    Geez people learn how to ride!:rolleyes: :ouch:




    ;)

    Last week i had a funny crash. There's an elevated stretch of trail that is built on a skinny bunch of whoops. It's actually pretty techy... Either side slopes if you go off the trail you're falling 5 to 10 feet into bushes. A tiny garter snake was on the crest of one of the whoops, at the last second i turn my front wheel and try to skirt the side of the spine, off the trail and upside down i slowly unclip, get off the back of my head by kicking my legs over from above me. Crawl back up and fetch that stupid snake that was sunning itself and put it on a stump off the side of the trail.

    That broken finger picture is nasty. Figures that I had to see that too, I have a phobia of broken fingers since each of my ring fingers has fallen victim about 3 times a piece.

    When rescuers found the missing rider, they were quite surprised to see that she had taken the old woodsman's adage 'when you're lost, hug a tree' so literally.

    One of the perks of riding alone is that nobody can see pics of me eating it all over the internet...However it sure is fun looking at pics of other people eating it.

    Man - I'm only in here once........I'm sure there are about 10 or so more of me on my ass or landing on my noggin somewhere.

    In fact, my shoulder hurts still from when I took that bad digger last year around this time during the MMcG Freedom ride. :(

    I remember that day. If I remember she f'd her shoulder up that day. I was never caught crashing, will make sure to be in the future, I did draw blood, but that is it though.
