    Ricardo,

    Great video, thanks for taking the time to edit and post.

    Darold,

    Please send me the .gpx file when you can.


    I will not be able to ride this weekend as I am having Angioplasty done Friday and the weather is looking kind of sucky as well. I would like to do something easy 2/16 if anyone is intrested and would be open to ideas.


    Take care
    Bill

    Looks like you all had a good ride. Did you make it to the Dam and go under the spillway?

    refokus,


    We did but I wound up walking it up the hill on the west side of the dam.

    The wost part of the ride was the 20 miles of washboard into the sun at the end.

    Hey Bill:
    Ok here's how it goes after Fri----- NO MO BACON !!! yep from here on out if it tastes good --spit it out!!!---:lol3

    But,GOD, what a rush when when the clown poking that wire through your valves opens the stickey one :clap

    Good Luck w/ the grand opening, there's really not much to it except everything that you & I "use to love " to eat is now taboo

    See ya on the trail buddy.

    Thank you all who have send me the kind words. I am adjusting to the no bacon as best I can:cry Right now the no smoking is what is killing me, I wonder if I can eat the smokes instead:huh

    Anyway I am thinking maybe a Cochran loop for Sat 2/16 if anyone is intreated. If something else sounds better please chime in.

    Paul,

    Don't worry, I am sure 30 day will fly by. Heck maybe Mike will be ready for a ride by then. As for myself I am just looking forward to getting it over with and see the benifits.

    I will post tomorrow when I get back home and will give you a shout.

    OK guys this "OVER THE HILL GANG" shit got to stop , As we all know we got places to go, people to see, things to do.

    I still want to see whats over the next mountain or around the next curve.I suggest that we form a "mutual appreciation group" ,

    pack up our meds, batteries, jumper cables & what ever else it takes to keep us ticking & go for a nice long ride

    What say you ?

    Agreed,

    Who is up for a nice and easy Cochran ride Saturday? I am thinking after Cochran we can continue to Highway 177 then up to Superior for lunch. Lets say meet at the Queen Creek Cafe at 9:00
