    Raced last weekend, crashed, and made it on the pinkbike race recap. You’re in the presence of an internet celebrity.

    Big turnout this morning at the local trail system. We put 1000 ponderosa pine saplings in the ground scattered through the burn scar from 2 years ago!

    The new segment of the Peak to Plains bike path in Golden is pretty damn cool. Awesome suspension bridge.

    Taos Gravel 2021. 20ish riders from Taos Plaza yesterday. Some people went big, others medium. No one went small.

    Spent 11 days riding around the France / Italy border in the maritime Alps, basically doing a semi-circle around Monaco. Started in Sospel France, then to Molini Italy, then down to the coast in San Remo and Finale Ligure. I'm pretty bad a taking pictures (particularly of riding), but here's a random assortment from the trip:

    Day 1 ride in Sospel, heavily jet-lagged.

    More riding in Sospel. One of the coolest things about the area is how dramatically different the terrain is within a small area.

    A couple valleys over, and the other side of the border. A cool, easily accessed alpine ride around Mt. Toraggio near Molini. 2,000 feet up for 5,000 down.

    Down to Buggio. There's lots of these cool little villages that are erected in improbable places in these valleys. People still live there, but a lot of the houses are abandoned now. You can apparently buy houses for €1. They're fixer-uppers though.

    Those cool little villages also have a bunch of cool little streets / alleys that're fun to ride through (at a modest pace, so as not to piss off the elderly Italian ladies). This one had trail above, and then more trail below.

    The trail below that village. And by trail, I mean the medieval road that went up the village. Lots of switchbacks, which is par for the course on a lot of the trails in that area. Almost all of the trails around Sospel and Molini are repurposed Roman or medieval trails. You'll think you're on some rocky singletrack deep in the woods until you look a little closer and realize the rocks are purposefully laid cobbles that have been there for 2,000 years, and the "bench cut" on the trail is actually a stone retaining wall. Pretty cool.

    More scenic villages. This one was at the bottom of a trail between Sospel and Molini. A good stop for lunch - a couple Euros buys some really good bread and a bunch of cured meat. And maybe some wine, if the mood strikes.

    From Molini, down to the ocean. This one is near San Remo. Spent a day running trails that're used by a bunch of the DH world cup teams for off-season suspension testing. Super fun trails, but that day was cut short by an exploded carbon rim and a cracked frame (1 trail claimed 2 bikes). Apparently it's a good area for equipment testing.



    Not a bad spot for post-ride beers.

    I didn't take many pictures of our last couple days in Finale Ligure, but I get the hype now. Tons of trails, most of which are easily shuttled. Tons of enduro-bros too - every little bar and coffee shop has a pile of $8,000 enduro bikes outside it. This pic is from a little village above Finale where we had lunch. 3 courses, with wine, while seated on a patio covered in grape vines, overlooking roman ruins. $18 or so. Pretty standard, really.

    Nice trip report! I rode in Finale Ligure 17 years ago. Ended up riding with Jacquie Phelan. She's fast. Didn't realize it had hyped. I rode from an abandoned military base down. Don't remember much else. I wrote an article in a magazine about it.

    Nice! Yeah, I guess Finale paid to get the enduro world series to come to town, starting around 8 years ago. Since then, it sounds like it just gets busier every year. A guy was saying that, on a busy weekend, the popular trails see around 700 riders / day.

    That military base is still there. They call it the NATO base, but it was unclear to me if it was NATO or U.S. Either way, it closed down sometime late in the cold war. We were told of some conspiracy theories about it closing because of a scandal where the U.S. military shot down an Italian passenger jet after mistaking it for a Libyan fighter. A passenger jet definitely crashed, but there's still no conclusion on why.

    Regardless, there's a bunch of fun trails dropping down from that base. And some entertaining graffiti and windmills.

    (not pictured: a swarm of German endur-bros riding around in circles with their guide, who is trying to teach them how to bunny hop).

    Did my now traditional fall mtb weekend in Leavenworth. Fall colors were popping and Freund Canyon was riding perfect on Saturday. Sunday was a washout on Sage Hills outside of Wenatchee so I bailed after a couple of hours and went in search of Larch trees on Blewett Pass.
    Was riding solo so all pics either trail senics or timer self-portraits of my backside.
