Happy Monday Peeps. Great weekend here and I hope yours was the same. In this week’s rash: Photos, Bike church & Some Talk of Big George heading our way. Being that yesterday was Superbowl Sunday, I could comment on the game, but that performance spoke for itself. Those few hours were crammed with all the […]
From the world of twitter… Hilarious because it probably hits a little too close to home 🙂 credit to nsmb.com for coming up wit this gem
Hey Peeps. I hope everyone had a killer weekend and got a chance to roll out in this amazing winter weather. Sure, the drought and our hidden Folsom Lake has me as nervous as anyone, but sometimes you’ve gotta make hay while the sun shines. This weekend we managed to do just that. As Bran […]

Admittedly its been a few weeks since the Wildflower and still no write up. What gives?! Well, after a sitting down on more than one occasion to relive and hammer out the recap, I’m officially throwing in the towel. It was a gorgeous day and a fun time with great friends, but quite honestly it was an ordeal.
I hope everyone enjoyed an easter weekend, packed with family, friends and good food. Mine was wonderful and the sunshine and warmth was a welcomed sight. Some tight scheduling pushed back the Folsom Lake Loop to next weekend, but this past saturday we took the opportunity to roll up Malcolm Dixon and Deer Valley Rd. to take part in the Deer Valley Loop.

From there it was all tall spring oak, near florescent fields of green, sharp climbs, and quick descents toward to the fire house in Rescue.
