    Looks like we should get rain on Thursday, and the high for the weekend is 82. This should be a perfect conditions for a ride in Aug.

    Thanks for the video! This was my first dual sport and I had a blast on that section, perfect trail with perfect conditions.
    Too bad I was beat to a pulp by the end or I would have done a second lap :puke1

    I think that a lot of guys had the thought of doing 2 laps at the first section twice, but after about the 18 mile marker they were like never mind I will do it next year.

    Haha, Too right. Was the black trail longer? I rode it but couldn't figure out where it rejoined the blue loop (I'm old and color blind apparently) some of the guys I was riding with earlier stayed on blue but were ahead of me at the end even though I went ahead at the water stop. I keep telling myself it must have added extra miles to feel better about it anyways.
    I'm pretty sure those last few mile markers were really about five miles apart! Definitely got my moneys worth!!!

    I'm ready for the next ride already, this could become addictive!

    The first black section took you into the gully and you rode around in there a little while the blue just went up a little ways and by-passed the really hards section. We also couldn't figure out where they went back into each other.
