CC, that little jump line has evolved a bit since www.bhfattirefestival.com !! We got it extended down that bulldozer cut. That means a couple more good berm/wall rides a step down and another step up. You'll giggle and ride it over and over and over....

Air is air as long as the landing works out, this one didn't end so well.

Sparrow, I'm looking forward to seeing all the work that's been done to the trails out there by you and your crew. I might have something a little more, shall we say...worthy, of the trails out there. And hopefully it won't leave me with a $300+ repair bill this time!!

See ya in a couple of weeks.

happy trails...

The little red tag in the second pic says "Remove Before Flight" I think we forgot!!

yes indeedy doo didily! squish tested the limits of a burner and found them. that landing sounded like a building collapse when he overshot the landing. ouch! however, his skills grew yet again. this trip should give him the opportunity to more than eclipse what hes learned in the last year since thc now that his non burner is on the way.

Been using child slave labor...

... with the return of cool weather, and slower days at the shop, we've been trying to hit back up the "feature of the week". That is, improve or build one drop, jump, skinny, berm, etc a week as long as the weather holds. Fun riding is the result, one feature at a time! Here's a shot of the work crew:

I like yer plan there sparrow, cept round here there aren't any features to build, fix or improve upon, unless you count 3 foot deep ruts in the middle of the trail and a parks and rec dept that won't reroute!! Eh, what can you do.

happy trails...

i thought this weekend was "take a kid riding day", "not enslave our youth month". ya need to update yer shops on line calender. oh, and get the little brat some bigger eqipment. at that rate his labor will only cover 1/2 a bowl of rice a day and i know you could get 3 or 4 times that outta most of em.

Squish, you could make that rut 4 feet deep with a little effort!

CC, yeah, the "take a kid biking" is a rouse to get more, ummm, volunteers conscripted.

We'll stop to shoot many photos when you get out to ride this month.

I'm sitting here bouncing in my seat I'm so stoked for this ride, I just hope my camera will last long enough to get through the trip. It's got issues...

sparrow, I would love to dig that rut deeper, but by the end of next year we'd be riding in china, and the only bikes that would make it down the hill would be that bloody 36er!!

happy trails...
