Celebrate life ride
 
Celebrate life ride
Sadly Perry's younger brother pasted away a short time ago.
our best wishs go out to his family.

Most of the time the best way to celebrate life is to do the things you love
A weeken in the mtn's with great company and some of the best single track around
was the plan.

Thanks Perry
