The future of cycling is bright and getting brighter...

Four wheel mountain bikes (mountain chairs?) are stirring new possibilities around the world. The roots of this new idea seem to be sprouting up in the UK with at least one group of wheel chairs riders called the "Rough Riders" http://www.roughriderz.co.uk/ Apparently the courses that these bikes use have to be modified a little from regular down hill course due to the fact that you can't peddle these bikes. Yet. I would imagine pulling up the front end when jumping a log or flying over a hill would be quite a challenge also. To say the future of mountain biking and cycling in general is bright would be a huge understatement after seeing what these folks are working on! In the words of Billy Savage, RIDE ON!!!
