    No jackwagons on this average ride... Photos!

    Rode Horsethief yesterday. Just riding along..... Average spring day with average riders on an average Fruita trail....

    The ride reaped the average smiles, average post ride beers and average photos.

    Here we are, right after the dead cow portage. No photos beforehand (as an average rider, I don't stop on the downhill or fast areas to take photos).



    Average vertical photo:



    Average horizontal photo:



    Average closer shot, to get the average little lip to lift the front end:



    Average poor lighting on the rider shot:



    Average "I think he's pulling a wheelie" shot:



    Your average show off the sky photo:



    We did see other riders, but no jackwagons. However, this is what I suspect a trail jackwagon may look like:



    And your average "this is the last photo" black and white artsy shot:

    Average ride ?

    Not when I can count two C'Dale Lefties.

    I can go a whole season without seeing another one besides mine.

    Ho hum - so average. Keep em coming though!

    BTW the link to your tours only seems to get me my own FB page, even when copying and using the address directly with the browser.

    mmmmm, average
    "There are those who would say there's something pathological about the need to ride, and they're probably on to something. I'd wager though that most of the society-approved compulsions leave deeper scars in the psyche than a need to go and ride a bicycle on a mountain." Cam McRea

    The Tours link still doesn't seem to be working. Nice photos though, I'm jealous.

    Perparing for the average "panning" and "low light" average shots?
    The only regrets in life, are the risks you didn't take.
