Another fine day at BC

Met up with Michael for a jaunt at one of my favorite places.
The climb up sandywash was about %70 ride %30 percent hike. But i just like this climb. as we discussed on the way up something about bc just grabs you and is always a treat. yah its 45min from home but growing up just miles away it always feels minutes away. and feels like home.

opted to hit the BD trail up to the high point, michael hadn't seen it and i figured it would be mostly rideable. meh, again about 70/ 30 but that 70 turned into 98 on the way down!
I believe this is one of my favorite vantage points up here. along with chair-rocks.

pretty nice day to be outside as the temps pushed 50+ on our way down and the fluff turned to spring like snow and made for some creative moves to keep ones bicycle upright.

Sully was a little peeved when i had to take my jacket

But he held down the office at home and took care of paperwork for me!

No didn't go on a bender, more on that title in a few. Finally got to hit up the Ken caryl trails with a local and wow, that close and that much good stuff. I may have to become a "part time" resident of one of my customers.
Jeremy, Greg and I opted out of bc for a more local ride and glad we did! its always fun to ride new (to me) trails and there is some good climbing back there! and fun terrain. lots more to explore! some time

stole these two pics from Jeremy:

Nice !

Cody and i snuck away to Loveland for a day. workin nights isnt so bad as it frees up the days. Wind blows a bit at the top of the second highest chairlift in North America.

His second time on a snowboard and he was rippin it! my second day on snow as well and my tele turns were more like a slight raised heel and then a normal alpine turn. thats the nice thing about tele if you have to you can just make alpine turns. I was super sore from the day before when amber and i took moots on a hike at 3 sisters that turned into a trail run which was no problem for them but for my non running legs, more recovery time needed and less than 24 hrs was not enough.
oh well, still managed 15 runs made a handfull of decent turns and showed cody i can still grab some pretty big air for a 42 yr old.

Here is where Bender comes in- a little pond hockey tournament on new years eve at evergreen lake. There was a one day tournament for the younger ones. 8 & 9th is an adult tournament. So cody was one of the 5 "Benders" played 3 games in single digit temps and won all 3. That put them in the championship game and they brought home the 1st place hardware. Which was a stick signed by this years avs. well stick was awarded to one of our players who showed the best sportsmanship. so as in all pond hockey bragging rights are as good as any trophy.

They also do a skate the lake night for new years which we have done in the past and its a pretty good time. Yes our sweet 16 made it up with us as well. she is growing up and in the need of some wheels very soon. permit check- driving around now check- nervous dad check!
