Mt. Philo

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

I’ve been spending more time on the IF now that I’ve got the brakes and tire selection dialed in for my dirt / pave style of riding. Last Sunday I did a common road loop from Burlington out to Mt. Philo. I usually loop around the ‘mountain’ on dirt and take in portions of the covered bridge loop – but I decided on the way out to climb the road and take in the view. I felt stronger than I thought I would – and surprised myself.


Its a short, but steep climb. ~44 miles round trip. And I felt good pulling into the headwind coming home.

Dawn Patrol

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Fall is here, and with it a change in daylight. I’ve been riding early – in the dark. The Krampus has been getting a thorough workout – bike path, road, single and double track. I have an 8-12 mile loop I can ride, 3 good (short but steep) climbs, can mix in rocky technical riding, and can get a good workout before the kids get up. Today included some trail work – I’ve been climbing over a 4″ tree all week – today I remembered the saw and trimmed it out of the trail.

Pugsley riding after the storm, local skiing.

Winter Arrives, Slowly

A dusting of snow, and really cold temps this morning. 6dF according to the bank thermometer on my way around my road / trail loop. Time to put on the studs.

Low Water

Low water levels in the lake this year. Exploring the disparate stretches of beach on the Pugs.

Couple of snaps from this weekend. First ride in a long long time. My base needs to be thoroughly rebuilt – from the foundation on up. The sign up to the BTV high school trails mocks me.

Lots of downed trees in the Intervale.

Regaining my confidence on the single track after my face mashing experience.

Happy thus far with some ratcheting skewers.

A good morning meditation while on a Pugsley beach ride.
