This ride was a bit of an adventure. Definitely not the ride we thought we were going on. There ended up being a bunch of downed trees covering the trail. We moved the ones we could and apparently weren't paying attention to time. Before we realized it the sun was setting and we were racing the clock to get back to the truck.
I'm just a guy in Northern California that loves riding bikes. Most of my time is spent on a mountain bike. I also own a single speed for around town and commuting. Last but not least I own a cross bike. I couldn't bring myself to buy a road bike just so I could do long road rides that had more climbing than I could handle on the SS. That was my compromise. I'm originally from Pennsylvania and have that blunt east coast attitude. Some people love it, some people hate it. Either way I wake up in the morning.
