A hot Summer requires occasional respites. We drove to Groveland, CA where we sampled the offerings at Exchequer Bike Park on Lake McClure. It was a fun and interesting day that was filled with some great downhills and great people.

In a feature that departs from mountain biking just a bit, I have decided to share my 2018 backpacking trip to Graveyard Lakes in the Sierra Nevada.

RipFlo

As the proud owner of a new Ibis Ripmo v2, I wanted my first ride to be one for the books. To that end, I called my Patrick, riding buddy, and we met at the Soquel Demonstration Forest lot to ride the Flow Trail.

Carolina on my Bike

Our climb up to Pilot Rock was an exercise in pain and endurance. My legs were shot by the previous day's 16+ mile ride with over 2000 feet of climbing up steep inclines and over rocky, rooty obstacles. Pilot Rock was an ascent that, to put mildly, hurt. But the payoff was worth the effort!
