• Hayward Plunge

    Just when I thought all the local riding locations consisted of lame fireroads, I decided to give one more trail a shot, and found a gem. I rode it mainly because it was so close to where I live. People call it the Hayward Plunge, named after the rather creepy looking indoor swimming pool at […]

    I’m sitting here at Charlotte/Douglas International waiting for a connecting flight… and the internet here is fast as hell – so I figured I’d update this. This Monday, I went back over to Coyote Hills, this time for some mountain biking. There was always this dirt path that I wanted to go on before with […]

    I’ll begin with a ride I did on Wednesday with this guy at the Pleasanton Ridge… but that ride sucked. I wanted to try out the Santa Cruz, and the Ridge was local; however, the riding consisted of almost entirely boring fire road that climbed and climbed. Once near the top, there were a few […]

    Here’s new development in regards to my cycling department… I ended up putting the Tarmac on eBay and selling it. The main reason why I sold the bicycle is because I got bored of road cycling. After being involved with it for 3 years or so now, and basically doing only road that entire time, […]

  • Palomares + Coyote Hills VIII

    Yesterday, I ended up joining a group motorcycle ride in the morning. These particular rides are really organized for what they are, lead guy even had a spreadsheet of all attendees and there were leads & sweeps. BUT, this ride definitely made me lose interest in a large group ride. It’s a lot different when […]

  • Coyote Hills VII + Palomares

    I meant to post this a while ago… I forgot when this even was, about a week and a half ago I believe. This was a good day of riding. Another Coyote Hills loop as the usual in the morning-afternoon. Then, towards the evening, I went on a cruise with the Husqvarna through Palomares.

    The pattern seems to be ride once, then wait a couple of weeks… so much for consistency. Anyway, I was able to get on the Tarmac again this Wednesday. It was a hot 90 degrees that day, but didn’t feel too bad once you got moving. Did another Coyote Hills loop, the pond area from […]

    I let myself go the past couple of weeks, just been caught up in things and haven’t put the effort into riding. The weather was nice today, so I hit up my neighbor, and sure enough, he was down. So far I’ve mainly just been riding with my neighbor since he’s easiest to meet up […]

    It’s been a while since I had a chance to get on my bicycle, it’d be a lot better if I could keep it consistent. Woke up this morning and rode out another usual, around the back of Coyote Hills and then to the boat and back. While taking a break at the park, I […]

  • Livermore Bound

    I went on a ride this afternoon with my neighbor. When we started out, we didn’t really have any general direction, but ultimately ended up in Livermore. Our first route went through Niles Canyon, parts of Palomares, back to Niles Canyon, Foothill road, into Pleasanton, through some Vineyards in Livermore, up and down 84, a […]

    Woke up this morning and went to Coyote Hills again. It was windy yesterday night, and consistently throughout today as well. Met a fair amount of headwind riding there, but that meant the other direction was super easy. I did a loop around the back again, then decided to find something new. There was another […]

  • Coyote Hills Redux

    The other day, I went on another ride to Coyote Hills. Very cool trail that goes around the back of a hill, and gives you a full view of the bay. I got there around 10am so it wasn’t too populated, but those stupid ground squirrels were everywhere. One jumped out of a bush within […]
