Soulride on Sunday with the "Mockerockers" (muck rockers:-))

On Sunday I needed sort of a bit of regeneration. Stöffi und Duffy called and invited me to do a ride with teh "Mockerockers". Stöffi is a long-time all-out racer, whom I have known since she was a licce gurrrrrl (in fact, way back in history:-), I first rode with her dad, Uwe, who was a hardcore rider and laidback guy all the way back to the stone age:-)) and Duffy´s a former skateboarder. Both are very cool people, and I like them both a lot. We met at Möhre´s place. Möhre is a physiotherapist who only but recently took up mountainbike riding and enjoys it a lot. I was surprised to see a crowd of friendly people, some of which I have been somehow acquainted to for years, as Yvonne (the one with the grey/black jacket in the pic below), whom I know from
a very different occasion. Yvonne and Stöffi having a pre - ride chat. To the right is Duffy doing business:-) NOT;-).

We started with a relaxed uphill on the road. Everyone waited for each other, and the rookies gave friendly encouragement to the beginners. It was a very great atmosphere.







Leader of the pack´s Uwe, the one with the blue jersey. He rides for ages and certainly knows how to put the pedal to the metal, but he also enjoyed a relaxed and souly ride with the rookies. Great guy! He is a very skilled blacksmith, too who works for Railion logistics/DB /Schenker. It´s funny, but he´s a tutor of Kai´s, afriend of mine whom you might know through this blog, the mad bastard*ggg*.
The pack... 
 
...all smiling and having good-natured fun...:-)  We met Möhre´s parents in the woods, doing some jogging.




We stopped for a bit of a break, had some food and foraging:-) sloe and rose hips and.... APPLES*ggg*...
Uwzilla*ggg*.


Havin´fun on this chute, which actually was a bit steeper. But with some tutoring, all managed to ride it safely and enjoying it!

We then made for a secret freeride spot and had some half an hour of fun there. Great!

That´s what happens when you put a bike on a skateboarder...*ggg*

Trying it out carefully...
















And here´s a vid from that spot...























Then we rode home on the road. It was a great ride so far, but should get a fitting conclusion....
We stopped at Möhre´s place, and had a delicious round of coffee. I made sort of a presentation tutorial on doing  a bunny hop, which will be available in video form soon.
It was simply a nice day, and one of the greatest weekends for years, meeting with the greatest people there are, with great riding, great weather and all. Life is good like this...
