    I've been a bad girl! I haven't gone on a mtb ride since my Fleming Meadows ride in April. :o The encounter with the equestrian kind of turned me off to mountain biking for a while and I concentrated...

    I've noticed that trolls tend to have poor grammar. Sometimes their spelling is horrible too. Here's a fine example from MTBR, a mountain biking site. They have an anonymous reputation system, which...

    I carry a camera at all times because you never know what kind of interesting, random stuff you can get pics of. Also, I live near the Sierra Nevada mountains. We have some beautiful scenery here.

    The temps at the lower elevations on Sunday were in the upper 80s to 90, so I decided to go a bit higher for my weekly climbing. I picked a trail I've never been on before, Fleming Meadows. This is...

    Thanks. :) No, I'm not on Strava. I heard it costs $60 a year, and I'm too cheap to pay that! :p
