Santo's Epic, Saturday Oct 11th
« on: September 29, 2008, 09:48:04 PM »
Hey, this date has been tossed around so thought I would see if there is any interest out there. The Santo's epic is a 43 mile ride thru some premier single trak. Most likly start would be at the land bridge allowing for a lunch stop half way. Anybody up for a challenge?

it's good ride. Not many climbs though, pretty flat. The Nayl's section is pretty cool though. Starting at the landbridge trailhead works really well.

I am in on that barring anything unusual. It should be pretty easy to make that a 50 miler.

I would like to go as well, if a carpool option is available let me know.  What do you do for a water drop?

Sounds like a good crew, save me a spot.  What side of town do you live on?
