Mountain Biking Tahoe: Haus Von Fat is Phat!! (Oct 10, 2014)


Tahoe is mountain bike (and skiing, climbing, hiking, trail running) heaven (... why don't I live up there?) BTW, for those who haven't been... Haus von Fat is big time... as in the majors. Well done boys.  That place rocks, thanx for hosting us!  

a quick recap of the weekend activities:
Fri: After a short beach time at Kiva Beach, Toro and I rode Hawley Grade to Toads to HvF.
Sat: Barrett, Metres, Hauser, Toro and I did a similar, longer ride.  
Sun: the Metres and the Kuwabaras went up to see the Galbraiths at Sugar Pine Point.  

Kai and Mingie riding a skinny...
at Kiva beach on Fri
Nikko breakdancing
Somewhere on Toads... it almost looks like Toro is on a uni

Toro killing it down the most technical section of Toads... 

Sat... Barrett "the steam roller" rollin' over/through/past boulders like it's his second job...
Sundog!
meanwhile... at the beach... it was bum tanning time.
Metres, making the leaves look pretty... 
a gif from Barrett... this was the most colorful section of the ride.  The fall colors were going off!
Meiss Meadow?

so purty

at Armstrong pass we took a quick break to loosen up before our downhill

...
Upper Corral trail has some fun features... Metres riding granite
And Lower Corral has some big features... here's Toro NOT going for it and hitting the smaller feature.
back at HvF, D was cracking Sierra up...
and vise versa
Ol' Unkle Funkle tweaked his back sitting in his office chair... so he skipped the ride.  But he did some yardwork and rode the uni instead!  Woohoo...
we all stayed outside as there was tension inside... Kimbo's Tigers were losing... and you  need to keep some distance between you and a scary tiger...
Kai showed me around on some of the local trails...
right back to his favorite log ride... which was his train track with a station in the middle.
dinner time!
we all turned into vampires and started feasting...
Nikko was happy to be back at the beach for the 3rd day in a row!  Didn't take any pics, but hung out infront of Hellman's Mansion at Sugar pine Pt.
