Pumped, Silverstar vacation.... yes

Day at Sandy Ridge

The weather guy said to brace for some of the hottest weather of the year. he was right, we hit 75 today and it looks like it'll be around the low 80's for awhile. This type of weather makes our NW winters a breeze. Had an awesome ride with Laurie, Evan, Amy and Dennis today. Laurie is really progressing after only her 3rd time on her new bike. Here are some pictures and short vids from the day. (Don't all you million readers worry, i'll have my GoPro back up and running for our Whistler trip this year.) Oh some of the pictures are kind of weird because i only had the iPhone... and forgot to turn off HDR.







Wild Raspberry's were popping up everywhere.

Lots of climbing + jumping + descending = Riding Post Canyon.

Saturday is the day to get out to Post Canyon in Hood River.

Temps hit the mid 80's... the bugs were crazy thick and the dirt was starting to get dry. Finally feels like summer.

It was a pretty busy day at Post. A lot of people there and a lot of kids. Its god to see parents out there with their kids so they can ride Family Man, Middle School and Pump Track.


One of my favorite things about riding there are the views of many cascade volcanoes. Here is Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams and St. Helens.

Look to the right and you have Mt. Hood.

Here is a short video of our climb up. Everytime we ran into a FR area we decided to stop and do some riding.

A tale of two ridges

Took the opportunity to go out and ride Sandy Ridge with Evan and his wife Amy on Saturday and then hit up Raven's Ridge on Sunday with Todd and a few guys.

Saturday was awesome, great weather, great dirt and Amy and I took our new bikes out for the first time. She rides a Santa Cruz Butcher with a very custom spec. Evan kills at getting color matched components without it getting stupid.


Amy killed it on the ride, we did 3 laps, pedaled up the road and hit the trails down. The weather and scenery was so nice that i should have taken my GoPro... next time.

The hardtail I decided to build (banshee paradox) was in a ridable state so i couldn't wait to take it out. Not only have i not owned a hardtail for a long time but i've never owned a 29'r. In fact the only time i've ridden a 29'r was in a parking lot so i didn't know what to expect. Needless to say it ripped. I now know why people ride trail with big wheels.




Amy and Evan hit this turn hard then it was time to head back down to the car to go grab some chow at Island Teriyaki

Sunday came around and it was time to get out the big bike and head to Raven's Ridge. I have never been on this trail so i didn't have a lot to expect. Needless to say it was rad, even if it decided to start raining a bit early on.

No photos but i did edit a short video of the day. Thanks to Travis for supplying the truck to shuttle full laps all day.

Good February Ride

David and I went out to do some riding at Blackrock during a nice day in February.

David is a shredder so keeping up with him all day (and by all day, i mean ALL DAY) made me feel like i got better and faster. we did a ton of laps, dodged a lot of falling debris, cleared a tree from the trail, did a ton of laps and ate at Paula's.

David and I saw a cool line before the Road Gap on Sicktar Gnar so we decided to session it a few times. Its a small transfer into a berm... very fun. Here is a video.



Also we ran into Patrick who took a video of David and I training the Airplane Hanger.

Good Day.
