Kick my sick, post a picture

I am sick(nothing serious) and can't really ride to well right now. But I love looking at all of the rest of you out having fun and biking. Please post a pic/video so I can convince my immune system it wants to go back out and play. Thank you!

Awesome video. I have no idea if it will make the OP's immune system kick into overdrive but it's motivated me to go hit the trails today. Thanks

I hope you feel better soon.

Since I know you love mountain biking, here's a ride up a steep technical trail off of Ice House Road last summer. I was on my rigid Rockhopper with 26x1.95 Specialized Hemispheres pumped up to 65 psi for the road climb up Ice House Road, so it took 3 tries to make it up the first climb (caution heavy breathing!).

I think you've seen all the mtb videos I've posted since I got my mountain bike in February, so here's some pics from my Easter Sunday MTB ride that I didn't post due to BF's ridiculous 10 image limit.

Nice steep section on the last part of the Flagstaff Hill climb. It's a "freight training uphill" climb, that's for sure!

Nice smooth singletrack section of the Salmon Falls trail. This is on the way to the above climb.

If you haven't seen this video take a look. It could be you on your next ride. If you want some more laughs take a look at the other youtube videos by remi.

Excellent tunes! Huge fan of those two bands.

The crashing was nice, too. Well, maybe not "nice", but you know.

Hehehe. The crashes weren't bad at all. No injuries, aside from a couple scuffs.
My 2 fav bands.
I've been trying to see them every time they are in the bay area.
Them and the new Jello project, which has Ralphie from VF on guitar.
Good stuff.
