Recently, a really good friend of mine Shawn and I rode a back way to Bear Mountain. I first met Shawn through the messenger community in 04' at the Westside Invite in Portland. He was the first person I met that was a track bike messenger and was branching out into road racing . I ran into him a couple of times in SF and lost touch. A couple of years back my friend Gina that owns King Kog told me she and Shawn were together. Two years later they have a beautiful baby girl Talula. I've been giving a hand along with others during the new addition of the family and it's been great spending time both on and off the bike.
Shawn has been really motivating and pushing me to ride more, we ride 2-3 times a week. This ride was challenging but beautiful like most things worth while.
We descended down at speeds 40-50 mph staring at this view half way down.
I get this look a lot riding with Shawn, checking to see if I'm still there, lately I've been there and able to hang compared to when we first started to ride together. This guy is fast as hell and a VERY good climber. Come ride with us!
I've been posting way to many photos of my bikes and too little of the rides I've been doing on them, this is going to change. Expect lots of photos of bikes and snow.
