    I did something truly remarkable today. I went for a run for the first time since my ACL reconstruction surgery at the end of February. Woohoo! I ran 3 miles. It was nice to run again.

    Well, as someone who has had a lot of knee surgeries, I'm very happy for you! That's great news!

    It was great to run again. Bang for the buck, its hard to beat a quick 3 mile run. Lace 'em up and go! Less than 30 minutes later, out of the shower and ready to work. My average ride takes at least 2 hours of time--throw riding closes on, check tire pressure, wipe down the chain from yesterdays ride, lube it again, and go. I LOVE riding my bike fast and I am not a fast runner anymore, so I would rather spend more time on something I love than something that's quick & easy. You know what I mean. Haha!

I'm not sure what happened, somehow lost it on a curve on a descent and went off the road and into a ditch.

    So my rides are over for this year. Good news is the 45 miles of the 51 mile race that I completed were more than enough to put me over my mileage goal for the year.
    Congrats on the miles, but what a bummer to end the riding for a while.

    I hope you heal quickly.

    After a road ride with my daughter yesterday, left the computer today for a "quick" ride on the North Shore with a couple of buddies. And, though a couple of trails had some crunchy snow on them, it went as planned. Sort of.


    Very rideable, and no drama...


    Until we got to Kirkford, about 1/3 of the way down.


    My buddies surveying the scene. We knew it had been windy, but, not this bad.

    Fun to get out, and kinda glad I got to see the tree carnage....

    Last weekend's 24 mile ride in Auburn, California. It's not much to many of you, but 24 miles is a lot for me. My thighs were trying to cramp towards the end.

    Great ride, many times where I'm reminded how awesome this bike is. did you ride today?-img_20191123_143340%7E2.jpgdid you ride today?-img_20191123_151833%7E2.jpgdid you ride today?-img_20191123_121652%7E2.jpgdid you ride today?-screenshot_20191127-205724.jpg

    Thanks bjeast! It was -9c. We received about 50cm of snow a couple of days prior, so trails were barely rideable. Most of this ride ended up being on icy paved multi-use paths because even the fatbikes were struggling on the trails.

    Just a short ride after work to break in the new snow tires, I think winter is here to stay now, can't wait for some deeper snow to test out the float on these new Johnny 5's

    Great pics everyone! Today was probably my last ride in Squamish for the year. The temps were above 0 (or 30 Farenheit), the slabs were like velcro, and dirt was great (if a little frozen).

    December 1 storm ride... snow and ice pellets couldn't stop us. Ice cakes forming on the Humber River. Jack Frost nipping at our toes. Funday.

    Rode down to check out the fish ladder at the American River Hatchery.

    Last ride before the Pineapple Express slams California.

    Trails were perfect.

    7.5 miles in Sunday morning. We were able to get in our annual Sunday After Thanksgiving tailgate just before the snow and ice rolled in.

    I just ordered one of those. For as flexy as they are I hope it holds together.

    I'm guessing if you put it in hot water you can prob'ly get it back on.

    I have those on a couple of my road bikes but not my mountain bikes; I've got a black, blue and a green. I'm also only around 145 lbs. I guess I haven't ridden them in wet weather!

    Quick ride between storms. I knew there was a chance, so I threw the bike in the work van yesterday, knowing the day would close near some good trails.

    Trails were all either too muddy or solid ice, so my Sunday ride was on the road in the mountains west of here. I topped out near 8000'. The occasional icy patch of pavement and the sand they put down for traction kept the ride interesting.

    As usual, great pics everyone! I sort of rode on Sunday. I got up to the Fromme parking lot and realized I'd left my bin with all my gear (including my helmet) at home. So I rode up mountain highway (basically a fire road) to the trailhead then back down and did a very slow careful ride down an easy trail to the car. At least I got in some cardio.

    Lots of doubletrack/jeep trails, and most of the singletrack was rubbly horse trail, but the exploring and scenery made up for the subpar biking.

    Did my usual midweek ride today on las rutas de las haciendas here in Ecuador. Itís a nice 20km ride, not very technical though, but with some beautiful views, some decent climbs, and some fun down hill. And today it was a little muddy which always makes things a little more fun.

    Actually itís considered winter this time of year, the rain season, but the truth is that here in the Andes it is eternal spring time weather. Average year round temps are between 73-78 degrees. Perfect riding weather year round.

    I live at about 8,000 ft, so the temps are always mild and zero humidity. Up higher it gets colder, but nothing too severe unless your climbing one of the snow capped peaks. At the coast and in the jungle the temps are much warmer, between 80-95 degrees with a lot of humidity and the strength of the sun to burn you crispy within minutes if you donít have sunblock. So, I prefer the mountains all the way.

    Unusually cool and misty So Ca morning with tacky trails. Having mud on my bike is very rare.

    Got out to Squamish yet again yesterday! It was a short ride, but nice to get out there again! As much as I love the North Shore here in BC, Squamish is kinda taking over as my favourite place to ride!

    After the ride, we went eagle watching. Unfortunately, the salmon weren't running, so the eagles weren't plentiful.

    I had it in my head that I was going to bust out a full lap before work. This necessitates a 4:45a get-up and a 5:15 departure.
    Well, the dogs wouldn't cooperate, and it took me a long time to take out the trash, so I ran late...a good 15 minutes.

    Eff it. Eff work. Today I'll just be late. I'm doing a full lap. So I busted out and stood on the gas.
    I wasn't sure what gear I was in since it was dark and my tires were aired down and there was an inch of light snow over crusty dirt, but I was determined to not downshift.
    Still standing on the gas.
    The legs were complaining.
    Maybe my tire is flat.
    Dang, it's too early for this (the early ride is usually just a long warm-up in and of itself)... and as I have aged, my warm-up time has crept beyond 20 minutes. Even the little hills felt big. However, the corners were where the fun was happening: my timing was so perfect, and Bud & Lou were hooking up righteously.
    Still standing on the gas.
    Around the 25 minute mark I finally felt warmed up - like someone flipped a switch. Thoughts of downshifting utterly vanished.
    Still standing on the gas, and the turbo finally spooled up.
    Now it seemed that the limiting factor was snow in my eyes. Big flakes were now coming down. I even shut off my helmet light as the snow in front of my face reflected too much light to see forward.
    This is turning into an interesting ride, I thought.
    In the midst of snow blindness, supreme physical effort, and passing thoughts of what awaited me at my office, I came to a particular familiar spot and just stopped.
    I shut off my handlebar light and looked around and listened.
    I could hear individual snow flakes landing on my helmet and the shoulders and sleeves of my wind shell. All around me in the [not so] dark I could hear the flakes settling oh so quietly.
    It took me maybe a full minute to snap out of it. Late is one thing. But really late probably won't fly - not today.
    Snapped my light back on and back on the gas.
    The tires got quieter as more snow settled in, but before I knew it I was back at my truck. Done.
    And I wasn't even late.

    -F

    Beautiful day in the woods here in Atlantic Canada, feels more like Fall than Winter, looks like it's going to be a green Christmas again this year.

    Great write-up Fleas, always nice to read about the ride.

    Did a 46km ride this morning along the rim of Lake Yahuaracocha here in Ibarra, Ecuador. First hour and a half was some grueling climbing (2,000 ft) up the cobblestone goat path, but the view from the top was worth it.

    We celebrated winter solstice with a night ride. Some traditions hold that dark spirits walk the earth on winter solstice. We only encountered snow packed trails and saw a few twinkling stars

    Haven't posted in here for a while. Winter has been pretty depressing at 61N so far, no snow, lots of rain. Finally some colder temps this week and everything is pretty well frozen...but lots of roots and rough terrain. Not like normal. Studded tires are king. Somewhere below 0įF today...

    I went for a ride on my Fatty last week and crashed when I started losing the back end on a slimy, wet curved wooden bridge. I ended up dropping the front wheel over the side into a culvert. I rolled my ankle bad enough to think Iíd probably broken it...Iíd broken this same ankle around 15 years ago, and somehow this hurt much worse. Thankfully, the X-ray at the docís office showed only a couple of small bone chips and itís just badly sprained. No riding for a while for me.

    Happy holidays and happy new year to all!

    Started Sunday morning stranded at the gas station with a dead car battery. I was pissed and ready to throw in the towel when my riding buddy drove miles out of his way to give me a jump and get us on our way!

    19 degrees out, trails were snow-covered and icy, no studs. Everything was stacked against this ride. Look what I would have missed!

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    had to hunt around for places that were ok to ride / rained a lot here, most of the trails are closed.. so I got out and about on some fire-roads and a few other spots that are allowed to ride in the mud... The Maxxis Minion DHF / Aggressor tires on my bike are not it would seem super well suited to these conditions and rapidly packed up with mud... making grip something of an issue.

    8.5 miles of this nonsense was somewhat tiring if I'm honest but it was fun.

    better than sitting around the house.. wife was cleaning the house for tomorrow .. I offered to help but we both agreed it would be more helpful to get out of the way.

    We took our annual Christmas Eve ride today.
    We rode some icy trails and some paved paths and ended up at a coffee shop. Merry Christmas to all!

    No riding for me this weekend. Working today, parents visiting and supposed to get an inch of rain tomorrow. Our trails don't do well with rain, especially this time of year.

    Straight climbing for an hour and a half up this cobblestone road. I wanted to reach the top, but my legs just gave out a few miles short. Maybe next time. But what a burn!

    Great post Jayem! love the hot drink style - true exploring. What do you run for tires/studs? We've got similar terrain in New England and I've been experimenting with Kold Kutters on my old Vanhelgas.

    Rotate the photo around until it is the direction you want it to be and than save it. This should correct your problem. Also, when you are uploading the photos you will see their orientation. If they come out sideways, resave the image in the correct orientation and use that one.

    The last ride of the decade was a tough one this morning due to icy trails. We started in 12F temperatures and did a 10 mile loop that gained 2000'. I'm happy to have crazy friends with whom to do this sort of thing.

    Happy New Years!

    Well, not really a ride today, but we decided to build some drops at home to practice with today. Played around with the smaller one, was a little too small, so jacked it up a bit. Will jack it up a bit more to practice on before trying the bigger drop. Definitely need lots of practice, but I'm pretty stoked to be able to go out and practice drops at home!

    New Yearís day ride. Aloburo, Ecuador. A good 1700ft climb in the Andes. Started at 7,200 feet (where I live) and got up to 8,900 before the clouds rolled in and I could barely see, so I had to roll back before darkness fell. Nothing technical, just a typical long steep climb on the cobblestone roads that just keep going up and up. Happy New Year to all.

    Squamish and Fromme

    Haven't posted much lately because of spending eight days in Edmonton over Christmas. I didn't think I'd torture you with pics of the stationary bike the two times I made it into the gym!

    But on Jan 1, I made it out to Squamish for a ride with a couple of friends (three if you count the hairy quadruped).

    did you ride today?-img_0686.jpg
    Not the best view in Squamish, but this view from one of the climbing trails still never gets old!

    A little long in the tooth, but still game!

    did you ride today?-img_0679.jpg
    The three riding buddies!

    My bike at the end of the ride!

    Then on Jan 2, I went for a morning ride back to Fromme. Exactly a year ago, I had gone with a friend and taken this pic:

    did you ride today?-fromme-jan-2-2019-17.jpg


    So one year later - yesterday - I got this shot:

    His bike is a little better now!

    did you ride today?-2020-01-01-fromme-lewis-16.jpg
    Skipped the woodwork yesterday - wanted to practice the more natural stuff...

    Anyhow, it felt great to get back on the bike, even I was slower up the hills than usual!

    And ... back out this morning, this time to My Seymour here in BC's Lower Mainland. Turned out to be quite the start to the year - Squamish on the 1st, Fromme on the 2nd, and Seymour on the 4th. With lousy weather coming, it will be a few days before I get out again.

    Today was a good day. We pedalled up, rode a few trails down, the shuttled up and rode again. I don't usually shuttle, but it was worth it today. After the heavy rain yesterday, it was nice to ride in a little sun...

    Pangor (I think). Trails were wet, but riding well.

    Yup, great weekend, managed to get out for a ride both days.

    There's something extra peaceful about the woods in Winter, it's a different kind of quiet.

    I have to admit that even though I'm not much of a snow person (I grew up in Edmonton, Alberta, so you'd think I would be), that does look pretty cool. Sometime I'll have to rent a fat bike and give it a try!

    Yes it's great fun but it definitely helps if you love Winter, pairs well with snowshoeing which I also enjoy. A little more mellow than what you're used to though from your pics! I really love those action shots and great scenery from out West, looks like great fun but well beyond my skill level!

    I guess I've gotten less to the cold as I've gotten older, but I have friend out here who thinks fat bikes are great, so a couple of us might rent some and go up to Pemberton to give it try!

    Singlesprocket and I did a big loop for our Funday ride. Trails were frozen. Humber River ice is gone; beaver found a delicious poplar tree; I found an old stubby beer bottle (empty ); surfs up in the creek!

    The freeze / thaw cycle here the past several days left us with some pretty icy conditions on this morning's dawn patrol.

    Did I ride today? Hell yeah! 63*F, sunny and dry, ground still frozen. Spanked out nearly 16 miles with 1098 feet of climbing.

    Didnít expect to feel particularly strong as I havenít ridden this distance since mid November. But I did, like Superman strength.

    It must be from these new spin instructors pushing intervals and tabata nearly every class.



    Great ride. Flushed a fat Red tail hawk off the trail dangling a fresh red squirrel kill in its talons.

    Might go out again tomorrow.

    First ride of 2020.

    We went for a ride to check out the trails along the Humber River, following yesterday's downpour and last night's snowfall. The river was very high; the ice on the oxbows and ponds was too thin to ride. Not many trees down but the beaver was busy. And we were spied on by a Humber trash panda. Cool ride.

    Yesterday a couple of buddies and I went back to Seymour, here in the Lower Mainland. It had snowed on Friday but a lot had melted by Saturday. Off we went. We did a climbing trail called "Old Buck," and snow appeared on the trail. By the time we cut across and ended up at Powerline, it looked like this:

    did you ride today?-img_0903.jpg

    did you ride today?-img_0904.jpg

    We rode through the snow down to the trail head, and while things are a bit sketchy at first, after a while things got better (wet, but no snow)

    Woke up to Fat Bike heaven this morning, about 12 hours of ice pellets fell on Sunday and then froze overnight into a carpet of crust, just point and go just about anywhere through the woods!

    We haven't gotten fat bikes. We've done ok with studded tires. The trails are usually frozen or packed down. When contitions are good we can ride on the frozen river. A plus tire bike is probably on the wish list

    ^^^ Lots of snow on the Island. No rides here, over 2 feet of heavy wet snow to shovel. Not my idea of fun. Hope it melts, soon!

    Yes indeed. Snow is nice for about a day! Then I hope it melts! :-)

    I wish I had a chance to do a mountain bike ride. I haven't gotten to since the beginning of Dec between rain closing trails here, early darkness and a lack of lights and the holidays.

    Been doing a bit of BMX, gravel and trainer rides.

    It was 12įF (-11įC) on my ride this morning. That was cold enough that only the top half of my water bottle came out of my cage when I went for a drink.

    did you ride today?

    Weíre lucky in So Cal to truly ride year around. Got in a short 15 miles at Bonelli and it was cool and tacky.

    So sad to hear of the loss of Kobe, GG and the others whom lost their lives today. I hope each of you can enjoy each day and be kind to one another.

    I almost hit Bonelli, but rather rode longer, my rack wasn't set up, so just grabbed the gravel bike.

    It was a beautiful morning, until it wasn't.

    The rain on saturday melted some of the snow. Chris and I did a 17km run-ride pairing today. Trails were a bit slushy and not slippery. Many bridges crossed and hills were climbed. Couple of friendly roadies got a wheelie salute! Sunday = funday

    Obviously an example of those stuck up, snob road bikers some people are always complaining about.
    This post is a natural product. Variances in spelling & grammar should be appreciated as part of its character & beauty.
