Trip to Colorado

I don't travel often anymore but each fall i feel a draw to see the changing colors of the aspens and visit the place i lived for the entirety of my adult life until about 6  years ago. The family of friends there has proved hard to beat and i've never felt more welcome and... Continue Reading →

Foresthill Dirt roads

We got a bunch of nice dirt roads around here, and they're all pretty nice for riding the cross bike. Especially with some 40mm tires. Other than a quick dip in a bigass puddle, we had a great ride yesterday covering 52 miles and 5600ft elevation, with maybe 1/4 of those miles on pavement.  A... Continue Reading →

Global Fatbike Day, Reno style

I joined the Nevada Fatbike group's ride today to celebrate GLOBAL fatbike day outside Reno on some trails around Dry Pond and Whites Creek. About 15 or so showed up on a balmy 55-degree mostly sunny day, most of us overdressed...at least I was. I think snow when I fatbike so dress appropriately. But today... Continue Reading →

He calls it the Tour de Trash because the middle portion of the ride, which follows the train tracks and parallel frontage roads, passes by some "interesting" houses and lots of scattered trash from hobo...

Just some ride shots

Some photos of riding in Truckee and Auburn with my 'real' camera (not the iphone).  The extended fall for Auburn is nice, leaves just starting to change! Tahoe got some snow last week but...it's gone except for the highest elevations. Trails are so damn nice right now up there.

Bontrager Chupacabra 29+ tires

More to come with further riding and testing but I just received a pair of the newest 29+ tire and they look like the best option out there, in my honest opinion.  I reviewed a few other Bontrager tires earlier this year. The Chupacabra's are in the same vein as their other TLR (tubeless ready)... Continue Reading →

A short visit to Ned

Last Saturday my significant other out of the blue suggested we pack up and drive to our old town in Colorado...sure, why not? It was a short but sweet trip to where we moved from 2 years ago, Nederland, Colorado.  Fall had fallen for the most part, but the things we missed were all still... Continue Reading →
