Rocktober Madness

When the creme de la creme begin to topple, it is madness.



Good form Gordy. Hang onto those grips and ride it into the ground. There's still a chance of saving it.

I know the exact spot; we gave it a nickname and named a ride report after it a few years ago.

Saturday's ride involved rock naps.

While waiting at the trail head for Secret Mesa, we came to realize that NM must be on a different time zone.

Just as well. It gave Crash some time to sort out his fork seals.

After getting a late start, the first stop on the agenda was the Coal Wash overlook. Here we learned that someone had a flat in the first 1/2 mile and had returned to the truck to effect repairs.

We did the only sensible thing with an hour on our hands. We napped.



After napping, we bored ourselves by tossing rocks over the edge and timing them to the bottom. Using freshman physics, I determined it was 256 feet to the first ledge.

Nice line choice Gordy. You know I'm going to forward this to Big Al for a full evaluation of your form for next weekend, right?
