Man did I have good bit of mid-week stoke in Alpine on Wednesday. With temps in the mid-70s and sunny skys in December, a MTBer’s life in San Diego does not have to suck at all. The pleasant temp made for a really low sufferage climb that was one of the best I have had in quite some time.
I forgot to take pictures, but views were fantastic from the top. Point Loma and Coronado Islands were all easily seen. After chilling at the top it was time to play. I have not been riding rocky technical bits of this size and style for a while so I was keeping the bike on the ground for the most part. I was feeling pretty good on the whole “Mojo” front as well as having some “Monkey Motion” going with the various rock moves.

Brian did not have the luxury of an early start like Steve and I had so he caught up to us later in the ride. After some more sessioning in the rocks it was time to start thinking about the how much time was left in the day. After catching a couple pictures with the evening light, we released the hounds and had a good run to the bottom. Afterwards it was time for some tasty refreshments at the Alpine Beer Company. Good times.
