GrassWhistler

I do way more interesting stuff powered by just my feet (www.hikeitlikeit.com) but the more ways there are to explore and play, the more joy. Mostly I chase my kids down the trails and watch them grow and enjoy the trails in their back yard.

My first legit skateboard was a Caballero deck that I got from the local skateshop back in the day. Good to see Steve still out there doing what he loves. Very talented guy.

Canfield Bikes Prototype Stolen in Salt Lake City
@wda1wustl: Maybe you care or don't but here's something to think about... calling people junkies does nothing but dehumanize them and make it easier to treat them like they don't matter. If you think lawmakers who legalized drugs caused this, you should give that a lot more thought. Legal or not, drugs have the same potential to cause problems. Addiction isn't about drugs, it's about people who are struggling and don't know how to cope. It's a mental health issue, the same as homelessness tends to be. So, what we need in this country is not more illegal drugs, it's more compassion towards others and trying to care a little about the people we share this existence with. At the least, you can see that the "me first" approach fails because you're not the only person living in your sphere and now these other people that nobody cared about are at your feet, making you feel unsafe. You want them gone but you already know, that isn't going to magically happen. The answer to this starts way higher up than the street level. It's about prevention, getting universal healthcare for everyone, and caring, just a little, about others so we don't end up with hordes of people on the streets suffering from drug abuse and mental health problems.

Video: Saturday Sends #9
I'm riding in the hills of Marin in the 2020s and this still describes me, haha. It's not just young riders who have talent though, much respect for the older doods out there. Yesterday I saw a guy who was probably ~ 60 hit a pretty decent drop directly into a step up with mandatory gap over some fallen trees. My buddy was like 'he's probably gonna be chillin with his grandkids tomorrow for easter... I wonder if they even know how hard their grandpa shreds..."

Bike Check: Cole Bernier's Bowhead Reach 3-Wheeled Adaptive eMTB
This is sick. Would love to see Bowhead consider an adapted Reach that can be pedaled with E-assist. My kiddo has cerebral palsy and doesn't have the core muscle control for balance, but she has some use of her legs still. She has an ICE Adventure can do some light gravel riding on it, but it doesn't have the traction to go uphill, nor the handling needed for real trails.

Ride Concepts Partners with High Fives Foundation to Raise Funds for Adaptive Bike
This is awesome. I didn't know about the adapted camp at Northstar. My daughter rides a similar ("tadpole" style) bike because she has mild cerebral palsy and can't ride a standard bike. It's not anywhere near burly as these bikes, but she can do some light gravel riding in it. Her younger brother rides with me. A few days ago he was pushing her up some big dirt bumps so she could ride down the other side... she loves it. We're gonna have to check this camp out. I only knew about the one up in BC.
