    Bigfoot!

    Anyone have personal experience or a sighting of any kind? Not necessarily while out riding (but that would be sweet), just in general.

    Gf and I have been getting into Finding Bigfoot on Animal Planet and I'm not sure how seriously I can take those guys.

    I, personally, have not.

    Sure have!

    I had a toy monkey called Bigfoot when I was a kid. He had plastic hands and feet with extra long thumbs and big toes so he could stick them in his mouth. He started to split at the seems in his legs after a while and beads started falling out of him, so Mum sewed little trousers onto him to hold him together. So cute!

    Bigfoot is shy, so you won't see him often. But he likes mountain biking. He'll observe you if you're in his area. If he thinks you're ok, he'll come out and say hi. Be friendly, but be quiet and calm. Assuming everything goes well, he'll show you his favorite secret trails and ride with you. Share some cheese with him when you take a break. Cheese is his favorite food.

    My kids (3 and 5 years old) know that about Bigfoot. And they know it's true because daddy said it.

    He doesn't come out much since all of those "messin' with Sasquatch" beef jerky commercials came out a few years ago.

    Didn't Hawg post a picture recently with him and his family on vacation, and Bigfoot photobombed their picture?

    I heard of a guy named Steve Austin who actually fought bigfoot back in the 70's. Luckily he was bionic and survived the encounter.

    ^ nice work. Funny you post that pic because my daughter loves to watch "Finding Bigfoot". She laughs at everything those fools are saying.

    Question is: When are they actually going to find him?

    EDIT: I have seen him, many of them! Ride The Matterhorn at Disneyland, there's lots of them hiding inside the caves of that ride!

    the research that dr. melba ketchum is doing interests me (she was in the news not too long ago):

    Bigfoot DNA Tests Prove Hairy Creature Exists, Genetic Researcher Says

    I leave myself open to the uncertainty of it existing.

    I'm going camping in Algonquin park in two weeks, i'll make sure i get photos if i see him. especially if he's riding a fatbike

    I actually had a very scary run in with something while riding several years ago. I am still not sure what exactly happened, things got a little crazy but I did manage to get a short video and have posted it to youtube. You tell me what you think it is.

    One of my dad's friends has about 40 acres of wooded property in the hills in Wa state. One day he found a huge footprint (too big to be most any human) in the mud near the gate onto the property. Took a plaster mold of it. That was 20 some odd years ago.

    Also, growing up in that area I've been by the bigfoot museum in Index, Wa, and seen some of the other sights from the old Harry and the Hendersons movie.
