This is a blog for a group of outdoor-oriented NYC-area residents to post thoughts and pictures on the latest weekend mountain bike outings. As a group, we've discovered that we're lucky not only live in or near an amazing city, but also to have access to an amazing variety of natural scenery. Biking happens to be the way our group accesses our natural surroundings. Hope this inspires the reader to 'get out there'! - Carl Kulo (blog creator)

March 21, 2010: Mianus River Park

Finally, a great day to return to the trails and not worry about damaging them. I was happy to still have power in my legs after having ridden 87 road miles the previous day (New Hope, PA ride with NYCC). I rode with three others from the Tri-state mountain bike meet-up group; pictured above are, from left to right, myself, Bert, Antionette, and Stephan (aka "Team SDK"). Except for numerous blowdowns from recent storms (that had played havoc on that part of Fairfield County the prior weekend) the trails were dry and fast. Several water crossings added to the challenge.

Stephan in particular displayed amazing technical skills, especially as he bombed-down some drops with relative ease.
