    I love to see the digging dirt posts. A rainy weekend at Tamarancho takes a long time to fix. I can't believe so many ride up there when it rains. Get out and do some trail work!

    Painting my daughters bedroom. I would rather get all the inside projects done while it is cold-wet-rainy than in the spring and summer when I can ride!

    Ran a bunch of errands and then a funny thing happened. After hitting Scotts Valley Feed, we were on our way to a winery in Felton and were driving down Mt Hermon.

    The wife asks "have you been to Scotts Valley CycleSport?"
    Me - "Uh, not lately, do you want to go?"
    Her - "Oh, let's go check out if they have a sale."

    That turned into about 4 hours of running around town and five bike stores. A stop at SC Mtn Brewery was required as well. Apparently we are down to two finalists --

    2012 Specialized Safire Comp
    2013 Santa Cruz Juliana

    Due to sales, they are both about the same price. The Safire was described as "comfortable, but more like a Prius." The Juliana was "the sports car".

    This should be amusing to see where this ends up.

    Santa shopping is done so today was digging on the pump track (all the turns are dug out now) and squeezed in a road ride, rest of the weekend will be spent cooking, building up the new fixed gear roadie, updating Minecraft for WheelsJr, and maybe a trainer ride. Nice to chill at home for a change.

    True. No news. But I may poach his trails tomorrow or Kennedy if it is decent enough (and I wake up early enough) in the morning. I'm lazy these days.

    Santa is coming early today..he (well, she) is taking me to get a juicer (hopefully it won't end up on craigslist in week ) and then time to head down to the basement to try a new cycling video. I've gotten bored of the Carmichael Training System videos (other riders on trainers) so Santa got me a 'Tour Wild California' video so I can at least enjoy some of the beauty of our state while suffering. Dang hard to get on the trainer, but I always feel better about myself afterward and I notice the difference on the long rides (plus this S.O.B. needs to drop ~15lbs).

    So what are you doing this rainy weekend?-trainer2.jpg

    ^^^Ha, funny considering we posted at the same time...and for the record, there is always some seepage in my basement, but the massive heat I generate while I am on the trainer will surely evaporate all unwanted H2O.

    edit: I purposely took the pick to avoid the water that is just to the left of the trainer.
    I no longer deserve a signature.

    Yesterday, did a little ride in the rain with Zen Turtle



    Was pouring rain in Los Gatos at 6am, when we started..

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    El Sereno was a good climb in the rain. Over to Bohlman and down McGill to the reservoir

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    The coldest part of the ride was dropping down Bear Creek Rd to Boulder Creek - torrential rain and very cold. We stopped in at Rainbow's End coffee shop to warm up. Down to Felton and ZT took me on a tour of Roaring Camp Railroads trails - awesome! We went on a search for the crowdsourced xmas tree

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    This place is awesome fun on CX! We were following one of shredchic's tracks but decided to cut it short and find a way to the road.. this bridge wasn't quite rideable

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    ZT raised the idea of a detour to the Summit Store for Gizdich pie and so pie gravity pulled us up the mountain. No rain on Zayante which made it bearable!

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    I don't usually like to start a ride if it's already raining but when I do, it always seems to be with Zen Turtle

    well the short story is we got wet!
    but we did get just under two hours in before we all got fully saturated!
    good to ride with you Mike.
    back home warm and dry watching the rain falling in anticipation of the 9'er Seahawks game.

    Holy Cra*
    Got home an hour ago. Record rainfall for Palo Alto, San Jose...coming down the wind was sideways. Got to my house (85/Camden) and the street was flooded. Since I was soaked, I spend 45 mins. cleaning out storm gutters....didn't help much. Rain slowed and the water went down, but it was scary. After Kennedy, I climbed Santa Maria Road to Belgatos (short cut for me) and then went down Belgatos. Halfway down it started. Couldn't even see. Had to lock em up and stop the bike. Honestly couldn't see the trail it was raining that hard. Closed my eyes as the bike came to a stop. Surreal.
    For those in the know, it was a pee yourself to keep the knees warm kind of ride..... Glad I made it home. 20 min. shower fixed all problems.
    Glad I went out, but If I'd stayed home 20 mins. longer, I'd have never left...

    Cheers!

    Just got back from wandering around town, dinner, wine tasting, and some shopping. Somehow a Spec. Safire Comp ended up under the tree. Supposedly this means spousal nagging to ride more. I guess I could have other things to complain about.

    She's already signed off on a road trip to Oak Ridge/Waldo Lake in the coming year.

    Got called into work this afternoon. Tree with wires down on Panoramic Highway past 4 Corners. Dropped into Fairfax on Fairfax-Bolinas Road and checked out Corte Madera Creek (17') - 19' is flood stage and Sleepy Hollow.

    Spent weekend installing new front and rear derailleurs and shifters. Guess I will have to wait a little longer to try them out.

    I went for a quick ride today at 3pm just after the rains stopped. Blue skies mixed with rain clouds and river bed riding among many small waterfalls. So what are you doing this rainy weekend?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1356329361.103448.jpg

    Got some shots of the rain's effects.
    Many here should recognize this first shot.

    These are taken just a few hundred feet north. Impromptu waterfalls.

    I am hoping to get out before 9:00AM Monday morning to assess the damage up in the Sierra Azul/Kennedy trails area. Should be some fun downed trees and rockpile landslides to contend with.

    I'll probably do a bit of this as well today as well. Fighting the urge to go ride some single track, but I know it is too wet / bad for the trails. Maybe Demo will be dry enough next weekend.

    Rode some local trails that hold up well in rain.

    Nobody's hunting mushrooms?! There must be some fat chanterelles and oysters out there by now. We're moving back up there next month, and I just bought the g/f two ID books (Aurora's). Can't wait!

    Nature is not a sidewalk (I'm looking at you, MidPen).

    I'm trying to find a good source of chanterelles. So far anyone who knows is tight lipped. It is easier to find fight clib worth trails than it is mushroom sources.

    Riding Ft. Ord

    You guys still haven't figured out Ft. Ord? Four plus hours of great riding Christmas morning. And I picked out my tree, which needed no decorations.

    Crazy I was watching my son play with his toy train, made me think about my old slot cars for some reason.... Google'd slot cars, can't believe the advancements. Multiple cars per lane, passing lanes, pit lanes, pace cars, controlled breaking, fuel consumption, etc.... They've come a long way, I'll have to wait until my boys are little older.

    haven't ridden in quite a while now, have been busy at work trying to get things buttoned down for year end. was going to take my son to sugarbowl yesterday for the day, but i got scared away by the storm. it looked very nasty by mid-afternoon so i'm glad i stayed home. went with him to see djaingo instead.

    It's cool. brother and sister have been playing tons and now their friends are over. Music to my ears when they are happy for hours with real toys and board games.

    Yup, agree with that, Brett. Tried it some years ago in a rented Ferrarri. Some success but the fails were much more memorable.
