Really??? i was wishing i'd stay home tucked up in bed all nice and warm
it was a shit ride! a shit HOT ride that is Thanks to reidy and nightstalker for sorting out the loop and leading and my twin Big-E for sweeping

I'm so glad we headed for CK I would have wounder about it if we didn't go there, sure it was a bit cold with some snow & 1 patch that most of us missed but it was well worth it

the group just clicked from the start, doing that distance with so little tar was great and only 1 flat wohoo

not sure on miles but it would've been a few and reidy's 1 last track bonus!well that's the kinda stuff i love

Thanks all for a unforgetable weekend if any of you head down under pm me so i can give you a tour

cheers

Looking back, CK Road in the Valley, Minihaha road on the mountain.



Magical expanding pill towels.



I found the ONE ice patch on the trail. It was strategically covered with snow and leaves. I blocked the trail so no one else would get caught by it.

From here it's a pretty easy ride into Crown King for lunch at The Mill.



The fires were burning in Crown King.



We just about ate them out of the keilbasa lunch special.
