    :gergThe most walking anybody did on this 60 mile loop was maybe 100 feet.
    That means that the "hiking" was .0315% of the ride. :jjen

    Editing takes time, but making a 2 minute trailer can be done at lunch.
    Didn't take too many pictures since Riceless is such an artist with his camera and the leader always knows when to stop for a shot of the fun sections. Ride report coming.

    Big thanks also to WHYNOWTHEN for letting me take his 450 into the rocks!
