Video: 'Mulberry Gap', a North-Georgia Gem
@weaselssubie: There are still those 2 switchbacks, and the spot before the stream has a spicy section. I still find Bear Creek worthy of attention, especially if you climb of from Mulberry Gap and the hit P1&2, but I'm just old, been riding North Georgia since 1985 (Stanley Gap was my first) and I don't want my rigid BTW, Mulberry Gap has some trails and a small pump track onsite that are fun to play on.

Truly a one-of-a-kind of place! Awesome people that treat and feed you so well! I love it so much I go several times a year. There are other trails not far from Mulberry Gap that are fun too. Love the Gap!

Enter To Win a OneUp Components Prize Pack - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway
I agree, awesome pedals. Took a minute to get used to the bigger bearing but then no problem. Did finally replace them with Yoshi pedals on a new bike earlier this year, which are also awesome! But put the OneUps back on the old bike. The OneUp pedals are easily serviceable with their rebuild kit as well

Opinion: The Opposite of Learning to Fly
So I'm 57 and had a rotten crash last year the day before Father's Day: distal 4-piece collarbone break (2 surgeries, 1 to put the JJ-hook in, 1 to take it out -proudly displayed on garage fridge...), 2 broken ribs and "mildly" separated shoulder. Probably one of the worst crashes I've had, came in too hot on a steep jump and went OTB. I received a crap--load of crap from my family and friends (not my wife or 19yo son though) but I worked hard at my rehab and when you fall off the "horse", you don't get back on you get a new "horse", lol, so i bought a new Pivot in January and started training for the Fall ride in Zion Utah. Finally getting my confidence and fitness back, so much so that after attending a professional meeting in Vancouver I went up to Whistler and rented bikes. The first day I rode an enduro bike on the local trail system and had a blast although I had to push through some mental fear to ride some of the wooden features (Pinnochio's Furniture) and then spent two days riding the downhill courses. Although I stayed on the greens and blues only (loved the technical stuff more than the flow stuff) I had an exhilaratingly great time! Of course those techy greens seemed closer to black trails I ride in North Georgia it was still big fun. Have I slowed down a bit, yeah, sorta, and ZI know when I'm not "feeling it" and have learned to back off and, as others have said, not push it to ride another day.. I love riding so much that I can' foresee giving it up and if that means that I have to back off some, then I hope I have the wisdom to do just that. This article was a great and timely read, as are many of the comments.

Story Time: Your First Day at the Bike Park
I'm in Vancouver for a meeting in June and heading up to Whistler for a couple days. Never been to a bike park either but I'm doing trail riding the first day and hitting the bike park the second day, only easy bike park stuff for this 57yo, I can always go back...right? Have to admit, this article did put an itty bitty lump in my throat....

13 Things I Loved In 2021: Brian Park
Dumonde! yeeessss! that stuff rocks! A bike mechanic (thanks Chuck!) turned me onto that stuff back in Fall 2016 when I bought a new bike, the bottle of original formula is just about gone so I'll be hunting down a new bottle. The lite formula works well too, and I have purchased it at REI.

Inner Bar Ends Banned & Other UCI Rule Changes for 2022
I love my TOGs when climbing non-techy stuff or cruising on gravel to another trailhead. Nice to have a change of hand position. Do get asked about them occasionally. Now, bring back the purple anodized Club Roost bar ends!
