we like bikes!
Friday, May 20

Wed. night ride....... a 4-B's ride. bikes..beer...bonfire....boxes? Welp i forgot the actual fourth B, but oh well. Damn good ride even though the singletrack portion was rained out. The ride starts with an 11 mile forest service climb... it was at a fast pace from the get go, and once you find your own comfortable pace the better. Anyway the climb took a little over an hour and once we got to the top of the ridge we were met with very dark grey skies and the rain started falling...temperature started dropping too and on went the LS jersey, the raincoat, and knee warmers. Initially our plan was to drop straight down into this beautiful little rock-infested drainage and ride the trail back out. But with the rain and all...we knew the rocks would be slip-pery and wisely we went back down the way we came up. Tough call.....because after an hours worth of climbing it's always nice to be rewarded with some yummie singletrack. oh well--- there is always next time...... we followed the ride up with the usual post-ride refreshments.
