2012 Hilltop Grasshopper

Had a great time taking pictures at the 2012 Hilltop Grasshopper kids race. Pictures are a bit late but here they are, I had a vacation to attend! 🙂

Mountain biking in Essex County needs your help. If you think you would have purchased these photos, please send that money to my favorite organizations on my behalf. Your time is also a commodity which can be donated.

http://www.jorba.org/ is the Jersey Off Road Biking Association. They provide massive efforts in trail building and maintaining and also providing group mountain bike rides and supporting family rides such as this one. An absolutely invaluable organization.
And please, if you feel that mountain biking is not a crime, contact our County Executive and voice your support for mountain biking in Essex County. Currently it is not legal to ride a bicycle in Essex County parks.

2012 Darkhorse 40

10th Annual! Rain held off till the bitter end, worked out awesome. Hot day though.

All the pics:


Green Nimble Nine with white Formula Oro brakes. Looks familiar! I have white rims on mine though. A few years ago my “through the water” picture of Seth on his old bike made it as the banner of www.gtluke.com,  just because it looked cool, especially with the orange rims. And then not even knowing who Seth was, we both pre ordered green Nimble Nine’s. Finally got to say hi this year in person, he’s from Maine.

2012 Singlespeed-a-polooza went off fantastic! Beautiful weather, fantastic event, and millions of single speed 29ers. Okay maybe not millions. Check out the pictures:
