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
Yes, just a reminder that yes, the Slough Country Ramble is still on! I would have only considered cancelling if there was snow/ice, or the forecast called for pouring rain all day. Tomorrow's forecast calls for showers, so be prepared for some wet. We meet tomorrow, Saturday February 16 at 11 AM at Cafe Eleven,… Continue reading Slough Country Ramble: Still on!

We'll be meeting on Saturday February 16 at 11 AM at… Continue reading Slough Country Ramble, 16 Feb 2018

Heck, I don't think I got on my bike for a good week before Friday the 21st. So, a ride of some sort… Continue reading A post-solstice Slough Ramble: 22 Dec 2018
Things have been a little stressful here at the Urban Adventure League HQ. At work, we got a new reservation system that I'm still trying to figure out. In my personal life, I have a lot of projects to tackle. Like most fully employed "regular job" folks, I get two days off a week, typically… Continue reading Trying to be in the moment: A ramble to Kelley Point Park, 12 Feb 2018
It's been a quiet week around here. That's because I've been sick. I started feeling ill on Tuesday the 9th. It was the classic flu, with all its classic symptoms like headache, aches, cough, congestion, fever, nausea. I spent a few days primarily in bed, not necessarily sleeping, but in that sickly in between state,… Continue reading Riding Back Towards Wellness
Last Thursday (November 23) was Thanksgiving in America. For most, a four day weekend, a time to travel home and/or eat lots of food. For others, the start of the holiday shopping season. It's become a big thing over the past couple years to buck the whole waiting-in-line at midnight for doorbusters by #optoutside. Y'know,… Continue reading An optin’ outside, givin’ thanks kinda ride: Mon 27 Nov
