Any other takers to ride up GMR? I know some have done the the shack ride two weekends ago.
My mission, if you choose to accept it
Long course : UP GMR, regroup at the shack, drop down "lil GMR" at the fork. Left on East fork, There is a campground there with a water source about 1/2 mile from the 1st hairpin. Refill then climb back UP "lil GMR", regroup then head east UP on GRR then drop into the village. Refill water, eat a snack then take UP GRR, and finally down GMR back to the cars. 60 miles and about 6837 ft of climbing and decending goodness http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/200184296
Short Course : UP GMR, regroup at the shack, drop down "lil GMR" at the fork. Left on E Fork to campground for water. Refill then climb back UP "lil GMR" then head West back down GMR to the cars 32 miles and 3488ft of climbing and decending goodness http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/200182022
Mini Course: just ride to the shack and decend back to the cars.
Ride time at 8am from the same meeting spot, Bring 3 bottles and/or camelbak + any food you need. Those that want to start earlier is fine by me, but I'm coming from San Diego and coupled w/ a long drive, a infant baby doesn't exactly let me leave on schedule.
Aaron, if you want to carpool, that's cool w/ me, I can put 2 on the back of the FJ and one inside for your son if he wants to tackle this. We can meet at the park n ride of the 76&15. If you don't want to do the long course, I'll give you the keys and you can SAG part of GRR if you're up for it.
