  • The ice in my esky is done, but this guy was still cold so I schlepped it with me. Under a tree, watching people frolic on Shaver Lake #RideWriteRetreat Think I'm gonna have a swim when I'm done. Trail so far is mostly fireroad.
  • I still can't believe this happened. I'm descending Kaiser Pass and begin to wave to the only other cyclist I've seen all day, climbing up. She begins to wave madly and so I wave bigger and then I think 'Wait...that looks like..' and she yells "JJ McCrae-Cray!" And I go "Rita Jett!" And then we both go nuts. This was not planned. This was insanely random. It really made my day. She was riding to do an overnight and ride some trails. Stay safe Jettpack (it's supposed to storm) #RideWriteRetreat
  • Hammered up here after work. So quiet. So... kinda creepy in the woods with things rustling in the undergrowth.

  • Day 6 of no TV. My flat has never been so clean and I just rearranged the living room. Now I can people watch out my window and read a book at the same time.  I've also de-lime scaled most of the bathroom. Any second now, I might stop finding ways to procrastinate and actually work on the book. (That's a screen saver on screen. I'm playing music through TV, but I'm telling myself it's broken for viewing stuff. There's actually a lot of time in the day...)

  • New shoe day. Fresh. Clean.
  • #tbt Evading in the forest. Yep, being a stand in for @eyeroam on a shoot in Bend. And then he shot the real talent and I got the hell out of the way. ????
  • Last day of Kanza Camp. Yuri is waiting waaaay down the road for me while I get my Instagram on. #dk200 #roguepumpkin
  • Rolling back into emporia after 50 miles of dirt ballin' at Kanza Camp. #roguepumpkin #dkcamp
  • New type of trail challenge for me. #roguepumpkin with #rumor
  • Cheating on Pumpkin Butter. But hey, I didn't bring the Rumor so it could have a Thule vacation. #roguepumpkin
  • It is ridiculously windy up on the ridge line. Like scary windy. #roguepumpkin #interloper
  • Goes from super gravelly, loose dirt to yellow sandiness is the blink of an eye. #roguepumpkin
  • The wind is gusting right to left, so I'm constantly being urged off the edge. It sucks when descending too. #roguepumpkin #interloper
  • Although I have hike-a-biked some stuff, love looking ahead and seeing things I can do. #roguepumpkin
  • Rock dweller #interloper #roguepumpkin
  • Cold start this morning, but so lovely. Glad to be riding over this and not on it. #roguepumpkin
  • Going up. (I'd already waaahooooed my way down) #roguepumpkin
  • Three mile climb or three mile descent. I did both. It's a shitty road to get there tho. High traffic, no shoulder. #roguepumpkin Between Flagstaff and Sedona.
  • Pumpkin looks one way #roguepumpkin
  • I look back. Yeah, that was fun. #roguepumpkin
  • Croissant and double shot espresso doping pre-Zayante. That's ok, right? I'm only 10 miles into the ride. Whoops! Slow easy ride today anyway. Gonna enjoy the scenes of wonder.
  • I don't remember the sign being this colorful. #zayanteicecream
  • Invisible horseman #madewithfaded #zayanteicecream (You shot the invisible horseman!)

  • I cannot recall a time when I have looked so dynamic.
  • The family the raarssss together stays together. Skyland Ranch road. (Mamma Dino is huge) #seenonmyride
  • Baby 1. #seenonmyride
  • Oh, that's just a dinosaur hatchling in my front yard. #seenonmyride
  • Whilst I'm pretty sure 'darkling' is a typo (good one, Aptos Times), it sure does change how you view the relationship.
  • Highland highjinx
  • Don't go chasin' 'em, yo.
  • It evades wind, not Pilsner #evade
  • Sand Point. It's raining, but not hard. Road up here has many glue traps. #slipnslide #outrigger #photosphere
  • Glad good won over evil and I got off the couch. Right before I got home, it started a heavy downpour, but I only had intermittent showers for most of the ride.
  • A dirty #pumpkinbutter is a happy Pumpkin Butter #cruxlove #crux
  • Big smile from "The Draft" He really enjoyed that freshly laid, shitty gravel! #commutelove
  • Same location as the other night, but this time with 100% more cow. #commutelove #morecowbell
  • What does #tourdetree do? Makes you not give a shit about eating that donut this morning. #commutelove
  • We climbed until we were well above the fog and marveled at the world. #commutelove  #madewithfaded #karlthefog
  • The sky was a magnificent pink purple and orange bruise as I descended and I raced to get to this corner to catch it. By the time I screeched to a halt, got off my bike, fumbled my phone out of my pocket it was gone. I was muttering "hang on hang on sky!" Sky don't care. Sky is controlled by spinning thing we're standing on. Oh well. This will have to do. #commutelove
  • Another horrid Sunday on the left coast. Can't remember the last time I rode Almond Butter. She's a beast! #rubylove
  • As they both stare out to sea, each dreams of a love once had, now lost.
  • Judge me. i don't care.
  • Freebird in a yellow sea
  • Two lads climbing
  • Once more into the fog we go. #commutelove
  • Company on the hill today. #lucydoingstuff #commutelove
  • Road warrior. #commutelove
  • Olive pointing purposefully and the fog creeps over the Mother Tree and light gets caught by it. #commutelove
  • Well I got further than I normally do up 'three bitches' but it's just too steep. #startschleping #crux #cruxevo #cruxlove (I think they call it three bitches... If not, they should)
  • #pumpkinbutter is trying to hide. #crux #cruxlove
  • A grand old lady takes a stretch.
  • Don't really know where I am. Never been here before. But I'm assuming Monterey Bay down there. #pumpkinbutter #crux #cruxevo
  • On the way down, I stop and admire the other side of that burnt out tree.
  • Santiago is tooooooo cool. Lil Bit is tooooooo hungry. Dolder is tooooo tire-slashy. #californiarulez
  • Olive has a posse. #bodyguards #californiarulez
  • Head cold. Lungs wheezy. Don't care. Whee!
  • Someone hath a cranky crank #commutelove
  • Sure is a different climb when your legs aren't desiccated meat. #commutelove #YourRideYourRules
  • Tall trees. Near top of the climb (false summit) #commutelove
  • Stage 10 #tourdetree It's raining steadily and making the dirt super fun. Later, we will wish the rain stayed like this (we basically canoed down Hazel Dell. It was...intense. Hames road had a river coming down it as we were climbing it. That was fun) Anyway, Tour de Tree is done! Waiting to hear if @msampso3 is home safe. @j_takao has the victory at the tree shot, so look at for that.
  • Stage 9 #tourdetree We all do our loop around the Mother Tree then descend for the last morning stage. Stunning morning. Supposed to be a downpour and winds for Stage 10.
  • Stage 8 of #tourdetree in which Taco develops "burrito boobs" and I get knocked up with a "burrito baby" Thanks AJ's! #commutelove
  • #tourdetree Stage 7: "the best draft in the bunch" runs over a glass shard minefield. #commutelove #lucydoingstuff
  • Now, I don't want to make you feel bad, but the #tourdetree Groundhog Edition has a posse. #commutelove
  • Lolz I like how I gave it no context. This was me mounting the decal to my top tube. Inspiration is everything! #tourdetree
  • Fog rolling in at the Mother Tree. #tourdetree Taco looks like he's about to go down a coal mine. #commutelove
  • "The Wait" The only time someone is not waiting for me on #tourdetree is 5:08am when I'm waiting for @j_takao and our 5:10 start. This would've been a perfect time for a selfie stick but my arm sufficed.
  • #tourdetree says "We're in a fight" That, or I punched him. Or he rides so hard, that's just the weakness leaving his body #commutelove Stage 4 complete! (Or, he just had a nose bleed while riding)
  • One never quite gets used to getting dropped. This little #tourdetree climb to the top of Hazel Dell really rips my knitting #commutelove
  • Two cool cats coming into Capitola #tourdetree #commutelove
  • #tourdetree Stage 1: come at me bro. #cruxlove #commutelove
  • Great turnout on Stage 1 of #tourdetree 6 people at the tree. #commutelove
  • Waiting for Dirt Diesel (brad) to catch up after flatting. #tourdetree #commutelove
  • Wilder Ranch.
  • Afternoon delight. Wilder Ranch, California.  #madewithfaded
  • Four days off the bike means it's Pumpkin time! #lunchride
  • Harvey Bear is putting on a show #lunchride
  • This #lunchride suck-factor is very low
  • I am capable of doing dumb things. Today, I rode from my house to top of Hamilton. The problem becomes obvious when you get to the top. You look across the valley, across San Jose socked in with smoke haze, to the Santa Cruz mountains there on the horizontal and think: "my house is on the other side of that. I am so far from home" (though this is probably half way in the climb it still illustrates the point)
  • There's a road there somewhere
  • Pit stop a mile from home. @j_takao put a food order in for me so I rolled in and ate! And may have ordered a beer...
  • Tank
  • He was a sophisticated cat. He was Top Cat on Campus.
  • "Did ya see the headless seagull?" will be the name of today's ride. Thanks @isaacmerrill
  • I like it here very much. So cozy warm in the woods today.
  • Night flower in headlight #commutelove
  • Hi-wiz tree hugger caught like deer in headlights. #commutelove
  • Oh, hey, matchy matchy. Look at you, all matchy matchy. #pumpkinbutter #fatcyclist (I looked down mid-ride and suddenly noticed. One more orange bottle and the look would be complete. Helmet and gloves would be TOO FAR!) #cruxevo #cruxlove #crux #nisene cc: @eldennelson
  • Yes, I've posted this corner before. No, I don't care. #pumpkinbutter #churchofsaturday #nisene
  • Ride. Breakfast burrito. Beer 30. These guys. (Dolder not depicted) #churchofsaturday
