    So many to choose from. Have to go with Downieville, Second Divide in September because the action it conveys is Downieville.

    Buffehr Trail

    in Vail Colorado, June-ish. I found it while making calendars using pictures from a group blog, and decided it was time to change up the avatar. Oh, and I didn't take it, but it's one of the best pictures of me from this year.

    Gooseberry Mesa UT, Halloween weekend.



    I dunno if it's my fave pic, but it was the best thing I saw while biking all year, except maybe the parking lot after the hardest ride I've ever been on New Year's Eve while it was raining

    A longish story, but bears telling here since I see so many great pictures on this site.

    I'm part of a group <a href="http://www.bdiddys.blogspot.com">blog</a> of old buddies from just post-college, xc racing days in Nebraska. We're spread out a bit now and use it to keep in touch, smack talk, etc. We've posted a ton of pictures and storys this year, someone mentioned that we should make a calendar, and I somehow took the helm, dug through the blog, gathered the pictures, and placed and order for 17 calendars from Costco to be delivered via FedEx the day most of us were together for a party back in NE.

    Day of the party, I'm checking my email, and Costco tells their sob story: Machinery broke down, lots of orders, sorry your order won't likely make it pre-xmas. But, since it's our fault, if you don't get them pre-Xmas they're free. Not just the shipping, but the entire order!

    Xmas comes and goes, and a few days later the package makes it to my buddy's house, all the charges were refunded to my credit card, and Tuesday, via Nebraska, my calendar makes it to Nebraska. So... Costco Photo's customer service rocks. We've got no extras, but Redstone should have one up by this weekend for you to check out. If you think it's worthy, we could get you hooked up.

    The pic quality my not compare with most on here, but...

    I actually managed to shoot this this photo of myself using the timer on my camera and a twig tripod. It's on a section of trail up behind my house outside of Denver (the CO Trail) - on a day when I was playing hookey, which makes the picture that much better in my opinion.

    so tough to choose

    tough to choose for sure. for some reason i keep going back to these. pic number one is from oahu, hawaii in january 05'. this was from a 2 week trip that i took to hawaii with jen, shonny vanlandingham, mary hearn and elke brutsaert. despite having brought our mtn bikes over, we did not do a huge amount of off road riding, mostly as shonny was busy doing her base mile training on her road bike, and we would try our best to keep up until the temptation of drinking mai tais on the beach became too great and we would ditch off the pavement. this shot was from one of our few dirt rides, where a few minutes into the ride the ominous looking clouds that had been hovering overhead let loose with the rain they were threatening. this shot to me reminds me of the dark, dense foliage covering the trail, and the dreary day that we encountered while riding. the rider is elke brutsaert.

    the second shot was from spring time 05'. the cave that i was shooting from made a great frame for the perfect blue sky in the background and i shot many many pics of matt just barely in the frame, or already over the cave before i got this one.

    Here are two of my favourites. I am a newb, but have the bug bad.
    The first is my nephew. It is his first or second ride ever, but he used to motocross and it shows. This is at a trail called Three Rocks in the Glen Major Forest north of Ajax Ontario, Canada. Another friend of mine shot it and i think it is a great shot for a pocket digital camera.
    The second shot is from New Years day and i just like it for some reason. Very peaceful. It is from just up the rode from teh previous shot at Durham Forest.

    I didn't take too many good photos in '05. Hey, there's another NY resolution for me.

    I kinda like the uniqueness of this one, though.

    Bdiddy got me my calendar yesterday -- nice work Debaser!! I was pretty surprised at your choice of photos for the December image. That's one of my 2005 favorites!

    Thanks for pulling those together buddy. My calendar is hanging right behind my workbench in the bike room -- it'll get viewed often. Even though they ended up being free, we all still owe you a big one for putting it together. :-}

    Cheers,
    MG

    I have the same resolution, but here is a bike pic from the summer of 05 in the Latham Poop Loop. It is not the greatest pic, but the only one I have. The next one is a freeze frame of me falling on a helmit cam video.

    I didn't get a chance to ride much this year due to a fustercluck move. On my last ride at the Wessestein I took some pictures to remember a local ride. I've seen this view hundreds of times.

    Cool idea. Now that I'm displaced from my old stomping grounds, I may have to steal that idea and start something like that of my own.

    The view of the Pacific Ocean and Skyline facing NW from the top of Black Mountain, about a mile from the top of Montebello Road in Cupertino (Los Altos?). Taken in January or February and still my favorite shot, it constantly serves as my desktop background when I'm not stealing everyone else's beautiful shots from MTBR posts.

    Some great pics already posted. I'm not worthy.

    I don't know if this is my favorite, but I already posted my year in review so this will do. I love the wild flowers and the gathering blackness. Badger Pass at Cottonwood near Las Vegas.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    I'm a noob at this but every now and then I remember my camera. I am hoping for a lot more content in '06... especially of the county on the other side of this bridge (and near Santa Cruz).

    OK, I'll play. I limited myself to riding shots to keep from posting several...

    Colorado Front Range

    Heil ranch, May 05, cloudy, misty day. Not as wet as it looks.

    First pic is the raw photo, messing around with photoshop on the second.

    The third is the same trail, same spot, the next day.

    You gotta love Colorado for riding.

    My son's first trail ride, August 2005, Blankets Creek beginner loop, north of Atlanta, GA. Definitely my favorite shot of the year.

    Mt. Baldy

    This has to be one of the best rides I've ever done. I got this one in just before the end of the year and was my last ride of the year. Here I am on the summit of Mt. Baldy 10,064 feet, high above Los Angeles. Temps on the summit were in the low 40's and winds were sustained 30-40 MPH.

    Very cool. That is the most inviting photo of Heil Ranch I have ever seen! Makes it look like a trail I wanna ride rather that have to ride due to various reasons.

    No one ever reads these things. It said ONE pic and one taken BY the poster, not of the poster (unless it's a self portrait). These posts always bring out the "hey look at me riding posts" because I think people are spring loaded for that.

    Thus, I apologize for posting 7 pix instead of the requested 1 pic!

    Have a few...

    Back in May I volunteered at a local low-key mtb race. The race included an age division for kids with tricycles or training wheels. The images were just so darn cute!





    But also, this past year was the first year I did any competitive racing. I ran 2 half marathons and rode in the annual Iceman Challenge mtb race here in MI. It was a very exciting and busy year with training and racing.

    Flying Pig Half Marathon - May 1, 2005 - Cincinatti, OH
    * Overall Rank = 1626 of 3738
    * Class Rank = 121 of 178
    * 6.8 MILES = 01:14:21
    * CHIP FINAL = 02:10:42
    * Pace = 00:09:58
    * Final = 02:16:17



    Detroit Free Press/Flagstar Bank Half Marathon - Oct, 23, 2005 - Detroit, MI
    * Overall Rank = 1989 of 4072
    * Class Rank = 203 of 336
    * Underwater mile = 9:02 (we ran through the international -underwater- tunnel between Detroit, MI and Windsor, ON Canada)
    * Chip time = 02:06:52
    * Pace = 00:09:42
    * Gun time = 02:19:36



    NOTE: My apologies, I didn't purchase the jpg photos for my half marathons.

    Xterra ICEMAN Cometh Challenge - November 5, 2005 - Traverse City, MI
    Time = 2:48:16

    Kinda showing how exhausted I was after almost 27 miles



    The smile breaking through making it to the finish

    I was looking through my pictures and it turns out I only took one(no joke) picture on the trail in '05.

    not even in motion


    bike related but not dirt related


    I guess I'm going to have to do better in '06

    I couldn't resist putting two in

    This is from a ride at Black Butte Adventures in October. I have really learned to enjoy taking kids out to ride, and the camera seems to come out more on those rides.

    This one is from a ride in the badlands of North Dakota just outside of Medora.

    Neither of these are necasarily my favorites, but they are photos I enjoy but have not posted here before. My apologies for not following the rules.

    Had to do 2

    1- First "real" off road ride with my little man on Donner Lake single track. He now has a bigger bike that'll be brought on the same ride this year.
    2- Biggerst annoyance. Nice techy roll being wiped out by skidiots in Rockville. The original trail is the pale rock all the way on the right in the pic. Not walkable but there is an alternate line back about 10 yards on the trail. (my bike's pointing that way) Why a fav? Good to show ppl to friggen stop tearing it up and screwing it up for the rest of us. If you can't ride it, don't f it up for others.

    It took a bit of convincing to get my daughter to try this drop out. Its not big, but the biggest she has ever done. The smile afterwards was amazing.

    Rider unknown. Taken at Windansea.

    Sorry to say I have no riding photos for 05. A direct result of my worst year from a number of rides standpoint since 2000. That's what 2 kids will do for you if your not carefull.

    Love all the pictures posted so far.
