I'd been hearing about the publicly open section of the Whitehorse Trail for years now, and decided to check it out. While the trail barely qualifies as a rail trail when compared to others in the region, it was still fun to ride with wide tires.

It was very hot that day, but after finally kicking that caffeine habit once and for all, I finally had a fighting chance against heat exhaustion.

Finally got a chance to see the second half of the foothills loop I used to do a lot a few years back. Dropping caffeine made it so much more enjoyable, too.

I finally learned a the hard lesson about my body's reaction to caffeine I'd been needing for a long time.

Looks like Compass is going to start selling cantilever brakes soon.

The Mountain Loop Highway is always a nice ride, even if it's usually rainy up there.

I really should've expected all the blind curves and steep climbs and descents based on the road design and terrain.

It was tons of fun riding out into the mountains! I hope to go on a longer trip like this later this Summer.

It’s important to remember that these steel bikes are true high-performance machines. They have little in common with most production steel bikes available today, which are mid-priced bikes that make little pretense to performance. Made from sturdy tubing, these [production steel] bikes often are very stiff and don’t exhibit the "lively" feel that makes the best bikes perform so well.

Great bikes can be made from many materials. My titanium Firefly and my steel René Herse both feel remarkably similar in how they respond to my pedal strokes – and both are worlds apart from most steel production bikes.
