Better to stick ones arm than to stick ones tire!

Better to be pricked out biking than not pricked at all sitting in my office chair.

Sometimes you stick it to the trail… Sometimes it sticks you…

Watch out for that… Cactus?!? ♪♫♪

Drop some ink on the wound; keep falling on cacti-pulling out needles-and dropping ink on the wounds; eventually end up with a really sweet sleeve (or sleeves); never pay retail for tats again.

Posted by Elizabeth Curran - 06/14/2012 01:43 PM

What a prick!

Posted by Amanda Erickson - 06/14/2012 01:47 PM

Maah Daah Hey – is worth a prick along the way!

Posted by Roxanne - 06/14/2012 02:16 PM

I told you that cactus was a little prickly today!

Posted by SB Cee - 06/14/2012 02:32 PM

“See? This is really painful. AaahOWWW! Now, you try it. Wait, where are you going?”

Posted by Micah Stiegler - 06/14/2012 03:01 PM

“That guy at Dakota Cyclery didn’t say anything about no damn cactus!” “Well, it IS called the BADlands, bro…”

Posted by Lynda Mattera - 06/14/2012 03:03 PM

OOHH! The Point is…if you got the right gear nothing stops your ride!

Posted by Micah Stiegler - 06/14/2012 03:09 PM

“Scars are souvenirs for life… I guess that’s fitting, seeing as ‘Maah Daah Hey’ means ‘will be around for a long time’ in the Mandan language…”

Posted by Anne - 06/14/2012 03:38 PM

Maybe now you men will understand when us women complain about a little prick.

Posted by nathan goff - 06/15/2012 06:01 AM

The Doc. said if I hit a cactus light them on fire before I pull them out to relieve stress. Anyone have a lighter.
