    BCT Hijinx!

    Well the day started off with news from Sixty that his shock was blown so he was a no go. Things got better when we found out that Kavu's bike needed to have some cables run which gracefully Smokin Spokes Stevo took care of in our favorite meet up spot Our ride started off by my chain breakin within 2 miles of the ride and Stevo O losing his lock/cap to his camelback. For the most part that was the most trouble we encountered on the trail other than my fall which required some handy first aid from SteveO which allowed me to finish the ride. We did have one other incident when SteveO gave a rattler a little shower on accident near a palo verde. He jumped about 10 feet back as the rattler actually struck at him but missed! Water definitely ran out so a filter is a must for this ride in this heat. Props to Cesslinger for ridin with the 29er with mary bars and the rest of us who were over gunned for this battle. Overall 26 miles and about 6-7 hours with r&r at the river stops along the way. Thanks again to YuriB and crew for the agua at the end!

    talk bout getting a lill jumpy....man when i heard that thing start to rattle right when I was giving it the old one,two shake...OK maybe three...then as I zipped, at that same time I heard the rattle to my left, saw the tail winding up under him in a lill brittle bush, still kinda wet from my pee.... he let out this mean rattle, and I was like 10 feet to the right with a swift like move from thriller dance movie. Not to mention no frank above the beans happened mid flight thankfully. from then on I was on high alert for snakes..
    Probably a good thing I didn't eat those mushrooms after all

    yeah nothing like losing your lock valve on the bite valve on your hydro pack pretty much 2 min. in the ride. I would have to guess I lost about what I was wishing I had 1.5 hour before our ride ended when we/I all pretty much ran outta water and the groups tone kinda went from this is fun to when will we be done or thank god for that last river crossing, think that pretty much brought us back to life....till we get to the top and then wished we had stayed in the river. We pushed on to the end with no water to be saved at the end with water...kinda funny how something so simple tastes so dam good thanks again..

    Big ups to Chuck for keeping it real on the fully rigid SS

    Eric.... learn to work on bike

    Thanks to everyone that set this up, including 66ty6.

    I had been warned not to bring the rigid SS; but I was glad that I did. Lots of fun and most of the trail felt like a giant pump track but with exposure!!

    It was truly an adventure and I can't wait for the next one!!

    Awesome post. This whole thing made me start to pace for another BCT SSRigid ride. Beer a must, snake, not so much... The beans and frank comment made me spray coffee through my nose. *ziiiip* Better get out there soon, before the heat comes out to play!

    Nice eventful ride. Makes for some pretty good write-ups! But wow...6-7 hours for 26 miles? Did you do the BCC down to Little Pan Loop, around the loop and back? Must have been some serious R & R at the river. What were you boys doing down there?

    The knee situation cut into a lot of our time and I wasn't exactly railing after that. We get really, really close on our rides.

    SteveO stopping by today to refill your first aid kit!

    It took us about that long too between sidewall tears, chasing carp and swimming.
    This is just need to know information: Am i supposed to enjoy the irony or pity the sincerity?

    Man, now I'm sorry I missed all the fun (except for the sidewall tears, cuts, hydration issues and other mechanicals )!

    What gear ratio do you use when tackling this ride? I shuttle alot so I use 32x22 on everything lol. Luckily I know how to pump so I am able to get by without spinning my legs to pieces. However, that 4 mile climb was still TOUGH even with the SS granny gearing.

    What route did you ride? Looks like a group is getting together for Sunday but I am curious on your route. I am also wondering how far north you can start......guess I better go find Dale's map and see.
