The start of the Golden Bike Park Flow line, 1,500 feet of jumps and berms. Should be good fun.
My two longest periods off my bike have been this year. Traveling took me off the bike for 3 months and then this disc injury has been 4 months. I am really missing the feeling of catching air on the bike.
The Tittle is the page for the Golden Bike Park. The Parks and Rec. meeting was intense. Lots of fire on the side of the opposition. One thing I have learned for being apart of the biking underground is that the "normal" and unaware hate that you ride bikes. They just don't get it and if they don't ride then they want to stop you from having your place in the world to ride. The opposition does not want this near their homes. The park will be built it might just get delayed and/or moved.
For the last few months I have been meeting with some local guys to build a legal bike park in Golden. The City may approve it in the next few weeks. It is cool to be a part of it and see the working of how complex it is to get anything done in government. The plan is to have everything from little to big. Maybe not as big as the Downhill racing in 2003.
The last four days have been spent 3,000 feet underground in a mine learning about safety and the mine.
I drove home in a blizzard.
This toilet is 3,00o feet underground. The one we use near the class room is no longer white.
This is the shaft that the cage takes you down in. They brought down 80 ton trucks on this. Insane.
Heading down from 10,300 feet to 7,500 feet. Going that far underground is just a mind mess. It is similar to swimming in the ocean with 5,000 feet of water below you. It is just really odd to think about compared to daily surface life. My instructor has gone underground for 30 years.
