YZFRob:0 , Paved Bike trail:1



Fell down sunday on the mt bike on a paved trail. Front tire went one way, frame went the other after I clipped a friends rear wheel when he swerved. Scrapped knee and elbow. Good thing I wasnt clipped in. Hit the ground and rolled right up to my feet.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

please start talking in 3rd person now

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

^^This^^

I have a problem with not unclipping in time at intersections and have fallen over sideways more times than I'd like to admit.

My kid just started using clipless pedals, and every ride we do is very entertaining. I do feel if you don't crash each and every MTB ride you do, you aren't pushing it. Well done.

Well truth be known, I was fucking around bumping the rear tire of a friend in front of me. He just happened to swerve right then left just as I got up to it.

one time I clipped a tree trunk with my pedal and flipped completely forward and I had to kick my bike off me. Little did I know how strong my legs were and I kicked my bike up onto some branches 30ft in the air. I think the bike is still there at Palos.

It is and some birds have made a nest with it.



Nice work, Rob.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
