Tour de Taco


About 5 miles from the taco stop but $300,000 away in terms of median home value (and still a "slum")


James San Jose, not a Purn Star. Guess which bika is faster. Wocka, wocka, wocka


All this angst about the prices of commemorative high end bike parts. How about a Double Bubble aka Tract Homes in Suburban Slums Selling for Near a Mil
1316 W. Hellman Avenue, Alhambra, California


The house above is a block from this:



Eff you Alan Greenspan


This place used to have Huevos Rancheros for 4 bux.


Thanks for reading!

Today's ride had a nice variety. Starting on the east side of the Cascades and heading over a pass to the west side. East side is high desert and the west is lush forest. The top is volcanic mountains. The road is closed to cars right now over the pass so it's always a popular ride.

Stopped in the middle of a 50 mile urban ride to cool off by the waterfall.

It's springtime in Oregon and that means copious fields of crimson clover...this hillside appeared about 50miles into an 70+mile Sunday ride.

Speaking of Oregon, it sure is nice in Portland today. From this morning riding over the Glen Jackson bridge into Portland:

I'm the blackish blob under the wall in the upperish rightish corner, snacking n rehydrating whilst me partner caught up

Were gonna do Jeff Headwall on Mount Jefferson, but forecast cold temps suddenly changed to warm temps the day before... climbing spring rime in above-freezing temps doesn't work - so last minute plan change to Illumination Rock's West Ridge. Temps were a few degrees colder, and the climbing was actually pretty super, for the most part.. still plenty of soft spots, but if you hunted around a bit you found solid ice right where you needed it before you got desperate.

I've climbed the route before (I've also done Jeff Headwall)... but the point was to get my partner, young Clark, up on some legitimate alpine ice, pulling on his tools... he's a pretty strong rock climber, but this was his first time on ice.

We did bail, barely 12' below the summit ridge, due to an essentially unprotectable over-hanging rime bulge... could have burrowed through it, but it would have been another hour burning under a hot sun on the ridge - another hour of snow softening.. and given that our descent meant rappelling into steep, sun-affected snow, time was a luxury we had not.
