Rigid Bites...

 I got to go for a quick spin around Bent Creek.  I rode the John Henry which is a 29er.  The bike is smooth and stable.  And while the rigid fork works well on gravel roads and pavement,  it really bites on single track.   It was the least enjoyable ride I have had in a long time.  I gotta find some Suspension Experts and figure out a solution.
It was early and still foggy in spots,   still humid but with the cooler air, it felt good.  Not many people out so it was pretty peaceful.  The above pic looks like something out of a fairy tail story. 

The rest of the day consisted of phone calls, e-mails, cutting the grass for some friends, selling bikes at The Bicycle Thrift Shop, taking the kid to the Great American Hobbies RC track ( a much better experience than the other shop),  and attending the Velosports Racing Team's Ring of Fire,  end of season party.  They hooked Trips For Kids WNC up with a $500 check.   Thanks guys, and thanks Heidi for helping out!
