    Thanks for the video, Dave!
    Wow, I didn't realize you were behind us for so long.


    Not our best showing, but it didn't look nearly as ugly and sloppy as I had feared it would. Whew.
    Matt was riding pretty conservatively, trying to avoid hurting me (more).
    I was in so much pain, I could barely keep my foot on the peg.
    Every bounce and jolt was agony and it really messed up my balance.
    I'm not usually such an awkward sack of potatoes. :cry


    It was fun to see the video, we appreciate you taking the time to put that together and post!
    Also, thank you for not discouraging us from taking the big bike on your trails,
    I know it must have been difficult, but I hope you saw that we try hard not to tear them up.

    Hopefully we will ride with you again some day, maybe on something more open...:D
    The rest of your loop (with the scenic lookouts) sounds pretty great.

    p.s. thanks, Joel, it's getting better.

    Thanks for sharing your GREAT videos Dave!!! :thumb :clap Is that a Contour or what under your visor?
    I like that perspective better than gopro+mount on top of helmet.

    That was IMPRESSIVE to watch Jordan, Bartek, & Matt ride that singletrack so confidently! Especially
    along 1st Divide! :eek1 Gentlemen, Well DONE!!! :ricky



    Hi Kelly! I hope you will be riding again soon :-)
