    Smile Three wheeling in DuPont!

    This guy, Mike Passo, changed my perspective. I don't have much else to say about that....

    Ridgeline...at my full running speed and pulling away.


    Mike didn't know he was going to get off road that day. He was in his three wheeled chair designed for playing tennis.


    He said if he had his off road pedal chair he'd be railing the berms

    That's awesome! He needs a helmet. And are those I-9's? And no gloves! Wow.

    Yeah, we talked about the helmet He had no idea he'd get a chance to do that so didn't bring it.

    The wheels are actually kevlar spoked. He says they have a nice give to them to take a little of the roughness off the ride.

    Oh and the no gloves!! He had to "brake" a lot going down Ridgeline which involved just rubbing the tires with his hands...I didn't ask him how they felt at the bottom, but I didn't hear or see one complaint.

    It was quite an eye opening experience for me, and I think all the others there too.

    Very cool indeed! How many of those rigs has he got? I mean if he's got one for tennis and one for the dirt, he must have quite a stable.
