Not sure what hit me recently, but I’m convinced we’re totally f*cked with respect to climate change.Continue reading
A “quick” ride with James and Mike in the Tugwell area (because we couldn’t get out of it).
9:15 AM to 7:15 PM … whoops, (way) overdid it again.Continue reading
James W invited Devon and I along to join some other riders up near Onion Lake, in the area where the Monkey Wrench race is held.
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 quick run through “the loop”, hitting Avatar Grove, and the Red Creek Fir with Daya on the 640.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…

Sorry, haven’t had time to blog the big
Tuktoyaktuk Inuvik ride, may have to break it into chunks. It didn’t come out as planned, but there were no injuries beyond skinned knuckles and being sucked nearly dry of blood by the bugs. Lots of wrenching, too many zero mile days and consequently lots of high mileage days. I will get to it … sometime. Currently planning another trip to Molybdenite.
Another great ride. A bit wetter than previous years, but I probably needed that as a prelude to Tuktoyaktuk. I certainly won’t be taking the same pair of boots north.
