  • Recent hill climb with Stevyo. Up about 1200ft in 5 miles, including a brutal push up a hill known as 'pinnacle'.

    Here's Steveyo finishing Pinnacle.


    Here's us at the start of our ride. I'm on a 36er guni and Steve on a 29er guni. The gears were fun on the down hill.


    a few more picts up here.

    And ride stats from the GPS here.

      Don't sell us short, Ro. It's a 1400' gain. What a pleasure to have the guni on the descent. Last time we pedaled our legs off down the hill. This time it was just a comfy (fast) cruise. Also, Ro didn't mention, but over half the descent was off road. Fun, fun, fun.

              Nice pic. Did they actually ask you anything in the end? - they do look very interested...

              Oh, and Aspen Mike - you're making us all very jealous. Amazing views as always.

                  Thank's for the laughs guys for all the contributions.

                  Oh yeah, they were sure interested. I could hear a low pitched discussion going on behind me and when I turned around they wanted to know if I was going to ride it, did I make it - and the brake seemed to particularly take their fancy - "Wow, it's even got a brake Doris"

                              They look longer than 8 feet to me. Many hardware stores sell 10' or 12' lumber.

                                I'm fairly sure they were about 10' I can't remember how many cm were marked out on them but I think it was close to 350-ish.
