2/28 lil Peek

yeah, spring is right around the corner




not that I am dwelling

or anything;

learning a little more on Shitbag

I know where he works,

what he drives

 his liscene plate number

when he gets off

 what direction he drives

the legal definition of assault


right when he turned around and started driving back towards us hollering assholes is when I was genuinely felt threatened 


2/26  FAH  Q  too


Hey m*ther f*cker what you doing with that camera?

I'm gonna take your picture.

Well take this...




That pretty much wrapped up the exchange.


that had went on for like 2 MINUTES!


I don't know this guy.  But it is an all too familiar attitude - approaching pickup taking his half of a lane and a lane half road, right down the middle.  A stacked game of chicken.  Phillip tells him to get over when passing.  So Mr. Green Truck turns it around and stalks us down the dead end road that leads to the sewer plant. So we hold up enough to see what's up. 

In between the profanities he wants to know who has more right to be on the road.  I thought we did.  He told us otherwise.  dude needs to ride a bike, maybe he could work off some of those aggressions.  yeah right, we're the assholes.

It's all fun and games till someone gets hurt. 

Jacob says it is just a flesh wound and a smashed fingernail. 




2/21 Classique Day


Map My Ride


The classic deTour Mason;  Classic because this loop in some sort of fashion has been the 50 miler staple for quite some time, maybe 10 years?.  Pavement that reaches up into southern Mason County for prime county roads consist of hopefully hard pac dirt, seasoned oh so lightly with any gravel.  Sweet sections of KT possibilities like Lookout Point and the single track at Blackjack are usually mixed in depending on the transport mode.  Fat tires was the call for such a phat day a we found some hub high mud after about an hour. That turned to red clay just to keep it interesting before the old county roads firmed up for pristine moto-ing.  Quick picnic at Lookout fueled us to the half-way point and a solid ten mile stretch of dirt track from out around Evergreen, crossing over to Guyan Ck, and ending up at the mouth of Bear Hollow.  One last foray up to Huddleston Knob included a little hike a bike up Wooly to tour the gas fields of Caanan Lands, before finishing up in five hours fitty.

2/15 Pick Up Rides

The dry up is in place and the clean up is looking good.  Barboursville Park work is knock in the head.  Big fat tire thanks to everyone that helped out.  The troops have cleared and groomed the scout trails out and around camp.  Lot of stuff was down and now it is gone.  with maybe an interesting twist or two to boot... It is that type of mud that sticks to you tires, then dries concrete like

2/9 More Words

Ron's Pill  from back in the club car.  I particularly like the shot of Andy way back in the ditch after the first fumble, before his second handover seen below.  I thought he only went down once - now it's twice as good.


I was joking about the hill climb session up Wildcat.  I got smoked on it.  Chasing down on foot the geared technology in front.  Bastards.

Barboursville FAT Tire Brethren

Beech Fork Association of Trails



bFAT is an informal group of riders who appreciate the land and ride for a healthy well being.



Beech Fork is mostly a single track trail that follows around the lake leading into a combination of creek bed, hill climb, and fast downhill back to the lake.  Barboursville's Park has some nice runs from the top with  numerous scenic overlooks from the  sheer  cliffs and steep drops. The flat single track that follows the river and comes out behind the lake - is where the real fun can begin or end. Click on the link at top of page - above left to see a map!    The  Kanawha Trace and Adahi Trails are 32 mile and  17 mile multi user trails crossing over private land.  Check with the Tri-State Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America for trail information and registration.
