Okay, I was asked to do it and I know Big John (as well as some or all of his lovely harem) and Vertical Bob will join. How about the rest of you. Any interest? If you like this: Red Box/grassy Hollow Brief Ride Report And Pics then you'll love the ride. Basic details are:
Route: From Red Box (must have adventure pass to park) to Grassy Hollow and back
Elevation Gain: 8800 give or take
Altitude: over 8k feet, so bring caffeine with you!
Lunch: Newcombs Ranch
Difficulty: Not steep, but not an easy ride. Expect 6-8 hours for this ride (especially if we stop for lunch)
RickOCRR has suggested September 22nd. I cannot do that date due to the LA Wheelman Grand Tour Lite the next day, but he may organize the ride. I hope you all will join.
Otherwise, I'm looking into late October (as in October 27th or 28th), and/or the first two weekends in November (should be cooler by then). If interested, please give your date preference and I'll lock a ride date down.
EDIT: Do read this: http://www.bikeforums.net/showpost.php?p=5248036&postcount=52. I must stress that this is not a ride for beginners in any way, shape or form. It is VERY remote up there. Having ridden with most of you wonderful So Cal BFers, I know that each of you know your abilities and comfort zone, but seriously consider the remoteness of this ride before joining. There will be no SAG.
