    nothing new in the foothills...it's been going on for years

    Next time just take up the entire trail and they'll have to stop. Wider handlebars and bar ends will stop them next time.

    Agree with Ryman, almost have to pretend you don't see them. And I believe that George's may actually sell jerseys so it may not actually be team riders.

    Welcome to the Foothills! Ride the skillz park instead....

    It may have been George's jerseys or even team members, but I would bet a sixer that it wasn't an employee. If it was a mechanic I'll beat a twelve pack out of them for you!

    Yes, climbers have the right of way (unless it is a hiker, runner or equestrian coming down). Was one on a white Bianchi SS and another on a white Surly? I think I've seen them before out there but they have always been cool. The trick to climbing and not being run off is to be good at playing chicken. What I do is I throw both elbows out, look them in the eye, get off the saddle, accelerate, and make no attempt to move over... It works most of the time.

    Skills park you say, where's it at?

    I'm starting to think FR and Skillz is code for some larry Craig "Naughty Boy" behavior.

    I played chicken once with some yahoo bombing down hulls on a Raleigh without a helmet. I braced for impact as he clamped his rear brake and started a-fishtailin'. The look of panic on his face was priceless. He skidded to a halt and bumped into my front tire and almost tipped over into the creek bed. I smiled at him and said "I'd recommend a helmet bubba". His reply way "y-y-yeah maybe".

    Craig,

    While I think its great that you have a skillz park in your back yard I can't help but wonder why these things aren't being built in a more community friendly area like the Bogus Project. So many times I hear about our lines not being friendly enough for the beginner/intermediate rider, yet those folks haven't shown up yet to help construct new lines on our trail for this skill set. I've invited people to come on up an get started but no one has bothered to do so. I said I'd help now that the upper level trail is nearly completed but still to no avail. THIS FRIDAY AFTERNOON SMILEYCOOK AND I ARE GOING TO FLAG OUT NEW LINES ON THE TRAIL FOR BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE LEVEL RIDERS. PLEASE COME ON OUT AND LETS GET THIS SUPPOSED COMMUNITY OFF THE GROUND.

    Rant over,

    Ian

    ps - I really do like what you've done. It looks better than most of the work we have done up at Bogus. I wish you'd come on up and lend your ideas and skill at building.

    No regrets, appreciate your thoughts!

    I totally understand where you're coming from. The few times I've been able to make it up to help out, I was stoked to put some sweat and blood into the Bogus project. I want to help with those other lines, time is just scarce for me right now.

    This project in my backyard was built for the same reason as the pumptrack last year, and that's so I could "get some riding in" and not be away from my family all the time. I spent an inordinate amount of time away last year from the ones that matter most to me - my family (1 wife, 3 little kids, 2 dogs). I also built it so folks could come over and ride, bbq, get to know each other. My kids dig learning to ride the stunts CBro gave me and that gives me a lot of satisfaction. It also is my practice area so I can get better at riding the stuff up at Bogus and it can be ridden year-round. Watching you, Doug, Lonne, Jason, and Daryl up there motivates me to be a better rider, and this is my training ground.

    I'm currently making a career transition and that's changing my schedule for being available to come up there and pitch in right now. I DO want to help with the beginner and intermediate lines, I assure you.

    My offer is open to anyone who wants to come out yonder to SW Boise and practice with us in the meanwhile..

    Thanks for airing it out, it's appreciated and all the effort you've put into the Bogus Project.

    That is soooo sweet, CP! You and DK and your other buddies are quite cool at maneuvering those turns. And love the hinged teeter! Will you be adding more?

    Yes, 2-3 more lines. And that hinged teeter will become a 3-teeter with a 2X4 addition soon. Thanks.

    Didn't anyone read the memo? "You're Own Private Idaho" was just a song.

    Sheesh. Pretty soon people will be living in prefab communities with remote-control gates, driving their cars into their homes with doors that open at the push of a button, not using their front doors, having parks in the backyard are protected by 6 foot tall fences, have ornamental parkways in the front yard with water-guzzling green grass, not going to movies because there's a theater in the home already, and not going out to dinner because some schlep can drive it to your home.

    Um. I guess they already brought them here...

    Sheesh. No wonders kids are toting guns to school and religeous zealots are setting themselves on fire.

    At least here in Atlanta we got hoods. Greetings from the old south.

    I am SO surprised that no one started a flame war over the fact that the OP mentioned team jerseys AND single speeds.

    I have stood my ground on a climb many times and forced the DHer to run off the trail, sometimes crashing. I get a chuckle out of it every time. Dumba**es!

    Absolutely. Bring 'em both. Kids are 10,7, and 5. The 7(boy) & 5(girl) are more into it than big brother is. Bring pads. And I can spark up the bbq again too. We're all a bunch of spazzes so nobody gets bored.

    We're going to session it on Sat at 9:30 am. Drop me a PM with your email address and I'll send you a waiver and directions to my own private little compound/doublewide trailer lot..

    Twisted Crank you are a funny guy. We are making life so convenient that you don't have to know the community in which you live, it takes to much time.
