Places...on a mountain bike.

The mountain bike is a G2, if that means anything. 21 gears, front shocks and apparently not quite tall enough for me.
Colorado is actually pretty great for biking. Even in Colorado Springs where the government is super libertarian, they do a fair bit with parks because they know it is key to the tourism industry. Good bike paths and parks. The park I was at today was really great and it is just three miles away so I biked there and back (and didn't have to pay to get in because apparently they only charge cars). I've got a picture that I'll put up at some point...need to find a more discreet place than tinypic for personal pics I think.

Sighing happily.  Tree of Life is even better after a second viewing - lived up to and then exceeded the first.

Cool. I'm not too familiar with mountain bikes and I've never heard of Orange Bikes but poking around there website I like what I see. British mountain bikes... who would've though?!

I don't know my own bike well enough. The brand is Karakoram and it is a All GT model, not G2. :-[

Writing reviews for The Wicker Tree and Troll Hunter.

Thinking about doing a Haneke marathon, then posting all the little reviews in a single thread of glory and disturbing...ness.

That'd be great, Fugee.  I've been catching up on Haneke, myself.

I agree that would be a good marathon. I might follow along myself if you are doing it slowly, as there are a few I need to watch and a few I need to revisit....although I am worried about revisiting a couple of them.....
