this way I would highly reccommend a ride in K-country. I rode to work for 7 years until I changed jobs and started working evenings. I now come home from work at 2:00AM and would be going through a field with coyotes in it, so I don't ride to work anymore.

I have never owned a bike as nice as yours. I just bought a new Kona Blast to replace an 11 year old GT Tequesta. It was cheaper to get a new bike than upgrade the old one. My 7 year old son now has a Kona (B-day present today)and I am hoping he will come out/ask for some trail rides with me. I am pretty sure he will at least ride his new bike beside me while I run, should make for a good summer.

Well had my first good spill and broke my toe and a little road rash. I'll just have to limp around a bit, thats not getting in the way of riding.

I know the pain......Broken my toes a few times myself, glad to hear you are not letting it stop you.

My last good spill I ended up on the handle bars and broke a couple of ribs, wrecked the front rim and had to run(late for a camping trip) the 2 miles home(I was goofing around in the field on my way home from work one day). I still feel the ribs once in awhile and that was 7 years ago.

My one mountain biking accident happened on the first day of summer after my freshman year of high school and was caused by a deep rut at the bottom of a relatively short but steep hill. I was trying to impress my riding buddy by not using my brakes on the way down. I hit the rut and that's about the last thing I remember before waking up with a concussion about 30 seconds later. Upon hitting the rut, the handlebars ripped from my hands and turned 90 degrees. My head/helmet smashed into one side of the handlebars, and my collarbone hit the column, causing a hairline fracture. My friend said I was totally out of it and was babbling nonsense as we walked the biked back the mile or so to my house.

I'm really glad I was wearing a helmet.

Mine, I was riding with a friend on the bike path up near the river here that leads to a park... a medium sized dog ran out in front of me, went to take a bite out of my buddy, it got a bit freaked out at something and took off in front of me again... hit it doing about 35km/h... luckily I'd just gotten the bike and didn't have toeclips installed yet, I went over the bars, landed on my palms and elbows and remember thinking to myself "wow, my sunglasses are really flying far.. I must... OH **** THAT HURTS!"

Had a fine wrist sprain and my arms looked like someone had spit chewed gristle out on their plate... but I rode home the 4km or so in 7th gear with my arms up.

I took the biggest beating of my adult life from something named "Elmo" - how sad is that?

One time when I was a kid, one of the playing cards I put in my spokes came loose.

I had to pull over and reattach it.

Sometimes I still wake up in the middle of the night, sit bolt upright drenched in sweat, realizing that my bike took on the tone of a YZ250 instead of an RM250.

To this day, I don't put cards in my spokes.


Shudder.

Future Honda riders don't put cards in their spokes.

Are you sure you hadn't followed me down the hill That sounds exactly like my fall. I was going down a hill and there was some pathway construction happening. I hadn't noticed the drainage ditch that was dug into the bottom area of the hill.....SPLAT!CRUNCH! and a few other Batman sounds.
