Read Back to Insanity, Part 1 here.
Getting our strength and endurance back slowly by riding every weekend, occasionally quickies on weekdays, with the help of fellow Backout Boys, Team Prima teammates, and our friends the QueensRow Boys, Frank and I sometimes feel a single, full loop of the Malipay trail network just doesn’t fulfill the [...]
Evening of Feb. 17, 2012, my phone beeped. “Where are we riding tomorrow?”
That’s the text message I received from Frank, my long-time riding buddy.

I was forced to stop due to the trauma of my bike-jacking at gunpoint experience (I haven’t written about this, [...]

In the early morning silence a metal gate clinks and [...]

Nearing the end of the ride, around 10 A.M. I get a text message from him. Seems like he just woke up. He was blaming not [...]
