    Why are you guys hiking that? In Oregon we call that a puddle, ride right through small stuff like that.
    Happy Trails

    "Spoiler"... I saw this post so I only watched a little. Anyway, can't you see the 12' crocodile lurking to the side there just waiting for that? Could'a got ugly.

    Whitewater Basin to Rapid Creek. Sort of a hike through thick oakbrush that we had the misfortune of carrying bikes along. The Downhill once we reached Rapid Creek was great.

    We try to avoid stuff like this, but sometimes you just can't escape the reversal of roles with your bike

    LOL, the thought crossed my mind but with the size of the rocks at the bottom I still haven't managed to clean that section when it's bone dry. And it is a goal of mine to clean it before the road that was ripped out by last winters storms gets replaced.

    2008 TransRockies, Stage 2. I didn't take that picture, but I'm in there somewhere. The leaders missed an arrow and the entire field followed them up a 2,000' avalanche chute, all fall-line hike-a-bike on boulders. Only after the leaders got to the top of the mountain and came back down, did someone see the arrow half-hidden, up in a tree. It was way lower than the top of the mountain. That was crazy.

    BCT! Hey, I've been there too.



    The second line you posted I think is rideable, but I haven't cashed in the cajones to give it a proper try yet. Lots of jagged edges to make the 10ish miles back to the car a serious PITA.

    That's the one, it's not bad if you do the loop route. It's certainly not a place to fool around much. Nice angle you shot there showing the trail section.

    A little teaser, we're about 3 hours into the ride at this point:

    From Cottonwood


    Here's the start of the legendary Cottonwood hike-a-bike. Almost two hours of hiking, which comes after 80km, dozens of creek crossings, 1700 m of climbing and about 9 hours into the ride.

    If a tree falls in the woods on the trail you just rode out on, does it make for a HAB?

    I like to finish every 80 km epic with a good 5 km hike a bike. Nothing's as wonderful as strapping a bike to your back and walking up rock scree in your bike shoes.

    Good Morning Sunshine! Nothing like a bunch of willows and stream crossings at 6 am.

    Loaded bike as ice ax.

    New HAB technique development.

    Somebody on pg 1 had a HAB shot of this same exact location on the Colorado Trail above Lake City.

    I do ALOT of HAB, i like large vertical steep descents.
    Of all the HAb's i do, they all pale in comparison to this one: 8000 vertical in 11 miles, 100% singletrack (no shuttle option). took 9 hours of uphill HAB to bag the 8000.

    I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

    I think this is the same spot.

    Mark, just around the switchback, straight up from me

    That's from our August trip, on the ascent up to the Mesa before Coney Summit.

    Going to have to try some of these bike carrying techniques. However, most of the time I decide there is no great way...

    Ah, so good to see the return of this thread. It's been a while. Nate, I totally forgot about those pics from the "Hallway" climb. It's been a while since I've been up that thing.

    Wow! Awesome thread!
    I can't believe I missed it.

    Chain Break Hill, Michaux SF, PA - the entrance to Grave Ridge
    (not long, just steep)
    The Hike A Bike Thread-cbhillsm.jpg
    (I still think it's rideable even though I've never made but maybe a 1/3 of it)



    This sucks! I broke my leg in GA doing less than this.

    Sounds like a challenge. Always game for those kinds of climbs.

    Yeah, know what you mean about break a leg. The potential is there. Guess you could say I hurt myself more when I'm off the bike than when I'm on it. I once had one of those kinds of HAB's and accidentally dropped y bike on my ankle - chainring into it. Left one hell of a mark. Now I tell you, I always portage my bike on my right for this simple reason. Why I had my bike on my left I don't know.

    Great thread!

    I regularly take my bike for a walk. Seeing these pics, I don't feel so bad.
