It's time again for one of my favorite types of rides: The Urban Ramble. The Rough Stuff Ramble is a ride evoking the spirit of the Rough Stuff Fellowship, a UK based cycling society dedicated to getting off the beaten path. There’s plenty of “pockets of country” that can be found without leaving the city… Continue reading Reminder: Rough Stuff Ramble is Sunday June 16
Scheduling a ride on Saturday February 16th was possibly not the best idea, as it's the same weekend of Mini Bike Winter (MBW) and its Chariot Wars. It's been a while since I had been to this big Zoobomb related event, so I forgot the mantra of "President's Day Weekend is Mini Bike Winter Weekend"… Continue reading A quick report: Slough Country Ramble, 16 Feb 2019

NOTE: Blog Housekeeping! This post for a ramble I did on August 20, 2014 has sat in my Drafts folder for almost five years! Guess I wanted to add more. But I feel that this one is a pretty good one as is, so it should see the light of day. Also, there's a few… Continue reading From 2014: Rambling ’round the margins in Cathedral Park
It's been a dry few days around these parts. It doesn't rain non-stop all the time in winter here in Cascadia, so there's opportunities for dry rides a lot of the time. But a reliable string of dry sunny days during the wet season, a period where the rain gear is safely abandoned, calls for… Continue reading Seize the January day
