Up to mckenzie ridge then down the kings river, from there over to big creek, and not sure about the rest yet. Come on out, should be great weather, and maybe some dust

Wait a minute. Isn't there some sort of story about you and Verplank? I think even your avatar mentions it. If Verplank got the best of, or hell, even tied with, you... We'd be right fucked.

All the same areas we were planning to be in. I don't want to hold y'all up with her Wombat speeds, but we'll be keeping an eye out for you. How long would you be lingering around the Valero? We (she) never seems to be able to make it anywhere at an exact time, but given a ten minute window (and if I tell her 9.45) we might be able to at least say hi.

27E03, that's the one. Starting on page seven in the Sequoia report, you can read the whole story there.

Alright, don't anybody wait around for us. Steaks and beers were too good last night, there's no way we'll get an early enough start to cross paths with you.

Have a good ride!

Are you sure you guys even rode today? I didn't see hardly any signs of roost around corners, burnouts from shifts, nothing to let me know some of the valley's most epic riders were on the road.



Admit it. You guys took the bus didn't you?

Verplank trail...

Next ride anyone? Difficult single track here, bring ropes, block and tackle etc.
Small bikes and camping gear... make a weekend out of it before it gets too hot.



seems easy enough at the start.

Wow, my bike looked good two years ago...there's been alot of wear and tear since then.

whoops, not this again.



fun stuff on the bottom side... cow trail criminal.



Rearsteer dodging the HOLE... it's a ten foot drop into the "hole".
