View Full Version : How Mountainy?

I've got a Giant Cypress 6061 w/ 24\" wheels. It's no road bike but definetly isn't a \"mountain\" bike. Right in between. I mean I can make it across fields and stuff like that. Front but no rear suspension. Fairly thick tires but not nubby like a mountain bike. I was just wonderin (from those of you that have been there before) weather or not the trails are pretty harsh or milder. I'm gonna bring the giant anyways for trans. but I was just wonderin'

You'll definitely be FINE...the most you'll have to offroad would be some flat grass if any...be prepared for The Hill though...it's paved but long.

A hill in Kansas??? Surely you jest!
Just kidding, I walked that hill at least 20 times in '07. Kept missing the \"No Waka\" bus :(
Not just a hill. For the purposes of this board, it is THE Hill. (note the capitalization) :D
It seems every year we have a Waka newb in our group who on Thursday will say \"I don't know what y'all are talking about - this hill isn't that bad\". Then on Sunday we'll hear \"I now know what you mean when you say \"The Hill\"\"
It's not that it's un-possible to traverse, it's the certainty of knowing that every trip into the festy grounds involves dealing with it twice.
The Hill commands respect. Ask anyone on a bike or longboard that ate asphalt.

Whenever we took our bike from the campsite, we just locked them up at the top of THE HILL by the hy-vee tent and then walk THE HILL. I was not about to eat asphalt going down that thing, and even if you bomb it, you still are only half-way up and have to battle the rest of the way.

I had my little sister's BMX one year and as long as you get enough speed, you can make it up both sides of THE hill. It's a matter of gusto.
As far as trails are concerned, I can't remember any that I couldn't handle on the BMX. However, I didn't venture to the trails around the lake.
