^I rode Dwelling on the 4th. It was the first trail I ever rode a few years back, but it was a lot more fun my second time around with the additions they've made in the last few years. When I get comfortable enough on my motorcycle to put my mountain bike on it, I'll be heading up there fairly frequently.

I can point you toward our infamous "long descent". I don't quite have the stamina in my arms to pound it out these days. (It's a good 9sec at least)

Awesome!!!!!! I bet Never would shred that. He might even get it down to 8.5sec.

It's 1am here in the 828.......why am I still up?
