    Hey Charlie it's Erik the guy from the mendo rally on the 525... Are you able to ride 9/29? I'm going to be up at Cow with some friends, it would be awesome to ride with you again.

    Well, well. You guys sneaked this thread in while I was traveling.



    Yes, and thanks for popping this up top again.

    Wednesday (or any weekday except Friday) next week looks great for me. I prefer Hollister & Carnegie for short day rides. Cow Mtn, Middle Creek, & Stonyford for an all-day ride. Just about anywhere if camping a night or 2. Intermediate-level rider who tries most black diamonds, just not as quickly as the young guys. Prefer singletrack to fast whoops. Live in Concord.

    What & where do you like to ride?

    I'm out for next week, I'll be in LA for the week for work.

    For day trips, I'll usually hit up Carnigie, Forest Hill, Stoneyford or Hollister. I'm a solid intermediat or "B" rider.

    I ride a 08 Kawi KLX450 (plated) or a 07 KTM 950 Super Enduro.

    Is your Beta plated by chance?

    Ms. Beta & I will be at Carnegie by 9AM Wednesday morning (Nov.14). Riding our black-diamond & blue-intermediate singletrack "training loop" many times. Maybe a few laps on the MX track too. Will ride until 1PM or so.

    Look for my green Toy Tundra between Moto Mart & the restroom.

    51 miles of hot sex with Ms.Beta today at Carnegie! :wink: Gorgeous day for a ride!

    Another day ride next week, Tuesday or Wednesday? Carnegie, Hollister, or where would you like to ride? I'd like to ride Hollister if the Renz ST is open.

    Let's RIDE!

    I usually ride in the hills 'til 12-1 depending on how I'm feeling and come down to the truck for lunch. Then back up for another hour or so.

    If you are late, ride up to 1st intersection of Los Osos & Ridge Trails. I'm riding both directions (east & west) there. I'll be along shortly.



    I've talked one other retired friend into joining us, so we might be as many as 4.

    See y'all in the morning!

    I ride a 950 adventure and Im looking to see if anyone is interested in doing a ride this weekend sometime. Im from the Napa area. I would be interested in Foresthill or something similar. Hollister is a little too far for me.

    I spend most of my time in Sunnyvale but work weekends. Ping me for a Big Bike ride if you want company. Just try and give me a little notice.

    Yes, perfect conditions and traction today!

    max2 rode 2 loops with me before lunch and HardWorkingDog rode a 3rd loop with me afterwards. I was done by then, but he went out for more.

    Here's some photos;
