Cranky Monkey 12 Hour Race Pictures/Videos

The 12 Hours of Cranky Monkey Mountain Bike Relay will challenge solo racers and teams of 2 or 3 as they complete as many 10-mile laps as possible in a 12 hour period, from 8am-8pm. Below is some footage of Austin, Lindsay, and Randy as they took on this endeavor.

Gambrill State Park

We made our venture into Gambrill State Park this past weekend. I will say one word about that place - ROCKY. It was a very technical ride because of the rocks, but it was very fun. I personally felt it was good training. We couldn't bike the entire ride though because it was too rocky in several places. So, it was a mixture of biking and hiking. Overall, I had fun but would only do this once a year. ~ Andrew

The first 10 minutes of ride involved going up a hill that was very rocky. This is us after going up the hill. Most of us got off our bikes and hiked. Several of us were exhausted.

Patrick and Matt contemplating how to go over rock.

Rest of us wondering if Matt and Patrick will make it over the rock.

You have to push yourself to get become a better rider and sometimes you push too hard. On May 15th at Schaeffer Farms I took a nasty spill off the bike and ended up separating my left shoulder. I'm hoping to be back on the trails mid to late June. Maybe start out with an easy loop on the white trail with the wife and ride with the group the next time if my shoulder feels good on the white trail. Since my picture wasn't up on the site yet, I wanted the first one to be a good one. Enjoy. ;~>
