Any of you guys who didnt show bc of rain really missed out.


Just a handful of riders showed up for Friday to ride a little. I followed Jim around on a loop. Some misting rain but not bad at all. Quite a bit of rain came later that evening/night. I could hear on the roof of the van while sleeping.

While a bit windy, Saturday’s weather was a bright and sunny. A lot of R&T guys were there. I managed quite a few laps. Trails were great and the big hills were lots of fun. Had some great laps with SkinnyJ, Gene, BamBam, SpaceGhost and many others.
I called it a day and rolled out around 5pm.

As always a BIG THANKS to Grandville for having us out there. If we still have DAMN guys who have never attended, these events are a must!


I took a few pics, maybe someone will post them for me...

Had another great ride with Bucho and the guys who were willing to take it easy on me. Perfect weather... at least once some of the early day slick mud got tacky. Posting a hero photo from when I realized I had enough fun for the day. Thanks again to Granville for the opportunity to ride such an enjoyable collection of trails (*hills and all)!!

Even put together a new blooper reel from my helmet cam footage. Feel free to stand up and be recognized if you see yourself in this clip... :hi5:

Nice vids Adam!

I was a little annoyed when I got bumped at the very end of the vid. Was very minor. I was fumbling trying to ride and flip my petcock so I pulled over to get it right. This was also on a section of double track.

But in the first vid, that seemed pretty messed up. That guy hit Mel really hard. On a casual trail ride

Many thanks to Jim and his family for sharing their most awesome property with us. The Skinny-J clan had a great time as always. Looking forward to the next one!

You guys are more than welcome and I thank all for riding safe and being respectful to the property and each other :thumbup:

I bet there was over 50-guys there Saturday. I'm sorry I did not get a chance to ride or even say high to many. Thanks for the photo and video BamBam. I did not even see you. I had so much fun riding with my sons and taking some new folks out. I had one of the best rides with my sons ever. I did not even get a chance to take one photo the day.

Can't wait to coordinate another one. Stay tuned :cheers:

Broke out different editing software for a better look at that hill crash. Makes a good case for wearing upper armor with the back shield !
