    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!

    <a href="http://s1288.photobucket.com/user/mudbunny2/media/P1013873_zps3b38f301.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1288.photobucket.com/albums/b500/mudbunny2/P1013873_zps3b38f301.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo P1013873_zps3b38f301.jpg"/></a>

    Small rooty climb... leads to a big payoff

    Whip it contest

    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.
