    Spoke with Glen earlier tonight, looks like we need 20 guys in order to be able to RIDE DOWN & RIDE OUT of reds for the BBQ. This will all be verified by Bobby who now runs Reds. I can tell you this is worth its weight in gold for the opportunity to ride your plated bike down to reds & enjoy a KILLER bbq & some COLD refreshments. It may not be for everybody, but those who partake, it will be well worth it. Time is running, please chime in:freaky Till next time

    RIDE ON!

    I'm in. I get back from overseas the day before, so I may show up completely bumfuzzled and ill-equipped, but I'll be there.

    Look forward to meeting a few of you at long last.

    I'll update the first page later with a head count.

    this year is different since every year it's usually the first Sunday in August so it's thrown everyone off. and Kennedy Meadows is the weekend before. which I am also attending.

    but yes, it will be a small group. but fuck it. let's party. and ride.

    there is so much to ride in this area. Forest roads for days. single track everywhere. paved roads that have twisties and great views.

    We have a pontoon boat rented one day, we have room for a few more if you want to get off the bike and hang on the lake.

    I am interested in going on this ride and was wondering if there are any small bike riders going. I am on a TW200 and Don't know anyone else who can go. What type of riding is it ( single track/fire roads/sandy/rocky )? How long is the ride to the top in hours? any info would be appreciated. Thanks Bubba

    Welcome Bubba
    The road up to WMRS is a fireroad, starts out from the laws train station in bishop, you can park there & donate to the train museum, a nice gesture:D The ascent up it is a bit steep, switch backs & shale rock, nothing crazy though. Once to the top then is its just a plain old fireroad all the way to the Research center, INCREDIBLE views & make sure you take the detour to the 2nd OLDEST living thing on planet earth, the FIRST is there as well:D read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Bristlecone_Pine_Forest Best part is, theres cookies & milk waiting for you there:freaky
    Heres some more info & different routes http://www.gbr.4wdtrips.net/4x4/whites.html

    RIDE ON!
