    Oh balls!

    Here's a couple of pics of my Wednesday mtn bike ride. We made total balls of it.

    The pics are crappy because I was still panting hard and my BP was up from the climbing effort. I couldn't hold the camera steady.

    First pic is of my riding partner. Second is my vintage mtn bike.

    Thank you. It's a 1989 Haro Extreme. Built back in the days of manufacturers experimenting for what works best. (notice the undermount U-brake.)

    The balls are jsharr's.

    The trail is a fire road we ride on Wednesday evenings. So far my best time for the 7 miles to the point the pic was taken is 1:06.30 which is not bad for a fat old geezer like me.
