    Listen! Got out to Blackrock Today (vid)

    It cleared up today so my buddy Miguel and I went out to Blackrock to ride. He is just starting to ride bikes so today was a great day for him to go out and start learning some general technique before the reason really ramps up. He did a good job for sure... i think we added one more rider to our ranks.

    Well here is the vid... This is my first work w/ my Hero HD.
    <object width="800" height="450"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=9437990&amp;server=vimeo.com &amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portr ait=0&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1" /><embed src="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=9437990&amp;server=vimeo.com &amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portr ait=0&amp;color=00ADEF&amp;fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="800" height="450"></embed></object><p><a href="http://vimeo.com/9437990">Blackrock first day of the season, 2010</a> from <a href="http://vimeo.com/user596621">ryan daugherty</a> on <a href="http://vimeo.com">Vimeo</a>.</p>

    BTW, the blackrock guys were doing some work when we were up there.. and they have some great stuff in the works.... we rode a hodgepodge of trails today since a handful were closed for work... I can't wait to ride sictar from top to bottom once it is 100% polished... and they were building what looks like to be a small wallride on the top section of bonzai.. I have a feeling summer is going to be gooooood.

    Hey Ryan,

    Is BD2 still closed?

    I can't wait to get on that section. It is going to flow like mad.

    OMFG the music sucks. I hope that was some sort of sick joke.

    I missed out on last summer at BR with a wrist injury. I only had the Highline out a couple of times. This Spring/Summer will be great.

    That trail reminds me of Cat Scratch in Highland, except the trees fly by you much faster.
