Fred, you ride more just in the filming then many of us on do on our whole ride
Nice Vid. Thanks for that. The hum was cool.
Thanks! I think the roads you describe woud be cool to ride. There are a few single track courses that I've done but not quite different enough to make me drive 60 miles vs the 5 miles I drive to the local fireroads.
Then there is the "I'm not a scenic person" factor. If there were trees near me, I wouldn't know unless I hit one!
... I can ride in the mtns, the mup, the road, the dirt, and it's all the same to me. I could be in Hawaii or on the beach in Huntington where we hang out, its all just sand and water to me!
Another MTB partner gets frustrated cause I have no desire to drive 150 miles to see pretty scenery on the bike, but that's just me.
It works for me, keeps my wife purty!
