Life Behind Bars

I grew up in the 1970s in what is now called Silicon Valley. Cycling (we called it dirt biking back then) was hammered into my very core by all the insane kids on our suburban street. When we arrived around 1975, there was a fairly prolific motocross family living across the street from us. I had never heard of motocross, being only 5 years old, but these new kids looked super rad and I just HAD to be doing what they were doing; riding bikes everywhere and working hard to see who could get to the emergency room first.

Up Overgrown, Down Priest Rock

I have been climbing up Overgrown (AKA Limekiln Trail) pretty much since I started mountain biking (that’s over 30 years, by the way). It is a great, shaded climb on a hot day. Starting at the banks of Lexington Reservoir in Los Gatos, California, it carries you up to some great views of the south San Francisco Bay Area.
