A question that comes to mind is, why are you not dropping off those rocks?

Hey, that's a cool bridge. I wish I had a yard that I could build stuff like that in. I would love to build a big course and not have to worry about it being sabotaged like some of the north shore stuff is.

BTW...what kind of bike do you have ?

Too much balance involved for me



Clipless pedals and log rides scare me

the pic is a little deceiving at mount hood. it was a lot steeper than it looks. but i'm not trying to say i'm some master downhiller or anything. if i had bigger balls and a bigger bike then dropping off the rocks would have been fun! anyways, it always seems like the camera isn't there when you want it too, eh?

those of you who go bigger, do you have any pics? it would be nice to see some--- they'd put xc riders like me to shame, i'm sure.

You forgot the most critical picture of all. Your X-Ray and subsequent story involved!

i wish it was from biking, at least then it would have probably been an attempt at something bigger than i should have done. i actually broke it in a soccer match. i don't know if anyone else has broken their leg, but i heard a loud POP!
it was intense. anyways, i guess it was good it happened in december, so i didn't have to miss too much good spring and summer riding. i did miss the snowboard season completely, but i heard the snow here was crappy, so all is well. i am almost healed now, so i'm able to ride my road bike and commute to work. but the way i ride in the mountains i need to wait another month or so to make sure it's completely healed. missing a few races and good times in the meantime
after being an adrenaline junkie boy my whole life, i'm so suprised this was the first time i've ever broken a bone.
oh, i wish i could get the x-rays. it made me cringe when i saw them in the operating room and my leg was broken in half.
anyways, safe riding everyone!!

ya, the bridges and stuff were in post canyon, mostly in this insane area where there was a sign saying "south shore"- it looked like videos i've seen of the north shore. i've only been up there a few times, but it was a lot of fun. makes me want a longer travel bike for rides like that. there were dudes hucking 20 feet drops-- fun to watch for sure!
ya, all my riding buddies told me if i had to miss a winter of boarding it was good that it was this year. do you ride post canyon and around hood river? where else do you ride? i really liked larch mountain too- there's a loop that's alright, but then there's also this hiking trail that cuts between the loop that is extremely steep and rocky. people hiking up couldn't believe we were riding down it--
