Nice ride Bob!

I bet it's even better in the spring when the grass gets green.

Copy and paste from the other thread for the Friday ride;
Got up there Friday am to hear about hangovers....so we took the easy way up;
Rearsteer


The Grinch



Rob


Stopped for the view and called for bars


Next it was up Rocky Ridge to Wagy Ridge, couldn't even see our tracks from last weekend


This is a new go around


Wet dirt and some group smoothed out Just Outstanding so it was game on and no more pics to the swimming hole;






Started up Tobias and got a chance to try out the new hand chain saw







We gave up here as my bike was throwing steam and there was alot more hard work ahead

Portuguese Pass to get back


All down hill from there back to camp, thanks for dinner Rob!

Sunday was some trails that we rode the week before. After we split up, I thought it would be easy to retrace last weeks trail. WRONG. The rain started the grass growing, covering the trail. All cowtracks looked like the trail but would lead us the wrong way....

The only pic I took

what a nice rr and looks like some nice trails too. I can see why you would not want some huge bikes up there shredding up the single track,hopefully most people respect the hard work it takes to keep em in shape.perry i got to take you up for that ride. adam
