BIKE GOD Theatre

The Theatre is closed this week due to heavy rain.

After showing up on time, Air Mapster waits for the others to arrive. Growing bored of standing around for what seems like an eternity, he decides to play with the camera's timer and document the excruciatingly long wait. Zippy MacPhee finally makes an appearance as the second photo is snapped, with Byondo not far behind.
The skies are quite breathtaking today. The day has just begun, and the BIKE GODS have already climbed well above the serene valley below.
Byondo and Zippy MacPhee charge up the hill, eager to take in the spectacular view that lies ahead.
And in just a flash, they round the corner to continue going up, up, up!
The BIKE GODS watch with pure scorn and disdain as the wimpy motorcycle rider comes up the trail, but not even under his own power.
Rounding the corner, the BIKE GODS spy a peculiar structure up ahead. What could it be? A giant golf ball on a tee? Some sort of alien contraption left here millions of years ago? Further investigation is needed, so they press on with great urgency.
Zippy MacPhee leads the way up to the mysterious white orb at the top of the mountain.

The BIKE GODS arrive at the top of the mountain to find that the weather is sunny and clear. Not a single drop of rain can be detected by this Doppler RADAR station. The great orb is resting today, as it knows that next week will be its busiest in years.
This magnificent panoramic view is what allows KSOX to see all the rain in the southland. Byondo sits and absorbs RADAR pulses as he simultaneously shuns the feeble motorcycle rider and enjoys the staggering beauty of the valleys below.
How do they power such a station, all the way up here in the middle of nowhere? It's too far to run power lines. Instead, this chamber gathers the trash of passers-by and converts it into fuel for the all-seeing, all-knowing eye.

Air Mapster follows some singletrack to a sheer 10-foot drop. Just to show off his amazing skills, he stops in the middle of the descent and jumps off the bike to take a few pictures as it balances perfectly. Incredible!
