Summer is here!

I thought I'd write a little post about what has gone on this Spring/Sumer and get everyone up to date on my going ons.  The winter was long and the riding started later this year.  After being sick three times and not doing much exercise…

Wearing the other shoe

Three times now I have gone into the woods for a hike.  Each time I left behind my family in the process.  One member in particular always worries the most, my mom.  So on this, Mother's Day I thought I would let her know I have worn her…

Caged Tiger

Metaphorically speaking I'm a caged tiger... Of course my life is much better than that of any caged animal but similarities are there.  Last night I saw a video on Facebook about a woman who could supposedly communicate with animals.  She…

Beer Can Wallets

So winter time is when I "kinda" slow down. Most winters I get out my sewing machine and get creative. Two years ago I saw a bartender who has a leather wrist band that had a PBR can riveted to it. It made me think I could do something similar…

The End of Riding Season

It's been a while since I last posted anything (Sept. Thomas Lakes).  It's hard when you live in a place like this to want to spend any more time than I already do on a computer  at work, when I get home.  My life has been taken over by cyclocross…

Schofield Pass

This past Monday I decided to ride Schofield Pass despite the weather forecast saying there was a 70% chance of rain, but not just rain but at times heavy rains.  Our route was to take us through a river valley which was probably not the smartest…

Getting into the Backcountry

On this years Fourth of July I went for a bike ride with my co-workers to Dexter Park.  So far in Colorado this is the my number one place to ride.  It's everything I expected when I read Mountain Flyer Magazine all those times sitting in…

Bikepacking at Last

I have been dreaming and talking about going bikepacking for a long time now.  I planned to go this past Sunday now that I had all my bags and no excuses left.  Come Sunday the thunder storms rolled in one after the other.  As I sat there…
