    Been to a lot of rides but this one's the best.

    I took her to Big Trees and the West View loop on JMP/Redwood Park and she loved it too! I can't wait until she's ready to pedal on her own. =)

    I did the Pacifica "Crack" last Sunday. The trails that matter are endearingly called The Crack, XXX and Boyscout (there's also 911 but I didn't do that). My cameraman bailed after the first trail after realizing he wasn't meant for freeride/downhill trails. Here's the write-up I did for another group:



    Well, I survived "The Crack."

    I went for the full 6.5 mile ride up to the peak. The "Wall" (0.5 miles of
    climbing hell) wasn't too bad as long as you're on the granny and maintaining
    traction. Otherwise, a piece of cake. My friend was attacking it and made it
    up to the peak a good 5 minutes before I did (he had the lighter bike, no
    downhill gear and he is a roadie... that's my excuse).

    Once we descended, we entered the Crack 1.5 miles down and that's where the fun
    starts. If your head isn't calibrated to tackle instant drops and tight
    technical descents, then you better be off your bike. There was one section on
    the "Crack" that I decided to walk but midway through realized that it was
    doable as long as you pick a clean line and trust gravity (I should have a spare
    crappy DH bike so I don't worry about scratching my frame).

    With that thought, we headed out to XXX. My friend, who walked 90% of The Crack
    decided he wasn't the downhill type and said goodbye at that point. I just took
    him off my Xmas list (haha!). So off I went to XXX solo but still excited. The
    first hundred yards was deceiving and would lull you in a false sense that this
    would be an easy trail. From that point it was practically vertical switchbacks
    UNTIL you hit the drops. You're right, Jerome. There were three table-top
    drops that were pointing downwards. The first one was actually the tail end of
    steep initial drop hanging right and then left to a G-out. I cleaned that
    section but I had to scout it before doing it... by the time I was on the tail
    end, I closed my eyes for a fraction of a second thinking disaster was going to
    ensue but trusting my momentum, I made it down and up. I was ecstatic!

    Thinking that I conquered XXX, I rode down a bit more until I got to the second
    drop... a more sinister table top that requires you to clear a section, land
    clean on a cambered landing and then up. After pondering and assessing my
    skills (and luck at that point), I decided to cash out. So off the bike I go
    and walked this section down. I got to the little bunny hills hoping that would
    have been the end of it, and then hit a fork on the trail. I stayed left and
    was greeted by an even bigger table top drop (the last one). So I turned the
    bike around and headed back to the other trail, which brought you back to the
    cemented section.

    After a phone call from another friend who just did this trail the day before, I
    finally found Boy Scout. Having seen their videos and one of my more
    aerobatically skilled buddies eat the first jump on BS, I was a bit reluctant to
    do it. But after riding around the trail and choosing the adequate lines, I
    headed back to the top of Boy Scout and took the plunge. I got to the ramp at
    mid-speed and sort of bunny-hopped it at the top so I land on two wheels. That
    did the trick and I was on my way down the trail upright! I let out a primal
    scream that echoed through the forest after that jump and jammed the way down.
    As I exited Boy Scout, I almost hit an outgoing car because I was so focused on
    my line. And just like that, it was over.

    Definitely worth going back... over and over until I clean the entire trail...
    and that might take a while.

    I took my bike out and rode around the beach area (all the way down to Marina del Rey?). Someone said try the California Incline and when I went there, I was like, "What?"

    Hey Mike... I work in Concord, and once things dry up, we'll resume our after work bike rides up Mitchel Canyon (probably starting from Shell Ridge). It's usually Tuesdays or Wednesdays... let me know if you're interested.

    We also have a good group of guys who ride Tuesday nights (Endless Cycle-Castro Valley sponsored), Thursday Night Lake Chabot rides, and then more gravity-specific rides on Sunday (P-town seems to be the new favorite, used to be Demo).

    Hey Right On Ron. Definitely would love to hook up for a ride with you guys. Tuesday night is a little tough and wed are doable. I'm usually home from work around 6pm. So yeah, that would be cool to meet up and ride. I've been interested to check out that Endless Cycles night ride. I'll have to make that happen when I can. Feel free to PM me any time. I'm doing Boggs this weekend and Sea Otter in a couple of weeks. After that I should be good to go.

    Team or 8-hour solo at Boggs? Man, that's hardcore, especially with all the snow up there. My buddy (Twindaddy) is racing this weekend too... he placed third in his class last year. A few friends from Tropa are doing Sea Otter also... I'm not fast or strong so it'll be a while before I dabble in the racing thing.

    I'll let you know when we resume. PM me too if you're up for a night ride.

    This is my first boggs so I am doing the team event. There is five of us going up. I'm hoping this nice weather this week will dry out the course a bit. But who knows. Just going to have some fun with group. Sea Otter is another good one. I'm not that fast so my expectations for sea otter is very low. There are some really fast riders at that event and at all levels. Yeah, I night ride all the time cause I have 3 kids. I usually head out at about 8:30pm. Do you go out that late? If so, maybe we can do something this week?

    Good luck! I've ridden Boggs and it is a beautiful trail. Not sure about winter conditions up there, though. Stuart said it was painfully cold when he raced last year, and as of last week, the report I heard was 6 ft of snow! Anyway, I'm sure you and your buddies will do well. I heard there was plenty of beer flowing... haha!

    Man, you're not kidding about your night rides! We're usually done at around 8-9PM! I will let you know if my schedule allows me to do a late ride. Where do you often go? And don't tell me you go solo? I've done that a couple of times and my mind keeps playing tricks on me... haha!

    Some good trails out here, more or less an hour drive from the city. I meet my girl in 07 and she's been my best riding bud since. We ride slow and like the techy stuff the NE offers - roots, rocks, rollers etc. I left Roxas City, Capiz in '82...
