Up until recent, I had not heard of this small country of Andorra, which is located in the Pyrenees alps, a mountainous region between France and Spain. However my amazing wife organized a mountain biking birthday trip and scheduled some time to hang out in Andorra.
Andorra is a country…
I recently had the pleasure of mountain biking at the bike park in Les Gets, France. However I found the information online wasn’t the most clear, so this is a quick summary to hopefully add some additional clarity.
Les Gets vs. Morzine vs. Portes du Soleil
Portes du Soleil is a…
Well the cooler season is here in California, and depending on the time of day, the temperature in winter riding can be in the 30s to the mid 50s.
So I have my setup for fall weather, hot weather, and extreme cold weather… but 45-55 is a range I…
The gang was recently able to hit up the Northstar bike in Lake Tahoe. We went on a Thursday thinking it would be empty, but on the contrary completely packed. With only one lift running, and social distancing, it resulted in very long lines. But good fun nonetheless!

If you’re ever in the area I highly recommend it!
I’ve had this helmet for a few years now and thought I’d write a review of it.
Good deal for the money.
Tons of graphics variety.
Uses a buckle instead of a d-loop.
At 1000+ grams, it’s kind of heavy. Definitely feel it in the neck after a day…
