    A bit jealous of my buddies SC 5010 with the Enve wheels. It's a sweet rig! But I am loving my new GG Trail Pistol. I'd say combined they're a tad bit more than a set of emerald earings. LOL

    Thanks, the goal was 2k and had that whipped by December 1st. Might aim for 3k in 2018!

    Oh man, I don't miss those suckers. Grew up in upstate NY and had to constantly cut them out of our hunting dogs fur. Out west we have small stickers but nothing compared to what you have in the east.

    About two years ago I did a slow motion tip over climbing a switchback and landed right on one. But I'm not talking about a spiny cactus but plants that produce burrs. Completely different animal. The ones Grassington photographed are everywhere in the North East, USA in the fall and winter. Very difficult to get out of a dogs fur. They have to be cut out in most cases. Although out west we have some plants that produce a burr or sticker of sorts but I've never seen any that compare to the ones from back in the North East.

    I will definitely take burrs over cactuses, scorpions, tarantulas and rattlesnakes!!! Hell I would take poison ivy, frostbite and hypothermia over those things as well!! give me the cold Great Lakes any day!

    LOL
    I've lived in both regions for a number of years per.

    1] Cactus only gets you if you land or sit on it.

    2] Scorpions only get you if you step on them or they are in your shoe before you put it on. And mainly at night.

    3] Tarantulas are harmless to humans, if you see one stop and admire and be thankful of the sight. Then be in your way. Slow moving harmless creatures.

    4] Rattlesnakes, just be aware of your surroundings and avoid them pretty simple really. Pus they are in the east as well.

    5] Poison Ivy / Poison Oak frost bite and hyperthermia are found in the east and the west. A moot point.

    6] The burrs in the North East are found everywhere and are next to impossible to avoid. :p

    Yeah, no wild cactuses here on the south coast of England, though I do have a Haworthia happily growing in my front garden against all the odds. The things stuck to my legs are seed pods with a Velcro arrangement, so they don't stick into the flesh but do attach themselves very firmly to fur or clothing. They can be a bit itchy, as I found out one time when I missed one in the wash and it attached itself to the inside of my leg armour.

    I've grown a few Opuntia cactuses over the years. Some are like a much less vicious cholla, but they're plenty vicious enough for me. Faceplanting into a cholla can't be fun - it's not just that they have lots of very sharp spines, they have lots of very sharp spines with barbs.

    One thing I failed to mention is the burrs from the North East although very irritating getting caught on clothes and dog fur they don't really stick the skin like some of the stickers out west. And definitely not like the cactus out west.

    Looks like you had a great day to ride. This year, one of my goals is to take one of my kids for a ride in WA, just for a fun day trip from Vancouver (BC).

    I kinda hit the jackpot when I moved here. I came from Tahoe and thought I'd be giving up a lot being in the burbs. Little did I know how AMAZING the trails up here are. Not so much the weather or snowboarding, but BIKING at least is awesome.
