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?
Riding the Doctor Park trail in Colorado. 25 miles of climbing, descending, rocky, and flowy trails – all during a forest fire.
I was headed to Bentonville, Arkansas when a storm re-routed me to Salida, Colorado. I adjusted the schedule and made the drive.
A long ride from the top of Mount Umunhum, all the way to the bottom, and home again.
A hot Summer requires occasional respites. We drove to Groveland, CA where we sampled the offerings at Exchequer Bike Park on Lake McClure. It was a fun and interesting day that was filled with some great downhills and great people.
In a feature that departs from mountain biking just a bit, I have decided to share my 2018 backpacking trip to Graveyard Lakes in the Sierra Nevada.
My neighbor recently got a new bike from his Brother-in-law. It’s a first-generation Yeti, and it’s awesome. He has been dying to get it out on the trails near our house, so I finally arranged the time and we got the kids together and headed out.
It’s an interesting time. With all that is happening in the world, we need to be careful and act wisely when it comes to how much time we spend with others outdoors.
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.
Just a short and sweet update on the fallen tree situation on the trails near U.C. Santa Cruz. It looks like the entire trail has been opened up and is safe to ride again.
