SA Funniest thing that ever happened to you while on a ride?
J I was on a ride with others and we were going up a very steep mountain with baby head size rocks. I was waiting for the guy ahead of me to make it. I thought he had so I started up. Well I came around a bend and he was down across the trail. There was no way around him and he was trying to get me to stop but there was no way to make it up if I did so I went up and over his bike. Pore guy never forgave me but wow it was awesome to make it and funny to see his face at the top. When he finally made it LOL. He was making fun of me before we started the ride. Well he sure could not after the ride.
