Wed Ride Video, more hills!

03/24.....GMR ride with Hillbasher. GMR down to Eastfork, then back up Lil GMR after a short break after admiring the river. Nice day! Caught a fly by of Pinoybenter and a couple of buddies descending GMR near the shack. Also another meet up with FryDaddy (currently seated #3 on bikejournal). Last time we met he was doing 10,000 ft, today it was 11,000 ft. The guy is crazy! There is a reason I don't ride with guys like this, you can hear his motor in the video as he flies up the switchback! And I was happy with our 4,000 ft today!

Too bad morons have to paint up the nice stuff!

On a brighter note, I'm getting better at descending with one hand! No cam mounts.

I read the title as "Weed Ride".
