riding with Gregg is dangerous
« on: April 29, 2009, 09:21:06 AM »
i broke my brake lever, bent a rim, and rashed up my arm at santos
another guy had to go to the ICU (how;s that guy doin by the way?)
and last night while riding, i had a little pygmy rattler strike at my foot(it was on the trail and i almost ran it over)
then Gregg almost ran into me after slowing for the snake
 
i did manage 10.5mph average through WTA though :)

Nice job man, glad you're still in one piece!
Gregg is the reason they're considering putting restrictor plates on bikes.

If you get any faster, watch out for him to try to push you off the trail and down a hill to slow you up.

he kept rubbing my rear tire and screaming at me!

on a side note... at a glance, snake looked like a ball python in pattern, but would have had to been a VERY young ball python to be that size, Gregg had a better look at it

Gregg is quite accomplished at pushing people off of the trails.  Yes Gregg, I'm STILL whining about you pushing me off of Gatorback.  ;D

Joe,
 
You are doing great! He pedaled for about 2 hours straight with very little stopping and more importantly, Very little coasting.....every time he would coast, I would almost run into him. It won't be long before you have to change your name to something more appropriate.
 
The cardio that you are improving will really help you when you are out riding the technical stuff. There is a lot to be said for being able to breath while riding moonscape,or gatorback.
 
Saddle time, spinning and yes miles.....Keep at it!

Who is Gregg?   ???   I used to ride with a guy by that name. Bigger guy that lost a bunch a weight. He listened to funny music and drank a bunch of diet pepsi. I wonder what ever happened to him.  ;) 
My bike is more than a toy; it's my vessel.
