    Excellent ride yesterday, but MY GOD the mechanical issues... lol! Broken chains, slipping seatposts, moving dropouts and a broken saddle (yup, that was me.... calm down, it was 4 years old). I'm really getting tired of breaking $hit on my bike every single time I ride... the upside is, at least I'm breaking the bike and not breaking me! Anyway, perfect weather, I mean perfect son.... I don't think the temp got over 85 by the time we went to the Tilted Kilt @ 12. The trail was very dry... coulda used some much needed rain the day before but I ain't complainin'! Hope to see a bunch of you Wednesday @ Hammy... and bring lights!

    It's great to see this ride build momentum... we had 10 this time... every Sunday @ 8:30!

    Looks like the weather didn't hold... better luck next week cats.. on the flip side, at least the trails are getting some much needed rain.

    I had every plan to make it out yesterday. alarm was set and i was looking forward to it.

    Then at 5 am the lightning shaking the house woke me up and i saw the downpour. So i turn the alarm off and slept in instead.

    Hopefully next week.

    Drive time's going to be about equal with going to Nashville. You'd exit I-40 at Hwy. 109, right to Gallatin, left on 109 Bi-pass, left at first light, left at 3-way stop, straight to end, right into gravel drive to silo. That's the trail head.

    Hey guys - I lost a blue TLD glove in the parking lot this afternoon. If you see it in the morning, can somebody please snag it for me - ideally one of the H'ville / Gallatin locals (Lance if he makes it would be great). Otherwise, I'm going to try and make it to the Hammy ride this week, so I could pick it up from somebody there. Thanks for the help.
