Tippie enjoying some healthy BC air

 Yeah, Tippie!

I remember this shot when it ran in BIKE magazine a truck-load of years ago, back when so-called hucking was all the rage. I stared at the picture...growing nervous inside...thinking..."Damn it. I'm probably going to have to try something like that." Some time afterwords, I talked myself into riding my then Psycle Werks Wild Hare off a maintenance shack at Mt. Norquay in Banff. 'Thought about if for a week beforehand. I recall the questionable condition of the roof, the crusty shingles, my friends all watching, and a tormented mind wondering, "What are you doing? You're up here now. 'Can't chicken out." A few last looks followed by a willful override of my instinct for self-preservation, and then, "Alright, fxck it."

I felt like I was sixty feet tall when I landed safely. No, eighty feet tall. Man, it felt good.

 I love that it' a "40+ year old dude" for today's POD, as I join that club today. I guess I don't have to hang up the bike in lieu of a walker today after all.

 Tippie is the man. Great for the sport and a heck of a nice guy. I said hi to him at Whistler recently and he was all "Hey, what's up brother?!" We've never met but he responded to me in such a genuine and warm way, it was rad. Go Tippie!
