Saturday Morning Group Ride

6 of us got hall passes on Saturday morning for a nice ride. The weather was perfect, mid 60's when we started at 7AM. Ended up almost 75 by the time we were done. Davis HIll has a group of usual suspects that ride most weekends, but only a couple of them joined DEA and I, but we did have a special guest in Radair. With Radair, DEA and I the SS crew was evenly matching the geared bikes. We rode at a pretty good pace and had to stop a bit to let the group get back together, but it was not a problem except for the bugs, THe skeeters were out in full force.

DEA and I were sorta out front most of the ride, which can and does lead to sometimes getting lost. Well it was no different this morning. We made a right turn onto a trail we had taken lsat year and sorta ended up lost or at least somewhere we didn't know where we were exactly. It was deja vu all over again as we led our group to the same dead end. Oh well. We made it back to the more well travelled trails and spun around those for a bit until the geared bikes headed home and the SS guys went on for some more climbing and some fast singletrack. It was a great way to kick off the long weekend and fun to ride with Radair. Rumor has it there's a night ride tonight and a 6PM group going off south of us tomorrow....

i hate skeeters!

being lost means you get to see things you otherwise wouldn't have seen, which is good!

peace out, yo!

hey w+f

I Like the map and profile. That receiver on the handlebars sure beats the old Garmin duct taped to my helmet.

JJ - send me the track file. thanks
