Fall Riding

As I write this it is near 80 degrees outside! The weather this week is going to be simply amazing! I hope you are having a chance to get out and enjoy it. My ride yesterday was simply perfect.

I like riding in the fall for many reasons, the cooler weather, the changing colors. More importantly I use it as an excuse to change up my rides. I try new routes, like I did yesterday. On cooler days I get on my mountain bike to avoid the added wind chill of the road. My rides seem more relaxed this time of year, likely because I am taking in all of the scenery. Many of the staff are changing up their riding habits by really getting into cycle cross racing. John, Nathan and Michelle all have been racing on a regular basis.

How do your riding habits change in the fall season? I’d love to hear from you about it. Drop me an e-mail.

I just love the fall. While it is an ending to so many things in nature I feel it is a new beginning in so many ways of my life. I hope to see you on the road or trails this fall.

About Ernest

Ernest is the owner of the Crofton Bike Doctor located in the Village of Waugh Chapel Shopping Center. Ernest has been in the industry since 1989 when he first started to work at the Bike Doctor of Arnold. During that time I developed a love for cycling and retail. I graduated from the University of Maryland and live and ride locally.

I enjoy riding off road and on the road as well as doing a little bike touring. As a teenager I did a trip in Maine and then over to Novia Scotia which helped cement my love for riding. Since then I have done tours in the Canyons of Utah as well as several trips along the C&O Canal. Today I have both mountain bikes and road bikes that I enjoy riding. One of the most exciting things now is my wife is beginning to develop a passion for riding and we have begun mountain bike together as well as some light road riding.
