Great ride ! Great event! Great trails ! Great food ! Great weather ! Have I mentioned that it was frickin' GREAT !!!
My computer logged 51.4 miles. We averaged 10.7 miles per hour, I maxed at 25.8 mph, and had 4.30 minutes of ride time. Total time for the ride was over 6 hours as we had some problems with the Idster as me and the Original Elsrider had to wait a very long time for him at a sag stop and he never showed up. We figured he either bailed or made a wrong turn and got lost. The trails were very well marked but the Idater claims he was looking down at his chain an missed a turn off a service road and continued straight. He made a long loop around and ended up doing an additional 16 miles, ending up with an incredible 67 mile long ride which he averaged the same 10.7 mph. When he finally showed up at the parking lot, he was mad at us for not waiting. Yeah right !! Strong showing for the Idster but what a knucklehead for getting off track! The trails were smooth as a tobaggon run and flowed like cold beer coming from the tap, more and more and more of it. Most of it was big ring and there were some challenging climbs, especialy the power line hill at around the 30 mile mark. Long, long, long and pretty steep. Beautiful place to ride, great for the beginners as the trails are not very technical but they do have some hills so be prepared for the climbs. I wish I was doing the other epic events.
