Angel Island Bike loops
by bheliker on Sep 10, 2011
Fort McDowell, California, United States
Mountain biking | 16.7 miles
A quick tour around the Perimeter and Fire roads on Angel Island, both award the rider with amazing views. This is easy biking – Perimeter road is all paved and the Fire road is a well-worn dirt road. Offroad tires are required but you don't need a mountain bike with shocks or anything. Easy day, water and bathrooms exist every few miles and there are many historical landmarks. Drop your bike a...
Waterdog loop
by bheliker on Jul 23, 2011
Belmont, California, United States
Mountain biking | 5.4 miles
Nestled away in a really populated area, it is a nice retreat. Very technical trail, but the elevation profile isn't bad at all. This trip was plagued with falls and injuries – much blood was lost. 
Mt. Tam, East Peak

Ross, California, United States
Mountain biking | 9.8 miles
Great little trail for mountain biking. Non technical but very, very steep. Some bad karma/weariness prevented us from attempting the summit but we'll hit it next time.

Tamarancho Area Loop
by bheliker on Sep 11, 2011
Fairfax, California, United States
Mountain biking | 8.3 miles
A great trail for mountain bikers. Technically challenging but not impossible. Slightly easier than Skeggs or Waterdog – perfect for my level of riding. The hills are rolling, never up or down for too long. This is one of my new favorites (if only it weren't in Marin).

Park at the MonteBello parking area and take the Canyon trail to Bella Vista trail to Montebello road (or park just north and take the road the whole way) to end up at Ridge Vineyards for a nice wine tasting.

El Calafate Coast Tour
by bheliker on Apr 18, 2011
El Calafate, Santa Cruz, Argentina
Mountain biking | 14.3 miles
A day spent in El Calafate, which, truth be told, has little to offer. We made the best of it while waiting for the evening's bus by renting a couple bicycles and touring along the coast (After a steep hill climb just to get our heart rates up...). Pleasant, not worth doing if you can get to Chalten or to the south instead.

Wilder Ranch
by bheliker on Dec 11, 2010
Rapetti (historical), California, United States
Mountain biking | 12.7 miles
Headed out Engelman's loop, them worked our way around some unmapped trails and Old Cabin Trail to Eucalyptus and then to Enchanted. Certainly do Enchanted clockwise: you'll hit the technical parts downhill and the uphill will be solid dirt. Then we started our way back, following Wilder Ridge back (making one wrong turn...) to the parking lot through the ranch. A beautiful day, and a gorgeous park. The mountain biking isn't too technical,...

Great ride. Not too technical, lots of rolling jumps, lots of obstacles and fun stuff but you can always go around. Very fun!!

Monte bello with the MTBCrew

Mountain biking | 12.5 miles
Met up with the MTBCrew for some fun single track and fireroad biking in Monte Bello. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=126022110766000We took it slow and easy. This is always an excellent trip. Lots of shade, lots of sun, lots of downhill, what feels like even more uphill, and gorgeous backcountry.
