Just for Fun Friday – Honey Run Mountain Biking Edition

Casey and his family have come and gone, and although my house is a little quieter, they are already missed.  We made the most of our time together, though.  We rode 14 miles of single track, over 75 miles of gravel together, and we spent the weekend with family for my grandma’s 90th birthday party.  If you haven’t seen the video from our Dirty Jenkins ride, then I suggest you drop everything and do so right now!  Below you’ll find some photos and a video from our mountain bike ride at Honey Run down at Lake of the Ozarks.  Hopefully this will satisfy your insatiable hunger for all things Virtus until we get a post and video ready of our Boone-Doggle Ride (that Bob had to miss).  Here you go… Enjoy…

Austin's Bent Rim Mountain Biking

Less than a mile into the 14 mile ride, Austin bent a rim... going uphill. We smashed it into the ground to get it straight enough to finish the ride, though.

Casey Mountain Biking at Honey Run

Imagine that... Casey is smiling again.

Austin and Luke at Honey Run

Austin forgot his Jersey back in NY... Or he's too embarrassed to wear it.

Kid in a Tree

Austin in a Hobbit Hole... Sort of.

Post-Ride Beer

Post-Ride Beer. If you're ever in Up-State NY, you need to try some beer from the Genesee Brewing Company. Actually, Genny and Genny Light are pretty terrible, but this "Bock Beer" was pretty good. As far as I know, they didn't have this when I lived there. The can is pretty cool, too.

Sasquatch Lambs

Which is the real Sasquatch?

Post-Ride Meal

Since I really don't wanna eat dog food next month, I opted for this instead of pizza for my post-ride meal.

Little Girl Middle Finger

It's nice to know that Casey is raising his daughter right.

Bearded Lambs

Austin has finally become a man. I'm a little jealous since his beard is more full than mine. Big thanks to Kage for picking this up for me to give to Austin.

  1. That hat looks good on Austin. Way better than on me. Guess there’s a reason (most) women don’t have facial hair.

    I’m remembering that wheel-repair strategy from Binder. Whatever works…

  2. So in the last photo, what does Austin’s t-shirt say? And what language is that? I’m guessing either Arabic or the language from Lord of the Rings.

    • It’s actually English, but it’s hard to read. It says, “Is-tan-bul.” it’s from Bora, my foreign exchange brother from Turkey. Although, it does look like something from Middle Earth.

  3. Have there been some recent sitings of Sasquatch in Missouri???

  4. Thanks for sharing your bike ride at the Lake of the Ozarks. I could not find the video in this post, but it could just be me being dumb. I wanted to share it with my followers. I just recently got into mountain biking and its nice to see folks biking in the Ozarks. If you can post that video, I would love to share it.
