Fear not dear readers. The Peddler is still here!

Just busy as all gitout! Haven't had much time to post up here. Busy at the shop. Busy riding. Busy with life. Its amazing what warmer weather brings with it in terms of stuff to do. Especially for the person who likes to be outside. Like me.

Anyways, lately, I've hit up Blue Mound State Park for a good ride. And it hit pretty hard. For those who live with in a two hour drive, it is well worth hitting up BM for a lap or two. Lots of rocks. Lots of trees, and lots of wonderous hard single track. It is certainly NOT a place for the faint of heart, or thin on experience.

Then there's the trails at Sidie Hollow near Viroqua. Smooth, sinuous and flowy. Kind of the opposite of BM. And damned if they weren't just as fun. They built a new trail there that climbs from the lower campground up to the top. Generally its hard to call a climb fun. This one is. Its just flat out enjoyable. Challenging, tight, switch-backy and down right pretty. So cool. Got some good stories about yesterdays ride there, but it'll have to wait till later.

Gotta go home now. Pictures later too! Promise!

Blue Mound?! You're dangerously close to my back door now, dude. You've got a place to crash (har) and a spot in the paceline (Weds nite and Sat a.m.) if you ever make it a little further east than BM.
