I’ve been riding a fair bit over the last months, so it was strange to realize that I haven’t ridden anything technical for months. Taking a loaded bike through a rough crossing or a rock garden isn’t the same thing as running tight left/right up/down single track with slippery bare wet rock bits. It is enough different I was getting nervous about it.Continue reading
hah! This blog used to have a “windsurfing” category. I get to use it again (First time in 3 *ing years!) I “ran out of skin”, but still had a good time up at nitinat.Continue reading
A weekend+ trip, officially back to Molybdenite, but we expected the wildfire smoke to mess up the view. Neither of us had ridden either the east or west sides of Harrison lake. Throw in a couple hot springs and it sounded like a fine excuse to go riding…

Gah, I’m getting way behind on my posts. Gary had a great ride that came together with a slew of riders.

From there we went looking for a track that James and I had exited on (2018/03/30). We didn’t find it, instead we found a trail marked as “Something Nasty”…

So, you pulled your motorcycle starter apart, to replace (brushes) or rebuild something, and now that it’s back together it turns great but the bike doesn’t crank over.!? Continue reading
Rob Hayward invited me to “do some technical riding” with a friend of his. I extended the invite to Mike (knowing that James was away in Washington). This was a good day of riding, much of it tight and slow single track.
Garry posted a “clean up” ride on Facebook, up Braden Main. It seemed like a good idea, cover some new turf and open (or keep open) some trail… Continue reading
