Adventure: Climb

I know what you are thinking? Those shoes are pink. They ALMOST look like they date back to say the early 1990’s when those colors were in season. But wait, those colors are in season again. Right? So I could … Read More

Adventure: Inland OC

This was a good ride for me. Not too long and not too tall. I did ride several short hill sections back to back to make things more interesting. But, the key for me was lack of preparation. Normally, I … Read More

Adventure: Disconnect

WARNING: THIS IS KIND OF A RANT, BUT IT’S COMING FROM A PLACE OF CONCERN AND BEWILDERMENT NOT FROM AN “I’M BETTER THAN YOU” DIRECTION. I HAVE NO ANWERS. So I was at the mall attempting to buy a Speedo. … Read More

Adventure: Hand to Garden to Table

In theory this will work. Yes, I’m planting at the wrong time, but my travel schedule doesn’t play well with the flow of nature, so I have to get creative. It’s pretty damn amazing to stick something in the ground … Read More

Adventure: New Mexico

Give me a few days in New Mexico and I’ll make the most of it. Run(tiny), hike, fish and ride. Not to mention consume as much local stuff as humanly possible. A strange food trip for me. Eating once a … Read More

Adventure: Texas River Fishing

It started the day before. The trash talk. My mom and I. “You are probably too old to find the river, and even if you did you would probably fall in and I would have to save you,” I said … Read More

Adventure: Bianchi Hills

So this was only 33, but it was a test. First off, my cranks were falling apart. By the time I hit mile 20 I knew I had a problem. But I didn’t have a hex wrench with me, so … Read More

Adventure: Bianchi Coastal

Back from the New Mexico mountains. Sea level. Everything is easy. Up early, just spinning. Ticking of the k’s. Or miles or whatever unit of measurement you prefer. Alone on the road. Back Bay to Shady to Laguna Canyon. Stop … Read More

Adventure: Saint Peter’s Dome

It started while doing something else. Another hike. Through the burn. The giant, blackened burn. “Where does that road go?” We try it in the Jetta. Doable, but far more interesting via bike. Plans for Saturday change from the known … Read More

Adventure: New Mexico Earth

I stayed with a friend on this last trip. Up at 5AM everyday to get on the bike. Back by 8:30 which is 7:30 CA time, so an hour to eat, shower and get ready for the Blurb battle. Late … Read More

Adventure: Santa Fe Baldy

Sunrise. The parking lot. Four of us. Friends, some old, some new. Woodsmoke, pack and unpack. Balancing water supply with the unknown. A blister already there, but lace up tight and hope for the best. From 10,000 feet to 12,600. … Read More

Adventure: Santa Fe Life

Just a taste of what my life in Santa Fe is like. Early morning rides everyday. Hikes. Nothing too huge but all at elevation. Gearing up for a few more epic rides/hikes this coming weekend. Will share those once they … Read More

Adventure: Salsa Excursion

A ride of 50+ miles can vary in degree of difficulty. This ride was easy. Flat. Windy and “cold” but easy. No cramps, no destroyed legs. Just a slow burn. Need some new routes. Getting bored on this grid.

Adventure: Brommer Canyon

Wanting to puke is a natural part of the hiking experience, so go ahead. Nobody cares. I scored a parking spot, which was the real coup of this little excursion. Hidden in the middle of Irvine, this little hike is … Read More

Adventure: Salsa 0097 w Conti

This is the giant ramp I’m building in my front yard so I can jump things. Not really. You might be wondering why I would ride a bike like this on a 50+ mile road ride. I do have a … Read More

Adventure: Texas River Fishing

I think you might have seen these images prior to this post, but they were posted BEFORE I made all these recent changes to the site. I didn’t have an “Adventure” tab before, so these images were only posted on … Read More
