In north Georgia right now, we are completely underwater. If feels like it has been doing nothing but raining for the past month non stop and we even made headlines with massive flooding several weeks ago that will make history books. When you match all of this water that is falling from the sky with gorgeous red clay, it equals very minimal ride time for us mountain bikers in the area as riding wet trails completely ruins the trail system.
So…what do us mountain bikers do to fulfill our fat tired obsessions? A friend of mine, Al, is known for many things online. His various bacon exploits (first of us to actually cook and eat the Bacon Explosion) are well documented and he is known for tearing up Photoshop for the purposes of humor against other mountain bikers on the local forum. If you ever had the question, “what does a mountain biker with a little free time, some creativity and couple of beers do when off the bike for an extended period of time do?” This video is your answer.
Quite possibly the funniest mountain biking related video I have ever seen, Al portrays our frustration with all things saturated in this several minute clip. While there are a couple of inside jokes and puns at local guys, almost every mountain biker in the world should be able to relate by plugging in the name of their trails and riders. For that reason, this video…as of this morning…already has over 11,000 views on YouTube.
I founded Bike198 back in 2007 and started riding bikes seriously in 1994. A lot has changed since that time and one of the greatest releases is still getting out on the bike and shredding trail or tearing up the road.
