Tamarancho Mountain Biking Flow Trail

Posted on: August 19th, 2013 by Joe No Comments

Get out your mountain bike, dust off your helmet and head north to mountain biking mecca Marin. I took some time to get to know the newly built Tamarancho Flow trail. What’s a flow trail, you ask? It’s a trail designed so bikers will “flow” downhill with ups and downs that counteract each other and minimize the use of your brakes.

The trail was built in seven months with a whopping 3,000 hours of volunteer work and the organizational prowess of Davey Simon and technical design of Jim Jacobsen. Above all, don’t be intimidated; the flow trail is for all levels. And if nothing else, it’s worth the gorgeous ride into the woods.

Sf Bike Expo 2009

Posted on: November 22nd, 2009 by Joe 2 Comments

The annual SF Bike Expo took place this week at San Francisco’s Cow Palace. A day of cyclo-cross racing, mountain bike dirt jump competition, bike fashion show and many vendors selling their wares made for quite the cycling enthusiast event.

The cyclo-cross course wound around the massive Cow Palace property, up and down hills, through mazes or dirt and even through one of the buildings to give the riders the ultimate variety of terrains.  The mountain bike dirt jump competition, featuring a variety of pro’s, took off from the side of a good sized hill and continued through 3 massive jumps to provide an awesome aerial spectacle. Check out the pics below.
