sunday morning i was riding my mountain bike down railroad grade on tam and a 950 blew by me with a nice drift, brought a huge smile to my face. I'm sure everyone else out there was horrified

My buddy is still a maybe. Any interest from your friends?

Here's a gpx file of where we will stage at Foresthill. (Right-click & save as ...) Let me know if you can not open this; one short track to the staging waypoint.

Yes, weekdays are The BEST(tm)!

I was surprised when I met the girl & boy on trail 2. She was hauling, slammed on the brakes when she saw me, and stopped right beside me. Then fell over. I think she was MORE surprised to meet someone on the trail than I was!

Fun trails, and kinda powdery now. Waiting a full minute since the last rider left was the only way to deal with the dust. The DS ride over to Iowa Hill afterwards was a BLAST. What a sweet road!

Off to Oregon, Washington, & Idaho on Ms.Caponord for the rest of August.

Seeya in September,

This Thursday afternoon at Metcalf? I'll probably get there at 3 or a little later. KTM 690R. There will likely be a few of us there. All experienced riders but we like meeting noobs too.

fun fun

I am retired so I have everyday off during the week to ride DS. What I don't have is other folks to ride with during the week. I'll have to watch this thread to see who may be going to the Sierra during the week. Nothing better than a few days of riding in the mountains. I have a place North/East of Marysville at 2,500ft elevation. Can ride from there or haul to the higher elevations. if anyone would be interested in riding in that area post up.

Thanks for your info. Some Fridays can work for me. Even this Friday actually, but not Thursday also.

Hmmm ... let me re-phrase my announcement to a request ...

Anyone wanna ride Carnegie Thursday OR Friday this week?

I prefer to arrive 9:30AM or so. Ride my ~20-mile training loop before & after lunch. Leave 2-3pm. I (or we) sometimes DS from Concord via Marsh Creek, Morgan Territory, Tesla, & Corral Hollow. Same times.
