Cross country mountain biking in the off season allows me to do something totally different from modeling. Fred Weaver was the guy who hooked me up with this sport when his son Gail worked for Rock Shock. Yesterday I went out for a nice 22 mile ride with my buddy Dave Volpe from work. This past summer we rode together using rode bikes in a small group of guys from Incycle. Nothing is better than doing a 40 mile ride after a work day with a great group of guys.

Two of them made us look like we were fly fishing with the rest being in and out each side of the trail. Along the way we encountered 9 Deer and one Bobcat.

I have been wondering where Joe Nave flies with his local group of guys. He keeps teasing me to have a Man on Man contest over there with him. Could you imagine how hard it would be to get the wife to travel to Hawaii for a glider contest? Mine would be booked with flight and hotels very fast. I bet others would follow! No worries about weather like Arizona has from time to time. How many would enter???
