    Catapultam habeo. Nisi pecuniam omnem mihi dabis, ad caput tuum saxum immane mittam. (Translated: I have a catapult. Give me all the money, or I will fling an enormous rock at your head.)

    Here's my adventure in Taiwan

    Heading back to the hotel after a ride on a very rocky trail in Taichung.

    i like my commute better



    although i ride the paved road next to it more often these days since my bmx got stolen, no way im riding my enduro or single to school and its not that much fun on a beach cruiser

    but yea from my house its 1/8th mile of road, then about 2 miles of singletrack, then another 1/2 mile of road to get to school
    AZ has the best mountain bike gathering ever
