GMR pictures! Tuesday's ride

Just thought I'd post 'em her making it easier to view rather than searching thru page after page.

Was cool riding with these people. Very nice. I didn't really like the part when Chimivee and Jason blew me away on the last couple of miles on the way up, but they're still ok!..Tiff was excellent. Looked cool and calm the whole way up. I was trying to hold a good pace while Tiff and Chimivee were cruising up the mtn chit chatting effortlessly. On the way down, Tiff displayed excellent bike handling skills. I'm thinking about having her school one of my female riding partners!..Great job everybody!

Rick, Chimivee, and Tif heading up the mtn. Hope I spelled Chimivee correctly!

BigJohn in the far side of the turn. Only a blur cause he was going too fast!..Chimivee and TIff taking the turn. Two riders heading up in the opposite direction.

Thanx. I tired to get more of the "flying down the hill" shots, but these guys were too fast! Didn't attempt too many "flying up the hill" shots cause I was too busy wiping the tears from my eyes!

She was great on the descent! I was behind her on the final portion of the descent. She was carving the corners like a pro! Hard to believe it was her first time on GMR!

I was late so I did the climb alone, well, except for the guy on a mountain bike I rode with at the bottom until he couldn't keep my awesome 6mph pace anymore. I met the group at the village and they couldn't have been nicer, Mr Beanz even gave me money. I had ridden with Jason before but this was the first time meeting the others. I enjoyed talking to them and wish I would have made the start time so I could have had more time to, maybe at the Bloat ride.
One of us should have taken the camera to get an action shot of Mr Beanz.

Yes, well, you're really going to love the descent from Baldy back down GRR, then back down GMR!
