Thanks a bunch for holding it. I'll be by on Friday to pick it up.

Thanks, Rich, for finding a temporary home for that ratty, old pack.

A Little Sample

I've sorted my 600+ roadtrip photos down to one hundred. Here are a few, random items, starting with a group photo from the monster slickrock slab at the top of the Ribbon, followed by some pure randomness from the Clunker Crit..

Eric Has Three More Inches Than You

Eric has three more inches than you. And he knows how to use them.

In the first photo he's drinking all the beer and telling me and Ray lies about his riding and how great the Ribbon Trail is. In the second photo, he's making all our dreams come true. And in the third photo, Francis is proposing marriage.

Some pics from many of my holy rides,

Back to work for me. I hope everyone had a safe trip home. The festival is always to long but then it's to short once all the friends head home. Sorry I missed the whole mtbr gang but that how it goes. So very much going on and It's hard to see all.

Some pics from the holy cross

Breaker 1-9

"Francois got yer ears on?"

I tried y'all on the CB but no luck. But I did have a conversation with a trucker about a bloody car wreck, so that was nice.

the mtbr crew musta been just a day or so on our tail....Gooseberry, Moab, Fruita. I imagined them picking up some dirt on the trails and smelling it..."Hmmm....Hollywood was here not long ago". Long road trips have that effect.

Big thanks to everyone involved with FFTF. My first time and I'll be sure to return. (Note to self: Don't drink from the Surly crew's flasks next time. Or stumble into the Jericho Dome. I found myself laughing at dirt about an hour later).

Thanks to Hfly for the groovy cd. I was too escared to ride his secret Moab ride...puss.

Where the H was Ken in KC??? huh punk?

Threading boulders at Gooseberry


Ditto on Porcupine Rim


PorcRim awaits


Does your LBS have live music, freshly brewed espresso and sweet bikes? OTE in Fruita does, so pfffft.


Home Sweet Home at Fruita's "H Motel". I realized the "H" stands for "Ho" after our neighbors invited some "company" over to their room. *shudder*


Fruita!

May 3 Report:
Tue May 3 -- travel from Hurricane to Moab (5 - 6 hours, 340 miles),ride Porcupine Rim Trail

Porcupine Rim... we hear this is the premier ride in Moab. Shuttle ride too. Cool! Rally, the shuttle dog escorts us in the van and bounces from lap to lap. Kyle, our driver turns on the windshield wipers and Rally jumps to the dashboard to chase down the wipers. When we reach the top and the van doors open, Rally looks for the biggest rock on the lot and proceeds to bark at it and knock it around. Yeah, we like Rally.


Rally the shuttle dog in action

Porcupine starts with a 1000 foot technical climb. Just as the FS bike starts to be a drag, a vista point appears and rewards the rider with spectacular views. If there is a better place to take a food break, we haven't found it yet. The ride then proceeds to a fun and technical fire road. It is filled with rocks, drops, jumps and chutes.

Beauty!

That first Porcupine Rim photo is a winner. Great angle and awesome compressed space. That's the photo I've wanted to take of that section. It's awesome.

Thanks from the UK

Back at work in London life already looks pretty grey.
But what a great week.
Riding the best trails. Meeting such good folk. Drinking lots of beer and eating Mexican almost all week. Looking at the helmet cam footage I shot out there already makes me want to go back.
Thanks to Troy and the gang for such a good event ,thanks to all the cool folk from Minnesota, Surly and everyone I met and rode with.

In fact, we rubbed shoulders at the party on Thursday and didn't realize it. I was the drunk guy drinking 1554. Pete mentioned that you were there, but I never could find you and my attention span was somewhat limited as I was focused on other things that night.

Hey Philip,

I think you were one of the guys that had dinner with us (Cynthia and Dave) at the mexican restaurant on Saturday night. Can you name the rest of the guys that were on the trip? Sorry, I'm horrible at remembering names and there was so many of you. We had a great time hanging out and talking with you guys. Wish we'd had the opportunity to ride and hang out more with you guys.

Hello Dave, that was us.
Im rubbish with names as well. I was one of the 2 brothers (the taller one) Andrew was the other one, you rode with Dean, Seb and Adam, and Phil was the 6th man in the group. It was really cool to meet you guys. It made me think how much good stuff in common Ive got with loads of good folk, wherever they are from.

Hope Boulder looks prettier than London does right now.
It cant be hard.

Thanks, Philip.

Yeah, mountain biking brings together a lot of great people from all over.

As far as Boulder weather.... It is sunny and mid 70's here, but we're expecting snow by Thursday. :confused: Go figure! Weather here is usually very dynamic, but they say Colorado has over 300 days of sun per year. This year has been especially strange. I think you Brits must have brought something over with you. ;)
