Nicasio Reservoir

Hicks Valley Road

My big stretch/goal ride for 2015 was the SFR Shasta Mountains 1000k, which would be a multi-day extravaganza, so I figured I’d better do some riding-both-days-of-the-weekend sorta things to get some sort of prepardedness for the hey I just rode my bike a mildly inappropriate distance yesterday and here I am going to do it again today kinda thing. 772 more words

A tale from my saddle: Part 2

As the first pangs of pain coursed through my nerves, the game began. It was like the confluence of two opposite streams of air, resulting into an unavoidable twister.
