Nice riding. I was going to be really impressed if you were in high on that last shot. I still haven't gotten the hang of big air in high.

Yes, low gear does feel like super-granny after riding in high!

My first drop in high was done at pretty good speed, and on video. you can see it here at 1:15. I love drops but I want to keep 'em well under the recommended 4 foot max. I want my "Schlumpfy" to last as long as possible!

I'll be looking forward to a video of you climbing Fargo St. in high hear .

Good to have this facility open again after such a long closure. If anyone in Melbourne is interested in having a ride around here they should let me know - we might be going back in a weekend or two.

My first latest ride shot

On Labor Day weekend here in the States, my wife and I went back to Alameda, Calif., to visit friends in our old neighborhood. I took a morning ride that Monday (a U.S. holiday) along the shoreline of San Francisco Bay. I'd had many a bicycle ride there in the 90s. It was great to roll along on just one wheel this time.

Vanuni managed to get 11 people out on Mt. Fromme today. Fortunately the rain held off, however all the wood structures were really slippery. I should have some video put together soon.

Haha, right on Cody! Noble C is one of my favorite trails! Did you guys do the shuttle? Last time I rode it, (solo) I started at 12 miles up, and there was snow everywhere, and then it was like summertime at the bottom! I also jumped off that same HUGE rock! (Different angles make it look different, but I'm sure it's the same one.)

Please don't reply to spam, and if you do, never quote the spam. It's makes it harder to delete. Just report it and wait for it be deleted.

Not much of a picture, but I rarely get one of me actually riding.
This was from a group ride with some people from my office (all on bikes) last weekend at the Hiawatha rail-trail. I did the ride on my Schlumpf, currently on a 26. Most of it was really cruiser, but riding in high gear was quite challenging in the long, dark tunnels, because I felt like I was just flying down a black hole.
More info on the ride here: http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/sho...light=hiawatha

While riding the local trail on my G26er, and going downhill on narrow single track at a good clip, I just missed running this little guy over! He was stretched out right across the trail and looked like a skinny little tree branch, so I was going to just go over it as usual!

Then, at the last second I realized it was a gopher snake, and I was mere feet away, coming right at it in high gear. There was no way to stop that fast, and I couldn't go left or right, so I just bailed off the back and stopped just in time! I took a few pics and took him back into the brush and let him go.
