    A few photos from today's ride ...

    Okay, so the weather has been really sucky for the last 10 days... rain, rain, rain. Today was the Open House for Calabogie Peaks (Chairlift/DH), and well, it was sooooo muddy, I didn't take my camera on any of the runs, but I got some cool shots at the base of the hill. Here they are!

    Here are a few of my favs..:





    They had a radar *** and had a contest to clock the fastest rider.. even in muddy and wet conditions, it was up somewhere aroudn 70km/h!

    WOW! I've hit 40 even on a road around my house but there isn't any large hills to pick up the kind of speed you mentioned! That's just crazy...

    Heh, check this out, we have loads of hills!! You can sort of see in the background, and this is the last 10% or so of the hill. Calabogie is a ski hill, but they open in the summer for us nutjobs...

    I'm sure my few inches of travle on the Sid Team fork wouldn't do me much good at those speeds. One of these days I may buy a downhill rig.. I wouldn't mind being able to romp on the bike and still be able to take all of it home from the trail.

    Heh, I only have a 32 in the front... so yeah, I'd be falling faster than I could pedal anyway... but when you have enough gravity, you're just holding on for life at that point...

    sorry thought you were refering to the speed mentioned above by someone else. I wasn't trying to be dead exact just point out it needed to be converted
