Trumbull - Greg on a Log Ride

My Son - Stunt Riding

Greg on a Skinny 
(upper stunt park - south end)
this was a difficult ride - the tree was twisted and filled with knobs
it was a great moment for sure...!

13 years old and kicking' butt, A memorable moment for us both...

Rich - Under Rock

Admittedly not the greatest photo 
We are at the highest point of the park, 10 ft from the cliffs
I am grabbing a water break sitting under a large boulder in upper right of photo

Trumbull - Nasty Bump!

Pequonnock River Valley State Park

September 2, 2007

Rich - Nasty Bump

I hit a diagonal root going too fast on the little loop
--before the stream--at the "pre-start" at the south end..
What a way to start our day's adventure! 
(Fortunately it didn't hurt that much) 

More Nasty Bump !

Greg - pre-roller
(near river - blue trail, south end - he didn't go for it...)

Nasty Bump -six days later
(caution - not for the squeamish...)
I'll give it two more days and if it doesn't start to get better - guess I'll need to see a doctor...

A Short Taste of West Rock Ridge

West Rock Ridge Trail - New Haven, CT

Having heard there were some once trail above the tunnels on the Merritt Parkway and reading about them on Crankfire; Greg and I decided to check them out...

- Judges Cave -
At the top of the ridge. Here is where we started the afternoon trek. 
(Morning time was spent on the other trails below the ridge to the east) 

- Battle Scars-Whew, it was a rough day.... I nearly had an endo / face plant after riding while holding Greg's tire.(It fell off his bike after an uphill climb that was mostly a "hike-a bike"athon in brutal humidity)
