empty places always stoke me out and trails that have great flow, no cliff edges and good dirt pretty much sum it up : )

what's yours 303?

speech bubbles were barely funny in 2003

I think thats the beauty of mountain bikes. I don't have to have on ideal place. For example, riding the Whole Enchilada in Moab, you start in the mountains, head up to alpine meadow, descend through dense forrest, end up in the desert and then in a van down by the river.

To me, ripping empty singletrack in the woods, with good dirt is top notch. Nothing beats riding new trail, the feeling of the roost of loamy dirt on the back of my calfs is like none other. Building and riding out in the desert comes in a close second.

My dream place is any place where I can disconnect from the real world and only have my wheels in thought entangled with the surround beauty of forest, mountain,plains, or desert. To be soul,bicycle, and earth interconnected as one. And the only real thing going through my head is BRAAAAAAAAAAP!!!!!

probably a set of jumps that just flow together that are fast and shoot you just up with nice size gaps. Also they have to have some freaking amazing lines just anything you can think of and puttin it all together with a sick ghetto vert wall to finish it off that looks like so much fun

the most important thing to me is anywhere with my mates. Nothing better than aving the boys with you and having good craic. Good flowly downward pointing trails not much of a jumper so some sick single track...

Gravity....I fought the law but the law won

I ask for nothing more than a day with the Allied Compound krew here in Austin. Riding something that you created until dusk then hit a transfer line to campfire and pabst.

A nice flowing, fast single track, with some big ass berms to rail hard. A few drops and jump sections, all with hard pack dirt, rather then the muddy shit in the UK at the moment.

Thats so hard to answer, maybe that's a good thing though. Whether its DH or trail riding it can be so different from day to day.

Saying that I fully though Ride don't slide into barber's Chair was RAD this summer.... the last section blew my mind, hahah! Or......Original Sin, into Blue velvet, into in deep, into duffman, into renegade, into dirt merchant rounded off with the GLC, no stopping. In Whistler! oh and Canadian Open.

In the UK my trails on my trail bike. Sheet Dirt jumps and Hindhead tracks.

Thats only so far. I think most places become amazing when your on a bike.
