Solstice Ride!

This Tuesday will be our annual solstice ride.   Meet up at the bike shop at 5:30. There IPA a strong chance that we won't be back to OB by kitchen by close time so be prepared.  LIGHTS ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED.

Bike Shots from Lyons Outdoor Games

The fun started Friday night with the Yellow Designs stunt team and a fantastic demo show on Railroad Ave.

Sat day was mostly kayaking stuff and a 5k fun run Dash and Bash in the middle. I worked. Later Saturday, though, we got a baby sitter to attend the L.O.G. party at the Oskar Blues party barn. That was some fun times. So fun, in fact that I was hanging pretty hard today.

Nothing helps a hanging more than the hair of the dog that bit me. In this case it was the L.O.G. dirt jump contest. I was in the shop so I missed out on the pumptrack contest action, but I heard it was a pretty good time. The dirt jumpers went off. Big time. I didn't get a shot of it, but someone pulled off a no hander backflip. Damn, that's some mad skills right there. Here's a few action shots.

Random Monday Ride Shots

Here's a few random shots from my Monday Funday exploration ride. STILL finding new terrain not a days drive away :) Stay tuned, I'll be putting a deathmarch together on a lot of this terrain. Clue - to put the whole loop together we're going to have to wait a while for some snow to melt...

Tight and twisty

Steep, loose, and rocky

Narrow singletrack

Technical streamside maneuvers



Steep sidehill action

Yep, all the way down there.

The other side of the slot

BIG views.

Yep, stay tuned for a DMD production coming later this summer. Expect some hiking ;)

Tuesday Ride!

Going to Jamestown this Tuesday. Finally. Feels like we haven't been there in ages - I haven't been there since Big Fall Ride last year. Anyways, bring lights and maybe a dry pair of socks ;) It's going to be a late one. Meeting at the bike shop at 5:30. If anyone wants to meet up in Jamestown, well, we'll be there at some point after 5:30.
