Damn, Renie takes such good pictures. I really like "Rock Garden 061R.jpg". And she even prints them out on the computer and by the end of the ride, you are carrying home a set of pics! Thanks Renie!

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it out for this ride as I will be in Orlando, but I look forward to the next one Adam. That trials playground you found is sweet. I can spend a few days of riding at just that one spot

Adam I too am coming off an injury and it sucks. I sprained my right ankle at Motorama and wasn't able to walk on it for more than a week. I have to start wearing Active Ankles now for awhile to prevent reinjury.

Have fun guys!

Being unable to ride due to injury kills the brain!!

Get well soon.

See you next time.

A big thanks from Renie and no problem with the pic's. We look forward to getting some more great action shots.

Adam

Now I'm ready for some Bagels and Coffee at Adam & Renies.

Thumbs up Great Day, Great ride!!

Thanks for coming everyone!

The weather couldn’t be better!

We had 7 riders for the first ride of the season on a day they forecasted rain (not a drop in the 5 hours of riding).

4 of our riders yesterday where new to the group and proved to be a great addition.
This ride was the first ride in which we had more than 1 Coker Muni rider besides myself, we had 3 this time and it proved to be awesome!!

Riders
Me
Jeff (Shibumi)
Gregg Vivolo (Ride The Unicycle.com)
Mike Menichini
Joe (NJ)
Joe (NJ)
Sam (NJ)

3 riders who come to most of our rides planned to make it yesterday (Dan Lee, Adam Lee and friend) but didn’t due to the inability of our forecasters to predict the weather. So they didn’t take the chance to come from Connecticut. Guy’s call me with any question next time (516) 702-9807.

For the riders who couldn’t make it, we hope to see you for our next ride 4/29/06. I will post more info regarding that ride within the next few days.

It's a special day. Lots of people to introduce to the sport of MUni!
There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony for the trails we ride. The ceremony is for the new interpretive signs along the trails. There will be dozens of mountain bikers along with Cannondale and other manufacturers as well as politicians from the local area.
I am checking on the opportunity for some trials features.
It will be a great opportunity for us (unicycling community) to show everyone the real way to have fun.

Here are some pictures from one spot we stopped to play!

Have Fun!!

Adam

Hello Adam,
Sounds/looks like everyone had a great time.

I really must get to one of these rides, very soon.

Glad the weather worked out so well for you all.

stopping by to recommend FOX leg armor. They're similar to 661s (which a friend owns, allowing me to compare), except they have solid plastic knee guards. I've never had any slipping problems, and they fit to the knee much more solidly than the bendy 661 leg bit. The rest is petty much the same as a 661.

(p.s. - I'm jealous of all the fun you guys had!)

Thanks for the suggestion!
I happened to pick up a pair of Fox 911's. I just started riding with them. They seem to be a good step up in protection from the 661's. I feel more comfortable.
They tend to slip down my leg a little as did the 661's.
The best leg armor isn't the best if it doesn't fit properly.
The only problem I have is finding the right armor to fit properly.

Adam

I've been too busy to post until now, but I wanted to thank Adam and Renie for another great ride! Especially to Renie for walking all that way throught the trails, while in the family way. Of course she also drove back to the house to have our "take home" pictures ready for when we returned. Better than a photomat.

Alas, i will finally have to miss the next ride, my first time. I have a family function to attend. Too bad for me. I will have to live it through the pictures I guess.
