Tulia’s quotes

Looking at my old shoes, Tulia says, “your shoes are broken. You should get new ones. You should get rock star ones. They would be so cute on you.”

Tulia’s quotes

Daddy- “Mommy’s cooking, Isn’t that cool?”
Tulia- “Yeah, I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t believe Mommy could cook by herself.”

Morning mountain ride

Went for a predawn patrol at Fremont Older. This park is the closest open space for my area so it gets heavy use on the weekends. That’s why it’s so nice to go early on a weekday. No one around.

The air was cool and still. Although the feel is nice, it’s not quite like being out in Big Basin. You can still hear the drone of cars on one of the three major freeways in the area. Such is metropolis.

Saratoga gap mountain cycling

The last week it has been hovering in the 70′s. Yesterday my dear wife watched the kids for two hours and I got to go for a mountain ride on the full suspension.

Saratoga gap is usually partially closed in the winter due to wet trail conditions but they opened all the trails up the other day due to dry weather.

Singletrack nirvana. After mainly riding cargo and touring bikes lately, it blows my mind how fast I can go downhill on singletrack trails. The Nomad has such a plush setup.

This ride reminded me of the reason I got so into bikes from a young age. Getting out in the wilderness with no one around.
