Solo ride on the first day of spring at Raccoon Mountain outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee. It is sixteen miles of singletrack with incredible views of the Tennessee River Gorge. Sure beats working!

Great day hitting the trails of Big Bear, California. This sums it up. Thanks to Erik MacPherson and Perfecto De Castro for an awesome time.
