stone cold lampin'
we like bikes!
Saturday, December 30
okay, one more update



headed out for a short spin tonite on the rigid mtb. it was butt puckering conditions at best with just a little bit of cold mixed in. I managed to keep the rubber side down, which sure is good now that i'm gettin' old and shit. Cuz the shit don't heal like they used to.

Anyway...this is a trail network close to home called coyote coullee....maybe totaling 13 miles of singletrack. Today it was about 50% of dirt the other 50% was snow and ice covered. It's been a while since i've ridden that much ice in one day. I prefer it with dryer and warmer conditions. Is it spring yet ?



happy new year all !

on this bottom pic you can see that the ice appears a little thin out in the middle.....welp, that was my take on it too so i skirted around to the outside and you can see my snow track across the ice.

Damn, I am super jealous. We've got a ton of snow here, I havn't seen dirt in 2 weeks.

If you are looking for dirt, we have plenty of it here. Come on down and play in the warmth of the desert.
Happy New Year to everyone!

yeah, Ridgecrest, CA. We moved here on Halloween so that I can work full time on Bionicon. It has been a crazy two months, but I love what I am doing.

my dad had a long term (3month) job to do in Ridgecrest when i was in 9th grade or so and i went along for the trip. So i got to spend three months in Ridgecrest during the summer months. Fuckin' HOT !! I still skated everyday and it was the first time i ever rolled in on a big ramp.

My granfather also lives in Kernville. Make sure you check that town out....i'm sure there is awesome riding there.

I know Kernville! It is a place of epic rides and big days. There is a 26 mile shuttle there that starts at 9500ft and ends at 3000ft. the last 8 miles drop 4500ft and is all single track. I would love to have you all out here to ride for a few days. Regarding the ramp, what year were you in the 9th grade? Depending on the time, you either rode a ramp in Inyokern or one at my friend's house Art and Daniel. The inyokern ramp was moved to my house when I was in the 10th grade. 11 ft tall, 20ft wide, with 2ft of vert. Did you ride a ramp with steel coping or pool coping?

Blogger Chaybo said...
i believe it had steel coping. I also think it was only a few blocks west of the main drive. I picked up a new deck while i was there too....a wide board alva.

as for the timeframe, i had to call my pops to confirm and i was actually in 8th grade which was in 85' or so.


i also remember the twenty-five cent hamburger stand. That place kicked ass.

Unfortunately, times do change. Both ramps are long gone and the hamburger stand is now a Wienerschnitzel. On the other hand, the city built a concrete skate park and my friend now owns an awesome skate shop in town. 1985 is the year I first moved to town.
