I can’t say much about my weekend. Well, I can say that I had a very long ride with….myself. I logged 66.4 miles, a few short of my 70 mile estimate. That’s OK. I road Loop #2 of the San Ysidro Dirty Century (SYDC) and the clockwise loop at White Mesa. It was a good… Read More SYDC – Preride Loop #2
So…You Think I’m Always Joking It is safe to say that I am a self-proclaimed pantomath. (Via Wikipedia, “In theory, a pantomath is not to be confused with a polymath in its less strict sense, much less with the related but very different terms philomath and know-it-all.”) I copyrighted the term ‘Meadow of the Witch’ a while back to… Read More Meadow of the Witch
Winter 2009 / 2010 was a brutal one. I guess it’s still winter in / around Albuquerque – since it snowed 8 inches at my house last night. Anyway, due to the wicked cold and El Nino fueled snowfall I was limited to endless miles in the Albuquerque Foothills. (Check out the info on the… Read More Albuquerque South Foothills: B.P.R Routes
The Single Speed Stress Test is a classic Back of the Pack ride. Why? Because, we never want to do it, and therefore we seldom do it. Actually, I’m starting to ride it more – just because. This data was not generated for you, the B.P.R. fan. It was generated for use as the test… Read More Single Speed Stress Test
Well, 6 inches of snow in a few hours. Nothing like a spring snowstorm. I guess I’ll go skiing tomorrow. Why? Because. Why work when you can ski? The last few days were a bit disappointing. I wasn’t able to pre ride a section of the San Ysidro Dirty Century. 2 thugs are terrorizing the… Read More The Calm before the Storm: The Storm Just Arrived!
Life is good, right now. I have many updates to add to this bitchin’ blog. Until then, check out the links. I have a new version of the North Foothills video. Ok, Ok. In the last blog I asked that all constructive criticism be withheld until I have the opportunity to generate more video. WELL,… Read More New Stuff – VERY IMPORTANT!
What can I say. Data is King, but Video will make you Global. What? Yeah, I’m just full of S*^T. But it’s fun. Last week was a good week on the bike. My goal was 150 miles. But I only logged 113, I think. The weather on Sunday screwed us all. Oh well. This posting… Read More The North Foothills: A New Era for B.P.R.
Well, it has been a good week of bike riding. I am putting in the miles with the hope of being in stellar shape for the San Ysidro Dirty Century (March 27) and Dawn til Dusk (April 7th) . Get it, stellar – like Black Sheep Stellar. Oh wait, I’m a Black Sheep Highlight guy, Tedd and Tim are the… Read More White Mesa = The Mesa of MUDD (like JUDD)
Well, we all know that risks surround us in the daily grind. But the risks that us Back of the Pack racers experience are usually a bit unique. Yesterday Tim and I had a very close call. Some people think that a ‘near miss’ with a 2 ton truck is something to talk about. How… Read More The Risks of Mountain Biking
Yep, I’m confused again. Is it B.P.R or P.B.R? – Posted from my iPhone while chillin’ at Purgatory, the greatest place on Earth Location:Needles,Durango,United States
