Tonight I went to see the movie, “The Theory of Everything“.  If you don’t know what it’s about, it’s the life story of Stephen Hawking. Seeing this tonight reminded me of a thought I had this weekend while riding mountain bikes in Loma.  It was my first time on the mountain bike since October?  Long enough that I don’t remember […]

Best, Worst, and Biggest of 2014

Best, Worst, and Biggest of 2014

For a little light humor I wanted to share what I found to be my Best, Worst, Biggest and Weirdest moments of 2014.   Best Bike I rode:  Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt Discovery:  3M Scotch Brand Super 77.  We’ve all seen riders abandon the Tour.  When they do someone “Peels” their number off.  Note, they don’t unpin the number.  Have you […]

Mt. Sopris, 12,965'

Shenanigans of Late

It’s been a while since I posted anything so here is a photo journal of the last few months.  I’ve been fishing in Maine, cycling in Breckenridge, CO and on the Monarch Crest, which is part of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT), and climbed my first Colorado 14er. This year was my 15th year in a row going to The […]

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? Maybe the shirt […]

Summer is here!

Summer is here!

I thought I’d write a little post about what has gone on this Spring/Sumer and get everyone up to date on my going ons.  The winter was long and the riding started later this year.  After being sick three times and not doing much exercise at all thing are on the up and up.  At this time the riding is […]

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 […]

Getting into the Backcountry

Getting into the Backcountry

On this years Fourth of July I went for a bike ride with my co-workers to Dexter Park.  So far in Colorado this is the my number one place to ride.  It’s everything I expected when I read Mountain Flyer Magazine all those times sitting in Seattle dreaming of actually being there.  The four of us didn’t see a single […]

One of the many gullies we traversed while riding Sidewinder.

High Desert Fun

This was one of the large gullies/washes during my 40 miles out and bike mountain bike ride this past Sunday on the Sidewinder Trail.  Sidewinder is located near Austin, CO and the Black Canyon.  The riding was amazing but quite technical.  Having raced the night before I was pretty tired by the end, more mentally than physically but the effects […]

View of the Holy Cross Wilderness from Abrams Trail.

Holy Cross Wilderness

On Monday I went to Eagle Colorado and did some mountain biking.  The terrain was a lot like that of the Roaring Fork Valley but we still had a blast.  On the first climb up the Abrams Trail we had some great views of the west side of the Holy Cross Wilderness.  I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of […]
