    Seven summits ride report

    I finally made it to Rossland BC to ride the 7 summits trail – I have heard the hype on this trail for years – I was not disappointed. It was an organized ride through Revolution Cycles in Rossland – they teamed up with Adrenalin Adventures (provided the shuttles) to put on a poker ride. For 25 bucks you got the shuttled to the start and from the finish, a T-shirt, dinner at the end and a bunch of beer. The prizes for the ride were pretty good, a bunch of Dakine gear, Santa Cruz Chameleon frame, tires, helmets etc. I rode it with my 13 year old son (who received an award for being the youngest rider) – here are a few pics of the day

    A bit of exposure in some spots

    Incredible Views

    All the trails are ridable - some are rougher than others

    Takes a little patience getting him up to speed – but in couple more years…..

    Thanks for the pics and report. Looks like the dirt had a touch moisture in it - - how'd that come to be? The break from bone-dry-and-dusty must have been nice.

    Yea - it was nice - there was a bit of dust, but nothing like Silver. The only real bad part of the ride is that it about took out my back tire because of all the rocks - three sidewall cuts. I guess I could have walked the rock gardens (and not jumped into a couple) - but what fun would that have been.

    It already has started - here is a pic of him training for the DH race at Beacon earlir this year -




    Right after this he asked "When do you think I will be as fast as you" -
    "Up or downhill?" my response
    "Both"
    I replied "If you keep going the way your going, maybe next year on the DH, uphill and XC - maybe when you are my age, I'm not giving that one up."

    So, if you adopt me, does that mean I'll finally become a decent mountain biker?

    Have any family in NC, SC, Tennessee or Kentucky? You might already be related.
