A celebration of Mt Bikes , Something to be proud of.

Saturday was a small gathering of people to officially dedicate the Parcel of Land That NEMBA bought Better known as Vietnam.
I was privledeged enough to be invited and was actually one of the ride leaders .
I took the first group in.
first we had to get to "our" parcel of land . it stared out with 100 Yards of fun loving MUD !!!



We got there and here come some more riders from then next group

Seven


PK ! showing off riding with his eyes closed .



A few words




the Plaque


If you'd like to see it in High res it can be seen here
The Plaque, High res

Dave Watson From Kona Was there , and here he is with my son



Now lets ride this Land we Bought !


Ms. Grimble , Just riding along


Dave Watson , was using a Borrowed Bike , he had flown in from vancover last night, and didn't have a bike with him. , any way here he is enjoying some our lovely granite


Dave the "Silver turtle" doing a wall ride.


well That did not end well


Dave watson Doing it rather nicely






Hey Single speeders can do this too!



It was starting to rain, but not to bad , at least it held off .
my Son was having a blast doing this ride . He was by No means the slowest person there , and he even had to do a little showing off for every one .



and the My Wife was riding with us too



riding a spine



at this point the rain was getting a little worse and I need to get home so we veered off from the rest of the pack

But here is a last shot I got of the group riding away !

Cool thread... I think I may have to link this to our local MTB association... good work on raising the funds and keeping the land open for recreation.

Congrats to you guys. Great job. And the pics are awesome. Fun to see Watson on a 'normal' bike. Thats pretty rare in public (from what I have seen of him)
