    The first "There will be blood" ride...

    A group of us tried to do a local epic yesterday by climbing from the Northend to Hard Guy to Deer Point and down Eastside and Sweet Connie... Unfortunately, the heat, cramping, a can of Red Bull, knee pain and a couple of crashes had us cutting the ride short. Fortunately, no one was hurt badly (no broken bones, just major road rash and blood donations), we still made it to Deer Point, put in about 35 miles, and had plenty of cold beverages and hot grub afterwards at Lucky Ada.

    Here are the pics:
    Hard Guy trailhead




    The steep part of HG/FG


    Past halfway up the first climb




    Finishing off HG/FG


    Ridge Road (aka Attrition Starts Here). We lost two of our riders here due to fatigue (Idaho City ride the day before) and cramping (from not enough beer the day before)








    Down to four at the top of Deer Point


    50 yards past this picture, Dave hit a rut at warp factor 10 and had his worst crash ever... No pictures of the carnage except for his extremely broke and bloody helmet(it served its purpose well)... Luckily, we had a first aid kit and a nurse with us so we fixed him Dave up the best we can and decided to ditch the singletrack down the face of Bogus, Eastside and Sweet Connie and escort him down via Bogus Basin instead...




    On the way down we stopped and tried to borrow a cell phone from Ian, Cody, Lonnie (and another dude whose name escapes me... Sorry) but we couldn't get a signal... They were climbing up the Bogus trails on their FR rigs... Wow!


    Happy Ending- beer, brownies, mojitos, chicken, italian sausage, steaks, potato salad, banana bread, chips and salsa...


    Heal fast Dave!

    You guys are nuts.

    I just rode Eastside and Sweet Connie and went through 3L of water halfway through my ride. Way, way too hot to be doing that much climbing, if you ask me.

    For the record . . .

    Hodgee pretty much did the Idaho City ride twice on Saturday. He kept riding back to see where I was at. Lots of extra climbing.

    Well...

    That's something of an exaggeration -- I haven't got anywhere near that kind of ambition!

    The ride was going so well!

    This is the first time I've ever been able to climb all the way to that lift. I hope my fitness doesn't go down the tubes while I recover. So in the pic where we are talking to Ian and crew it looks like I have a new tattoo but really its road rash. I really hated to miss that BBQ but when I looked in the mirror after my shower and saw grit still imbedded in my body I thought I better go get some help from a professional. That numbing stuff makes scrubbing tolerable. What I am most sorry about is scrubbing the ride thru eatside and down connie. Not that I could have done it but I hated to see my friends miss out. Thanx for taking care of me everyone especially Sarah Jo for putting me back together enough to ride back down to my car. After looking in that mirror I told myself your f in nuts dude. But I still brought bike clothes to Salt Lake in case the contusion on my right thigh and my separated shoulder feel good enough for a greenbelt type ride. Thanx again Yawl and I'll try to be ready to do it again, MINUS THE WRECK PLUS EASTSIDE AND CONNIE, in 3 or 4 weeks.

Oh that's right I would never keep up and we may even get in more trouble anyway. I saw your new bike at John's the other day. SAWEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!
    Hey maybe if we went for a ride this weekend anbd you just pedaled with one foot i could keep up.

    Ouch!!!! That crash looks bad.

    Otherwise I hope that you guys had a great ride. It looks like a fun ride.

    Beer on top

    Next time we need to do a pre-ride cache of beer on top of the mountain for those of us that wither in the heat. Riding up the ridge road and thinking about the alternatives of passing out among the black baby heads on Sweet Connie or turning around and doing Shingle and having a beer made for an easy desicion - BEER!

    Can't wait for the next clown ride.

    Look a lot better post clean-up

    When we ran into you guys at the top of Deer Point trail, you looked much more battered than these after photos. A lot of dirt mixed with clotting blood and that semi dazed look is definitely not a preferred sight that far from home. Kudos on getting up there, definitely earned some downhill karma on that one which equals guilt free shuttling in my book.

    Pictures just don't show the real thing. I actually look worse today, people turn their kids away when I show up at resturants here in Sandy, UT.

    Good job on the climb. Dave, really sorry about the carnage. Last time I saw you go down was in front of me that day in the Owyhees. I hope you now got it over with for along time!

    SAy, SJo's Banana Bread would have been plenty incentive for me to complete that ride!!!

    Be Well All,

    what a rough day (or two?) in the footies! I rode last night and saw a fire truck, police car and then life flight headed up 8th street direction. Anyone hear about that one?

    To finish off my ride, I hit a hidden hole at the bottom of the lower bobs trail (by the houses and golf course) and had a nice over the bars. I'm just sore unlike some other folks.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?

    I hit that same hole. There is a bunch of grass face level right before it so you are dealing with the smack int he face from the grass, then wham. Luckily I have not put the stiffer spring into my Lyrik and it sucked it up.

    Lowest point on the Lower Bob's trail, slightly before the climb up to the pavement.

    that is exactly the location. I was on my newly built full rigid single speed. I wouldn't have felt it on my squishy bike.

    Still no word on the second emergency yesterday?

    Update on the blood

    Some of the blood has been contained under the skin of my right leg. The bruise wraps all the way around my leg. The road rash is a pain... have to change the bandages every 24 hrs. The shoulder aint bad... just dont move it to that position where it hurts. The ribs on the other hand are bad.. can't breath deep and coughing or sneezing nearly puts me on the ground. Here are some pics of the leg.

    So long as we're showing skin to win, here is my club foot a week after the incident.

    I'm thinking about putting Small Block 8's on my wheel chair.

    What did you do photo chop that, or put makeup on that leg, or maybe your camera doesnt show purple, or maybe it just wont turn purple till next week. Cameras just dont make it look as bad as it really is. Want to go on a greenbelt ride Sunday?

    Taken with a cell phone under florescent lights. It's not very purple because I didn't tear too many ligaments - just around the heel. I stretched the hell out of every ligament in there though - so now it's swollen up like a cartoon foot. It feels like a swollen tick when you touch it.

    I'm probably not going to be on a bike for at least another week. Today is the first day I've walked without crutches.

    We are both in a sweet spot for upward mobility. It can only get better from here. If you would paint the foot green and the toes purple it would look like a watermellon with grapes glued on. My black neighbor once said, as I was carrieing a watermellon in the house, "my wife didn't tell me you were having us over for dinner tonight". His joke went right over my head for a minute there. But we all got together and polished off that watermellon that evening.

    For all of you that did this ride, you should be proud to know that you climbed 6000' plus that day....and rode over 35 miles

    I GPS'ed my ride up Bogus Basin Road, the Ridge Road, and Hardguy 'cause I wanted to know how much climbing was involved. It turns out to be a bit over 6k' of climbing...or at least that is what Motionbased calculated the vert to be. And since y'all climbed higher than I did...I bet the total vert ascended was clost to 6600.

    Anyways. Nice job.

    Well alrighty then

    I had no idea it was such a valiant effort. Now we gotta tie in Eastside and Connie. Not this weekend but maybe next weekend I'll be ready to try again and if not hopefully the weekend after. I think this buris bag full of fluid on my right hip should be going away soon.
    I can't figure out how to spell buris... Its a bag around your joints that fills with fluid if your injured. I had no idea there is one on your hip. I know people that have had them drained in their knee... I had the one on my elbow drianed. The Doc wants to wait and see if this one on my hip just drains itself.

    But for the Grace of God

    My wreck was somewhat like the one in the thread below. I was just very lucky and pretty much walked away a little dazed and confused, able to ride down the hill on the road.

    The hit parade continues. Let's just say that multiple days of short term memory loss, speech aphasia, nausea, and subsequent insomnia (along with the usual scrapes and bruises) are not the most fun things I've ever experienced. Comes with the territory, right? Been a few years since my last big wreck, so I was due.

    Bottom line - be careful out there - the trails are in their usual mid-summer "marbles on glass" condition.

    Most of the injuries are "internal" unless I can get a copy of the CAT scan to show you! Some scrapes and bruises externally (leg, hip, arm, shoulder) but nothing I haven't had before. Heck, I've even broken helmets before, but no prior noggin injuries (well, from cycling.)

    Location/circumstances weren't out of the ordinary - the usual Mach 9 down Hulls on Friday afternoon, rigid fork, hit a rock wrong on the flat section that follows after the small bridge if you go left after the trail split, hands go off the bars, I hit the ground. Stop, drop, and roll. Bent a brake lever, didn't even crack the helmet. That's why it took me 24 hours to figure out I had a concussion.

    Doc said no mountain biking for a week. So, I rode Hilltop last night on the road bike. When life gives you lemons, go road biking.

    Proof indeed that the light that burns twice as bright is as good as two in the bush. Feck man. I looooove concusions. Almost as much as I love chest xrays.

    I just love you, Twisted. Mostly because you post things about bush. Kudos to you, "the best poster on the board."

    More details

    EP,

    Did you leave that special stripe in your shorts? As an old drunk in the Owl Club (Salmon) once pointed out to me, "boy you ain't been drunk until you shat your pants." The same holdstrue for "real" crashes. So EP was there some spackle? We never get any good spackle around here any more.

    Oh, how I miss the old posts!

    Earthpig gets his clock cleaned on Hulls Gulch, has a bike fire sale on Craigslist, tells me he loves me and then says I've got 3 toes.

    I've got 6 toes.

    When you make the one-eyed trouser worm the forum mod, the board becomes far less spacklelishious. 9 months board-free and nothing has changed. Same ol yadda yadda yadda, albeit with new faces. As exciting as a day trolling for whores in Nampa while nutting on methaqualone.

    Of note - JK5's posts give me flashbacks to 98.

    May the vizla be with you.

    WTF is going on out there this year? Ala "The Happening," are the trails conspiring to hurt us all this year? Here we go again - another rider down with a serious injury. Cinnoman monkey - who most of you probably don't know - went down hard last night on Adams Gulch up in Ketchum while riding with another mutual friend (and lurker on the board). Here's the description of his injury courtesy of his riding partner:

    About 200 yards from the top, he went superman and broke his shoulder. Big ouch. The muscles that attach to the shoulder- stayed attached to the shoulder bone and ripped the bone from the rest of the shoulder. Big ouch.

    God knows how he got out out there. I can't imagine trying to ride the slick, steep switchback downhill with one arm.

    Bottom line - friggin be careful. Them trails is turnin' evil.

    Busting things is not cool. This isn't mine. Thankfully.

    It seems like that was many years ago, but it was June of 08.

    that would be cool to someday do that again. i for sure couldn't make it that far right now, but maybe with some hard training I could do it. hey, who knows, something like that could be turned into an endurance race.
