This is a link to a defining article about pairing beer and riding,specifically using beer for fuel!
What could be better, our favorite beverage, while riding. I have participated in a couple urban night cross rides with Ftom, Hogboy and Jeromy. Good fun was had by all and only minor damage to Ftom.
But then road rash is part of the game!

La ruta de los alces

We spent some time Sunday working on one of my dreams, a bike route of mostly single track out to Morton Lake. The section we worked on is mostly old grade. Ftom, Alien and I did a bit of clearing of wind fall, sussed out some reroutes around wet sections, created drainage ditches and all that with out beer! I am on medication and cannot drink the others showed solidarity! A couple more days and this section of the complete route will be open for riding.

                                              How the route got it's name!

The dream is for this route and others that connect with it to allow a loop ride of 80-100Km. with about 75% single-track. The remainder will be gravel road. There is at least one zip line planned, so riders will need a harness and knowledge how to safely rig themselves up! This is a big project and will take time.

                                                Ftom in heaven!

                                              This forest needs single-track!

Blog Blog Blog

Well I have finally done it, I created a blog. To be honest I am not sure how often I will post on it but I will try to post at least monthly. I said try! No promises!
You can expect rantings about beer fueled silliness, bike ride reports and suggestions on bike rides.
There may even be some gear reviews.
Hell, who knows what may end up in this experiment!
