A look back at one of the most difficult years any of us have had to endure. What made it special and what made it great?
My Brother Pete and I have been riding together for a long time. It was a great break to be able to ride mountain with Pete. Rancho Canada Del Oro was the perfect spot!
One of the major downhill rides from my trip to Ashland, Oregon in October, 2019. Ashland Outdoor Adventures took us to the top and dropped us off for the 12 mile trip back into town.
It’s been almost 2 weeks since my ride in Los Gatos, and three weeks since the Shelter In Place order went into effect here in California. The Los Gatos Ride was WAAAY too crowded for my taste, and I’m going nuts not being able to ride.
On a rare sunny day in early March, I took a few hours to run out to my local trailhead and shake things up just a little bit. I reversed the direction of my typical ride and got humbled by climbing up my “downhill” trail.
In September of 2018, I took a 3-week road trip around the western states with my camera and my mountain bike. While on that trip, I randomly drove through the Rocky Mountains and, like many before me, fell in love with Colorado. On the advice of a friend, and while looking for a place to ride for the day, I stopped in Winter Park to ride my first ever bike park.
I won’t lie – it’s been a rough week. We have experienced several family tragedies, and my time is tight. (Thank you all for the well wishes, I really to appreciate all the positive feelings!) It’s been tough to get out on the bike.
It’s been an interesting holiday season to say the least! We had a great time during the holidays, but one ride in particular between Christmas and New Year’s Eve was rough. Watch the video to learn more!
The Los Gatos Turkey Day Ride – 2019 It is a Thanksgiving tradition. On Thursday, I participated in the annual Los Gatos Turkey Day Ride. This year was my twenty-third (with no breaks) and it was a cold one. We got our first big storm of the year the day Read more…
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.
