Cycling for fun, fitness, and transportation

Bangtail Divide Trail - 25 miles

On Sunday, Brian and I rode the Bangtail Divide Trail, from Brian's house 2.5 miles to Stone Creek to Bracket Creek (shuttle car waiting). This is a great ride with over 22 miles of singletrack, lots of climbing, and fast descents.

Meeting people online

After meeting on an online mountain biking forum ( ) I met up with some local riders to ride middle Cottonwood, one the more technical trails around. Ben and Tim are fun, hard charging riders -- far more than I.  I hope to ride with them again. Only one picture came out, one that Tim took of me.


I love my Turner 5.5 spot

I've had this new Turner 5.5 spot long enough that I can say with certainty that I love this bike.  We rode our standard go-to ride today with the dogs, and Julie took a few pictures of me riding my all-time favorite bike.

Northern Bridgers

I enjoyed a great new to me ride this morning in the northern Bridgers with Brian, Greg, and Paul. We started early enough to miss the worst of the heat, although it was still plenty hot.
