I enjoy anything on two wheels, on or off road, with or without a motor. I record my ride every chance I get. I ride mostly in Northern California, USA but also try to ride other areas/countries whenever I can.  I hope that you will enjoy my videos and my playlists! See you on the roads/trails, real or virtual! Ride on!

For nearly eight decades, Fort Ord played a significant role in U.S. military history. Fort Ord's origins date back to 1917 when the U.S. Army purchased land near Monterey Bay to use as a training ground for field artillery and cavalry troops stationed at the nearby Presidio of Monterey. Fort Ord National Monument is a coastal gem with more than 86 miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails through rolling hills, pockets of chaparral and oak woodlands. You will see a huge diversity of plant life and animals in habitats that include streamside corridors, grasslands, maritime chaparral, oak woodlands and seasonal pools. Fort Ord National Monument is now a host for the annual Sea Otter Classic, one of the largest mountain bike races in the U.S., with approximatively 10,000 participants and 50,000 spectators every year.
