$30 bucks for a day and your dog gets socialized and then comes home and sleeps like a rock. Or at least mine does. Perfect for an all day ride to the
Hall of Fame Epic Brown County State Park.

Orbea Alma Hydro 29er. Built it up this year and so far so good. Has shorter chainstays so on really steep climbs the front end will pop up every once in a while. Otherwise, handles very well.

Working on a new project and found that I need a 140 mm Avid clean sweep disc rotor to go along with a road specific BB7 brake. Anyone have one laying around?

The new bike seems to have worked out for you.

Trails were looking good yesterday during my pre-ride after the short track race A few wet spots, but overall very good riding.

How're things looking for the race on Saturday?

France Park in Logansport is about 30 minutes away up US-35. It has the foundations for a trail system in place and could probably benefit from a motivated group of riders who would want to make improvements.

Westwood was good today. The tread was perfect. One muddy spot and that was all. The weeds were mostly good. The section on the east side between the power line crossing and the floating bridge was getting rough with low honeysuckle, etc. Wished I had brought my mini clippers along with me. The grass in some of the open areas (along the Big Dig, power line crossing and the upper part of the dam) was getting long as well.
I did notice a few reroutes where I could see new bench cutting done. Interesting to see technique differences between the original trail (built about 10 years ago?) and the reroutes.
Overall a great ride and workout.

Any updates? Thinking about making a return trip to Westwood tomorrow morning for the first time in 3 years.

According to weather.com, temps in Nashville tomorrow should hit 71 degrees with a SSW wind at 17. I would think these conditions will help everything dry out nicely for Sunday.
And to steal Fett's post from the racing forum, below is the link for registration. https://www.bikereg.com/drt-brown-county-state-park-point-to-point

Cool! I'll make sure to get out for a few of these. Always a fun, and often, humbling time. And Dave is right, this will give your fitness a nice boost.
On another short track front, does anyone have any contacts at Marian University? It would be cool to have a break off week where short track is held on their course at the Cycloplex. I think they had a college race there last year. Could be a neat evening to have track racing, bmxing, and short track MTB racing all going on at once.

In other news, bar ends have made a comeback and are now the must have fashion item for mountain biking in 2014 per a recent poll by a distinguished mountain biking periodical.
