Good Beer Good Rides


I have been enjoying tasting lots of new local and not so local beers since we moved to the southwest.I would have to say that one of my favorites is Stone brewery out of San Diego. We didn't get Stone back east. I got this IPA the other night after work and enjoyed it from start to finish

We had a great ride on Saturday.I picked up Jay and we met Robert and Anthony and a friend of Roberts named Andy from Albuquerque.We parked down the road from the chamisa parking lot at a trail head that meets up with Sidewinder. We left from the cars and pedaled up Hyde Park Rd. to the chamisa trail. Chamisa to Winsor to Borrego to bear wallow to winsor to chamisa to sidewinder to burn trail and back to car.It was a GREAT ride. I know i keep saying this about the trails out here but it is just incredible riding out here.What is also crazy is i have just hit the tip of the iceberg.There is just so much more to ride.Of course i took my camera and didn't take it on the ride.I did take some pics at the car... hehehee. Jay took a couple shots. No action shots though. Andy took a few shots i don't know if any of his came out.Here are a couple from the car and one Jay took on the Winsor.



Everyone here is saying that the trails up high should be unridable by now. I guess that makes me happy but i wouldn't mind riding my snowboard soon though.Here is a picture of Robert riding Los Alamos a few weeks ago picture by Anthony

It is Thanksgiving this week. This will be our first here in Santa Fe. I hope everyone gives proper thanks.Maybe we could all give thanks to our forefathers for taking this land from the Indians. I guess none of us really own the earth. We like to think we do though.We raped the Indians then we proceeded to rape the land we took from them.Have you seen this walk way that is gonna be at the grand canyon?Is anybody out there thinking about doing the 24 hours of old pueblo? I would love to do a SingleSpeed team.
I saw this today. Man that is a lot.Peace HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Hah! You MD boys didn't get Stone "back east," but us VA boys sure did.

Don't worry, we drank your share, to be sure.

Nice post. Keep it up, man. You're making a lot of us jealous.
