I’ve not quite bounced back from vacation travel. This last week, my workouts have been a little more than lack-luster… I’ve still been dreaming about no alarm clock, warm Caribbean water and relaxing at the pool after diving. The workouts got cut short or didn’t quite hit the heart rate thresholds that I’ve targeted. But… Read More A good day on the bike.
I had done a pretty good job of lining up back to back Epics… the Palm Springs and then the next weekend, San Diego MTB Association’s Archipelago Ride. Brilliant! The “Arch” ride is billed as 50 miles, point to point, connecting SD’s major mountain bike trails, 5,000 ft of climbing and (most importantly) ending at… Read More San Diego’s Archipelago Ride
I wanted to title this post: “Palm Spring Epic = Epic Fail”… but that really wouldn’t be fair to the trail. Crack of dawn, 5 of us headed up for the ride; 2 of the guys were new to me, 3 of us had done the route plenty of times before. The ride is billed… Read More Palm Springs Epic

As much as the black/difficult trails were calling to me from Trail Forks, I decided… Read More Adventures in Paradise – My first time riding in Hawaii
I’ve been lucky that almost everywhere that I’ve wanted to ride I’ve either been able to drive to or the adventure is short and I’ve rented. Not this time. We’re starting to spend more and more time back in Hawaii and have always missed our bikes when we’re in the islands. I decided to skinny… Read More Have bike, will travel. My first time flying with a mountain bike.
Yipee!!! The rains have stopped (for now) and Day Light Savings is done! This means super green trails and an extra hour to ride. Group rides with the guys after work will start soon enough. And this means hanging out with my favorite friends on and off the trail. My favorite trails are a little… Read More Trails: Dry(er), Daylight: Longer!
