A Rainy Day at San Juan Trail 2006

With its never-ending switchbacks, sand ruts, technical granite rock, cliff exposure, and 2000ft+ of elevation gain in the first 4-5 miles, San Juan Trail is always a humbling experience--especially in 100 degree southern california summer weather. Fortunately, the rain last night and a cool December day made for a chilly 18.4 mile ride. I also managed to not fall a single time on this trail (a first)! However, I've yet to hold my concentration long enough not to dab on the way up.

Exploration Trail to Keller Peak 2006

Day 1 of my 3 day Thanksgiving mountain bike trip in the San Bernardino Mountains. I rode 60 miles of sweet singletrack. Day 1 was Exploration Trail to Keller Peak and back, day two was a 30 mile shuttle along the Santa Ana River Trail and day 3 was a couple of Pine Knot/Cabin 98/Fire access road loops in Big Bear.

In between Running Springs and Arrowbear, Exploration trail is a short 5 mile climb of beautiful singletrack. From the top of Exploration trail, a 2.5 mile climb along a paved access road leads to Keller Peak fire lookout.

Carrizo Gorge 2006

Night ride on the Carrizo Gorge railway line. Note this trail is no longer legal as the line has been reestablished and is currently in use. One of the tunnels on this trail is exactly a half mile long. Amazingly, the tunnel is perfectly straight. All of the tunnels are supported by huge wooden braces which, when rode through, reminded me of the Halls of Helm's Deep in the Lord of the Rings': The Two Towers.

Oregon Roadtrip 2006

My second road trip from the OC to Portland Oregon. This year my friend Ryan and I covered 100 miles of singletrack, drove 2600 miles, and camped in the Redwood forests in NorCal and Crater Lake in Oregon. Trails ridden include the Santa Cruz Trail in Santa Barbara (CA), Little Hill in the Jedidiah Smith Forest (CA), a segment of the North Umpqua Trail (OR), Alpine Trail in Oakridge (OR), Mt. St. Helens (WA) and the Lewis River Trail (WA).
