I'm uploading the video now, but the actual road on the way up to the hill was BRUTAL! Huge ruts and very overgrown. Ask Larry's knee. Much fun to be had though. On the way to lunch in Peoria we happened upon this wonderful little "lane."







Steiner Ranch is a definite keeper!



Whitneymike has the road dialed in! He's been "up close and personal" with it before, ha!

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

After lunch in Peoria at a great Mom & Pop Burger joint it was off to the hill, a hop skip and a jump?





The road is easy to miss it's so grown over and is very little used'



Larry needed coaxing.

I just saw this. It's old news now I guess but it's still awesome.



Next up! Pics from the weekend.



Artsy? Or just GoPro fail?

Next, lots of little rocks scattered around.







Moar.



And lastly, but certainly not least, Mudclod attacks!

I did that filmed section on KilLeR the weekend before but when I reached the bottom of Arkysaw Hill the fact I was alone crept into my consciousness and turned me around. So I did it again.

Oh yeah, I wheelied up that the other day too. Then I rode just the front wheel on the way back down. Later that day I scaled Mount Everest in some shorts, tank top, and flip flops too. It was a good day...

Hardeeharhar. The bottom section is rutty and nasty but the hill is the only part that gave me any real pause. And it was more of a dead stop than a pause. ;)
