    I'd be in on this but alas only off on Fridays. Maybe for future?

    Thanks for your info. Some Fridays can work for me. Even this Friday actually, but not Thursday also.

    Hmmm ... let me re-phrase my announcement to a request ...

    Anyone wanna ride Carnegie Thursday OR Friday this week? :ear

    I prefer to arrive 9:30AM or so. Ride my ~20-mile training loop before & after lunch. Leave 2-3pm. I (or we) sometimes DS from Concord via Marsh Creek, Morgan Territory, Tesla, & Corral Hollow. Same times.

    Fired up the XR after 9 months sitting. Look for the critter on the back of blue 4x4 van.

    Hey All,
    I'm trying to get the word out there about our event. It's our clubs 10th Anniversary, but more importantly it will be benefiting the Haylie "Strong" Fund. She's 8yrs old, fighting bone cancer and the daughter of friends that a few of us went to High School with!

    Since I didn't write the start miles down, I'm going to guess ~2300 miles of singletrack & some DS rides.


    Three of us riding this Thursday, just not certain where yet.

    Is Georgetown still open?

    Stonyford last week was a blast! 68 miles of FUN! And some dust & powder. Wherever the logging crews used singletrack to access trees, its been groomed to tractor-wide powder. The place really needs some rain.

    Ed & Chris enjoy a cool splash at the spring-fed tank.

    Some burnt stuff in the fire zone, but most of the singletrack is still sweet! :ricky

    So, about this Thursday, Halloween ... Anyone want to join me for a couple of practice loops at Carnegie? Say 10AM? :ear That's all I have time for this week.
