Where is this Scrambles area you speak of?

The secret scrambles area in the undisclosed location?

I think you have to go to a McBikers round up with Bruno and the Hamburgler and get initiated with the usual sand hill, whoops, powerline climb, mud bogg, swamp ramp, river crossing, pedestrian bridge capacity test, bridge over troubled housing trail, single track in Ponti crack, and man stories about stolen fish.

I guess I'll see you there.

Hey Aaron are you getting a lot of rain? Could Death Valley fill up with water? I know it is below sea level.

Don't know of McBikers but I'm willing to learn the secret handshake as long as I can keep my shirt on.
Are you guys still riding? I usually ride alone but most of my riding lately has been commuting to work.

Here are a couple of the spots I've found...

This one may not accessible anymore.


This one is weird because last time I went there was corn growing everywhere.
Some hilly single track near this that I wouldn't even attempt solo. My bike is a big bitch when she falls down.

Sorry, not for me to say. Bruno or Todd are the keepers of the Holy Information of County Rides.

Last two weekends the weather's been crappy.

It's supposed to get cold so we might have ice to ride on soon.

We'll have a sidecar class for Andy and Don.
