We'll I'm up, so I guess I'm in...

I'm assuming the 7-11 at the entrance to Little T, right ?

That's the one, just to the left of Osbone.

See you shortly.

Shortly after I got there, Wotevah showed up




A view of Little T from above




On SCD but not quite there yet, we haven't hit dirt. This is Wotevah first outing at the divide.




Wotevah stuck right with me in spite of doing my best ability ability to shake him off.




Led him to the easiest trails I could find



Most trails were easy and we kept it that way





As you can see, the trail was well groomed



And a rider can easily get complacent until he puckers-up!

I've been waiting for this for like an hour




Wotevah was quick in picking up his bike and I was only able to take 1 shot




The rest of the ride was boring, no bikes napping and we ended up having lunch at the usual place.

I turn my back and they sneak out for a ride!! Well I'm heading out Sunday at 7:00 (before the forecasted 100 degrees) for the same route if anyone else is free. I'm heading home by 10 or 11. Trying out my new knee braces! 7AM at the Osborne 7-11 if anyone's interested.

I overdid it last night and, in spite of setting 2 alarms, I slept though them both. I hope you guys had fun.

Now I understand why h8chains waited for me right after nicely grooved, gravel-filled curves! I managed to get through those and dumped the bike in the easiest spot. Oh well.

I also got to witness h8chains' conversational prowess, as he proceeded to insult a fellow rider at Hidden Springs Cafe by telling him "aren't you too old to ride" ? The only way that could've been worse if he'd shown the ADV sign at the same time

Take the Osborne exit on the 210 ( going West from Pasadena area). Right at the bottom of ramp, immediate left at light heading in to Little Tujunga canyon. 7-11 will be to your left a block or so in. Gas in Sunland 2 exits East of there if you need it. Meeting 7AM (ish)

Funny thing happened at Hidden Springs, we met another ADV rider whom I met before. This guy and 2old2ride look identical in all angles. Anyway, I greeted him" Haven't seen you for a while "too old to ride", where have you been? . He was shaken, but very cool and replied, do you mean my handle?

Wotevah, pleasure having you along. Slow is fun too, you know!

Anybody able to sneak out tomorrow afternoon? I want to ride Monday afternoon (4/28).The tentative plan is to be at Jay's around 3pm, ride up Lynx maybe go hit something off SCD (time permitting) and head home.

Time is flexable. PM me if you want in.
