    Need new thread for the holes...and is there a gnome thread somewhere? Those could even be combined in the same thread. Since gnomes generally live in those holes.

    Yup, a reminder that it is basic 1st aid to leave the object in place until medical help arrives. Twigs, sticks, bike parts, whatever.
    If an artery is severed or the damage is severe, the injured person could bleed out before assistance arrives or you may cause more severe damage by trying to remove the object.

    Cool stuff,
    I remember riding the portal trail with my 2 riding buddies back in 2003. We started up poison spider mesa and rode to portal and back down. I 2 of us did it on hardtails. I did it with v-brakes and a 100mm judy. One friend did it with v brakes and 80 mm sid. And the crazy part is the best rider among us did it on rigid steel Giant with Canti brakes!

    Of course it was dry at the time and we did walks some spots. Given the exposure we all took it a bit easy, but in the end we survived. One of the most memorable rides of my life.

    '12 Santa Cruz Highball 29", '13 Santa Cruz Solo 27.5", Fetish Fixation SS 26" XC, AM, blah blah blah.. I just ride.

    I think I threw up a little when I saw how close you guys were to that open face cliff especially at 1.02 when the bidoer looked like he was stalling on that cliff face!

    COol pics MTB_pilot. I rode the Arizona preserves a few weeks ago. I rented a felt from a lbs that was a POS, and I only had 1 water bottle, but it was cool. Your pics really capture the challenges out there. Fun riding for sure.

    slimat99, I had to watch it again. Portal always brings up good memories. Always started at Negro Bill's and proceeded to Gold Bar and Golden Spike with the ever challenging finish down Portal. Nice run... I have not been since 2004 and I have never hit it with disc brakes. I know where I want to be this spring... thanks.

    glad you're stoked to ride Moab again! My first time on Portal was 04 too. Check out Mag7 next time you are there. Great way to do the Portal now.

    I hope this qualifies... I cleared this up to the point of the double timber step-up, which is much further than I have made it before. It may be a while before I get the double-timber obstacle, as I am pegging my heart rate before getting to it right now.

    This little 2/10th of a mile, 11+% grade climb. I've cleared it all attempts over the last few months and am 3 sec. from KOM. TONS of 4-10 inch loose rocks that seem to be in different place each time I try it! Didn't get pics of the last little killer after the trees, but it's loose and steep!

    I've only gone up that once, I made it a lot farther then I thought I would (how ever far that was I don't remember). I like to do that trail clockwise so I get this as the decent, and the smooth section as the uphill. It took me a while to clear it going down too, now I can do it without touching the brakes. One day that will come back to bite me though, I'm sure...

    We go up it and come back down the same way. I love a good techy climb.

    Just pay attention to the first min and change, videos take me forever so I put the good stuff first. The rest is a trail with a lot I CAN'T clear. (fixed or otherwise)

    So the logpile (at :20) was made from trees down from Sandy. I only tried to put a front tire on it the since first time I encountered it, but decided to give it a shot for real since I had a spotter (usually stuck riding solo). Cleared it the first time!

    Thanks!

    This is Belmont Plateau, in West Philadelphia. I still can't wrap my head around the fact that this kind of singletrack is IN the city (the Wissahickon trails are more popular but a 7 mi ride just to get to them for me).

    The log clears are on a trail called the "mouse" and the POV part is on the second half of that system (you can connect them or not). All the trails there are super tight and techy, but I feel like it's making me hone skills quick. (aka, they kick my butt).

    Hey Ricardo,

    You should be proud as those are some fun features! The skills you'll develop on them will stand you in good stead wherever you ride.

    Good on Ya!

    Mike, it's a rarely travel trail. Basically the west side of Porcupine past the saddle are that you can go north to Fat Man's or south to T100. It's a tough climb, that takes a little skill, but mostly determination and willpower. I circled it on this map attached in PINK. YOU can....DOOO IIITTTTTT!

    Yes, as soon as you said it I knew exactly where it was. I like going E > W on Porcupine Ridge and hitting that section. I've tried to climb it twice. Once a year or more ago. Failed. The second was maybe 6 months or so ago. Cleaned it. Was surprised 'cause that loose stuff is a bear and then you finish off with that section of rocks and tight turns just when you are outta gas.
