    Smiling only to be done before or after the ride - roadie scowls are required during the ride. Geesh - I can't believe I have to post this. You all should know.
    Pffft!
    Careful, you could get kicked off Team Social Pace for talk like that!

    Some tweaker who rides UCSC dirt regularly. He's usually found around the tanks, near certain postal type trails, or the railroad tracks.

    Total tweaker.

    Should get a real day job.

    The best part of this thread? If it is riding weather, the whole lot of you doing this ride aren't on my local trails

    The worst part? If the weather looks to be shitty, with the wife out of town, my two options are this ride or Kennedy with ancient rascal.

    In! Hopefully with my brand new road bike. Yeah, this year I'll actually ride this road ride with a road bike.
    Can we talk tires now?

    Since my Niners are playing my other favorite team in the NFL, the Ravens - I'm gonna HTFU and get through this ride. I have to be mounted on the couch at kickoff which is 6:30pm EST (3:30pm PST). Brother John vs. Brother Jim... facking epic!!! If Kap brings this home, I see a MVP trophy with his name on it.

    To my TSP'ers... there are two sports that I love: MMA and Football. I know you guys don't understand my fanaticism, but my beloved football only comes home a few months out of year! Speaking of MMA, Rampage is fighting next week .

    From Last Year

    It looks like about 3 hours of riding and a little under 4 hours including the regroup at the summit and a mellow descent back to the parking lot. If we roll around 9, back by 1 and in plenty of time for a 3:30 kickoff.

    No excuses.

    Are we putting air in the tires today?

    I'll be riding to the kickoff point from the Willow Glen/Campbell area if anyone is interested in meeting up and riding out there.

    One more week!

    weather is looking good.

    Is there any interest of setting up a tv there and watching at the lot? I do have the mtbr canopy.

    Weather looks good.

    I will probably get closer to home before the game starts unless someone wants to volunteer to drive. That whiskey barrel aged Bigfoot is 13.2%

    What did you attach? I'm seeing this a good bit lately, empty boxes that say "attached images".

    How long should this take to do on a FS mtn bike, say starting from Grant Park? Assume TSP speeds as I'm no roadie. I wouldn't put slicks on my bike for one ride.

    Anything goes—no requirement for a “fast” bike—run what you normally ride (OK, so I “cheated” by putting 24"x3.5" slicks on mine ):

    From Grant, you're about 9 miles from the top and a slow 1:20 should do it. If you're a medium speed climber, I'd say 60 mins on a FS with knobbies.
