:mrgreen: .....page 2!! Awesome rider1000!!

My conference (Upper Columbia) does a Teen Extreem event weekend two times a year. This fall we are doing the mountian biking honor :!: It will be awesome. We have done caving and climbing honors too, but I'm really excited to hit the trials this time!! They have been a real spiritual, social and physically fun time!!

Anyways, so do you use any other protective wear regularly? I have friends that have shin pads and other body armor!! I guess I'm not too crazy, and my pedels arn't too sharp eather... :lol:

No, I don't freeride. The people who use that kind of stuff are the ones who jump off of 20 foot cliffs. I don't have a death wish so I stick to the cross country approach. Light and fast, the more technical the better. hehe I mainly just stick with my helmet, gloves and of course shoes. 8) Fun stuff!!!!

I like to bike near my house. There is this neat-o graduall decline that gets me to 20-25 mph (unpaved, speed limit breaking. but hey, I can break some speed limits on foot. namely the 5-10 mph ones) when it gets paved, it levels out for ten feet and comes to a sharper (more sharp?) decline that gets me to thirty! Awsome. Getting back up, on the other hand, is a pain even in the first gear. My calves are toned just fine, FYI. That's not my problem. Trust me on this, really steep. :mrgreen:

OUCH!!!!!! :x :x :x

I just crashed again. I don't know what I'm going to do. arghhh

I was doing a charity ride for the American Cancer Society in Cohutta, Ga. It was supposed to be a 60 mile ride, i made 12. There was a pothole in the middle of the road, and when you have 100-200 people riding together, you can't see what's ahead. Evidently somebody hit the hole, flatted out, and then the rest of us preceded to pile up into him. I got it pretty bad, ending up in the ditch with a bike on top of me. I've got some knarly road rash on my elbow, and my bike got really screwed up. But I was able to get up a whole lot easier than last time.

The funny thing is I prayed that I wouldn't get a flat tire before we left. I didn't get a flat. :P

Oh yeah, I know how those hills are, you oughta try a road bike. I've hit 52 before. yehaw

Just a little tip.

If you decide to spend big bucks on your bike, be prepared to spend big to keep it working.

My "little" crash just cost me $115. OUCH!!! :shock: Oh well, thats the price of fun. :lol:

:lol: hehe... and what if you did freeriding :shock: Then you might be perpetually fixing your bike and getting hurt.

:? Yep, for me cross country biking, all mountian stuff, and all the tecnical you can dish up is fun! I value my bike and body to much for more... :mrgreen:

If my moutain bike doesn't have a major costly breakdown I need to be looking into road bikes. Although I think mountian biking will always be my first love.

That is why I don't freeride. I don't really want to kill myself or my bike.
Mountain Biking is still my first love. There is nothing like whizzing between trees and over rocks. It's a blast. Road biking is fun though, it's easier to find time to ride on the road. :wink:

I don't do cross country biking or mountain biking but it sounds fun. :) The most I do is ride around the community on my bicycle. :oops:

Oh Mitch, get your license dude. It's worth it! I didn't get my license for like a year and a half. I'm glad I have it now though. I think it's a good idea...helps teach responsibility. And...you get to watch neat videos from the 80s about traffic and stuff!!! It's Grand!!! LOL!!!
I suppose bikes are good too. :smt110

In oregon now they have a boaters licence. So I'll be have'n to take that test too... :( It can be taken on the internet though at least. But still WHY :x do you need a licence to drive a boat now?? O well I guess it'll make oregons waters safer.... :lol:

In the mean time I guess I'll just bike and swim around... :mrgreen:

Hey, if you take up running you could be a good triathlete. Speaking of which, anyone tried the triathlon honor yet :?:

ahh Katie.. :? common :cry:

That sounds like an awesome honor rider1000.... :mrgreen: I think I saw the requirements once. Isn't it from another division? Would you mind posting the requirments?? If I don't find them and post them first :D

:o Yea, I would love to try a real triatholon sometime!! That would be so fun. I use to jog somewhat regularly but havn't in awhile. I do enjoy running but I think the swimming and biking part is where I would get ahead.. :lol:

I won, I won, I got the requirments.. :lol: Probably wasn't fair but it's pretty easy to copy and paste from the NAD website!! It is a South Pacific Division honor!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Triathlon

1. Give three Bible principles and two Spirit of Prophecy principles to support exercise.
2. Give a report on the correct diet to maintain peak physical condition and how this
was maintained for the duration of training. Include fluid intake during and precompetition,
and in-competition food intake.
3. a. Give guidelines for correct training, including warm-up, stretching, injury
prevention, prevention of overtraining, etc.
b. Present your regular training program.
c. List the correct equipment, including bike, shoes, clothing.
4. Exhibit knowledge of the techniques of swimming, cycling and running.
5. Compete in all three aspects of a recognized triathlon event, either solo or as a
team member, where the triathlon is similar to:
a. Swim—500m
b. Cycle—15km
c. Run—10km
d. within 4.5 hours.


Triathlon, Advanced

1. Have the Triathlon Honor.
2. Developing a training schedule for yourself.
3. Keep a training log for two months.
4. Participate in an Advanced Triathlon as a solo participant, where the triathlon is
similar to:
a. Swim—1.5km
b. Cycle—40km
c. Run—10km
d. within 4.5 hours.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Cool, now someone needs to convert the kilometers to miles and meters to feet.

Common??? Just b/c I'm not an athletic person...besides volleyball and some football...doesn't mean I'm common!!! I just think it's a crazy thing to do...and somewhat dangerous. But that's just my opinion. Did you know Pastor Fred Riffel here in Spangle is training to do the Ironman??? It's in honor of his brother who died this past summer. I don't know the whole story, but I think that's great of him!!!

Man mitch, you really need that spell check. That could become an issue. :smt010

500m = 0.31 miles
15k = 9.32 miles
10k = 6.21 miles
1.5k = 0.93 miles
40k = 24.85 miles
10k = 6.21 miles

Ha ha, I win that one. Just a little tip. 5k = 3.11 miles makes it a litte easier


Sounds like a fun honor to try, I just might do it. :smt081

:oops: In the race for getting the requirements I let my spelling guard down a little didn't I!! I fixed most of it, I think anyways!

:o Thanks for doing the conversion rider1000. That isn't bad mileage for the regular triathalon! That would be fun! Might have to work out a bit more for the advanced.

:oops: Actually Katie, I meant to write "come on"!! :lol: It's ok if you don't think of it as somthing you want to do! I guess I would rather do something like this than football definitely and probibly volleyball too... :mrgreen: But we all have our own interests. :wink:

Cool, I've heard of him. But never met him or heard him speak. Good for him :!:

:lol: , My brother tried biking with his violin one time! It's one of those cases that have shoulder straps. Everything went good untell he did a "bunny hop" over a pot hole in the road. The violin case jumped up and cracked his helmet. Thankfully it was getting old so he replaced it soon afterward.

:o I guess you could take sugestions from the backpackers in the "Let's hang like the name of the board says" teen forum, although riding with a fully loaded backpack could be even more life threatening.. :? I mean you might be really hanging our hanged up somehow! :lol: :lol:

Oooo, that had to not feel good. I play a baritone, which is bigger than a french horn but about a third the size of a tuba. That would be hard to carry with me. :smt103

:idea: Oh baritone, that would be difficult.. :?

My conference's Camporee is next weekend, and on the pamphet they said there are good mountain biking trails... :mrgreen:

So, we are having the kids bring there bikes. I am trying to think of the best way to take them all. I bet there will probiblly be around 10-15 bikes.

I can fit 4 on a bike rack on a van and I'll probibly put the rest in a trucks bed or a trailer. Gotta be careful though in the way the bikes get set. I'm going to be putting my expensive bike on the van.. :lol:

Any ideas :?:


:D PAGE 3 RIDER1000!!
