Over the weekend I had the privileged to do some great riding and hanging out with some fantastic friends. We started off at Aliso Woods where my buddy Dale Weber who happens to be a personal trainer took us through various parts of the park.
We started our ride by dropping into 5 Oaks, up Cholla, down Stairsteps, up Willow, down T&A and we hiked back up Stair Steps…ya it sounds quite a bit of riding, well its because it is! Took us nearly 3 hours to do all that and check this out, Dale said, “this same route, I do as my normal trail ride…” Wait did I hear him right? NORMAL TRAIL RIDE? No friggin’ way! The route we did is something a person should only do every few months or train for. Geez, but Mr. (Dale) Fitness does it on a weekly basis. I’m sure there are a ton of folks that ride that much through out the week, but for this soft mountain biker, that was something I considered EPIC!!!
Then on Sunday we had the MtnBikeRiders.com Christmas Party. This was the only photo we have of it because we were too busy carb-loading for the next work day in the office. For our White Elephant Gift Exchange we brought drinks for presents. All I know is someone made off with a sweet can of “Beer-30” beer…lucky
To top it off, I came into the office and found this mural of sorts that my co-worker painted on after I left on Friday. He’s supposed to paint the walls and figured he’ll have a bit of fun before covering it up. I told him just to leave it alone haha.
