    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.





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





    Getting flithy with the boys while bikerafting the Dirty Devil.





    Doom and Vlad, killing it on the CFTT.





    Savoring all that is precious about summer in the mountains.





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





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









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





    Toodling through Hell.



    * * * * *

    Your turn--whaddya got?

    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:

    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!
