    MTBNate Memorial White Mesa Ride

    OK, he's not dead but rumor has it Nate is moving to Germany in a couple weeks, so I'm claiming poetic license for the 'memorial' thing. How about a farewell White Mesa Ride this Saturday at 10:00? Still have your bike or did you trade it for one of those folding things you can take on a train?

    Sure, I need to get in all the NM vistas I can before heading over to southern Germany where I am sure my eyes will hurt for months from all the GREEN.

    I'll coordinate with Ray for ride out to WM - since my truck is somewhere in the mid-Atlantic at the moment.

    Hoping to be hitting this shite come summer since I'll be within a hop-skip-&-a-jump from the Alps..

    Hell, I'll even bring a (almost full) bottle of Patron in case some Bando's show up - I can't ship it overseas, so it needs to be appreciated properly.

    Where you gonna be in Germany? Sounds like either Bayern or Baden. There's some great riding there, especially near Allgaeu.

    A bit further north. I'm used to thinking in southwestern US terms of distance.

    High desert cycles on paseo usually has half a dozen or so empty boxes sitting out behind their shop. I'm sure they would give them to you.

    Arrived Deutschland Mon morn - had a few beers but the weather (aptly named wetter in German) has been cloudy with lots of rain. That's ok since I won't see my bikes until sometime at the end of May.

    First beer in Germany- graciously supplied by my landlady:


    Hefeweizen at a Biergarten:


    Looked at a country rental villa that's within my housing budget. As you can see it's a lot like New Mexico here, with the exception of the rain, greenery, meadows, flowers, gray skies, and more greenery.

    Peeps who've driven in Germany will appreciate this one:



    Things would be a lot better if my bikes would get here and the freekin rain would stop . We did manage to get a ride in on the one (1) sunny Saturday we've had:

    Saturday Ride Passion... or maybe "Beer" passion would be a better descriptor?

    You would think that many pictures of beer would get old... yet they don't. Keep them coming... and the Alps too when you get there.

    Ah man, I miss Stuttgart! That's a great city. Definitely hit up the Mercedes museum when you have a chance. Tubingen is a nice college town to go check out too.
