Santos post ride
« on: November 17, 2008, 06:47:21 AM »
Great ride had by all. Everybody but Juicehead went down at least once but luckily nothing serious.  Thanks BenjiBbad for the beer. John Brown was slick first thing in the morning after some light rain. I think I like it better than the vortex. Magic Mtn.  was challenging as I didn't make the climb with my single speed challenge with Chiselchest 32/16 gearing.  We'll have to look at the tape and see who made it further up hill.   ;D  Thanks to Luis for pulling us around on a great ride and loop. Goodriding with everybody. We'll meet for some Boyette/Alafia action some time.

Yes, Great ride! Thanks to everyone for periodically waiting up for me. I hope I didn't slow you're ride down too much. It was one hell of a work out for me.

Dan - Great beer man!

A group of us did the Epic yesterday and stopped to try Magic Mountain on the last leg. A couple of us could get through those rocks about 1/2 way up, but that was it. That has become a tough climb over the summer.

I haven't made the climb up Magic Mountain in my last couple of trips up there either.  The rocks and little washout areas has made the climb more difficult and gives you something to work towards.  Did you guys like how they reworked the backside of Magic Mountain?

Hey Ells,

It was great riding with you at Santos. Hope to ride you again sometime in the near future.

BillT - the back side of Magic Mountain was a surprise. Nice slightly technical fresh cut  downhill. The extended portion of Magic made it be a pretty tuff climb. Juicehead cleaned it with his gears.
Boyette for a post Turkey day ride is def. something to think about. I have a sweet route we could do, 20 miles plus to work off those turkey fixins'.
Tread29 - good ride. Good workout for everybody.

When did they re-do the backside? I was up there a few weeks ago and it didn't seem any different. I can make the front side on my geared bike pretty consistent, even after it changed. But on my SS it is just to much gear now. Last spring I could go right up, it was super smooth back then. I like it better now, it is a good challenge again. ;)

SFG - They redid it within the last 3-4 weeks.  I was up there last weekend with Gregg and noticed for the first time (we went up the backside and down the frontside) and was there 2 weekends prior to that and it wasn't redone so it is pretty new.

Another 6 -7 miles. Tried to stay on blues but rode short sections of reds also  and finished up with Sink hole again. Tough trail when you are at the end of 26 -27 miles. The beer was tasty and perfect for post ride recovery.   ;D

Luis - I just had to drag Kevin and Ryan through there before we called it a day; especially since they found a convenient excuse for skipping it the first time around.

I think it was more like...you found a convient excuse to drop us! JK ;D The slower pace back to the TH was a nice break from Luis' pace!
