USA*ROX: There's a problem with the map, The routes are all there, but moved up the map by 10 miles or so. We'll fix it. If you move your cursor over your name it shows only your 'Rides' on the map, until you move your cursor away. You can also click on the map, anywhere, and it will show everything on a bigger google map, everything is working there (i.e. routes displayed in correct location). Click the tab on the left to highlight 'All' or just show your team. Also, can move cursor over your name there too.

04/23/18 - Signed up for a hike in a OCTA property that was bought with our Measure M tax money as mitigation for freeway building to come. Supposedly preserved with very limited access. Well, this one is not fenced well, and it appears all of the historical use still goes on. There were local residents and dog walkers and MTB'ers and runners that all came in around us. Our guides said nothing to them about access; I'm guessing anyone could come at any time without a problem. At least until they invest in a lot of fencing.
Our guide was a botanist and really knew here stuff. She pointed out a lot of the natives and introduced plants. We went out to a nice veiwpoint overlooking the ocean and golf course.

04/21/18 - SS - 2nd ride of the day. 1:12 to the gate. Final big training ride for the Rwanda Ride scheduled for next Saturday. Handed out a few Rwanda Ride business cards and asked quite a few folks if they were riding. Warm, but a nice breeze. Front brake pads squealing like a stuck pig on the downhill - gotta replace those ASAP. Took a nice nap when I got home. I'm ready for the 50 miler next week!

02/24/18 - Brrr... It has been a while since I've needed to bring out the cold weather gloves and I kinda wished I would have this morning. Didn't feel my fingers until the top of Mustard. Reminded me of that Foghat song - cold ride.... I am freezing.... or something like that.

02/17/18 - SS - finally got the chain tension figured out by using a half-link. Lovely day for riding after volunteering at the Harding Time Trail this morning. Only walked a couple sections that were too chunky to ride - 1 small section by cell tower in O'Neill and the last pop at Chiquita ridge. Saw my first rattler of the season bombing down Chaquita just before the toll road - a 4 footer sunning himself. Rolled about 3 inches from his head. He didn't move. Water in the arroyo not too deep - cleaned all of them. Forgot how much flat there is on the route - hard to make time on the SS.
01/24/18, 11:29 AM Injury after Injury has had me off the bike. Now if I could only get back to where I was 8 years ago.
The YT is nice especially at the price point if was at. Does not climb as well as my Mojo did, but it%u2019s a fun bike.
01/06/18 - Aahhh... so nice to get back out on the bike and the trails. Super pleasant solo ride out to SP. Been sick for way too long! Lost 10lbs by starving the fever, and not drinking beer. Makes the climbs so much easier. In a rare twist I started feeling better and better as I climbed so I kept on going on out to SP, one of my favorite rides. Stupid stupid Garmin mysteriously stopped tracking my ascents/descents sometime around Beeks, did not notice until the descent back from SP. Had to power off/on to get the ascent tracking back, even though mileage and time, etc. was still tracking. Stupid Garmin. Truly, a Great Ride!
01/05/18, 04:41 PM Flu shot missed the mark this year. That's why there is the current endemic. I got my flu shot late Sept and am still suffering from this creeping crud. Hoping to get back on the bike this weekend. Glad you're feeling better.
11/18/17 - Blackstar Motorway was so sweet soothing and serene. Motorway was like always a treat. When I go to the Maple Springs Visitor Center Parking Lot it was awash with calamity spewing motor vehicles running amok. This was the first time I've been able to complete this route.

12/19/17 - no rso. StartTime=1731. [12762.FX9; 82740. total; 0. to tie Venus]. [12762.FX9; 82740. total; 7260. to tie Abigail]. This ride completed the virtual circumnavigation of the equators of the Earth, Moon, Pluto, Mercury, Mars and Venus and is 0 miles into the equator of a fake geomass named Abigail (7260mi circumference to yield 90000 total miles). The completion of Venus was expected to be in around 4 years after I'm 82. I finished Venus a few months early. This 12 year plan was conceived in 2006. My post of 2014aug05 when I completed going around Mars asked for suggestions as to what my next goal after Venus should be. bikesurfski suggested Uranus. I didn't like that because it would take me 15 years to complete and I would be almost 97 years old. In addition on 2014aug06 I added comments to the 2014aug05 post as to what was included in my 'total miles'. My balance is deteriorating and a goal that far into the future would not keep me motivated.
12/18/17 - Superb way to utilize a vacation day. I've always enjoyed the climb up Silverado and on a day/time with little to no traffic was just perfect by me. Out on Maple Springs I only encountered a couple hikers just below 4 Corners. So nice to climb out on Maple Springs again, always a favorite. Can't wait until we get some wet weather and everything gets a thorough cleaning. I'm no fan of Motorway and was expecting the worst, and got the worst in the shale section. After that I was pleasantly surprised to find the trail in great condition. Nice descent back to the truck made for a ... Great Ride!
12/16/17 - If the number of friends willing to do a big a$$ ride with you is a measure of success, J is a very successful guy. I think we were 14 strong for much of the ride. Others would come and go, just as J designed the route to be. Everybody appeared to be enjoying the day. Great Ride!
