    Bizarre...hmmm...nothing too bizarre while riding. But some fun things with my gf while out on the trails...

    My actuall riding is pretty tame compared to most of the people I ride with, so I can't say anything I have ridden is bizarre.

    Oh and I got stuck in between a black bear mom and her cub...heard her growling and just flew down the trail. Wrong reaction but luckily the bear left me alone Scared me crapless.

    Well, I'll start off the bizarre stuff by saying that I actually rode in the buff for over 7 miles last Fall. I never encountered anyone though. I was pretty paranoid the whole time. I almost always see a Game Warden or a Fisherman along the way.... No other vehicles in the parking lot was a good indication to my seclusion... Thank goodness. It all goes back to my childhood I suppose...

    Last year when running a FS I readjusted the rear shock while riding.

    My friends were out and saw Grant Allen, he snapped his chain on one of the doubles at our tracks, and my friend asked for his chain... and got it.

    I saw him another time, he's a pretty cool down to Earth guy.

    The most bizzare thing that ever happened to me while riding was...
    I was riding on the road, and my tyre just sudenly deflated. I went back and found nothing on the road (which was laid 1 month earlier so really smooth) and found nothing. I then checked the tube and there were 6 holes in it, but nothing in the tyre. I still have no idea where the holes came from.

    I drove for two hours to meet a friend and ride near his house.
    Went to cross a little stream very close to where we started, pulled the front wheel up to go over the stream and found out I forgot to tighten the front quick release. So of course it released.

    Forks went through the center of the wheel. Several broken spokes. I of course went over the bars. Last time I rode with half finger gloves.

    went to some small jumping trails, and found a nice 5 foot gap jump i liked the look of
    went a little to fast, and didn't pull up hard enough
    i made it, and my front wheel came down, and my back wheel stayed up.
    i went on my front wheel, balanceing for about 15 feet.
    quite scary, cuase i knew i was up, and i was trying not to hit my front brake to go over.

    when your bike is the most expensive thing you own, you do whatever nescessary not to harm it.
    even though later that day doing bigger jumps i snapped two spokes

    It is the most expensive thing I own. Hold on let me think though. I'd have to say the set-up I have currently for my comp. (W/ surround sound and the works) It's probably worth just as much if not more.

    I'm sure many of you have done worse (or better.. depending on how you look at it ), but here is mine:

    There was a mud puddle (mud mixed with water) about 1 ft. deep and 10 meters long that I thought I could ride through "if I had enough speed through it". Well, I ended up not pulling up hard enough, and "taking a plunge" in the mud by going over the handlebars after my front wheel got stuck.

    Damn.

    That reminds me of when i tried to go through a stream, but it turned out to be quite deep and my bike got logged between rocks and i floated with the current away from my bike.

    Mount Snow nude crit...circa 1996. Certainly less than seven miles, but there were about two hundred people watching. I didn't care...I was just trying to find and draft Missy G.

    I ended up getting lapped by Todd Lyons*, who was doing a naked power wheelie around the whole course. Later I found out the women's nude crit was held later (concurrent with my panicked and fruitless search for my so-called friends with whom I had entrusted my shorts).

    *Rode for Haro back when they actually made their own bikes
