    I was exploring some ATV trails by my house that I haven't been on since before college when I came across a group of ATVer's stuck in some puddles. They saw me coming and I heard them say "Look, its a mountain biker" before I blasted through the puddles and stopped on the other side to try to choose whether I should stick with this trail (the trail was really torn apart) or head back and take some other ones I saw.

    When I stopped one of the guys piped up and said "Hey boy! Whatchoo ridin that there bike fer?!"

    "It's fun," I replied.

    "HA! Naw, this is fun (points to ATV), that's just HARD! (pointing to my bike)".

    Some Dude on the trail told me the other day….”I’d rather have a brother that was gay than a cousin that was a roadie”….. I hope not to offend any homosexuals that might read this.

    From two mt. bike guys who stopped to watch me go through a rocky technical section...

    "Helllll yeah!"

    (I saw them stop to see if I was going to do it...so I did a section I always walked while riding alone. Little did they know that I was shaking for about 5 minutes afterward.)

    "how the hell are you so fast on that bike?" then someone else in their group said "i'd hate to see you on a racing hardtail. we would have been following you"

    that made me feel pretty proud after being told that by a group of really fast riders who, from what i could tell, were on a team. they all were riding either carbon fiber Trek Fuel's or carbon fiber Specialized Epic's. it made me feel pretty good being told that after being able to ride two laps at the local trail while keeping up with these guys!! it made my day!

    edit: i forgot to mention that i think they were on a team cause they all rode the same bikes, but also they all had the same gear on for the most part.

    "It's Soooo hard!"

    From a really cute gal,



    who was struggling up a climb,

    in response to my "hard climb, huh? greeting.

    I just enjoyed the fantasies that left out the context of the comment.

    dunno about the coolest, but one of the dumbest for sure

    Two of funnist damn things I heard....

    From a friend who was relative new to mountain biking, staring up at my buddy gaining his courage to go down a steep section....

    "Dude... that looks steep. Want to send your bike down on a ghost ride just to see how it does?" His seriousness mixed with his niave good suggestion made it so funny.

    The other one was my buddy that just rolled a nice drop. As I was pondering it, I expressed my grave concern about the huge tree immediately after the roll out, to which he said...

    "Don't worry about that tree, you're not going to hurt it!"

    After my buddy came out of the saddle at about 30 miles an hour on a forest service road (upper Vasquez, Winter Park), he had an obvious broken colarbone, what turned out later to be a fully avulsed broken elbow, and of course all the road rash that comes with a wreck like this.

    As luck would have it some joggers saw the crash and stepped up the pace to come help us. The one jogger was a really sweet young women who was also an EMT. As she was using the taters of his shirt to try and secure his arm; he says to her:

    "wow, you are really good at that, we should go out sometime."

    I guess it just doesn't matter how much pain you're in, sometimes the mind only has one track. FYI, she declined his offer...

    "After we get to the top of this climb I want to show you some secret singletrack I've been working on. I haven't let anyone else ride it yet, so let me know how you think it flows."

    Still haven't forgotten that ride.

    Nice.

    Just last night.

    Riding Betasso, three of us (all guys) came roaring down the link trail and caught up to two women who had been talking smack when we saw them earlier. When I thanked them for letting us pass, one of them says, "Well, I don't have health insurance, so..."

    approaching a traffic light

    a kid rolls down his window and says, "your back tire is rolling forward" and I being completely whipped from riding 18 miles to work, working a graveyard 12 hour shift at the hospital and now at 12 miles riding home - LOOKED BACK AT THE TIRE

    He giggled and his parents drove off.

    Hehe. funny stuff Napoleon.

    Coolest thing said to me as I rode by (by three guys on downhill bikes I caught and passed on my Yeti 5.75) "Damn! Holy Sh!t you were flying down that. Cool."

    The funny thing is, Im not all that fast going downhill. I think their pads and heavy gear was weighing them down. Hehe.
    Whenever I haul a$$ I have to take two trips.
