Thanks Jruss, but we were trying to keep his name a secret until he was born. Now he'll really have to step it up and be born before his name becomes an internet sensation.

The good folks at a bike shop in Madrid are watching it for us while we ride.

No way GW. When it comes to running, I'd rather watch paint dry. Besides, I need to protect my knees so I can still wade in big rivers when I'm in my 60s.

Taco,I empathize with your situation and while I’m clearly not an expert on the subject, I think it goes something like this:The likelihood of causing your wheel to resemble a fresh-cooked tortilla increases with every additional impact to that wheel. Therefore, the best way to reduce that risk is to simultaneously pull up with both hands and feet as you approach a rock garden. This should cause both wheels to become airborne, allowing you to sail gingerly over the rocks, landing safely (in theory) on the other side. This method reduces the quantity of impacts to each wheel to exactly one, dramatically reducing your likelihood of taking la caminata de la vergüenza. Before you try this, I suggest you up your courage by drinking a can of Whoop Ass.
