    The sky. Cause I'm usually laying on my back about to pass out from the climb! Nah if I do ride anywhere that has climbing the view would be of the Smoky Mountains.

    Even after living many years in the mid-west (mainly Crested Butte), Virginia pulled me back home.

The truck would blip the sirens and the fire fighter on our deck would listen to where the sound came from and radio directions to the truck. It was a form of echo location. When you are 12 years old, that's the coolest thing in the world.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Looks like the Beatles Abbey Brick Road album cover...only the mtb version.

    Here in MA, we have little elevation change, so...here is an example of our killer alpine views...

    I thought I recognized the Garden of the Gods. Lived in the Springs for 17 years before the job took me elsewhere.

    Crisillo - Germany's good for those bike trails everywhere connecting the towns!

    As tired as I get of the desert and the lack of trees -- we do get some nice views on occasion. Okay, one pic is from Norhtern Nevada.
