    I was moping around Friday, without a ride planned for the weekend, when late in the afternoon an email from Driller1 arrived, "Wildcat ride tomorrow?" YES YES YES! We had rain and snow this week in the valley, conditions should be PERFECT! I sent out an email to my regular players and picked up EsconDeasy looking to get out on that velcro dirt.

    I started the ride on some easy trails, a preview for next week's ride, no pictures :-(. Then it was off to find some more technical terrain.

    We found this rock in the trail that looked interesting.

    What you don't see is the two giant boulders you have to thread your bike through just after launching off the rock in this direction.

    EsconDeasy's got it figured out!

    BIG AIR!

    Even Nightstalker took a turn!

    We cut pirate ridge short and headed for the trucks, Big Earls was on our minds.

    So awesome to be riding with snow capped peaks as a backdrop!

    This past weekend's ride was a moderate. We did mostly easy trails with a couple of short hard sections. The hard sections will not be in next weekends ride.
