We Rode the New Demo Flow Trail and It Was Fun.

Two sections of the new flow trail in Demonstration Forest near Santa Cruz opened to the public last weekend. Section 3 and Section 5 are now open for business, and we headed down this Sunday to take the new trail for a spin and snap a few pics. Long story short: the new segments feel […]

Riding the Corral Loop: South Lake Tahoe

I finally got out to ride Mr. Toads a few years ago, and it was a really fun trail —worthy of seeking out to experience. It was a lot more fun than sections of the Flume Trail and Rim Trail we’ve ridden, two XC rides that weren’t as exciting as we had hoped on longer […]

Northstar Bike Park Opening Weekend Photo Run: Gypsy Trail

The Northstar Bike Park opened for the 2014 season this weekend and we made it a point to be there for a day of gravity fed riding. The jump strewn Livewire trail never disappoints and has become my favorite warm up line on the mountain. The terrain at the park is known for dusty and loose […]

2014 Boggs 8 Hour

The Boggs 8-Hour race has been running for nine years now, but this year marks the first time we trekked up to see what it was all about. Inga was signed up to race as part of a 3 lady team with her Luna Chix teammates, and I decided to tag along last minute to […]

Fresh Tracks: Tish Tang Ridge

We headed north the day after our ride at Paradise Royal to check out the Tish Tang trail. Located approximately an hour east of Arcata, Tish Tang is a Humboldt County trail destination featuring a shuttle friendly descent that had us covered in huge grins. We haven’t spent much time riding trails in the Humboldt […]

Rockville Park — Fairfield, CA

Rockville Park is best known in the Bay Area for the abundance of rocky terrain. Although the total area of the park is fairly small, the massive number of trails and lines that criss cross the area offer a variety of trail surfaces and ride options. Unlike many Bay Area parks, Rockville is extremely friendly […]

MTB Road Trip: SLO County

Although the 2013 winter here in the Bay Area resembles fall more than anything, it’s still cold in the mountains. Ready to ride some new trail, and tired of the same old, we headed four hours south to the San Luis Obispo area over our Christmas Break to ride something different. Thanks to Bill and […]

Bay Area Trail Rides: Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park

The East Bay Regional Park District isn’t known for having bike friendly single track worth writing about, much less packing up to drive out to. Take Pleasanton Ridge for example. Although the 5,271 acres of parkland holds mountains of potential for amazing trail experiences, we mostly talk about over grade dirt roads going straight up […]

Last Chance to Shred — Ashland, Oregon

Winter seems to come to us later and later every year these days. Not that I’d notice it living in sunny California, with our long riding season and temperate weather. It was a warm day here as we drove away with a tinge of regret to drive six and a half hours north for a […]
