“Winter time and the livin ain’t so easy.” This year.
I love skiing powder more then almost anything, but this winter it just hasn’t shown up in my world.
So the next thing to do is go to Squamish or Vancouver for some bundled up riding with Wade or whoever else is dying for a ride. This year too much snow there too.
My buddies and I have been so jonesing for some outside activity that we have all gone out and bought some skate ski gear (a cooler version of cross country skiing that is not much cooler) and been trying to get our thrills that way. Dam scary on the down hills and super hard on the ups.
So I was forced to pack up my NEW bike (Rotwild R.E.D. Three and fly down to Laguna Beach to hang out with Willow, Hans Rey and Brian Lopes for some better weather and the chance to get some thrills and hopefully no spill.
Willow and I are staying a stones through from the beach and a couple blocks from the trails, which is really nice because riding from the house is the best thing ever. Just like home.
John Levy, Brian Lopes , Tony the Tiger and me. Willow is still climbing the almost 4000 vertical ft that we shuttled up. Ha.
I have only been here for a week and have already done a bunch of he classic rides. They have had some rain here so the trails are in awesome shape.
We have done 3 rides around Laguna here, the San Juan Tail and today the Joplin trail(almost 5000 ft, or 1500 meters of descending). It was awesome.
I love my R.E.D. Three, it is the perfect all mountain bike for me.
Stay tuned as I haven’t given up on winter yet and I am expecting a new pair of Rossignal S7 powder skis and will get some face shots soon. I check the snow report everyday from here in Laguna. The white room is the best place on earth.
