Sounds interesting. Are you going to be riding Orange or Green?

Depends where I go, if it's on the road orange, green if I'm 100% offroad.

That first 15% of that hill was a bitch, huh?

I was fine until I fell over and slid down the hill and had to hike back up it and the muscle a 300# bike around. ;)

The first two shots were attempted in first gear which caused a bit too much wheel spin. The successful third attempt was made in second gear with more traction hook-up.

I may make another video of the rest of the carnage...lol I hung out there about 1/2 hour getting video of all the crashes. I was at bottom of the hill though and everyone looks like they are a mile away using the gopro. May try to zoom in a bit and see how that looks...

Speaking from experience (having taken multiple runs at many a hill), go faster before you get to the hill. If you had carried speed entering the woods and through the left hander before it got steep, you wouldn't have had as much trouble at the top. Accelerating up the hill is the hard way up.

After 3 years away from the dirt I'll get to see if I can still do what I'm talking about at the Baby Burr. I should get a motivational tape tp play while I'm riding, momentum momentum momentum stand up!

lol, sounds like something I should try too.

So swingset is playing in the dirt this weekend? I told sion I'd do the road ride though. :( May have to renege on him though. I'd like to learn a thing or two from swingset... ;)

You won't learn much from me, I'm not that good, and I'm still nursing a pretty sprained up right hand. I can ride ok, but I won't be doing anything daring or stupid.

Usually my lessons consist of "how to remove rear-fender without tools", and "land face down in the only puddle within 100 square yards". It's very instructive tho.

I'd like to do Sion's ride, but I don't have the bike for it anymore.

I need to give some lovin' to my other bikes. The WR is making them all jealous...

I'm addicted to the dirt though....

If you guys are riding trails and not roads let me know when and a place and I might join you guys. Kind of a tune up for the Burr.

Back in O-HI-O

Hi guys!!
I'll be back in Ohio Oct 6-7, leaving sometime on the 8th with the big ass moving truck. I'm trying like hell to figure out when I can try to see my bike peeps one more time.

Rented a place further North than originally intended and a lot further from civilization than Zach intended. (just West of Tioga, TX)

You are all welcome to layover at any time, perhaps as a pit stop to Big Bend.

The great thing about the place is its on a gravel road, so my morning commute will always start with a smile.

Oh, it'll be trails one way or another...question is will there be roads in between 'em. I'm thinking Perry since it's close, free, and isn't too wet this time of year.
