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.
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.
The start of the year is usually a pretty cold time. It may not be as chilly as Chicago or Vermont, but we reach below freezing temperatures fairly often and it chills our Summer-acclimated bones. That’s why it was a real treat to have a weekend of 68ºf clear skies to get out and enjoy the bike with the family.
