    Yup! Summer is our only non-prime riding season - shorter early/late day rides due to heat, or have to get up to elevation.

    The rest of the year it is always prime somewhere nearby. Higher elevations are limited due to snow/downed trees from winter into spring. Winter is prime desert and coastal biking season.

    Great unless you're a skier. But I hear flights are cheap these days....

    With Taos trip canceled got out for one of my local (from my driveway) rides. Pretty soon views will disappear, but riding around here is pretty good regardless

    De-commutified the Journeyman. I think Iíll be doing a fair bit of social distancing on her in the next few weeks.

    Just outside of Phoenix... Social distancing...

    We started this trip before everything started shutting down and have had to change our plans a little. No Lego Land or other attractions, but have been able to spend a bunch of time together outdoors and sleeping in the camper. Not sure if we would be safer at home or not - our exposure to people is pretty limited here as it would be at home - maybe better as we don't know anybody and don't have the pressure of seeing friends or coworkers. We're having fun at least.

    From the other night. Caught a break in the storm and went for it.







    This place is a total shit show most days with "hikers" waiting in hours long lines to get their picture taken on this rock. With some rain I had it all to myself....

    Cool ride yesterday up Lawson Peak




    Started at a different trailhead and rode in. It was packed everywhere, and these are what I consider to be less known trailheads. Probably 50 cars at one of them.




    Nice ride descending through some oak forest to get to the climb. Those strands behind the post are all poison oak




    On to the climb. The forest service converted this jeep trail into non motorized singletrack a couple years ago. Sucks for the ohv crowd. Good for MTB




    The hikers have found it. Never saw a hiker here before. Today, tons of them. FS did a pretty good job. It will be nice once some plants grow in




    Rode out past the peak on the jeep trail a couple miles. Cool terrain and awesome views




    Crazy lighting at sunset

    Went for a ride around McDowell mountain yesterday evening. I was pushing daylight a bit so threw in a few lights. Those can't into handy as at the top of the climb (thankfully the top), my freehub stopped engaging on forward pedaling. My bike became and a really expensive full suspension scooter. I had just put in my lights so spent the next hour and a half coasting, scooting and walking out.

    Thankfully I had cell service, water, clothes, food and everything I needed. It was a beautiful ride nonetheless, and the walk out wasn't too bad.

    Nothing better than the desert in bloom. McDowell brings back memories of the 24 hour races there. I could do that loop blindfolded.

    It's a reynolds TR hub. The bike shop took a look and it looks like the pawls and ring are in good shape, but the ring is rotating in the hub.

    I got a great hookup and am hoping that I can get this covered under warranty. Now I'm just trying to figure out how to salvage the next two weeks of this trip as my bike is currently not rideable...

    Went for some more backcountry riding yesterday. El Cajon Mtn is one of the more visible peaks from much of central and south San Diego and sits above a granite wall named El Capitan. There is a trail out to the peak above that wall that makes for a great once-every-few-years acquired taste beatdown. It's a tough ride or hike. Or in my case, ride and hike.


    That is the trail in the middle there. Just a little steep. And this trail truly is uphill in both directions.




    These guys taking the easy route to the top, while practicing appropriate social distancing




    Enjoying the views during one of many rest stops




    long time resident of the mountain




    Ditched the bike 1/2 mi below the summit and hiked the rest. Up top the trail is marked with green posts every 20 ft. Guess some people have trouble following an obvious trail?




    Looking down toward El Cap Reservoir, Anderson Truck Trail, and Alpine




    Great view looking SE. The taller peak in the middle is where I was the day before




    Looking west under darkening skies. Despite a couple tough climbs on the way down I was back at the truck in an hour, just as it started raining. Sucks to be any of the hikers I passed on the way down! Hardest 12mi ride I'll do this year. Not the best ride but worth it for the views and the cool terrain.
