It seems like every time I find the two hours of spare time I need to write one of these little stories, I mention how it’s been so long since the last one, how I’ll try and do better, how I blah, blah, blahhhh…. Well, the truth is, I DO have a hard time finding […]
So Long, Mr Dingman
It’s the end of an era. While our opportunities to ride together seemed to become fewer and farther between over the last year or so, I always knew the days I rode with Shawn would be just a little more fun than most others. But, alas, all things do in fact come to an end. […]
Memory Lane Is Steep!
Sometimes I take too many pictures while I’m riding. Okay, pretty much every time. But, this go around was exceptional for the number of photos taken. And, while none of them are really all that special, the ride was spectacular! Therefore, I’ve pared down the number of blurry, cell phone pics from 75 to 19 […]
Up In Smoke
Not a very original title. I know. Quite appropriate though, considering it perfectly describes my ride last Saturday. I started out from our family’s camp site at Lake Siskiyou and headed up along the west fork of the Sacramento River, and what I hoped was out of the smoke. While the campground was […]
I’m not gonna lie. I’ve wanted to post blogs, write about adventures, share stuff. The truth is, I haven’t really felt like I’ve done anything on a bike in such a long while that would warrant the amount of time it takes me to put an entry together. I’m not the quickest at this sort of […]
Forgotten…But, Not Gone?
Wow. I’ve tried starting this entry probably 5 or 6 different ways, but none of them were working for me. I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve written anything. I know it’s been long enough for me to have forgotten my password to the team blog. Ugh. With that outta the way, I’m just […]
Looking Back. Looking Forward
Wow. It’s been so long since I’ve done one of these, I wonder if I remember how to do this? We’ll all find out soon enough I guess! That’s right. Much to your possible chagrin, I’m still around! While there’s plenty of negative every year that nobody wants to go back and revisit, there’s, […]
I promise, after this report, I will do my very best to avoid the topic of the Gravel Epic race. It’s finally come and gone so this should be my last time writing about it for awhile. And, not a moment too soon in my opinion! I’m tired of thinking about it. Last week […]
Well, here we are at the end of Summer. Seeing as how I’m about 1000 miles behind pace to hit my year’s goal of 6500 miles, I guess I should be satisfied with my other goal. And, I am! My favorite goal this year was to HAVE FUN riding. After last year’s drive to do […]
Sore Knees And Big Trees
The Gravel Epic is only 3 weeks away and with that in mind I dove into last week intent on burying myself in cycling pain for the next 2. Tuesday got things started in the right direction when Jared and I decided to try to escape the smoke by heading out to Lost Creek Lake […]
Doin’ It Right (Almost)!
It looks like the smoke has finally made it’s way to the Valley. So far it hasn’t been bad, but this morning I was riding the motorbike down I-5 to work and thought it was raining. I wasn’t getting wet though, and my highly perceptive mind finally realized (after about 10 minutes) that it was […]
Like Old Times
I promise I was trying to be more consistent. Truth. But, when I was forced to wait nearly 2 weeks for my new internet service, I had to bail on last week’s report. I’ll try and make up for it today. I only had the chance to ride twice last week, but both […]
