Good to know about the rattlers. I'm guessing that even if you are riding right, as long as you are moving with some momentum, they are unlikely to successfully strike you. It's such a quick surprise...

Damn, I was looking forward to trying one. About when does it get too windy? Maybe I can make early afternoon.

Do you recommend all of Mesa Grande? Is 76 safe back to Rincon?
