A short but intense ride this morning to test out my new tubeless setup. Attention picture heavy! But that's what this thread is about...

Took my hybrid around San Francisco last night. Mostly just an easy sight seeing ride around town.

After a week of negative excesses, bad or to much food and no exercise I opted for the flats and the hybridized mtb. I'm sure I would have struggled a bit in the hills but on the flats today I was stronger than the last time I did this ride. So hills do make you stronger. It was a perfect warm day for riding too.











Setting up for the TDU is well under way in the city centre

I actually thought of you riding in the nice and warm southern hemisphere when I was battling 37 degrees F and a stiff north wind yesterday doing a quick 20 miles on the Fuji Absolute trying to work off some "holiday cheer."

Today a 34km ride in a hilly farm not too far from my house. They have lots of ATV trails which are now closed to motorized vehicles by a state law due to excessive erosion. MTB paradise. Very satisfied with my tubeless Smart Sams.





Walked this section.









Okay, that's beyond hybrid bike territory. Turn around here. The climb up to here is quite managebale just can't continue to the other side of the hill.

The views are worth the effort.

Cool Virginia Beach Oceanfront Boardwalk

Listening to the waves crashing and the lack of tourists made for such a relaxing ride! Itís not often I ride pavement, but this was such a fun ride on my Cannondale Quick 5!

Just bought a Giant FastRoad, I live in Victoria BC and ride the Galloping Goose trail. I made it into town in less than 20 minutes from Saanich which I find is quite fast compared to being stuck in traffic in a car.
