Love the support!

Today we start again on a new set of trails closer to civilization.  Descending down into the Central Valley out of the pines and into the oak.  Here @angry_singlespeeder gets his kicks high in the heart of the sierra.

The crew pausing at the Eldorado Mine off the Western States Trail.  Put in 67 miles and 9700 feet of climbing today.  Getting free and getting dirty.

We’ve completed the first day of #thecommute with 54 miles of trail  and 7200 ft of climbing.  Bikes rocked and now we’re resting up for another huge day tomorrow.  #thecommute @srammtb @girocycling @drop_media @acresupply @wtb @chriskingbuzz @clifbarcompany @mounttam @breadwinnercycles @sportsbasement @transitionbikes #mtb #mountainbiking #sufferfiesta

We are encountering some amazing fall riding.  30 miles deep and just hitting the summit.  Still got a ways to go!

We’ve embarked on an epic ride from Tahoe to SF.  @angry_singlespeeder @mounttam and me ready to head out early this morning.  Let’s do this!! @srammtb @acresupply @girocycling @easton_cycling @chriskingbuzz @mountainhardwear @breadwinnercycles #AllForOne #workhardridehome #TheCommute
This bike is from Breadwinner Cycles and it’s so sick. The Bad Otis! When I pulled the frame out of the box it was like pulling Excalibur from the stone. Building it with the SRAM XX1 and SRAM Roam 60 wheels, RockShox Pike, Chris King headset, Easton 35 Carbon Bars and Haven Stem and WTB Trail Boss Tires, make this all mountain hardtail ready for hundreds of miles of single track. Now I’m really looking forward to starting the trip! #TheCommute#workhardridehome #AllForOne #Eastondreambike @srammtb @girocycling @drop_media @acresupply @wtb @chriskingbuzz @clifbarcompany @mounttam @breadwinnercycles
It was map day here in Truckee as @angry_singlespeeder and I walked through the route from Tahoe to San Francisco.  It took a while and I can only guess how long it will take to ride.                         It’s going to be so sick. Can’t wait!  #thecommute #Tahoe #Truckee
This month we will be setting out to tackle a huge multi-day ride from Lake Tahoe to San Francisco.  Connecting hundreds of miles of single track, traveling light and pedaling hard, we’re going to raise some awareness for a few charities along the way.  Stay tuned for the action.  I’ll be joined by @mounttam and @angry_singlespeeder for the ride.

Morning in the mountains.  Getting ready ready for a rowdy day in the bike.  Good luck to everyone throwing down today.  Bring a jacket.  #mammoth #californiaenduroseries #california #sunrise #landscape #mountainbiking #Mtb

I’ve built up another Nomad and I’ve had time to get up close and personal with the ride. I made some bike porn and wrote a review with Some notes on the Bronson vs. Nomad.
