N+1 = ideal number of bikes to own
A common understanding amongst bike enthusiasts, this simple math equation holds true as gospel for many who ride.
Mathematically, I’m increasingly convinced I would be well-served adding a proper gravel bike as a companion to my current mountain bike. Doing so will allow me to better explore and venture deeper into forest roads.
It’s just simple math really.
It’s been all cowbells and cow pies since this gang moved into the neighborhood.
Located on the west side of the Grand Teton Mountains, I’ve continually heard great things about the mountain bike riding at Grand Targhee Resort.
Unlike many resort bike parks, Grand Targhee and the immediate surrounding area offer many cross-country (XC) trails, which compliment the downhill (DH) specific trails. As a general rule, I’m definitely a big fan of XC riding and was excited to explore the area.
A couple days of of mostly smoke-free riding at Grand Targhee has been a blast. Yesterday was XC heaven while today I cheated and rode chairlifts to the top for numerous DH runs.
I was really impressed with this small town resort and highly recommend the area. I cannot wait to get back (likely next summer) for an extended stay and lots more riding throughout the broader Teton Valley.
It was smooth sailing through the border crossing Sunday morning.
With quick stops in Kalispell and Missoula (Montana) ahead of today’s arrival to our current (west) Grand Tetons location, I doubt we will have any problems re-acclimating to quiet, spacious, and free camping.
But we won’t know for sure until we give it a try.
In the meantime, I’ll continue efforts unwinding my mind off the metric system.
