Here's a little video I put together of my friend Erika hitting some stunts at Black Rock, OR. She lives in Bend, and this was shown (without her prior knowledge!) with several other local films at the Bend Bicycle Film Festival last Friday.

I had some short video clips shot on my point-and-shoot camera from this trip to Black Rock a year and a half ago, and I kept telling Erika I was going to put together a video, but somehow never got around to it. Visiting Bend the weekend before last and finding out about this film fest was just the incentive I needed. The video clips I had were pretty short and low-res, so I was trying to figure out how I could present them in a DVD format that didn't look like crap... this is what I came up with.

Here's the direct link... let's see if I can get this youtube embedding to work:

While on my way to the trailhead with the triple crown, and 2.7 tire on my bike hanging off the tailgate, I saw theses guys. It don't matter how you roll as long as you have a good time.

^^^It took me several minutes just to pull out of my driveway today with all those bikes going by! The riding here is going to be awesome for the next few days before the trails turn back to dust (and then it will still be awesome - just dusty). Anyone want to rally Downieville sometime soon?

I just discovered the riding in the Galena area (Reno)
It's x-country stuff but soooo sick and conditions are epic right now.

That's where I get married on Saturday

Hopefully it stops raining at least for that one day

A bit of a proud papa moment here to share some mtb stoke. We picked up one of those push bikes for my son at the Sea Otter. He's been working on it for the last two months. Last weekend we hit a little 1/2 mile, completely flat, dirt trail that is on the way to a real ride. It was his first MTB mission. He's been working on his manuals too after watching dad do a couple wheelies in front of the house. 20 mo's old and rolling tough. Proud papa for sure...

I want to find a partner/s who is/are willing to do 3 runs at Downieville.
Big Boulder>3rd Divide
Pauley Creek>3rd Divide
Butcher Ranch>3rd Divide.

I've tried this several times, but can't seem to find anyone who is fast enough to ride with the perfect timing necessary to catch all the shuttles or who is willing to ride that much in one day.
I've got several 3 day 'weekends' (Mon,Tue,Wed - my weekend) coming up.

Who wants some?

Is anyone going to Northstar to ride bikes this weekend? I am thinking about going.

^^^You mean to tell me one one of the burliest uphill chargers on a board doesn't pedal uphill?! I'll be riding the other side of the hill under my own power, but might poach some of the North* downhills after the lifts are closed if I can time it right.

Hit N* yesterday with a few friends (including BC Mex.) We were really hoping for that rare tacky day. The dust was nowhere near normal conditions but it wasn't as magical as we thought it might be. Didn't matter though, we had a blast and it was fun to get some time on the DH bike. I was also surprised how uncrowded it was. I thought it might be a mess on opening weekend, but no issues. Not sure how great that is for the park though...

Hope Toads was fun if you hit that. Definitely a classic that never gets old...
