just wanted to say thanks to all the monkeys (and non-monkeys) who were there for the weekend: some seriously sweet riding and great people. i will definitely be going back up there if i stay around the east coast!

on a seperate note, the bike worked out awesome...it was the rider that crapped the bed. soon, there will be dirt on that bike...i swear.

thanks again guys...and IAB, that pic of Dave and me; i look like i've just been punched in the balls

mmmm. pics! :)
Mmmm Indeed.

Seriously I have three things to say about this weekend...Great trails, great weather and excellent company. Treesaw, thanks for allowing us to join in the horseplay and tomfollery that is Monkeyfest and thanks for setting everything up including the excellent cuisine. Thanks to the regulars for making us feel welcome and for being friendly. I was looking for a couple of words to sum up the weekend and all I could come up with was "F#@% YEAH!".

Thanks again...I'll post the pictures and videos shortly.

Getting ready to ride


Just a few last minute adjustments


View from the upper parking lot


More monkeys join the group


Stretching is a good idea but I am not exactly sure what Gary is doing


Last minute gear check...Andrew seems to be missing lube


I know what Phil is thinking about...flowy singletrack and beer


Nice view


More views from our balcony





Davis crossing a bridge on "Worth It"


Me pulling a wheelie off the end of the bridge on "Worth It"


Soft and loamy singletrack...mmmmm


Sugar shack and Fall foliage


I wish I had an office with a view like this


Davis at the top of "Kitchel"


I could sit down and listen to this all day, man was this peaceful

Awesome pics, one of these days I'll get there...

Way cool that you ran into Jeff from Milford Bikes - if Splat's FSR didn't make the trip, did anyone notice if my RFX did?

Winning.
Looks like you guys had some great riding. Becky and I wanted to say thanks again for letting us join you all at dinner, we had a great time and she enjoyed meeting you all. I thought it was nice to see the regulars and some fresh faces as well.

dave had had a few, but i don't think he was getting belligerant
What, a sampler and 2 pints? That's only 5 pints ... or to put it another way: 2.5 pints for my Aussie half, and 2.5 pints for my British half.
Hardly anything.
*NOW* I'm getting belligerant! ;-)

Absolutely! It was great meeting you & riding (well, trying my hardest to keep up) with you. Hopefully we can all do it again!

Rain. I have reservations at the Village Inn on Friday so they better dry off quickly! :(
I received an e-mail that the trails are closed for the weekend!

From the e-mail: ALL TRAILS CLOSED FOR THE WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 13TH

With the recent poor weather and the forecast for this weekend calling for more rain and possibly snow, we are closing the trails for the weekend. We hope to open the trails later if the weather cooperates.
