    Hit up Auburn yesterday. Conditions were amazing and so is the new bike setup. I was taking it easy thinking my suspension was still off but soon realized it is dialed. Super stoked!

    Boring on video perhaps but so much fun.
    Meant to grab this one. Forrest Hill?

    Only 6 miles this morning. 20° and a good wind with flurries. Trails were terrible though. The last couple of days were in the 40s and must have thawed a bunch and the trails was rutted up really bad by a skinny tire. Water then pooled in low areas and with the flurries made super slick and hidden ed spot and ended up on my butt a couple of times. Wasn't the best riding experience, but better than work or sitting on the couch.

    Funny you mention ruts caused by a skinny tire. I'm tired of the fatbike lovers whi think that is all they should ride. We in northeast Pa haven't gotten much snow left yet the ruts left by fatbikes are terrible. Makes riding with a 2.4 tire hard.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    Out on the Krampus this evening. 74* here on the SF peninsula today. Should be great riding weather for the next two weeks at least.

    Nice and cool this morning, 30s and windy with snow flurries. The only other vehicle I saw when leaving the state park apparently belonged to a woman who was running.
    Beautiful day, wonderful ride. Seems like every week it's more fun than the last

    After work ride on a record high temp day of 64°! Of course it was more like 55° at 4pm ride time. Most joggers I've ever seen on my loop too (more than one). Tested out my new stem and bar = happy. Dog poo on the tires, so unwashed bike sits in the garage. Dodged a bullet getting back in the Jeep, my mind took a second to process that I saw just as I felt a hornet as I was grabbing the grab-bar. I didn't apply all my grip and swung my hand and him out the door without a sting. Whew!

    1.5 hours after work. Tried out my new dropper. Worked well. Got 4 years out of the old one. I think that's par for that course, but I'm hoping to do better with the new one. Some rain, but trail conditions were great. Passed a trio of women hiking. They stopped and we all shared some big ol smiles and hellos as I passed. I like it when that happens.

    No riding since Sunday. The temps have been dropping all week. It's currently -11c (12f) but windchill is -20c (-4f). This will certainly help freeze the rivers and lakes /ponds. I might attempt a ride


    Big shout out to everyone riding this week!

    Is that -140 in C or F... does it matter.

    Wear a balaclava too 'licious. Be warm out there.

    It's been chill here in MN too this week. I haven't done much riding other than a short commute to work after I park the car. I'll be making more of an effort this weekend, regardless of the cold. I just need to dress for it, which is no problem for a person from MN.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Rode up Elgridge Grade on Mt Tam - then down to Lake Lagunitas. The lake was like glass and a dozen birds were sunning themselves on the log in the lake.

    Did my first proper ride on a road bike today.
    It's fun to be able to cover 100km in 3 hours, especially while the day is still relatively short.

    First mountain bike ride ever today; here's what I learned: shift early, shift often--get off your ass (literally)--don't fight sand.

    And a question: I started whistling when going around blind curves, just in case there was another bike coming the other way. Any other ideas on how to avoid head-ons?

    I have a bear bell velcroed around my bars. Was all I heard at first, now I don't even notice it. I've had riders say "thanks for the bell" when I pass.

    I was doing all my riding on the beach on my fat bike. The guys at the bike shop told me one of the trails was all groomed and even showing dirt. Since my fat bike currently is not sporting an ideal snow tire on the rear and it was WAY too windy to ride on the beach today, I decided to try the trail.
    Just under six miles of tight, twisty tech. 21 degrees. Thankfully, the trees blocked most of the wind. Had a great ride. Only saw one other guy.

    Briefly, on my hybrid. Lots of wrenching going on, before, since I didn't like how the brakes were adjusted, and have been playing with the spoke tension of a new replacement wheel I didn't trust after it made a popping noise as soon as I got on the bike.
    Unfortunately, even spoke tension doesn't equal true. I can see how someone could lose their mind trying to get a wheel perfect on both paper and the truing stand at the same time

    Did I ride today? Yes, yes I did!! First ride this year, and first ride since breaking my wrist about two months ago. 7km of easy gravel forest roads with my wife and two dogs doesn't sound like much, but after being of the bike so long it was bliss.

    The only downer was it made me realise it will still be some time before I'm up to "proper" riding again.

    Nice!
    Thanks for pointing that out I missed it on the first go around. I used to go out to Yuma AZ jet skiing on the Colorado River. They were everywhere out there. And surprisingly can run on water. Cruising on glassy water we would come upon flock after flock and as we approached they would take off running on top of the water for a good 100' or more then dive under. We weren't harrassing them just observing their amazing talents.

    One fat bike (studs)
    One ss ht (studs)
    one ht (studs)
    one ht (reg tires)
    one fs (reg tires)
    one dc/dh (reg tires)

    We all survived

    That looks like a great ride cyclelicious.

    Late update, I went out last Saturday and Sunday. Waaay overdressed on Saturday or I worked it too hard. When I came back after the ride and took off my outer shell it looked like I had been through the rain forest. I tried to go out on a couple of the lakes I passed along the route, but I didn't want to destroy the cc ski tracks with my big tires. I found a nice spot for some hot tea though. I was surprised that I didn't see anyone else except dog walkers and ice fisherman.

    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Went to scout a local trail today which is the first to dry off. Good news: the first few miles were in great shape. Bad news: I forgot my helmet, but decided to ride anyhow, although it kept me from riding too far. It was kind of a weird feeling but I kept it safe. Warm weather around here means a variety of trails should be drying out within the next week or two.... (fingers crossed)

    Yesterday was melty (pouty face goes here), today it's all out pouring rain...

    I took the VRC for a spin last night. Speeds unimaginable compared to my winter rides. Pavement. No heavy boots. No studs or low pressure fats to add big resistance... I was flyin'!

    Then I stopped for a sec-

    I was shocked when I came burning around a corner and come upon those misplaced flowers. Somebody obviously threw a bunch of seeds up there.

    Check out this pic of them in the foreground with my town below. Looks photo shopped, big time, but it's real.

    Rode 24 miles today. Started in snow. Then lots of mud puddles then hero dirt. I see why people use fat bikes for snow now.
    2.3 and 2.25 tires just don't cut it.

    Yes-didn't think I'd get to!
    Mostly short rides, ~30 miles total on the mtb and 21 on the hybrid, but I managed to do some pedaling every day this week except Sunday. Wheee!

    17 miles today. 1st 14 was normal workout route, then the last 3 was showing my old/new riding bud from CA who rode with me all the cool things on base like my squadron, points of interest, and then we went thru all the planes on Heritage Hill.

    20.4 Miles @ Wilder State Park and Behind UCSC.
    I would call it an Epic ride. New trails for me.

    No, that's total
    They were 17, 5, and I guess the other was actually 11-12, so 33-34 for all three mtb rides put together.
    My quick workouts from home have lots of climbing, but it's only a 6.99 mile loop according to my bike's odometer, so 21 miles for doing that on the days I didn't get to a trail.
    Do need to increase my mileage, since they're all going by really fast...

    Not today. Recovering from the hangover that resulted from yesterday's booze cruise.
    4 of us met at the local brewery for beers. Climbed up a torturous canyon road. Stopped for road beers at the top. Raced down the other side of the canyon and out to a bar for lunch and more beers. Then back into town to the local VFW for whiskey.
    Probably 40 or 50 miles.
    Riding today wasn't happening. I hung on the couch and watched the Daytona 500.
    Trek Madone 4.5
    Surly Ice Cream Truck Ops
    Salsa Pony Rustler GX1
    And a couple other beater bikes.

    Most of the snow has melted, and the ground is still frozen, except for the sections the sun hits. There was some mud. It was a short but fun ride on Sunday.

    Nice ride. Not cold, but cool, and once the rain started up, I got pretty soaked, and then got a little cold. Wet gloves and extended downhill sections make for cold fingers. Especially my index finger covering the brake. After a while, I'm thinking, DANG, my finger is cold!

    I usually ride in the morning (which was done Saturday) but with a new bike I had to ride again on Sunday which was done very late in the afternoon. Interesting how much the light is different just before sundown

    I ride solo 98% of the time

    That's Ride-Thru trail. Very fun. BIKE magazine did an awesome article on this area a while back called "Open Secret." I just read it again online yesterday. I love this area.

    Awesome! Going to read it now...funny in the NorCal forum we were just talking about JDSF and I was debating on heading there for my birthday next month. Grew up abalone diving there before my mtb days

    Back on track....I rode my ten mile commute to work this morning on the cx/roadie. I know not MTB but riding up the Napa Valley this time of year is gorgeous plus it gets my endurance up for the mountain bike

    ^Nice pic! Road ride is still infinitely better than no ride...

    All the snow is gone. Tried out a "summer" bike down by the creek and on the roads to get there n back. Played in the stream, got my feet wet on a crossing so I couldn't loiter much on the way back. 35° F and wet feet is no bueno

    The ride was great(and the fork is dialed), though after stopping ~10 times, I probably spent about half as much time clearing trails of fallen trees and limbs as on the bike.

    Loving all these pictures. ^^

    We did an Intense ride today and had a blast in the American River Canyon. Got some new PRs but more importantly we got to know each other better and had fun. Fast times are cool but people matter more.
