Tonight at the hole.
« on: March 25, 2008, 09:32:09 PM »
Just a quick thanks to the guys that I rode with tonight. Scoo-Anthem1, Factoreee, Piranha, 41 ants, Crazy White Guy, and Crazy white dad.  It was a beautiful night. Great ride, great company.....All was great except the bee sting on my bottom lip. I am talking a bit like mushmouth, but the benadryl seems to be helping. I will be keeping some of that with me from now on.

Glad to hear you guys had a good ride... I might get to start joining the Tuesday night rides finally, we're not sure if we're going to continue playing in our softball league on Tuesdays... Can't wait to put my new wheels to use!  Thanks again Scott!

Yeah, you and Anthem got me working pretty good. That was the first time I had had to use the big chain ring for any extended period of time while on the trail and you guys still dropped me at the end. It was cool to meet a bunch of you guys(Pirahna, 41ants, and FactorE) for the first real time and I'm already looking forward to next week.

It was a good ride! Still a little fast "out of the box" for my liking, but I'll take it. A 12.7 average is pretty fast in my book. Especially when you   include Heartbreak Ridge into that average. I think we started with 4 or 5 of us, 3 being on hardtails, and wound up with 6 or 7 of us and I think 4 or 5 hardtails! very fast and fun for sure. All those oak tree leaves on the trails made for some scary cornering at high speeds- I know that the rear tire on Gregg's bike and mine also were on the edge of washing out for most of the ride! Later.

By the way,

Is Techno Pig a 1 way trail? I think it was Techno Pig, we ran in to several groups on that trail traveling in the opposite direction and it was a tight squeeze for sure. So who, if anyone was going in the wrong direction? and is it a one way trail?

I've been meaning to make it out for a night ride.  Can you get away without a light now that it is daylight savings?  Figure I probably wouldn't be riding much past 7-7:30.

No lights needed this time of year Alan. Me and Gregg even dropped back in for more as we did a second loop thru Misery and Speedway Fast and Furious like ;D
