Mountain Bikes etc.
#1
Tongue 
OK I am done sledding for the season so it's time to think about bikes. Mrs RR & I ride motorcycles and also bicycles. I don't see how to create new summer fun categories so maybe IR or CBH can add them. Mrs. RR and I kayak also, not sure if there is a need for a yak section but who knows?

Anyhoo, with the snow melting off of the trails I've been thinking that it's about time to break out the MTB and hit the trails and get muddy. Does anyone else on here ride mountain bikes? If so, shout out.

Mrs RR and I are planning on blowing the dust off of our bikes as we haven't ridden much in the last several years. Our dog likes to run with us while we ride so some of our rides will be easy trails like the local parks and towpaths, etc.

If I ride enough this year maybe I'll work up the gumption to go ride a ski area again, Killington is fun and relatively tame for a middle age fat guy like me. Rolleyes

Pedal in the mud oh hell no they make motors for that nonsense!!

Paddling in still water is kinda boring but when the waters raging then in all in!!

When it's flowing it's usually cold as hell though

Carol & I have Ross mountain bikes, look at us & think they get used at all?
Just space in the cellar being taken up by them.

Summer section can include anything to keep yourself busy.
Have fun guys, peddle away

Whistler looks like fun but some of those tabletops I would probably be locking my brakes before so I could get a LOT less air than the rider in that vid lol! That Redbull vid is crazy, you are right! 60' drop isn't challenging enough, let's add a backflip!

On your epic canal trail pic, I see I'm not the only one to bring a cannon to a water balloon fight! I feel a little silly sometimes with my full suspension rig just tooling around the park with my dog, but at least I'm getting some use out of it. Smile

I'm on a mission this summer to strengthen my legs, Kick my plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis to the curb. It's ruined my past 2 seasons of snowmobiling and I am sick of the constant pain..I will be pedaling my ass off this summer!!! and actually planning a canal ride with the kids this weekend..They both got new bikes for christmas this year and are very excited for their maiden voyage..
