Loving the Yeti

When I was in college (a really long time ago) I used to mountain bike quite a bit.  Then, I began flirting with road bikes … which eventually led to a full-on love affair with skinny wheels.

For the next 12 years I covered thousands of miles, but all of them via blacktop.  But, every so often I caught myself dreaming about a day when I would once again ride the trails with a huge grin locked across my face, and enjoying every minute.

As we were preparing for life on the road, I sold my road and triathlon bikes, and in the process closed a chapter on an aspect of my life I will always look back upon fondly.

Recently, I bought a new mountain bike (Yeti SB95) and lucky for me our current boondocking spot happens to be about 20 feet from a trailhead.

The downhills are awesome.

  1. I love my Yeti! It has taken me through everything Wisconsin had to offer, from Mexico to Banff on the GMDBR and is holding up in one of the world’s mountain biking mecca’s now that we’re in Squamish.

    Point the truck north of the 49th at some point and let me know when you’re in BC and we’ll ride! Plenty of spectacular places to explore.

    • Chuck – we cannot wait to spend a few months in the PNW with the trailer. Rest assured, our route will bring us across the border into your neck of the woods, whereupon I will gladly have you give me a personalized tour of the trails.
