I was day dreaming about a dramatically different landscape than the PNW just today as rain was falling hard into the green..... this is what I was picturing... very cool.
Would love to trade you some crispy hot dry weather for some of that rain, but just enough to make it cool and tacky.

Went to visit my brother in Tarragona this last weekend and had a couple days of amazing riding and brother time! It was almost 3 years since the last time we rode together.

We had a blast on the super rocky trails of Tarragona and visited a couple towns near of my brother's city.

well to those interested;
i had the day off so went for a ride today on a little 10 mile loop. different from my “usual” trail system, and i actually had a lot of fun and rode well again, so it must just be getting sick of that trail system. now for a mid day beer in the shower....

Variety is the slice of life...

Lately I have been bored with my local loop but found that just taking the hardtail out giving myself 1-2hours of turning up paths I don’t normally take because they aren't that special has actually been fun. Just xc grinders on unfamiliar trails with no real DH quality to them. But its at least mixing it up and keeping the guessing alive. Even doing a familiar route in reverse can be a fresh run if I keep a zero expectation policy in my head.

Yep, the town dates from the XII century and parts of the original walls still exists to this day. Its Reus/Selva del Camp in Spain if anybody is interested.

Super proud of my little dude. 9.2 miles on dirt today, his longest ride to date. Side note: I came into an inheritance and am at a crossroads in my life. 1 year out of a divorce and not wanting the burden of a mortgage on a single income so I decided to buy a mobile home. $450 a month rent controlled space fee will be my total housing cost. You can see the mobile home park below the bluffs in the scenic picture. My back gate will open to free private access to the 300 acre Woodward park. Pump tracks, dirt jumps, bmx race track and xc loops for miles. Going to treat myself to a lavish bike upgrade to the tune of an ext storia for my Bronson.

Awesome ride for your boy ! I dig your streamlining plan too . Sounds great. I have a low mortgage . around 600.00 a month, Im certainly not looking to upgrade my mortgage so I am staying put, but in pretty damn great location, I cant see how younger people or anyone with median income looking to buy a house or paying current rent prices can ever get ahead now a days, cost of living is so high now.
