 dude the sound of his voice makes you feel so bad for him and you can see there is no way in hell he is just jumping in to get it. It's gone and he knows it. Props for getting it back eventually though.

 I wouldn't even think about the rapids, i would just run and dive for it and grasp it and bring it back to shore no matter what it would take.

 That trail is amazing! Where is that?

And I'm with everyone else. Kinda sad and funny at the same time. A lot of us would've responded the same way too. Maybe it's a good idea to have a leash on a bike in some places .

 Thanks!.....built it myself. It's in Nelson, BC, right in the backyard of my old house.
I should make a sign for the trailhead...."Bike Leashes Recommended" haha!

 I agree man - a sweet stunt trail next to class 5 rapids?!? too awesome. Have you had the chance to run them in a kayak yet? that would make for a killer day of all around riding.

 haha yes, but it was an intense operation involving a rappel 50 feet down a canyon wall and then back up with the bike teathered. The bike sustained surprisingly little damage.
