    We are due for a "check-in" in Salida soon and the Distillery and a visit to see you Mr. Woods is on the agenda. Things are looking great and I'm sure the folks in Salida can't wait for the opening party.

    Started off this past week cheering on my nephew and his rivals from Salida HS at the first NICA Colorado mtn bike race of the season! Great racing and a ton of kids!



    Got some work done at the distillery, no booze to sell yet but we have hats and t-shirts!



    Some new art!



    And some oak! So while I'm still not open I am ready when my license finally gets approved!



    It rained all day Wednesday and Thursday was pretty much a cyclists powder day wtih super tacky and fast trails! No pictures but take my word it was awesome!

    Friday evening was the first, hopefully annual, chainless bike race down the spirals on S-mtn, as part of the first annual Salida Bike Fest.







    Then it was my turn! On this corner as I slipped into the lead of my heat, traveling at 31.8 mph (according to my garmin) my rear wheel broke loose and I departed the company of my bike. I landed in the ditch on a pile of rocks, followed by the guy I just passed and the fellow behind him. Luckily I cushioned their landing...and #49 was unscathed...



    I am sure once the broken rib and all the raspberries that I have from head to toe heal I will get some really good fall riding in...

    Cheers,
    P.T.
    Could it be that the mystery has been hanging out hiding in a whiskey shot?

    A bit of (not so fresh) new meat... #54

    Not a prolific photographer like PTW but here's the first photo I've posted of my 2&1/2 yr old or so #54. Cheers!

    McClungs are still the nicest bikes out there, to me.

    I got this bike as a gift without any real fit process. Though a beautiful bike, the best part is that it really, REALLY fits. By far the most comfortable bike I have ever had. Set up a bit up-right but with tight geometry, it's fantastic on the twisties and is just a joy

    Races look like fun, heal fast! Broken/cracked ribs are not fun!

    Hats and shirts look nice, but have you thought of making the two O's MTB wheels? Dunno if it would look better, just a thought. Like the mustache on the logo.

    As of this week the distillery is fully permitted, we have grain showing up next week and should be off to the races!
    If you get to Salida stop by and say hi, maybe we can get a ride!

    The last month has been a wild ride but as I settle into a routine I thought I might throw a little MTBR update out. First the weather up until last weekend has been stellar for riding so I have gotten out a bit...

    Thanksgiving day was sweet although I found myself as the lantern rouge in a group of pretty tough kids.



    Taf schooled me riding a line I always walk...



    For the most part though I am at the distillery making booze...









    Cheers and Happy Holidays,
    P.T.

    Very nice! Great that you guys have such a lively bike scene there and that you are now making booze. Guess I'll have to plan on a stop next time I do the TDR.

    Even though McClung has left the thread I too enjoy the updates on the spirits. If I ever make it out there..

    Happy Holiday

    I have been spending a lot of hours making whiskey of late. Yet I have been able to get out a bit and thought I would post a few photos. The riding has been excellent here all winter and looks to be that way for a while yet, if you get to Salida stop by the distillery and say hi!

    Whiskey flask is dry right now if we are in the area this spring / summer would love to top it off and get out for some Salida single track.
