Yes it was a good ride, too bad we got the wrong map.  I still don't know how a 25miler turned into a 42 though?  Hope you guys have fun at santos tomorrow.

You guys are gonna need the warm up.  Santos was in great shape today, but looks like they got a good bit of rain tonight.  Get your chisels ready to chip the mud off your bikes tomorrow.  Wish I could be there with you guys.  Gotta help the fam out with stuff tomorrow. :(  Oh well, there's always another day.  Have fun and have a safe ride.

Yeah, he is afraid of lightening......and snakes. You were right there Jimmmmmmmbo it rainded alllllnight.

The red trails were very slick, so we decided  to ride to the land bridge and then some, all and all we rode a hair over 28 miles.

Sharky and his buddy Mike, hung in for about 23 miles.....not bad for newbies!  Sharky did manage to turn his front wheel into a taco, but was able to straighten it out enough to ride back. I think the next time week see him out, he will be on a new bike (i'm just guessing).

I saw KristyLeigh out there she seemed to be doing great! RiskyBusiness was out there braving almost 3 hours of driving.  ;)

We met BillT out there by the Vortex. It was good to meet you Bill!

Marcel is looking thinner and thinner every time I see him. Keep it up! :)


All and all a good ride....... ;D ;D ;D

Nice seeing you guys up there.  The call for today was definitely doing the yellows and getting in some mileage, but I brought the wrong bike for that and ended up slip-sliding around the reds with fogged up glasses :(  It was nice being out there at least.

I must've seen you BillT but didn't know it was you.  I was the one with the red IMBP jersey on. 

Gregg/Factore,
I was envious of you for attempting the whole IMBA Epic ride.  I been wanting to do a 50 miler up there but always seem to fall short.  It was to humid today for that anyway.  I was concerned for both you but at same time wish I was going.  Next time you want to try it, give me a shout.

Sharky/Mike,
We waited for you a couple of times.  The group i was guiding was hungry and wanted to get back for some beer and wings at the AL's house.  Sorry to leave you.  Could only ensure you knew how to get back.

SOLO!!! Crazy!!! :o  Much props for attempting to ride solo.  A couple of buddies and I are putting together a little team for the 13 Hours of Santos.  I'm gonna be up there a lot more too.  Maybe we could all meet up there for some much needed rides before the race.

The ride yesterday was great! I am feeling better everytime I get on a bike. I'm sorry to hear about Mike/Sharky's tire... new bike??
Thanks Judy for leading our ride. You were great.
