My bike got very stuck in some mud.  Can't believe I didn't go over the bars.

Bears, Singletrack, and Pavement

A while back I wrote this on Facebook, “Every year I say I’m going to ride less and do more hiking, fishing or trail running, anything but riding.” So can someone explain why two out of the last three weeks I have ridden over 200 miles, climbed 25,000+, and been in the saddle more than 20 hours?

Schofield Pass

Schofield Pass

This past Monday I decided to ride Schofield Pass despite the weather forecast saying there was a 70% chance of rain, but not just rain but at times heavy rains.  Our route was to take us through a river valley which was probably not the smartest route as for weeks we have been having flood warners almost daily. We got […]

Delays, Flats and Misinformation

So just this past weekend a friend invited a bunch of us to go mountain biking on Orcas Island, and being that I have never been in the 8 years I’ve lived here I figured now was the time to go.  It turned out only myself and Alex the ring leader in this adventure wanted to go.  The reason for […]
