    Enjoyed 2 days of downhill at our local bike park. It was sunny and got muddy... overall a blast!

    was a good weekend even though they said it would rain.



    the new air shock was soooo plush and the bike was dialed.





    was hitting the rocks at speed with only 35psi in the tires. normally i would pinch flat even with dh tubes. but the tubeless worked really well and i had great traction on the the wet clay covered roots.

    We took the day of work and rode summer solstice

    Me at one of the trail heads. Trails are still a little muddy


    Singlesprocket got some air


    A wedding was set up at the top of the escarpment. Beautiful setting overlooking Georgian Bay.
    The decore and everyone was dressed colorfully (ladies carried red umbrellas)


    The groom rode on this horse

    One of the noise barriers I sometimes ride. Stopped in the one spot that was not covered with knee high weeds.

    Hope the weekend weather is nice (Gosh it's only Wednesday!) Forecast is calling for 40% chance of rain
    If we can't ride this weekend due to rain... then we can do some gardening...hey is Jessica Rabbit back?

    Great thread. I never take pictures on my local trails anymore so thanks for the inspiration. Here's a couple from Buckwallow in Gravenhurst ON a couple of weekends ago.

    There was a Pedalfest at our local bike park. We rode 3 full days of dh and took in some of the activities.
    Riding-wise I accomplished 2 goals: I can now do a 18" -20" gap jump (landing it solidly) and I can do a wall ride! I'm still working on my drops!

    Good job! Keep working at it and you'll be up to two foot gaps in no time. J/K. I assume you meant 18-20' (feet). That's some solid air time there. Good job.

    Trying to find some summer stoke to add. Haven't taken many pictures this summer (and uploaded even fewer).

    Here's a couple from this year's Fears Tears and Beers Enduro.

    About 5 weeks after my second shoulder surgery I am finally starting to ride singletrack again. A few weeks of greenway riding but that just doesn't quite cut it. Bring on the heat and humidity I'm riding anyway.

    We drove up to northern Ontario to visit family and celebrate my mom's 80th.
    Brought the am bikes and planned to check out some trails and ride. The landscape is rolling hills on the Canadian Shield, and the trails are a combination of rock and sandy loam. Nestled in dense bush

    Near the trailhead at Grassy River... raining off and on

     photo P1014190_zps8e0718db.jpg

    Got some local wild blueberries

    Was about to sell this vintage hardtail I have. It is a carbon fiber frame bike I bought when I was still living in Singapore 19 years ago. I moved to L.A. 12 years ago but only rode it 3 or 4 times. Decided to clean the garage and sell it, after I dusted the cobwebs off I tried to ride it 1 last time, the fit is still perfect, the ride is still sweet. When the buyer called to pick it up, I told him I changed my mind, he was cool about it. I bought the bike to my LBS, put new tires, new shifter, and new brakes (wanted to put discs but the frame wasn't ready for it), tune up. Now on our 19th summer together I rode her again at Limekiln Canyon and boy was it so sweet, here's the picture. What was I thinking, I'll never part ways with this bike, never.

    Yesterday ... I forgot all about pictures. A few guys showed up when I posted on a local forum that I'm going out. We did pass this spot where "somebody" has recently trimmed the encroaching branches a bit:

    The day before, I rode around a couple of suburbs in the evening:

    Simcoe Day is a civic holiday in Ontario... so to do ? Ride and set off fireworks!

    Last run of the day on a long mellow trail and I got photobombed by this sweet curious pooch!

    Rode my first dh race this week. I held back a bit on my first run. I felt much faster on my second run but clipped a tree and lost the gained time. Oh well, it will only get better
