Umm Mikey put your bi-focals on old man he was climbing when he died not
mtn biking.

Hey I want to thank you by the way, I'm following the rule that
whenever you post I have to go for a ride. Thanks to you I'm riding
better and harder then I ever have not to being in the best shape I've
ever been in.

I'd like to suggest an addition to the rule that whenever you post we
go for a ride.

I'd like to add that every 5th post by you we do trail work, either
maintaince or expanding a current trail, or even better develop a new
trail. With permission of the land owners of course.

Jason


Dittos,
The more posts from Mikey the more we ride! He is finally helping to
expand the sport!!

And we thought you were gone. But never fear, there have been several
other fruit cakes lately cross posting from other groups to take your place.

The Mike Vandeman Project really should be codified.

[1] Everyday he posts take one offroad ride.
[2] Every day he makes more than 3 posts, do an extra 10 km of trail
riding.
[3] For every 5th post undertake a trail improvement project.
[4] For very 10th post take a photo of a favoured trail and post a link so
he can see what he is accomplishing.
[5] For every 25th post adopt a trail and name it in his honour.

Can we back-date this too, 'til about 1995?

Liar.



Yo' Mikey! Thanks to all your posts I went on an extra long trail ride and
uploaded another photo so you can see the trails being ridden. Hope you
enjoy them.

It must make you feel good to know your efforts are contributing to the
amount of trail riding occurring because of you. Oh, and I really liked the
links you added to your website that explain your 'logic'.

http://www.geocities.com/crazeemikey/index.html

It make's your posts so much more comprehensible. It was thoughtful to
include a long and short version as well.

Keep it real and keep pedalling, bro'!

Any idea where some of the trails Mike V has on his web site are? It
would be a hoot if trail usage went "up" on those trails because he was
advertising them on his site... some of the single track photos look
like they need some riding...

I know he's in SoCal. Exactly where in LaLa land he lives I couldn't say.
San Diego area?

In any case: Think globally. Act locally. Ride where ever you might be.
