    My university cycling club organized a bike trip to Kelso in Milton, Ontario, but the bike trails were closed at Kelso, so we ended up going to Hillton Hills, which was very close.

    As soon as we hit the single tracks, I was amazed by the technical skills reaquired to ride these trails. Most of the trails were fills with rocks, and a lot of the sectiosns were fairly unrideable to me. After a few hours exploring, I hit my knee on the handle bar pretty hard, almost went over the handle bars a few times, but I gave my suspensions a really good work out. I have to say that I'm really glad I made the switch from a rigiid bike to a full suspension, because my body was barely strained. That pretty much covers my last ride of the season, here are some low resolution photos:

    You may want to either a) keep the camera more still or b) use a lower shutter speed.
    Great pictures otherwise.

    Link fixed! That place was awesome initally because it was very technical. However, all the trails had the same characteristics. After an hour or so, I was sick and tired of doing the same kind of trails. It was fun nonetheless and I got the test out my suspension!

    My friend is using my Fuji 601 to take pictures. It is very picky with how steady the person's hand is. I was too lazy to configure the camera's manual mode and the Fuji is very bad at tracking motion in Automatic mode. Next time, I will do everything on full manual mode though
