    Riding through the Presidio one rainy day, I was booking through a trail and ended up on a pretty steep single track. I kept going and my tired got caught in a groove and I wiped out big time. Fractured my tailbone as well since I landed on a rock. I was so pissed, that I took my bike and threw it down the rest of the trail pretty. I bent the wheels and rear derailleur. So there I was with a fractured tailbone, mud all over with a busted bike. I think I'm staying off the trails this weekend.

    Most parts of Ft. Ord should be fine. Just stay away from Station One Rd, upper goat, and a few other spots.

    Planning on spinning up Tam on the SS. Railroad grade is always fine. Headlands will be fine too. If not then a road spin in between cells.

    Here's some crazy talk. I saw the long horrible forecast (which is turning into a lot of sunshine for next week) and figured I'd start a 7 day fast. Nothing but veggie drinks, water, and tea for 7 days. I hear the first three days suck but everything mellows out after...we'll see. I am on day one though yesterday ate nothing but raw veggies and fruit. With that, will be starving this weekend for both food and riding. Have fun out there...and have fun realizing the drive train is shot from a long summer of dirty miles. (Aside from you SSers that is)
    I'm not sure how this works.

    Stage/Quarry

    Thinking of riding Stagecoach and Quarry this weekend. Seems like stage. Would be fine if you just roll down and ride up. Thinking Quarry would drain well also. If not I might just do repeats on Stagecoach.
    I no longer deserve a signature.

    Yeah, I think it's going to be bad out there. Everything is past the saturation point, we might start getting reports of mud slides when the 3rd front moves through on Sunday.

    Might be a little slick. I live a couple miles from the entrance and I got 3.3" of rain today!
    But....A buddy and I are considering running down to Fort Ord (on the SS's) and poke around there for a few hours. I'm an eighth & giggling kinda a guy but with all the recent closures we will be heading over to Creekside.....

    Probably favorite Murphys, backroads loop. Put on the file tread. More like a cross ride due to unimproved road which should be muddy, no traffic and good scenery along with my favorite dog protecting his yard. I just hope he is inside his yard or it = instant sprint. He usually falls for the sprint right, juke left at the last moment and he can't quite make the adjustment. I know he is laughing behind the bark. Loop = Dogtown Road, Santa Dominga, Sheep Ranch, French Gulch, Highway 4. DW

    Got some steep streets around where I live. Rode out there Saturday. Whenever I saw a hill, I turned down the street and started climbing. Saw some interesting things. For example, I didn't realized there was a water treatment plant nearby. Embarrassing! I guess I need to get out more often.

    This, minus the Headlands. Me n BSSparky gonna start at W. Blythedale ~11am, probably just up and back down on SS bikes (32x20 for me, dude who asked). My first ride since injuring my hand a few weeks ago, so I'm not waiting for sun.

    FYI, Sunday looks much worse than Saturday from what I can tell. Smoke 'em while you got 'em.

    i'm gonna try and do some trail work as soon as the rain lets up, some 13 year old kids asked me to fix a landing and maybe i'll get up on mile and do some work on that trail. i think my injury is cured enough to get back on the bike. it's a good time to build and fix trails and jumps...ralph
    i need to ride more. building jumps takes to much time...my other hobby is kicking the crap outta my home built mook jong.

    Pivot Firebird. Took my insurance check, some future Christmas money, and a bit of my own.

    I loved the Mojo HD, but it's a bit too much and not exactly the specs I wanted. FB gives me DW-link, with pretty much the exact specs I wanted such as geo, travel, and drivetrain. I got to demo one and couldn't find anything wrong with it. Unfortunately this wasn't in the area so I don't know for sure, but hopefully it will climb well enough.

    There's some new Pivot DW was testing out. Carbon FB makes sense to me. I would hold out for that if interested. Personally I wouldn't take the price increase of carbon.

    Fort Ord was nice this morning. A little wetter than I like but definitely worth it if you can get out this afternoon.

    We'll have to see. The Carbon Mach 5.7 is FUGLY. All my wheels are also 135 rear, so that would make a difference for me as well. The 2011 might be the best bet for me.

    Yeah 5.7 would have been my other option but I didn't like the looks either. Although I didn't like the look of the linkage of the FB at first, I realized that's superficial to the actual riding.

    Got two hours out at the Fort and yes, it was a wet ride but trails were in really good shape. Some standing water but packed everything else!
    Ran into three or four guys from Scott's Valley getting some Too!!!! Followed their tracks all the way to the radio tower/rock lookout down 50 but at the bottom it looks like they took the pavement either way cause 49/50 junction had no tracks on it!

    No rain and as I was doubling back, the sun popped a little bit. The feds closed/marked a bunch of the old twisties under the oaks but really, it was still a good ride connecting the main BLM trails over to ridge and down 50. Got 59 Blair Witch on the way back and out 69 to the access road that leads you back to inter garrison Rd.

    Most of you know I loathe Kennedy, but riding with my good ol' pal, Nelson34, made it all bettah. We talked about decapitation videos, angry wives, hot Los Gatos women in yoga pants, etc. My Garmin was going in and out, and said I averaged 2.9 MPH up to the tree. Ef you, Garmin... you a LIE!

    The fatbike can handle it. The rider, however, I am not sure of yet.

    I'm gonna puss out. Raining buckets is not a cool ride, and I burned my legs up doing sprint intervals today. I'm still sore. Running sucks, but it's fast and hard.

    Wunderground says 100% chance of rain until 4PM. Yahoo says heavy rain until 3PM.

    I bought a Kurt Kinetic Rock'n'Roll that I'm gonna set up, working on my roadie swing sounds like a cool thing to do.
