Ride Report

No, I forgot to bring my camera. So no pictures for anybody.

I went to legend park. Although the skinnies and the whole skills section was pretty rickety-ish, the trails were pretty well built, with good jumps and nice berms. I do have huge calluses on my hands, but I consider them badges of honor.



EDIT- Anybody in Raleigh ride at legend park?

MEGA EDIT- I saw some college kids on hardtails. They either had no helmet or had it on backwards, and were hucking their bikes. =/ I figure they were drunk.

DUPELERF EDIT- Is this a well thought out thread or what?

See this is amazing, I post a thread about a getting 2 flats and wanting to ride but can't and be overcome by bordem and get hounded on. You post an almost as equally worthless thread and you don't catch anything.

Must be my signature...
or my seemingly lovable personality... -_-

Done.





Albeit, these are older pictures. Since then my saddle has changed colors, my brake levers are scratched and I've installed a Speedball.


@Cheeto. It's because I'm awesome.

If that new home is in my garage, and I'm the sole operator, then yes. Take it.

EDIT- "Pisgah"? What is this ****?

Well, now that I think about it, I feel like I read about it when I was searching for trails. Apparently world renowned trails? The one quote I remember from the article is that you see "people riding Schwinns and people riding custom jobs from Norco." I assume it's a national park or something?


PS- I'm justing now clicking the link.


EDIT EDIT- Damn. I was thinking of Tsali. However, Pisgah sounds pretty neat and challenging, so I'll be sure to drive out there when time permits me. Thanks.
