piece de resistance

a good friend of mine, Ian Lockey, tackled some stairs the other day on his Perp. i could preface the subject by saying he’s a paraplegic, but that fact doesn’t really matter. he rumbled from Topping Street to the “no bike” bridge on the shore of the Columbia River in Trail, BC–a good twenty flights of stairs with two 90 degree corners–only stopping to let me get around him in a somewhat futile effort to illustrate the radness of his task.

Ian checks the 8″ cement barrier, three feet in front of his first flight.

Three flights are visible here–there’s three beyond this before the first corner.

First section nailed.


Final flight to the street

The red awning starting in the upper left corner of the photo, down toward the bridge, is Ian’s flight.

Unless, of course, you rode from Topping Street.

thanks for asking me to do this, Ian.
