    I think that’s the first time I’ve ever seen something on Kickstarter that I’m tempted to back!
    Some cracking photos in that collection.

    That does look pretty good – could be tempted come payday.

    Also useful to post a copy to repack rider when he comes here for his quarterly thread about how amazing he is to have invented riding bikes off road…

    I love it. On the rsf website they used to have an archive of journal write ups. Some were really well written and enthralling much better than 99% of the CGOAB write ups.

    I love the attitude of the RSF, just get on with it. Less navel gazing it appears.

    I’m sure he’d appreciate a copy. The RSF seemed to take a gentlemanly walk across the hills with their bikes most of the time, wasn’t a lot of brake-smoking downhill going on there.

    Look forward to seeing this.

    Something he’s never claimed to do.

    Fantastic. I knew a little about RSF a long while ago when my riding conssited of road racing and training – and was quite intrigued. Since then I’ve been to many of those places (on a full sus, not the bikes they had) and have total respect. These pix sum up a great sense of adventure.

    I’ve got bound copies of the RSF journals from the beginning in 1955 to 1984.

    It would be nice to be able to get the appropriate photos for each trip journal.

    IIRC we latterly went around the houses and eventually agreed that he’d/they’d invented the word mountainbiking.

    Following his races with friends some went on to develop purpose built bikes instead of klunkerz.

    Perhaps they couldn’t read the posts properly, they may not have been using an IPad 🙂

    There’s obviously a market for capes, drum ups and offroad adventures on proper bikes.

    @ scruff9252, well said 🙂

    Don’t know how many times I have to deny ever making that claim, but here I am again having to do exactly that. The “invention” of off-road riding should properly be credited to Thomas Stevens in 1872. I wrote a whole book to deny that claim, but even that does not seem to be working here. It works everywhere else, so go figure.

    Gary Fisher and I were RSF members in the ’80s, AFAIK the only ones in California. We corresponded frequently with Geoff Apps. I wrote articles that appeared in the RSF Journal.

    If those guys had ever come up with the idea of coasting downhill, THEY would have “invented” mountain biking!

    I’ve backed it and joined the rsf. Membership gets you access to archives and all recorded routes! Amazing!
    Best thing I have seen on Kickstarter, a very worthy project to back
