Fall Stoke

The roommates and I decided to break out the cruisers and take a scenic shuttle tour from Galena Summit down into the basin.

Served as some good winter recon, an excuse to wear bell bottoms, and a good test run for the bike I'll be "racing" in the Idaho Cross Championships tomorrow.

back at the summit, brendan shredded a big mountain line on fubar, my cruiser'd out '95 zaskar.

"Seasons change and so do I..."

The colors are turning here in the Wood River Valley, and with the last week's dusting of the local peaks, it doesn't feel like winter is that far away. If you'd like to share a shot you feel represents the transition of fall to winter, send me an e-mail at Biking, climbing, hot-springing, hiking, volleyball, whatever- send it my way and we'll put something together.

Josh snapped this nugget the other day out on Adam's loop:

Feel the Burn, Ride the Burn...

Here's a video of Danny riding the burn as followed by Sean from a month ago.

Think Snow!

The morning after a big night in Stanley, our motley crew of three met up at the Bakery to orchestrate the day's adventure. Josh, Sean and I represented the remnants of what was slated to be the "big" ride. While our riding buddies sat quivering under their covers, waiting for the rains to pass before leaving their beds, our trio set out to conquer the "big one" in the persisting drizzle.

We set Sean's trusty Torpedo as our shuttle vehicle with proper apres supplies, cranked up the latin hip hop, and ascended into the mist. The light drizzle lasted through the day, creating all-time conditions on one of the most stimulating trails out there. The sun made a brief appearance, so Josh pulled out his camera and snapped some bangers (click to enlarge):

4000+ feet of descending later we arrived safely back at the Torpedo chilled to the bone and grinning ear to ear. Good thing there were some hotsprings nearby...

"I either have a long term loss of my short term memory or a short term loss of my long term memory, problem is I can't remember Man!"

Ever wonder what to do with those old rear entry boots sitting the garage? Throw a party! Here is some classic ski bum footage from the Scrapplefest/Ullr- Pray for Snow party...
