2WT enjoys summer in September

24 09 2008
We had a great turnout on a beautiful summer evening in September. Nathan joined us and found out that BMX skills are an awesome foundation. Christen is tenacious and worked hard on focus.  Clay and Alesa worked on their balance sweet spots.  Greg is getting refined and controlled on the rear wheel.  Matt joined us on his fixed gear for a bit.  Rumor has it that Terri has her own secret practice sessions 🙂 Mark and I need to start our own secret practice sessions or we will be left behind!

I did not take many pictures, but here are a few.

Hey everybody, we will ride at 6 PM on Tuesday 9-23-08. I’m looking forward to being back after missing a week. I’m glad you all rode on without me.

See you at the Union Street Bridge at 6 PM!





2WT rode on without me.

22 09 2008

I was unable to make it last week, but suggested that everybody show up and ride anyways. Well, they did, and they had a great time too! Mark Hanson emailed me pictures and an update. He did such a good job I’m just going to post his review below.

Jonathan,

We had a great ride tonight. Martie brought Alisa. Alisa learned to wheelie up a curb, lift the backwheel while coasting, dropped the drop at Minervas, rode the skinny at Minervas. Also she was trackstanding without the trash can! She has done a lot tonight and her smile at her accomplishments was priceless.( she also got bit by the pedal and kept riding)

Christen was awesome tonight. She could control her wheelie onto the picnic bench and lock the brakes and balance, she is ready to hop!!! She too can easily lift the back of the bike and even side to side. She is ready to hop the back up the up at Minervas. You should have seen her attempt the long skinny at Minervas she tried and tried. She is tenacious!

We then went to the marina rocks Greg was as awesome as usual. Pedal kicking up and hopping up some pretty big stuff.

Don was working on his wheelie to the picnic table, and swiveling his back around to put it up on the curb then lift the front up. He is definetely hopping the back up better and better. Missed you.

Sweet Mark, thanks for the post! Here are some pics of the action.





New faces at 2WT

14 09 2008

I was a volunteer mechanic for a clinic at the broke spoke bike co-op ( http://www.broke-spoke.org) last Saturday, and some of the attendees of the clinic joined us for 2WT. Alisa and her mom Marte, and Christen learned some new skills. Matt from the fixed gear crew joined us part way through our ride as well. We introduced him to the world of wide handlebars and really good brakes 🙂
