Greetings and salutations. Another nice week has passed here in Santa Fe. It is getting hot hot hot here. The Forrest is still open here which is very nice. Jay and I went for a ride up Chamiza and down burn yesterday but this time we went down the trail that runs along what I think is Tesuque creek. It was nice. soon we went right and went up from the creek and came to a group of equestrians and they promptly told us we did not belong on these PRIVATE trails owned by Bishops Lodge. Does anyone know where the private land there starts? So we turned around and went back down to the creek trail and came out at Bishops Lodge road. Some nice new trails were ridden so it was nice. We were hoping to magically find trail that connected to the Dale Ball North system. That would be fun to be able to connect all that. Here are the GPS stats on it.
I raced this past Sunday at La Tierra Torture It was a very good time. A couple hundred racers showed up to race and have some fun. I think in SingleSpeed group there was around 15 men and 4 women. The results should be posted on The website I took a couple pictures from post race. I also have a few pics from a sweet Atalaya ride We did the other day that Anthony took.

I wonder if Anthony knew he was about to go over the bars?

Ohh yeaa and this happened to my Time pedal. First time it has happened to me.
What is in your audio player? I actually bought the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album Stadium Arcadium. I am enjoying it.
