Hello blogladites. It is time for ol bdiddy to blow the cobwebs off of the keyboard and put up a fresh post! First post of the ' o 6 to be exact. The pic above is from 2004 MT,CO,NE combined mounting biking adventure to Moab. Rick aka "SHREK" the dude front and center here had a purdy ruff '05 story here
I met Rick in '03 my second visit to MT. Not more than 5 minutes after meeting this guy he had offered me a beer started flipping me some shit and then proceeded to tell me about the sweet Bitterroot singletrack he was going to show me the next morning. In the first five minutes I met this dude I knew exactly why these guys all pulled together and did something so cool for someone that is at the core of their group. I was bummed to hear your Dad is gone. I instantly thought of the time he came to our rescue. Rick, Chad, and Dan had planed on taking me on a ride called overwhich falls. It was a shuttle we left chad's truck at the bottom and took Rick's to the start point. Good ride 30 minute climb and at least three times that long coming down. Somehow the keys had been left at the trailhead. Rick says no problem gives his pop a call and 10 minutes later there he was glad to be able to help out. I will always remember that ride back down the mountain I think he turned me greener than an Ogre. Super nice guy and I was glad he came to help out that day.
Rick ya got a new bike to ride that's already a sign that this year will be better for you. Keep the good vibe going up there in MT. I look forward to riding with you in '06!
