Sounds like an awesome ride! I would love to ride in a forest of redwoods! Hopefully i can get to that later this year, im visiting some old friends in Tulare (sp?), they tell me there's some amazing single track in the area, and not to far away i can find the redwoods.
Steve, I have a naked old man story for ya! Sadly, (luckily?) i wasn't there when this happened. Anyhow, one of my good cycling buddies was riding on some local not very well known single track. About 10 miles into the ride he past a group of 3 naked guys, all in there mid-50's or so, he was keeping up his speed when he passed, so he couldn't talk much to the guys, he did manage to get out a few words, "hows in hanging". He didn't even think about what he said until he was over the next ridge.
