    Joel,
    Are you/we planing on going up Cleghorn and going the back way up to Big Bear?
    Saturday:
    Ride to Wrightwood for brunch via the newly opened HW2, then to Old Pine Canyon, Lytle Creek, to Cleghorn (skip the sand wash), to Hesperia, to Coxey, and camp at Holcomb Valley Campground.


    I was thinking maybe we should go up the front side and head for the trees? The weather is going to be HOT and the thought of riding the flat roads in "Hysteria" has me sweating already.:knary I'm not saying it's not going to be hot going the front way. But I do know a nice river crossing that I wouldn't mine stopping at :rad (plus a few of us will need a shower by then):krusty .

    I can't remember the name of the trail but it's the same one we took at the at last Big Bear ride.(we came down it) The trail will dump us out at Bear Valley Ski Resort.

    I don't want to step on your plans just making a suggestion. I'll be happy either way.
    We would will have to do a little more slabbing if we went the front way but I think it would be worth it.
    You also posted that We will be meeting in Wrightwood @ 9:am for brunch, that means we would be leaving around 10:00 & 11:00. At 10:30 today in Monrovia it was 97. This is going to be a hot Ride boys and "Girl"! Going to need a small cooler for the beer on this ride!

    Weather report up in the Mountains looks good above 6000ft!Friday...Mostly sunny. Highs 76 to 86 above 6000 feet to 88 to 98 below 6000 feet.

    Friday Night...Mostly clear. Lows 58 to 67 above 6000 feet to 66 to 72 below 6000 feet.
    Saturday...Mostly sunny in the morning...Becoming partly cloudy. Highs 76 to 86 above 6000 feet to 88 to 98 below 6000 feet.

    Saturday Night...Partly cloudy in the evening...Becoming mostly clear. Lows 61 to 69 above 6000 feet to 67 to 72 below 6000 feet.

    Sunday...Mostly sunny in the morning...Becoming partly cloudy. Highs 74 to 84 above 6000 feet to 87 to 97 below 6000 feet

    Joel let me know if you need any help with the food and Drink stuff. I will be dumping off my stuff at Cathy's Thursday night.
