helloween 2011

November 1, 2011

I have missed Rick‘s Helloween rides the last couple years, so maybe it’s ironic that with Rick traveling all week, and Kris stepping in and organizing the Halloween night ride in Corner Canyon, I was riding no matter what.

Times are such, that I really needed a ride.

Turnout was good:

I’m in the middle. And no, I am not a business man. I’m not Superman.

Does this help:


I think I’ll give up on the night videos. I mean, it’s a cool video, you should totally watch it. But night videos are hard.

Also, Tyler’s lights died a third of the way down Rush, so the rest of the descent, well, it’s Tyler ripping it up. Luckily, Tyler rips.

We went up Potato Hill, up Anne’s, over to and down Ghost (during which my camera stayed mysteriously off, don’t know why), up Canyon/Brock’s, and then the hard core guys went up to Jacob’s while the rest of us went down Rush, and out. And then to In n Out. Which was nice.

Afterward, Ryan tried to get some of us to go ride the north Suncrest road on his big boy big wheels. [See video in sidebar–prepare to be amazed]

Very tempting, but I told him my first time on the big boy big wheel wasn’t going to be at midnight, on the north side of Suncrest, in 30 plus degree weather.

Kris went though. Now I have regret. Kris out adventured me. I hate myself.

    That was a fun ride.

    Good video. I’m impressed how clear it is, no noise/grain. I agree, night videos are hard.

    I’ve been wanting to do a big wheel downhill ride for over a year so when Ryan offered I was all in. I’ll trade you my Porcupine Rim regret for your big wheel regret.

    Hey, you kind of look like David Byrne.

    Love that movie. One of the great concert films.

    I heard David Byrne is a big bike rider. So it seems right that you dressed as him.

    That’s a great video. Rush at night seems like a, well, rush.
