Finally after living here for over 2 years, I broke my SOMO National trail cherry; I'm addicted! :thumbsup: Damn, it was hot climbing on late Tuesday morn!

No, I didn't ride two bikes and that's the shirt making me look "over fed."

Shame on you for riding such pristine trails in such muddy conditions.:nono:
I can easily see somebody posting in some other forum about how destructive bikes are to the trails. In Colorado, I would hear the same stories about how lame ranchers are for bringing the herd up to the upper meadows during early and late season wet conditions. Sure they have the right to do so, but is it a good idea? Short answer is no!

So core...so self-indulgent...so lame! Have fun replacing all the parts you trashed in your little excursion on the Tax-payers dime. Bad ginger!

Jeez... Have you ever been caught in a storm before? It's going to happen from time to time, no need to get all righteous about it.

That is some serious stem action you got going on there.

Where you there? I see nowhere where the post reads "trails started dry then I got stuck in a storm". Self-righteous? I think not. I have my own demons to contend with and I know that people make mistakes, myself included. It's bad enough to ride trails in those conditions, but then to post pics as if it was some sort of accomplishment...

I see pis of the trails before..now let's see some pics of the trails after said ride was completed.

Were YOU there? I see no where the post reads "trails started wet so I went out anyways." Self-righteous? Probably. Overly assumptive? Absolutely.

No, but I read about it on his FB page. Homie was bike-packing out in the elements on an epic long ride and weather happened. No biggie.
I think you're being a little preachy. Maad is a weather.com junkie, he often schedules time to take a piss around breaks in micro-weather patterns. He will decide what food to pack based on relative humidity: dry weather = 12 inch sub, wet weather = some sort of fru-fru portabello mushroom wrap with kimchi. He obviously chose to ride through death mud. can i negative rep him for this?

I like you. You're funny. And I see your able to come to overly assumptive conclusions as well. Gosh, that makes us have something in common. We're damn near best buddies! How do you feel about that? I feel good, FYI.

I know, I know. How dare I berate MTBR's beloved Maad?!? Well I dare, and I did. So what.

When I asked "Where you there?" to Chongo not you, I was simply asking how he knew about the storm. But my position about posting pics showing the destruction of a trail still holds true.

Spent a few days last week/weekend terrorizing Prescott and Sedona, just your typical MTB trip.

Like our friend here, we were ready to Eff the Ess out of Prescott and then bite its head off.


Ripe for the pillaging.


Ear bud in, bike at hand... Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.


Conquest, upon a steel horse she rides into the apocalypse.


We notice nature not.


Unmindful of our potential danger to innocent 12 year old girls, we attack Sedona.


I came upon a hiker who was looking at the sky, I rolled my bike up to him I said howdy, he said hi.


Because we're on bikes, our eyes are only fixated on our front wheel.


We never look ahead.


Or appreciate a view.


Or observe the passing clouds.


Or the ever changing light show they throw down across the earth.

Thunder begins to rumble in the distance.

We head back to the trailhead.

I ring my bell to alert some hikers up ahead, they move to the edge of the trail for us and as we pass they make a joke about hoping I was the ice cream man. We all laugh.

Thx for the clarification. Maybe I was a bit snappy, maybe not, either way I know stuff happens. I guess this just rang a personal chord, with me and the ranchers, in the days of way back when and I spouted off. My apologies to Maad if I was wrong.
