I did my first "Low Key Hill Climb" this weekend, up Alba road, which is an insane climb I'd heard about and wanted to try. It was insane.

LKHC is a volunteer race, where they time riders up the hill and rank them. I am so so slow by the standards of this group (many of whom race on actual teams). Of the 72 racers today, I was 68th. I barely beat the time of the two runners. But it was still a fun day out, and these photos of me struggling across the finish line (taken by coworker Scott Byer) are pretty amusing.

I went up to Tahoe this past weekend planning to do some biking at altitude, but had an unexpected snow day. So I went skiing at Squaw on Saturday, and then went biking on Sunday going up 431 to the Mt. Rose summit (8900 feet!) ( http://www.strava.com/activities/293372499) which led to some stunning views of Lake Tahoe.

While I was in Albuquerque, I took a balloon ride with Rainbow Ryders: www.rainbowryders.com/hot-air-balloon-rides-albuquerque/

It was my first balloon ride and quite an experience!

I took the AIARE Level 1 Avalanche Course with the Outdoor Adventure Club (led by +Richard Bothwell) this weekend, and it was excellent. Lots of great material, and now I feel more confident in going on backcountry skiing tours. Plus, we explored a lot of the beautiful Lassen National Park!

The official Death Ride photos from westworldimages.com were finally released, and this was a pretty excellent shot as I reached the top of the second pass (east side of Monitor Pass).

Pictures from my last two weekends of biking:
May 9-10: Bike camping in Point Reyes. I started in SF, and biked with a friend to Glen Camp in Point Reyes, camped for the night and biked back: http://www.strava.com/athletes/3760855#interval?interval=201519&interval_type=week&chart_type=miles&year_offset=0

May 16: Biking from Healdsburg, I did a 79 mile loop, including the beautiful but remote Geysers Road, and an out-and-back up Pine Flats Road. Also, I highly highly recommend the Jimtown store on 128. AMAZING! (I might be biased because I had lunch there after biking 55 miles). http://www.strava.com/activities/305889993

But you were out there! That's what counts. And with your native fitness (based on how you kicked my ass going uphill on skis), you'll get faster quickly if you want to.

Last weekend, I took an intro to backcountry skiing course with the Outdoor Adventure Club (https://outdooradventureclub.com/events/#!event/2014/12/20/intro-to-backcountry-snowboarding-or-skiing-weekend-in-lassen-national-park-12-20-21). Great experience - I had bought the equipment (skins, AT bindings, beacon, probe, shovel, backpack) at end-of-season sales last spring but hadn't used it, so it was great to have expert guides like Richard and Max to show me how to use all the gear and a group to go with. We had fun hanging out in the house, and out on the snow. Good times!

The rustic lounge is the best restaurant experience we have found in the North Tahoe area.

It's an okay place for cocktails, but the food isn't that great for how expensive it is.

Dave was a great real estate agent for us. Our search for a Tahoe house took over a year, and we went out looking at houses numerous times together. He learned what we were looking for, always found us houses that fit our criteria and in our price range, and was unfailingly helpful and cheerful throughout the process. In fact, he sent us a listing with the comment "I think this is the house you're looking for!", and he was totally right - with his help, we put an aggressive offer on the house, and were in contract in 2 days, and have been extremely happy with it. Thanks, Dave!

Best place to go when shopping for a BBQ: Nuremberg bratwurst, Santa Maria tri tip, and a couple other sausages, and it's a party!
