Many Thanks

As 2010 waits in the wings and 2009 gets ready to "ride some single track into the sunset", I realized that I really need to take a few minutes and give a big ole' THANK YOU to everyone that made Mighty Mobile a success this year.

I know you have choices when it comes to getting your bike fixed in Tahoe and for all of you that picked up the phone and dialed my number for help... I can't thank you enough.

Have a great winter Tahoe! See you in the spring.

Trails update

Riding in and around the greater Nevada City area yesterday (Sunday Dec 20th) proved to work out quit well. It looks like you could ride all the way up to Whitecloud Campground but would probably encounter snow further up the trail.

We did a combo of trails starting from town and riding as high as Conservancy Camp Rd. Trial conditions actually proved to be quit good with no snow and very little mud even on north facing trails... until it starter to rain towards the end of our ride.

I would assume that South Yuba, Round Mountain and Bullards Bar trails are all GTG (Good To Go) if you're looking to fill a void in your riding.

dreams

been dreaming lately. bikes mostly.

in the first one, it starts with me juuuust off the back of the lead group on day three of a multi day stage race. i don't know where we were, but safe to say that i was doing a fair deal of suffering trying to latch back on to the group. my success, or lack thereof, of catching the those guys was cut short by the scraping and whirring of the town of truckee's gigantic snow removal equipment eating away at the shoulder high snow bank that boarders our street in front of the house.

the next night would bring a new adventure. i'm traveling with a small group. ryan, tomi, buck.... all good friends, all good strong riders. we're nearing the end of day one of a two day epic. we ride various narrow footpaths and alley ways as we negotiate our way through a small village where our housing for the night awaits. where are we???... hell if i know, but it's neat. really neat. if i ever find this place... i'm moving! trying to explain this place wouldn't do it any justice. it's one of those "you have to see it" kind of places. we ride single track to within' inches of our accommodations for the night. it's a small bungalow style place surrounded by strategically placed shade trees sitting along a tiny creek that meanders through the town. we're glad to see that the fridge is stocked with some ice cold beers and waste no time celebrating the success of day one. i'm not sure how day two went. this dream ends with bikes and gear strewn about the deck and four dirty riders in lounge chairs with beers in our hands and smiles on our faces. much better than last nights suffer fest.

what's all this mean? got me, but i think that maybe i'll go riding today.

change of seasons

I learned last week that my readership is up to a whopping 7 people (Thanx Jeff!) and figured I'd better post at least little something to keep ya'll amused, entertained or just help to fill your day of surfing the web while at work.

For the latest riding conditions, click here. The last precip we got came in the form of snow and made its presents felt all the way into the depths of Sacramento! One "somewhat reliable source" was reporting 6-8" of the white stuff in Auburn!! Don't kill the messenger, but it just might be time to pack the bikes away..... at least for a little while.

On the flipside, the skiing is ON! Scary coverage, but plenty available to the cautious skier. Seriously, be careful out there boys and girls. I've been out sliding around the past three days and can tell you that if you're one of those "I don't wanna scratch my skis" kind of people, you're a storm or two away from getting after it. On the other hand, if you're not afraid to grab a P-tex candle and do a little base repair (or you work in a ski shop) there are goods to be had. Squaw has a superfragilisticexpialidociously small amount of terrain open for the time being, but with the current weather that's being forecast (snow Thurs night thru Sat) things will be opening up at the speed of an apre' ride 6 pack. Backcountry conditions on Mt Rose were thin, but there are turns to be had as of Wed the 9th. Again, be careful out there. I think most of us encountered at least a couple of rocks each.

Whaddayagonnado???

I know the skiing die hards will scoff at this post, but the skiing conditions right now are about as much fun as riding a downhill bike on a century ride. People, now's the time when you should be taking advantage of the riding in the foothills with warmer temps and trail conditions that we dream of having all summer long.

For mountain biking, look no further than this website for proper guidance. It will give you plenty of options to keep you busy until the snow gets here for real. I stumbled across this site 9 years ago and it's kept me busy ever since. The Nevada City area is probably my favorite. Ride the Pioneer Trail above Whitecloud campground for the best stuff. Careful with snow levels, it's about 4,500ft on this section of the trail, so you might get skunked. As of this post, things are a go all along the ridge.

Got a hankerin' to get out the road bike? Then you simply must check out the Sacramento bikeway. Don't blow this off as another cluttered bike path full of baby strollers and clueless people in your way. You can actually do a metric century down there with NO CARS for the entire day and I know you think I'm crazy, but people actually DO walk on the left and ride on the right... just like you wish they'd do on the path in Tahoe City. Think of it as single track for your road bike. Try this for maps.
