My recommendation is that if you don’t live in the high country, you should just drive to the high country and rent. The conditions are usually good, or perfect on groomed trails, and you can get a chance to ride a lot of different high-end fatties.
Another issue I have with Facebook is the image I’m projecting of Steve. I know my passion for cycling, hiking, tropical fish, chess, etc is sometimes overwhelming for most of my FB friends so I hold back on the stats, the trip reports, pictures of my toys, my fish, my chess games, etc, but after a while I look at what’s left and I realize it’s not me!
And yes I want to show people that I’m still very much alive and kicking and Colorado is a wonderful place to live, but there’s a fine line between sharing and bragging.
So I find myself sharing things that get the most “likes”, and basically that’s pictures of my family and pets. Most people don’t “like” any pure text that I share, but that’s probably because it doesn’t get people’s attention like the pictures and posters.
