We definitely missed you, but we had a great ride. I recall some of the trails from 25 years ago, but we didn't go that far back into the hills back then. Everybody came back in one piece for the most part. If you like ups and downs and challenging terrain, this is a good spot. Rode pretty much to Jawbone and back, about 60 or so miles. These guys kept a pretty rapid pace, too. I, on the other hand, couldn't seem to keep it on the trail at times. I had my damping set up for whoops and hi speed stuff, but the ride went through quite a bit of rocky terrain. I adjusted a little and it helped. Thanks to Dan L for the invite.
If you are interested, we have a club enduro this weekend and then again on May 4,5. Send me an email if you are interested and I'll get you some directions. Cheers!

Confirmed: Ron is way out-of-shape. I am still sore as heck, but it feels good to be back on the bike. I felt bad being the guy everyone was waiting for. To make matters worse, I took a digger nine miles in and tweaked the front brake rotor and smacked my shoulder pretty good. Dan and company came to my aid and straightened it out enough for the wheel to spin, but for the remainder of the day I had no front brake. This made going downhill very interesting.
I had a blast, got to meet my neighbor Dan from HB, and was reunited with some very nice people. Thanks to Danny and friends!

The invite for this weekend is for you as well. Let me know if you are interested in an easy 50-60 miler.
