This is Apx 9mi up hill, and a nice 9mi down!!!
One of OC's good trails.

There is The B2B next weekend.
But, I may not be able to commit to the entire day, like
I ahd planned. So it is possible we could do STT next weekend.

I think that's a great idea. I'm going tomorrow, but
will plan this ride in a few weeks, and give a week or more notice.

Any takers for Sat AM??

Had a great ride! Sommoner ( Kevin ) showed up , sporting his new
Fat Tire jersey, and we car pooled in his car.
He has a double bike rack, so it worked out great.

I was surprised how easy he made this ride look, seeing
as he said he just started riding recently. ( not sure if he's telling the truth.. )

The weather was perfect, and the trail conditions couldn't be better.
Here are a couple of pics, only took about 8. Was too busy riding to
take a lot of Pictures.

Looks like yall had fun-weather looks excellent in the pics.

I'll plan on doing this again in the next few weeks, and give notice so it can be planned.
It really was a good time.

haha I didn't even see this thread... I need to pay more attention. I have some pics to post as well. It was a really good time riding with Drew. I didn't make it look that easy... remember Drew I rode three days in a row before this so I was kinda primed. It was nice to ride with someone with more experience, you can learn a lot from them. I am about to ride Whiting so when I get back I'll post my pictures.
