Can I BE noobier!
You won't have time to read a map. Cycle Gear will have roll chart holders.

You can avoid one NooB mistake if you remember to load the rollchart from the bottom

BBTR Club

Joined The Big Bear Trail Riders Club over the weekend. Good place to meet riders of all levels. They have a breakfast meeting once a month and then break up into different rides for the rest of the day based on skill level and interest. Also a good place to meet people for rides on your own. More info can be found at http://www.bigbeartrailriders.com/ .

No roll chart holder required for this event if you have a GPS. Seems RAZR and I were the only ADV people there yesterday for this event. The event raised over $47,000 for the Paediatric Brain Cancer Foundation. Too bad more people didn't show up and break the $50k mark for a great cause.

Let me say that for a second year, this ride also helped me to contribute to the National Innertube Association with a record four (4) flats in the first 20 miles of the ride. Nails and bolts . So after using all of my tubes and even snagging one from some flat billers I ran across , I had to head back to the vehicle and call it a day as I knew this was not my day for riding, especially with a massive hangover in tow.

BTW, Kalitrailrider isn't a Noob...........................

Seems so. What sucked was having to pass 70-80 people after the first two flat repairs. What sucked more was that I did my last change at the gun range in Lytle Creek canyon after escaping down 3N33. Changing tires and hearing ricocheted bullets whiz by is a bit strange...

So, are you sure it was a nail that punctured your tire?

First one I have no clue what it was. Second two, front and rear at once, a 16d nail front and rear. Last one was a 1/4 lag bolt, that looked like it just came from the bin at Lowes.

Angry hikers pissed off that an organized ride came through?

Dale I will ride with you anytime!!
Any of those rides would be perfect for the Tiger

But... I will be out in Octotillo Wells this coming weekend.

A good friends B-day weekend and we are going to KILL IT!!





Some other time soon for sure...

Haha reminds me of the time TBarstow and I did a Malcolm smith ride out of glen Helen .
We were one of the early ones to roll out. We roll off the dirt from lytle creek near the 138 and stop at the shell station to get gas. As we are fueling some kind lady told us riding the dirt around there was illegal and a fire hazard or some shit... I think we told her you might want to let the 100 guys behind us know as we'll
