POOF!

Solid ride from the house last weekend. Climb 70 minutes then hit a steep/rocky DH trail. Find it blocked halfway down, hike out then pin the dirt road back to the house. Full speed laying it out through a gravel hairpin, drifting drifting, WRX appears in the dust—aimed right at me. Spot a pile of duff under the guardrail, go wide, edge into the bank and—poof!—set up for the next turn. Road riding, Enduro style.

  

The other good part. Worth a hike and repeat.

HORRIBLE AWESOMENESS

Today I rolled the Tricross to the DMV then pinned it up Boulder Canyon, Four Mile Canyon, Poor Man and Sunshine Canyon to home. I’d rather rip singletrack, but there’s something horribly awesome about pedaling up a mountain as hard as you can.

GETTING OUT

Dumbbells and indoor trainers have their place, but there’s no substitute for riding outside. Even if it’s dark and cold.

Especially if it’s dark and cold.

ROAD DESCENDING: REMEMBERING WHAT FAST IS

Just finished a two-hour road ride with my neighbor Larry. I am a mountain biker for a reason, but freeroading is rad.
