Thanks Thunderdoggie! I may just have to take you up on that offer, although I think I was partly looking for an excuse to buy a new Ironman sprocket...

Think I might go for another local ride tomorrow (sun 1/2).
Probly just up to Summit Inn for late breakfast / early lunch, then back home because the weather is supposed to turn bad.
Few of the same roads as before.

So... Anyone doing noob-friendly riding this weekend? Maybe some more wide open desert stuff? Or?

As of right now I'm off on Saturday the 8th, that may change though
I would like to get some sort of ride in
I hear there is ALOT of snow in the high desert
might be better to stick with lower elevations

So is this the new thread to go to for noob type rides? One problem I have with the LA Weekend ride thread is it seems a lot of the rides posted up there are non-noob doable. That or you are going to slow down the faster riders.
