OT: anyone for 2 wheels but no motor?

Postby dals3 » Sat Oct 01, 2011 6:30 am

Any MTB, road bike, bmx, etc???

I used to ride bmx way more than MTB but it was beating me up so bad (concrete and 40+ year old bodies with mx knees and other mx-related injuries just don't mix after a while). Man miss it though.

I'll try to load up some bmx stuff later, but here are a few pics from rides that are minutes from my house:

Lots of switchbacks:

...this. Big bike guys that are young and brave come off the ramp drop. I'm old, on an XC bike, and broken...I opt to ride down the rock face. It's a little steeper than it appears in the pic:

This is the very bottom of the rock face:

Previous pic leads to this section of fast, bermed, single track....

You've go to stop and enjoy the scenery while you're there!

I love mtn biking!Great workout,and cross training tool and good for the knees. Lot's of trails around here that will never be closed down! We don't have the stuff you guys have, but we make due. I've got a Giant Warp with fully adjustable Rockshox Tora's. It's sweet having a bicycle with fully adjustable front and rear suspension

I doubt it. That appears pretty fucking steep to me! :eek:

Me and a few of the boys around here love to MTB and we have a couple of decent spots, but nothing like that. It looks awesome out there.
A friend of mine lives on the island and is into it pretty good. I'll have to pack up my shit and fly out and visit before I get too old.
Man up, grab some sack and go for the triple!

Nice. All good, boys. I'll make sure you guys are taken care of if you ever want to come out here. We've got lots of room at my place and we can do any type of terrain/skill level you're interested in.
