One of my favorite things about mountain biking is you don't have to drive to play.

The options are endless when you leave from home on a bike. What if all possibilities happened at the same time?

This video explores that, replaying several thousand mountain bike rides that started from this Tucson mountain biker's home.



Or, as my girlfriend said as she walked by, "do you have an ant problem in your computer?"

Another way of looking at it is that you leave a trace everywhere you pedal, and indeed glycogen and time -- life -- is burned everywhere you go. Simply by being there, you change what there is, what it becomes. And you change yourself. This video shows the weaving of the 'rich tapestry of life', or my Tucson MTB neural network, at about 250,000x real time.



The lines get darker and thicker the more a route is traced. You can see my favorite trails very clearly. So many rides, so much time and energy well spent. The red lines remind me of blood veins, with my house as the 'heart.' It's fitting since those lines are my lifeblood, a huge part of what drives me, a manifestation of imagination and exploration.

Thanks for watchin'.

again...love the features there. I could see some limitations using it in my case. There's only two short local mtb trails within biking distance. All the others I have to drive to.

I love this.

Awesome post.

This is like going to a seminar....snort snort snort.

Too bad you didn't post this on December 31, then I could legitimately call it most original post of the year. Now you won't believe it.

Very cool:) I wish I could ride from my house but alas, the drivers out here in Vegas would get me sooner or later.

Very cool. I enjoyed watching that. Good thing I'm not an internet axe murderer because now I know right where your house is.:thumbsup:
