For a while, our road trip to Oregon did not seem it would ever happen — it was postponed at least three times. Then we flip-flopped between tandem touring and mountain biking. I have always liked our road trip setup where we fit all our bikes and gear INSIDE the CR-V, but I didn't think we …more…

Just wanted to compose a list of a few memorable rides we did at Henry Coe. Click on the ride to see comments and descriptions, where usually ride reports are linked. Overall, it runs in reverse chronological order (but not set in stone).

We did Tahoe Sierra 100 mountain bike ride on Aug 23. Some say it's the hardest mountain biking century in the country. I don't know if it is true, but I know it deserves a ride report. However, some time has passed and I didn't find time to write, but more importantly, I didn't know where to start. …more…

On the evening of July 9 while I was still at work, I received an email from Mr. Mud with this content:
I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, …more…

Glad that Mr. Mud and I could both take the Friday off at a last minute's notice. With the rain pending as well as friend's plan to climb at Pinnacles for the weekend, this looked to be our only chance to get a ride in, so we made good use of it. It was a gorgeous day. …more…

"Did you get the license plate?" Mr. Mud asks while adjusting his body position on the couch cushion with a grimace on his face. Roxy, all her 14 pounds, rocked from his one leg to the other, but she seemed undisturbed at all. She did not see us the last two nights, so she's content to get her lap …more…

mudworm ~A great day riding at Coe. Mr. Mud was in the lead pretty much all day, but I was happy with my own riding. Was a good day for cleaning — I rode no dab on most trails except for Center (Not) Flats where my new rear tire seems to slide constantly on the loose surface. …more…

Today, Mr. Mud threw me out of the house so he could turn the house upside down without me getting in the way. We are emptying out the spare bedroom for my nephew's arrival next weekend. I went and did a ride at Skeggs that I now call Skeggs Lite 2.0. …more…

Vacationing in Mendo and found this route. Despite the GPS track, there were still lots of out&backs and stoppings trying to make sense of the "off course" alerts. Forgot to pack any trail food and sports supplements for the trip. Was surprised to see how tiny an Egg McMuffin was at the trail head. …more…
