Someone started a 2012 photo thread on MTBR which was received well, with lots of people joining in. Riding season has pretty much begun and I figured I would start a little something here for the Monkeys this year.

Riding scene is alive and well down here in Atlanta. Pics are from the past month or so, and all photo credits go to Ross Monckton. I'm on my DHR in the first 4 photos, other riders are various locals. All pictures are at the same location, a local trail centre that has given us a "FR/DH" section that we are able to build as we please so long we follow the rules. Very appreciative of this. Extensive all-mountain/enduro type trails around here as well if thats your flavour.

Sweet pictures. Wish I was there. Just lots of this for 2013 so far. Heading to extended warmer weather in a few days though, without the 25c's. Fun.

Dirt jumper at the bmx track looks fun, have an ABA certified track not far from me. Used to have a SE Racing Floval Flyer, 24" cruiser bmx. Lots of fun, might have to get another or a DJ

Lucky you, we are still riding on snow.
Couple of months old photo, but there is still lots of snow.

Hey atleast youre still getting out on the bike! Much better than boarding or skiing ;) haha not serious. I for one, have never snowboarded or skied. Although I do have a riding buddy who has been an avid boarder for his whole life, and just recently got himself a SB66 a year ago. He has come to say he enjoys biking more, the riding, the whole scene in general just gets him more stoked so he says. Could be due to no longer living in Denver, and its all so new. But still, I think its awesome to see people have so much fun that they "convert" hobbies.

Yes it is, that's why we have spent more time digging the track after each snowfall than actually riding :)
haha right on. I don't have the pleasure of knowing real mountains or snow, but I imagine both have their charms. I would much rather give up an all year riding season, in order to get some more elevation in exchange for a snowy off season. All I do know is I love riding my bike, I love working on my bike, I love staring at my bike, and I love just talking bikes in general. Thats normal, right?

From last week, has been a hell of a winter with snow melting in mid feb resulting in somewhat icy conditions:pilot: (think luge track and your not far off). So ice and 4'' frozen ruts has given me a new perspective on what is rideable and not. Tried once just to stand on the track feet pointing downhill, started to accelerate pretty fast.

That's completely normal :)

We don't have real mountains or much elevation neither, we just have snow here in Finland. Luckily that means that many small hills have a ski lift around here, and more and more of them operate in the summer as well nowadays.
