    • Ok, to keep up the personal experience stories.... I've been riding a bit less lately through this winter.  I consider technical stuff my strength, but I've been a bit rusty lately and I'm finding my need to stay sharp less important. (all that is a disclaimer for what's next)  Back before Xmas I took my older and younger boys to ride Revelie Peak for the first time.  We had a good time and everyone enjoyed it.  We all sessions the jump & flow lines over on the west side of the property.  We then chose to ride to the top of decision point.  It was suggested to us to come back down Super D.  I was just in chill-mode coming down Super D and pulled up short towards the lower section on a techie narrow step down (followed shortly by a big roll-in).  We all stopped and looked at it and I said, "yeah, I could do it but I'm cool with walking it today"......my 11 yr old says, "I can do this, I'm gonna go back up and give it a go".  My initial thought was that he was going to eat $hit.  But I let him go (and learn) on his own.  As he comes into it he's all out of position and can't get to the line.  He bails.  (I thought that might be it)  Nope, he goes back up and tries again.  This time rocking the whole thing (albeit not too smoothly).  As we all promptly ride away together, he comments to me, "heck, I'm even on little wheels dad...".  I contemplate to myself going back and riding it so that I can save some face.  But I decided that he can have that little victory over his old-man.  And it truly was.  I'll forever, remember this day because I'm certain there will be many more to come.  
    • you probably need to buy him a new bike...
    • My 8 year old has pretty much hijacked all my riding time. He can kind of do the full walnut route, but prefers to just cycle log loops, powerline, and close with bmx. Then my oldest (13) started to join us. She cant quite hang with the 8 yo. And the 5 yo is now going as well which means  I get stuck doing .6 and log loops only.

      What's the deal with this?  I posted a link from Craigslist in the Craigslist thread and I got a penalty point?
      Thanks for looking into this.

      Soft muddy trails even with the afternoon sunshine.
      I'd give it a day or two and the hero dirt will appear! Our Wednesday group ride is cancelled but we will do an urban ride from the shop instead.

      Vegas MTB
      and better than anything, if you go to the Grand Canyon while in Vegas, keep right on driving into Flagstaff and ride Schultz Pass, that's actually great riding! Fact:Flagstaff was Tom Walton's inspiration for Bentonville AR, it's really fun riding and free camping too.
