Up your way next week

Hey guys, I'll be doing a whirlwind tour of norcal next week. San Ardo on Saturday, Santa Cruz on Sunday (University RR), Yosemite Monday and Tuesday and then Mammoth for the rest of the week. Some of you may remember the ride I did last year from Mammoth to Yosemite; this year I will be reversing it. From the valley, over Tioga pass, then down the 395 to Mammoth. Should be epic.

I may hit up the Lone Pine area climbs (Onion Valley, Horseshoe Meadows, Whitney Portal) on my way back to socal.

Maybe I'll see you at San Ardo. You'll be starting 5 mins ahead of us.

You should try Sonora Pass ( http://www.chainreaction.com/sonora_pass.htm ) if you are heading eastbound!

I started Sonora pass last year until it started dumping on me. I'm not sure if I'm going to be doing any extra driving while I am there this year.

if you want to do a bikeforums+ lunch, my girlfriend will be with me in Santa Cruz. You'd have to wait until I finish or get relegated, but that is probably by 2:30 or shortly after. I'm sure there are a few others from this forum that will be there as well.

That sounds like a good idea

Sounds like a fun trip! Hopefully our cold weather doesn't turn into rain while you're up.

Steve,
I saw you briefly at registration but was in a hurry.
Next time I saw you, looked like your face went through a meat grinder. Someone said your fork broke. I hope you're ok.
Are you cutting your trip short?
Henry
