Wilder Side

With the weather warming up and the sun coming out. Many times recently, it has been tempting to hit some of the local trails on the bike. With how full they have become, being the only place a lot of folks can get out and still say close to home. I have been denying myself the enjoyment in favor of safety. I tend to stay home when a lot of riding opportunities surface.


One of the major downhill rides from my trip to Ashland, Oregon in October, 2019. Ashland Outdoor Adventures took us to the top and dropped us off for the 12 mile trip back into town.


My neighbor recently got a new bike from his Brother-in-law. It's a first-generation Yeti, and it's awesome. He has been dying to get it out on the trails near our house, so I finally arranged the time and we got the kids together and headed out.

Calero Corona

It's been almost 2 weeks since my ride in Los Gatos, and three weeks since the Shelter In Place order went into effect here in California. The Los Gatos Ride was WAAAY too crowded for my taste, and I'm going nuts not being able to ride.


On a rare sunny day in early March, I took a few hours to run out to my local trailhead and shake things up just a little bit. I reversed the direction of my typical ride and got humbled by climbing up my "downhill" trail.

It's an interesting time. With all that is happening in the world, we need to be careful and act wisely when it comes to how much time we spend with others outdoors.

Trestle – Winter Park, CO

In September of 2018, I took a 3-week road trip around the western states with my camera and my mountain bike. While on that trip, I randomly drove through the Rocky Mountains and, like many before me, fell in love with Colorado. On the advice of a friend, and while looking for a place to ride for the day, I stopped in Winter Park to ride my first ever bike park.


I won't lie - it's been a rough week. We have experienced several family tragedies, and my time is tight. (Thank you all for the well wishes, I really to appreciate all the positive feelings!) It's been tough to get out on the bike.
