Yesterday's Ride Video - South Loop Fire Trail

This will look a lot like last week, but it is a different trail. Lots of deer, snakes and a turkey.

A huff n puff climb, some gravel bombing, a fire tower, a downed tree crossing, the guardrail of death ride and of course, the celebratory IPA Oh, and a good tune at the end

Hmm, the heavy breathing just ain't as exciting when a dude does it.

Speak for yourself! Great video! I loved it. It reminded me of one of iforgotmename's videos, and of course I loved the raw footage.

I'm the master of heavy breathing climbing videos, so this video was right up my alley.

That's what I'd like to know. I miss the sense of humor, support, and great videos he contributed.

I lived in the Lombard area, on the outskirts of Chicago. It was nicer then, they apparently developed the entire area since then and the woods I remember are gone now.

I live in Texas now, too hot for me.
