Singletrack Cyclocross

I'm tossing around the idea of heading to the Ft. Yargo Cyclocross race this Sunday so I figured I'd better dust the cobwebs off the cross bike and take it out for a spin. I rode over to Blankets and did a couple of laps on the Dwelling Loop. While the Dwelling Loop isn't exactly a challenging trail, I found new appreciation for fat tires and front suspension. Gears too, since its pretty challenging to shift while your hands are constantly on the top mount brake levers. Unfortunately I got a blister on my right hand from all the bouncing around...maybe I'm just getting old.
