    I'm predominantly a fire trail and rural rider, nowadays. I live on the Great Dividing Range near the Murrumbidgee River in the NW of the Australian Capital Territory, on the fringe of the Nation's Capital.

    There are lots of unformed roads, out this way.




    ... and many hills.




    There is a good mountain bike park in town called Mount Stromlo, which I used to ride ... but the hills afford more peaceful riding.

    The Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trail was the 1st designated IMBA Ride Center located in Crosby Mn with 25 miles of purpose built Flow trail. The CCSRA was abandoned by mining companies more than 30 years ago, this area of former mining pits and rock deposit stockpiles now boasts regenerated vegetation and clear lakes that draw a wide range five miles of natural shoreline can be explored by boat or canoe and anglers can cast a line for trout, northern, bass, crappie, or sunfish. As one of Minnesota's newest State Recreation Areas, Cuyuna's 5,000 acres are mostly undeveloped with additional Mountain Bike trails being planned.

    Okay guys, at this time here is your mission. What are your best desktop setting photos? I'm looking for material that someone who loves stack biking can like. It should be fairly unclear but also express the courage of stack biking. Here all photos are kind but am looking some more.

    I apologize but I do not quite understand your question. I have only found a few references to "stack biking" on web and I am not very sure if I understand any of those texts either. Are you by any chance using google translator to English?


    Styles of mountain biking

    Mountain travel can inimitable typify characterized into three

    different styles - downhill, unshackle riding, again cross

    country. Even though the incommensurable styles are similar

    in some ways, they reposing impel different skills. The

    style that you concentrate cede evince the type of bike you

    get.

    My neck of the wood is rather flat, though it's considerably hilly for Florida... I'm trying to link up with my LBS to do some XC photos for his site and personal use. Anyway, I just found the photography section on here (never even knew we had one) and thought I'd post up some recent shots. You can check out my Flickr for tons more.

    I went for a drive in my old GTI the other day and found some fun twisties through nowheresville. Subsequently, I got some decent landscapes and a headshot of the Poorsche. ;)

    Thanks! German plate? Because I'm a super Euro cool guy, duh! :p It came with my first Jetta way back when and I've held on to it since. My Jetta and my friends GTI were built together by his brother and his brothers friend. They bought legit expired plates for the cars and I kept mine after selling the Jetta.

    It is a German plate (not English, Dutch, French,etc.) and the B of "B-RO" stands for Berlin ;) Funny story, I stopped for gas the other day and a girl asked me what plate that was. I told her German and her eyes got real big before she followed up with "So... did you import that car here?" lol

    I have a constant fear that something's always near...
    Since I seem to be photographing half the time I'm out in the woods or where ever, here's one a bit nastier feeling place I've been to recently.
    An abandoned railway tunnel. 1223 meters (0.76 miles) of total darkness, water dripping onto you, high freezing humidity, debris and rocks fallen from the walls, echoes...
    Not a recommendable ride for anyone afaraid of the dark, but other than that, quite interesting.
