    The more I know the more I know I don't know.
    Let the bike ride the trail, you ride the bike.
    Look where you want to go, not where you don't want to go.

    Welcome to the "Jungle"

    How are you liking our local hostile plant life. It seems that you guys had a bacth of flats, good to get it out of your system. Scarr Pass and Fantasy Island are fun, make sure that you hit the 50year trail.

    Gravity, not just a good idea, it's a law.
    The only one consistently and constantly applied, no exceptions.

    We hit 50 year trail the first day, Sunday. played a bit in the chutes, didn't make it all the way up to Carbeneau pass for the cool d/h we've been told about. Pre-rode the course today, looks like lots of fun, lots of cactus hanging over the trail, should be even more fun at night.

    You gonna be out there? we are camped on Copper something Economic road. sorta...hehe, still keeping our hotel room in town for the weekend too. gonna need it sunday night.

    Slime is your friend, unless you pinch flat

    I recently pulled out one of the tires I used for the 24hr 2 years ago and it still had a 1" long thorn stuck in it.

    Just so you know Bob, the weather has been beautiful here this week
