Its been surprisingly dry in the Portland (area) Oregon. Got another couple of weeks of Cyclocross in.

Me at the Oregon State Championships, CAT4 35+ masters....

My daughter and our dear friend, Pro(?) rider for Speedvagen being a great mentor / ambassador/ roll model to the girls that bike.

Riding the hill, when all the boys are pushing...

Will have some Mountain bike adventures in the Spring and Summer, thanks for tolerating my posts, and not being angry "that's not a mountain bike"..

Love the flowy nature of MDO, used to ride West Cuesta Grade a lot, frequent trips to Santa Barbara to shuttle Paradise road. Cerro Alto is a wicked climb if want a workout (out near Morro Bay on the way to Paso) with an even more wicked decent (think FAST).

When pressed for time I rode Irish hills a lot and Johnson ranch. Good XC style trails with enough baby head sized rocks to keep it technical and interesting.

But by far my go to was back side of Madonna. Could ride out of my garage, up and down anytime I had an hour to spare.
