Went for a dad ride this morning.
Two dads, home by 11:30, keeping it family friendly.

Trad Deliverance, then up again for a Mr X variant.
Cold as shit southerly, some rain, some hail, some mud and some very slickery roots.

Good times :)

Has Nelson been full of soggy southerly too? Riding tech in horrible conditions?

After many months off the Mountain Bike I made some time this weekend to join some work colleagues in Soquel Demonstration Forest. Probably the best mountain biking trails in the San Francisco Bay Area. I had never been there before, just because I have many perfectly decent trails that are much easier to get to.

I did learn 2 important things:
1) No amount of road miles, commuting to work, will prepare you for the exertion of Mountain biking.
2) Even if people on the trail think your 18 year old vintage cannondale is cool, you're just making things hard for yourself. A combination a rusty skills, lack of fork travel and rim brakes sent me over the handlebars at one point. I need to seriously consider buying a new bike

I can't believe how narrow those bars look.Granted a GoPro lense is gonna make it look worse than it is, but still, your average SF fixie riding hipster would be happy with a set of those bars. :p

Had to check Flickr to see if that was a cellphone camera you were using.
Nice pictures!

First ride on new bike! Great early spring ride, nice and dry.

First time I've turned on strava all winter. Only dissapointment was the seals didn't get riled up and chase off the dude trying to get close for a photo.
