    Best riding images of 2012.

    As in *your* best. No need for lengthy 'splanations--we just wanna see some solid images.

    Here are ten of my favorites from the year.

    * * * * *


    Enjoying the season with Cutty up high.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/l3xrxno79mndn2r3514r4BltJjMXiDiNlir3tmyGpnU?feat=e mbedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-dQBYsJsfCeE/ULrH4sbSHAI/AAAAAAAAhtg/gz9hQvDAUqE/s800/IMG_8960.jpg" height="800" width="649" /></a>



    An anniversary for me, and an intro to bikerafting for Flipper and Fettucini.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/dHFW0IegejNAMH8s1V8A5Y1O_uoH6pYgJGyAcIuOPYI?feat=e mbedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-xlBee-pNGvQ/T190AzNYfbI/AAAAAAAAff4/hD-2RYA45FQ/s800/IMG_4062.jpg" height="537" width="800" /></a>



    Getting flithy with the boys while bikerafting the Dirty Devil.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/cSuhrOHbPD7sjKDnYHBHaY1O_uoH6pYgJGyAcIuOPYI?feat=e mbedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-8yFqALkmKGo/T3tpYXImSFI/AAAAAAAAfpE/j3lEg62wtac/s800/IMG_9809.jpg" height="537" width="800" /></a>



    Doom and Vlad, killing it on the CFTT.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/TOPbgRRf_O8TbhmUSowb9RltJjMXiDiNlir3tmyGpnU?feat=e mbedwebsite"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Y7tVgjmGTTE/UMA2jEUEYsI/AAAAAAAAhxw/ned4yXaeLGM/s800/IMG_3553.jpg" height="800" width="535" /></a>



    Savoring all that is precious about summer in the mountains.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/mSwKlZnYOWCYzIEqvqbxABltJjMXiDiNlir3tmyGpnU?feat=e mbedwebsite"><img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-EvQK1kj1TBw/UEmLj41X7tI/AAAAAAAAg9E/5N3QHhsUq1o/s800/IMG_1321.jpg" height="537" width="800" /></a>



    Testing the limits of traction on the rock of Gooseberry, and the limits of giggles while so doing.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Ya-DjE_RumQSEDL8_DGmHxltJjMXiDiNlir3tmyGpnU?feat=embe dwebsite"><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-lpebqsz-6WU/UMA2gU1kuwI/AAAAAAAAhxg/s2xRrWIK3io/s800/IMG_0657.jpg" height="455" width="800" /></a>



    Herself, exploring our favorite part of the redrock desert near Moab.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/nJ-bHX4eVmqHYdyNGjpK9xltJjMXiDiNlir3tmyGpnU?feat=embe dwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qo9J9E9nzN0/ULQfsc95yoI/AAAAAAAAhh4/NGO8rXA5g2Y/s800/IMG_7678.jpg" height="537" width="800" /></a>



    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/ofV-9pFF733Ih6N40B5bXBltJjMXiDiNlir3tmyGpnU?feat=embed website"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_fc92pgSqe0/UMA2mt2EvMI/AAAAAAAAhyA/P_l-F9MmvVo/s800/IMG_7825.jpg" height="537" width="800" /></a>



    Ripping through the autumnal woods with Greg as the sun set on both the day and the alpine riding season.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/HzGgq6rCyWl-Jed-axGKnhltJjMXiDiNlir3tmyGpnU?feat=embedwebsite"><im g src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-rGH0Ec0_AMo/UHcZdCs4B1I/AAAAAAAAhHw/-AcAuWzJSp4/s800/IMG_8825.jpg" height="800" width="535" /></a>



    Toodling through Hell.

    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/8GbPNtoxjoaq3Q2iMD0KmhltJjMXiDiNlir3tmyGpnU?feat=e mbedwebsite"><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-ZwOAIjpXErc/ULj8UMJIsII/AAAAAAAAhoU/YTrA3ZvHLQc/s800/IMG_3165.jpg" height="503" width="800" /></a>

    You post pics like that and then ask what others have?
    I would be embarrassed to show the few pics I have. lol

    Living within a few miles of both Pisgah and Dupont, I have had some good rides, but fall short in the pic depart. I need to start taking more.

    None of these are great but they are my favorites from riding with my kids this year.

    My oldest son Jake.









    My Daughter Ryan.









    My youngest son Conner.



    And finally me, these were taken by Jake who is a budding photographer at 12 years old.




    These were taken by two of my friends

    2012 was a crazy year of off-road touring. Record rain falls in the Northern Australian Alps and on the SW Slopes and record flood levels on the flatlands west of the Divide, gave a year like no other.

    I didn't take any special shots this year, but I did record the year from astride my bike on the Bicentennial National Trail, along the Murrumbidgee River and on a few Travelling Stock Routes.

    Love at first sight. I just got it done fairly recently, built it up as an SS to replace my 26" SS, and managed to get it on the trail just in time for the wet weather. I like it better in every way than the bike that it replaced.

    Hi Folks,

    This is my "best" riding image of 2012. Obviously, that's not because of the photographic quality of the image, the artful nature of the composition or the spine-tingling bravura of the action.

    It is because this is a shot of me "returning to the scene of the crime"....so to speak. I broke my left femur at Northstar Bike Park in August of 2009. 3 surgeries, a year of physical therapy and a boatload of All Mountain rides later and this shot was taken of me dropping Big Daddy on Boondocks Trail at Northstar Bike Park:
    Best riding images of 2012.-michael-big-daddy-cropped-mtbr.jpg

    Yee Haw, my limited edition of Free Ride is back!

    Have fun however you get dirty,

    Michael
    If you can't keep the rubber side down......at least smile for the camera!

    I was slacking a bit on taking a camera with me this year. But went through the collection and found a few that I enjoyed. Riding with the kid and watching him progress has been a high light.

    Here's what I got though, from Florida, in cronological order.

    Apalachicola National Forest in May





    St Marks Wildlife Refuge in July





    More from Apalachicola National Forest in September









    Tates Hell State Forest in November

    Awesome pics, folks, I am envious of much of the ground you have covered. Thanks for sharing and keep them coming.

    Very nice pictures. Do you not have to worry about Gators setting up the Hamock so close to the water?

    There are really some awesome images in this thread! Here are the favorite pictures of my 2012 album so far...

    Spring is finally here, first ride of the season on dirt trails. (April 24th)


    My girlfriend having fun on the trail. (July 1st)


    Me riding on Grey Mountain. (July 15th, pic by a friend)


    Mountain Hero in Carcross. (July 28th, pic by same friend)


    Amazing view while helping with trail building in Carcross. (Sept 30th)


    Chilkat River, Alaska (Oct 7th) OK, not truly a riding picture, but we had such a great weekend...


    In the 2 weeks between Sumer and Winter... I declare this the off season! (Oct 20th)


    No doubt, winter's here! (Dec 7th)


    I'm looking forward to a great Winter and an even better 2013!

    Honestly, not too worried about the Gators, they usually keep to themselves and avoid contact unless theres a nest closeby.

    To the poor, sweet, tortured soul that just left me 'neg rep' for starting this thread:

    You're an ignorant d-bag.

    Specifically, your spelling is almost as pathetic as your grammar.

    If you'd had the brass to sign your diatribe I'd have sent you $100 via PayPal *immediately*--to help cover the high costs of tutoring.

    Best of luck in this here life--methinks you're gonna need it.

    Toodles,

    Not an epic year. Most of my rides this year were solo and all but 3 were within 17 miles of my front door. Most of my pix came from my phone or timer on the GoPro.
