    Variety is the spice of life

    I left Silicon Valley last year, sick and tired of singletrack as smoot as a baby's butt. Tired of having to spend almost an hour in the car to find a challenging trail.

    Now after months of wrestling rocks and roots in Trondheim, not to speak of months of snow, it felt good to hook up with good cycling buddies Saturday for a few hour's play in what used to be my local playpen.

    Here's climbing up Table Mountain trail.


    Up on the ridges. No Pacific Ocean view, too early for the poppies, but wearing shorts and short sleeves at 2,500 feet altitude made up for it. The local boys were covered in a couple of additional layers.


    Then we ducked back into the forest, railing super fast singletrack with perfectly designed twists and turns. Felt so good.

    If you don't like climbing, then my rides are three times more fun than yours.

    Good job!

    Man, Biking Viking, have I been gone that long?? I guess the last time I was here the forums looked a lot different, and I registered under Maverick back then. I think we rode Saratoga Gap, Long ridge a few times together, or at least talked about it. When did you move? And where'd ya end up? I'm still in sillycon valley, but my bike got bike-knapped a couple months back so I haven't done any riding yet this season. I need to save some dough for a new rig... and given I've just dumped a totally insane about of cash on an engagement ring, it might be next season before I get a new bike all set up.

    Love the Table Mtn shot. Still one of my favorite climbs. That is until it hits Charcoal Rd. Ugh...
