    I am neon green with jealousy. Ok, that VW van in the 4th pic def looks like a love-boat on wheels. About that first pic...damn sexy.
    My bed comforts my body. Sleep comforts my mind. The trail comforts my soul. And without a soul, what is a body anyway?

    Moderators!

    For the love of God, delete that 2nd picture!

    Really dig the thru axle on the BS fork. Makes a bunch of sense.

    A double cab...even better. Sweet rides out there in California! Thanks for the additional pic Francois. Don't see any of those here in CT. Now...the Element...you can't swing a cat around here without hitting an Element with a Sportworks rack.

    Ok, the ride wasn't all posing with big wheels and fancy VWs. Here's some pics from previous rides.

    We woo-hoo'd down some trails








    We crossed a hundred log piles


    We squeezed through some trails


    We appreciated the local art


    We rode through meadows







    We passed by the railroad tracks on the way home



    We picked up some burritos and watched the surfers and dolphins play



    After lunch, I called my wife and she brought the kids over to hang out at the beach while I tested the wind patterns. I DO NOT want my kids to grow up. But someday, they will ride the forest with me and they will smile.







    Yes, all in one morning ride. Just three months ago, I was broken and could not stay awake. Today is a good day

    If you ride thes trails, PM me and we'll roll.

    I posted some pics of the trails. Basically it was a ride from UCSC to Grey Whale to Wilder State park. Lunch at the historic farm by the ocean and head back in the most indirect way possible.

    Awesome pictures. The railroad tracks pic reminds me of the train bridge scene from Stand by Me for some reason.

    Those tracks are still used for the Redwoods to the beach tour. There's a bridge part of those tracks where we have to ride on those tracks for a bit. Everytime we cross, some monkey (usually me) yells "TRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Haha. I'd probably do the same thing.

    Neat bikes, but I'd rather have that sweet Vdub truck deal. You need some plastic spinners to make it ghetto-fab.
