Back on the Dirt

After finally getting my bike fixed, I am back on the dirt. It felt great!

After ripping off the rear derailleur, demolishing the hanger and doing a bit of damage on dropout while I was Just Riding Around, I finally got my bike into the shop for the necessary repairs. For a variety of reasons, I didn't get it into the shop very quickly, so it has been a while since I heard the sound of my tires on the dirt.

I have been able to get out and do some road rides while waiting to get my mountain bike issues resolved, but it is not the same thing. It was fun riding fast and going farther but I really missed being out on the trail and the quietness, the plants and the animals. Looking ahead for trail changes is quite a bit different than looking for cars all the time.

In spite of the fixes there is still some more overdue maintenance that I need to do. Maybe this is a good time to start looking more seriously for a new bike.
