Wheeling at Pedalfest

We showed up in force at Pedalfest again this year, running an all-day Learn to Ride workshop (got two new riders! And more to come), and having two sessions on the stage where we demonstrated various one-wheeled contraptions.

Washed away

Josh is moving to Portland, in case you were wondering if it's done as a place for hipsters. [Yes.] We got some time to head out on a ride before he takes off next month, and he wanted to hit the river bed in Dimond Canyon.

Life with a Jenni

Jenni Rinker, world-famous member of the KH Factory Team and the IUF Board, is in town from Denmark for a couple of weeks for a wedding, and we had to take her out to show her some of the awesomeness of California. And this time of year, Napa Skyline is about as awesome as it gets, green and inviting, with gorgeous flowers everywhere and still a hint of a cool breeze.

For those about to Rock

For our second ride of the weekend we headed out to our favorite collection of rocks in Rockville Hills Park, which had been closed because of damage from the heavy rains. It turned out to be a very session-oriented ride; we spent over an hour in the quarry, working on the traverse, the chutes, and a couple of impressive lines from the very top.

Peak experience

We're three weeks from a desert weekend, so it's time to double up on our rides. Saturday we started out with a relatively mellow ride in Joaquin Miller and Redwood. The forecast had been for rain, and things were wet in the early morning, but it started to clear up just as we got on the trail, and turned out to be a beautiful day for riding.

YIMBY MUni

Colin invited us over to his backyard for a MUni ride on Mt. Sutro in SF. It isn't an epic ride, but all MUni is fun, and it's hard to beat for location. (You can walk to beer afterwards.)
