Mid Winter Jicker




   Back in November on Thanksgiving day I had the pleasure to ride the Dale Ball trails with Mike from work and Mark and Matt and his friend Chris .It was a Really fun ride before heading down to Albuquerque for Thanksgiving dinner and visiting with family. We met at Mikes pad up on Acequia Madre and road from there. Good times.

Always a sweet spot for a regroup and a headset adjustment


   A couple weeks later I had an enjoyable ride with Mark and Robert at the Galisteo Preserve Trails. They have added some signage and trail signs at each trail juncture which is nice. Also on the trail map they show some future trails that they are adding. Here is a link to a pdf you can download and print of the trail network and future trails.

   While we were in San Francisco over the holidays I of course had to score some Blue Bottle Coffee



   The Blue Bottle we hit is the one on Linden. You can tell when you go there they they have full mastery of the art of Espresso and the love.



On Linden. True Love



   Then into 2010 We went. The first ride I got in was at White Mesa with Anthony. We decided upon White MEsa for the start to our 2010 riding season. Weather was great and we got a nice 15 mile ride in by doing the normal clockwise loop starting on the dragons spine and then taking the center line down and then coming back up the dragons spine.

this is one of the bigger climbs at White Mesa. Particularly tough with ice at the top part of the climb

   Just had surgery on my shoulder yesterday. Hurting pretty bad. There was a good bit of damage in there he said. All went well though with the surgery. Gonna be off the bike for 4-6 weeks. : (
