The ride is 100 miles. I would think it would take 4 hrs on the conservative side.

If we leave early we could be back by 8:30 or 9:00.

This trail was easier for me than Sheeps Bride, because the road did not seem as slippery. The dirt is a lot different. There is not as many sections of the decomposed granite, so my Shinko 705's gripped better.

All set. New rear tire on the bike, I'll break it in tonight and make sure it's keeping pressure and not likely to fly off mid-trail or anything.

See you tomorrow.

If this picture posts...This was the 4 peaks ride from this morning. 120 miles round trip. WantToRideMoar and I met in mesa and we joined up with Rickcool72 at the top of 4 peaks.

I think it rained a little last night, because the dust was almost nonexistent. We had a really good time.

Is there a magic geni that I need to pay off for the pictures to work. Will someone link me to a thread, so I can figure this out?

Here is the link to the pics of our ride.

Here is the main "how to post an image" thread....

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=919

I use Smugmug not Flicker so i'm a bit stuck on giving you specifics for your set up, but it basically has to host the photo off site....get a URL link from your picture host site, copy the URL, hit the yellow box w/the mountainsi n the tool bar above the text box on the reply screen, paste your URL into that box and hit okay....if you're doing all that already make sure you aren't accidently leaving a double http:// in the stream, i did that a few times....the link photo (yellow mountain) box puts a http:// in the box but when I cut the URL from my photo host it has one in it too....now I just paste over the one in the short cut.....it could work both ways i guess, if Fliker isnt putting an http:// in the URL and you are pasting over the one in the shortcut box

Well...when I went to your Flickr page and just used the 'share' link it not would show up....so then I grabbed the HTML/BBC code and copied the link from within that...

" http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5546/9...b4d1fe0c_b.jpg "

minus the quotes...I like Smugmug....supports this site and is super easy(not free though)....rest of your pics are great looks like a fun ride...
sorry I missed it but riding to the meet up from down here simply adds an hour....

Dang, that was o-dark-early! But totally worth it. Had a great time and it was nice to meet fanatic and rickcool. Ended the ride with some breakfast at Tortilla Flat.

Fanatic coming off the big hill climb on 88. We lucked out and made it to the top about 3 minutes before a truck with a very wide trailered pontoon boat was headed in to Apache Lake.
