    I know Lph will agree with me, especially about the last part.
    I love how it says .098 miles on the trail sign.

    Sooo, did Lph have an "issue"? Let's hear about it.

    Thunder Mountain is definitely on my to-do list. So is a nap.

    Yes, he was pissed off at the liars who made that sign...VERY pissed off...in fact, he was so mad he was giggling like a little schoolgirl. I mean, when a full grown man giggles like that, you know it's bad.

    Took the new camera out to hood river a weekend or two back. Here are a few I took before I realized that forgetting to take the polarizer off + low light = blurry riders.

    That hood river stuff looks fun.

    Didn't get much riding done this weekend.

    But I did build a sweet new rack for the bikes.

    One from yesterday.



    A crappier shot from today.


    Shortly after heard a loud *snap* sound. On the bike. Couldn't find anything, so rode on. No noise. A few minutes later, my drive side crank arm fell off. Oops. Never broke a crank bole before. A ride ender ~ 1/3 into what I'd planned for the day. Had a beer, went home and replaced the snapped bolt. Same cranks on two bike, so figured it'd be good to have a spare bolt kicking around in the parts bin...

    Emigrant Trail on Fri



    Rest on the TRT from Brockway Summit to Tahoe City on Sat. Unfortunately the smoke/haze kept us from seeing those clear shots of the lake and surrounding mountains...

    If you change your crank bolts to steel, you wont need a spare.

    Those alloy crank bolts just aren't dependable.
    The coefficent of desireability is inversly proportionate to the degree of availability.

    The spare is steel. Considering it took three years for that one to break though, I'm not too worked up over it.

    It's from an older ride. Haven't taken pics on a ride in a while.

    Today at playtime:

    Nice and smooth LZ on this one. Working up to one a little bigger than this in there, that has a bit of a gap that sketches me out.


    IMO, this would have made a better drop from the rock up top, but then I didn't build the trail. Or maybe a skinnier skinny instead.


    A side line - up the backside, then down the nose of the rock - right back onto the main trail.


    Lotsa more good stuff in this area. It'll take some more exploring for me to figure out all the various loops and connections.

    Great thread and great shots!

    Lovin' Scrublover's first pic - we have alot of that kind of stuff here too (and riding it with fully rigid = pretty cool in my book, heh)

    Here's a few ones I shot recently. I was riding solo this time, so no action shots...







    Some more and bigger pics (just click on the pic) and a short descpription of the location can be found here: http://homeboyski.com/2008/06/12/mou...inola-finland/

    (The post was quite unfinished as I was really busy...if someone REALLY is interested in riding in our country, shoot me a PM )

    Kenosha to Georgia Pass to Keystone to the Bluegrass and Brewfest and back to Kenosha

    I have enjoyed this thread so I thought I would resurrect it with some weekend pics. It was one of the bigger rides I have done in awhile, and so satisfying. 19 hours in the saddle over 2 days.


    On the way back...

    Wifey and I had a wedding to hit south of Boston Saturday. Packed a bike along, and got a couple hours of zooming around the Vietnam trails kinda-sorta on the way home today.

    The object of my ongoing obsession, so much so I have been on only a handful of trail rides all summer. I would just rather go dirt jump. A line coming back is in the process of being built.
    Oh, and this is in a city park, built by people hired by the city.



    Only have the pano because I'm pretty much the only one there when I go. I guess the dirt jump crowd doesn't like early mornings.

    Oh, wait, I did get this shot. My only company on a perfect Saturday morning..
