Butte, Montana

We managed to sneak one last ride in before heading home. Butte was on the way and John had mentioned that Beaver Ponds was a great trail so we met him at International Coffee Traders in Bozeman first thing in the morning and headed out. And weather-wise, our luck had changed. It was a beautiful [...]

Bozeman, Montana

Just as I was starting to think we wouldn’t get a chance to ride in Bozeman, our luck changed. The sun came out and we made a new plan. Instead of doing the ride we originally had planned, we chose to do Grassy Mountain, which is part of the Bangtail Divide.

Sun Valley, Idaho (Day Two)

For our second ride in Sun Valley we decided take the chair to the top of Bald Mountain. We parked at the River Run Plaza, bought our tickets and headed up. It was a cloudy and windy day and the ride up the chair was definitely chilly. By the time we reached the top of [...]

Sun Valley, Idaho (Day One)

After two solid days of driving and watching the elevation steadily increase, we finally rolled into Sun Valley. On the drive there, I started to wonder what we were in for when I saw a rather large scorpion cross the road just north of Boise (I didn’t know Idaho had scorpions) but after being assured [...]

BC Bike Race 2010 Day 2 Video

I came across this video the other day by Gian Malar who was a racer at the BC Bike Race this year. He did a great job catching the Forbidden portion of the race on his helmet cam.

This past month has been awesome for some rare sights on the trails. Below are photos of the cool things I’ve seen over the past month.

Back in the Saddle!

After some heavy rains, unexpected snowfalls, and aggravated injuries I’m finally back on my bike! And I’ve discovered our local trailbuilders have been fairly busy…

Snowy Ride Down Cabin Fever…

After last weekend’s ride I made a New Year’s Resolution to ride more and after waking to a half decent day (meaning we didn’t wake to the sound of rain bouncing off the windows) we finally got out on the trails again. We also thought it would be nice to ride downhill for a change [...]

Boxing Day Ride on Hornby

After another 3 week hiatus thanks to winter weather, my bike finally saw dirt again… This time we decided to check out some new trails and hit up Hornby Island. We had been thinking of doing some riding over there for a while so we headed over on Boxing Day, taking our friends Jessica and [...]

And still more logging…

Okay, I’ll admit it… I’ve been spending a lot of time on the couch lately with the cold weather, but I have managed to get out on weekly rides. I might have sat out last week’s ride until news came that logging was about to start on the Lower Cumberland trails once again. After hearing [...]
