After lunch these three brave souls, Brett Bymaster, Jonathan Young
and Roger Davies, rode to the top of Northstar. That's from about 6000
feet to about 8500 feet. At that altitude, even riding on level ground
feels like riding uphill. That's why they have lifts, you guys.
Our first ever MUni dual slalom race. That's Bruce Clifton on the left,
going up against Tim Bustos on the right. Though the course was made
for mountain bikes, it worked great for us as well!
Sierra Young, 8, was the only female finisher in the slalom.
Daniel Hopkins on his Rock Shox uni, racing against Bruce Bundy. Bruce
won the adult men's division, even though he'd only been unicycling
for about three months!
Bruce Bundy again, playing on some of the Mountain bike park's playground
Daniel Hopkins riding over the log ramp.
At the top of the second lift, riders prepare to separate onto novice
and advanced trails. The cycling trails aren't the ski runs, but criss-cross
the mountain while the ski runs tend to go straight down. It's interesting
seeing it all during the summertime.
The expert group heading down the Snake trail. No rattlers were spotted.
Flameout trail, "advanced riders only"! Matthew Udall, Bay
area guy #1, Lloyd Tabb, Bruce Bundy, Dan
Heaton (he was still hungry), Jim Hahn, Daniel Hopkins, Bay area guy
#2, Bruce Clifton and Bay area guy #3.
I hope those guys will email me with their names!
Riding off down the trail with a panoramic view of Truckee and points
east in the background.
Showing off in front of the nice background (Lloyd Tabb behind the camera).
Don't like the scenery? Then stay home. Bruce Clifton heading into the
Jim Hahn and Lloyd Tabb both falling off on a nasty sandy bit.
It's driver cam! After hosing ourselves off at the Northstar bike shop,
we headed into Reno to devour some buffet cuisine. Silver Legacy is
the big building, and Circus Circus is on the left.
