was out with a mate earlier for a pootle up the local hill.
me on a dialled alpine and him on his 6" FS Giant. me a normal bike helmet, him a full face with shin/knee pads. we found a few spots to jump from, riding and flying off the edge and landing a 2-3m downhill. nothing too silly. he wsn't 'out' jumping me and i wasn't neccessarily out jumping him.
mate starts to refer to everything as freeride. "ah, i love this freeride man". really just riding, isn't it?
3-6ft drops aren't freeride, are they? think matey was surprised that the HT could take it, despite the fact he started on about a 200mm FS.....
where does freeride begin and riding end?
