mudworm ~  We both took Friday off. Almost went to Tahoe (I have a killer two-day itinerary), but decided to be lazy. Glad to be a guide on his Skeggs Everything Hall of Fame Induction ride. I can do this ride without a map now, although I'm a little SE'ed out, at least for now. …more…

Despite having issue with the name -- Tallboy -- that's the Santa Cruz 29er, Erik pulled the trigger.  Finally!!! His search lasted for more than a year. I'm not talking about half hearted search. He was reading about 29er's almost every night! ...more...

Last time I wrote about their heroic attempt, a gigantic ride in itself. I guess they learned from their experience, and November 13, 2010 went down as the day when Henry Coe first saw any human being (or, superman?) measured 100 miles of its trails in one day on a two wheel vehicle that is non-motorized …more…

I did it! Here is the proof:

A few days ago after our last weekend's ride, Skyline35/Charlie brought up this Everything Skeggs (aka All of Skeggs) ride, conceived by Biking Brazilian. I tried, but couldn't get the idea out of my mind even though that meant I had to say to Erik that I would not go …more…

Following conversation took place this Sunday morning.
E: Okay, I'm going in to work now. What are you going to do?
M: I don't know. *pout*

I really don't have anything to complain about.
Last Saturday was the get-together with Sean and Stephen and their families. Sean and Jennifer hosted the gathering at their place in Santa Cruz. Our host took Stephen, Erik, and me on a ride from his house to UCSC and Wilder. …more…

– Ahh… what a beautiful morning! Earlier at Windy Hill OSP, I was able to get a view of most of the Bay Area to the East including San Fransisco. I couldn't help but imagine the hustle and bustle among those tall buildings in the SF Financial District on a typical Friday morning like this; …more…

Note: I wrote this while watching a movie, so I was mainly rambling here. I found it so hard to read that I couldn't even go over it once to proof-read.
I rode Old La Honda with other Low Key climbers. My personal best on it so far (before today) is 21:50. That was on a Wednesday after work in May. …more…
