From what I've gathered, your normal is pretty damn nice. Good for you, Norton!

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts, But again we dodged the bullet. I was talking to a dear friend of mind the other day, who did some shifts during the fire. We both recognize the fuel load here in the coastal hills is pretty severe with onset of sudden oak death. I've managed to keep my land relatively clear of the dead trees, but if you look around, there are thousands of ghost trees in the hills. I know time is running out for us here on the north coast.

So sad, I read an article recently that said almost all the trees in California are dying. Mainly the Oaks but also many other species.

I was hoping for some good hours on the bike this past weekend up in SLO but it was a busy time so I was only able to sneak in a quickie on the Wednesday Trail. My video camera battery was dead so I don't have any footage to share. :(

I'm just hoping that the forest on Mt. Laguna and Mt. Palomar outlast me. It could be a photo finish, at this rate.

Didn't ride as I didn't have time after, but went to a trail dedication. We got state grant money to get the last build phase in the park started. Governor made the program, so for the first section of trail they made a deal of it. I was handed scissors to cut the tape but passed them off for someone more photogenic. Ended up in the pics anyway, sadly.
Fun trail, though.

I did an adventure ride yesterday in the forest with a couple of buds yesterday. We found an area with some Fall colors. There isn't too much of that out here CaliPORNia.

16 miles

Found the time this morning. Spending so much time on the little vintage 20s it felt like mounting a horse getting on the flux

I blame kronk. Was hoping to hit a few spots with just a dusting like the pics in his link but no joy. Still felt good to get out in some hills. My local night trails are flat af. Not a bad thing for winter riding but boring

Like March here. Got hit by a early dump. Heavy wet stuff then bitter cold. All post holed and icy.
But hey no crowds! :D

You can learn to appreciate the cold.
All the muppets are sitting at home, fearing the climate.
We dress for it, the comfort level remains more or less the same, but we pretty much get the whole world to ourselves.
We rarely go bike touring in the summer, as all the good places are full of turists that has no clue, and muppets that can't grasp the fact that they're not the only ones out there.
Our two major annual tours are in March and October, where it's still cold enough to keep the clowns at bay.

Magura :D

I was literally the only bike at the bike park. Some days I really don’t feel like getting out into it. Doesn’t take long to shake it

Makes me wonder if aluminum, carbon or titanium is real. Have we been duped all these years?

Aluminum is the only frame material that's real.
All other frame materials, are just illusions.

Not so sir. Flux is the last of the aluminum Turners. Might say the last of the real Turners

My mistake.
So you should be able to tell the incredible difference by yourself.
