Earth Day, 2008 is upon us...

Here's the backstory:

Note that the "...neutrality of this article is disputed" but generally speaking it marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Interestingly enough, not all greenies enjoy the 'holiday.' Some... "Bright Greens" ( apparantly think it's a bit too watered down. What i find fascinating is how there is apparantly several shades to being green! At any rate, hug a tree tomorrow and take a moment to enjoy the sun eh.

The Eve of Destruction

It is that time of year again. That time of year for the annual pilgrimage to one of Mountain Biking's epicenter's of activity: spectacular Moab, Utah. With this pilgrimage comes many meanings like ROAD TRIP, adventure, biking, wilderness, empty and unbounded landscapes. It means it is time to reenter the West. The proverbial painted desert. As Martin Sexton put it, all that land the "Hopi's lost to Spain." It's time to retouch on old memories, and bolt on some new ones. Time for a few too many Eddie McStiff's brews imbibed under a starlit canvas of black velvety sky.

Thus far, our plan consists of a ride on Mary's Loop outside of beautiful Fruita, CO on Friday and a suitable Moabbian ride on Saturday. If you've a suggestion, please leave a note below. Sunday will be Over the Edge perhaps...

Stay tuned as we chronicle these further misadventures...
