    I looped around online trail and hidden springs. No sign. Visibility is only 100 yards. See tire tracks from velociraptor rear, minion DHF, and small block 8 or renegade. Having fun solo though.

    Hey y'all... sorry we missed you. I was looking out for other riders, but quite honestly I didn't see much out there. Visibility was impossible. Every rider we did see, I slowed down in case they'd recognize my bike . Sorry... I hope your still enjoying it. It is beautiful and foggy out there. Gorgeous day to ride!

    Nelson34 and SouthBayBomber showed at 10AM. We waited for about 20min., but then realized it was just going to be us. Here are the pics!

    I cranked out on "Newton's Folly" and got a PR.

    Created a new Strava Segment called "Two Hills". Go at it boys and girls.

    Nice meeting you, Rich. Robert... Stay away from my nalgas.

    Looks like a great time! Fog looks enchanting. I'm stuck at home... When's the next social-pace ride? Doubt that group of 3 was very exciting (but better than solo or even not riding, for sure!).
    Next time, name it something other than "newbie ride" so you don't scare off the "experienced" riders.

    One more thing, what was the ride time start to finish? Strava only tells me "moving time". Or did you really ride 18 miles in 2 hrs including breaks?! I'm in worse shape than I thought.

    Well, you seem decent at tracking tire marks...
    However I'm not sure those be the tires the dion/roberto crew runs.


    In another time, with another group... the following happened. Names have been removed to protect the innocent.
    ... The TWATWAFFLE ( Those Who Attempt The Wobbling And Fast Furious Lunar Escapades ) group went... THIS WAY!! IF WE BYPASS them up Ohlone and Joice, then we can head them off at the VISTA LOOP... Or the PASS. IF you're into that sort of thing.

    ONWARD!

    Quite a bit of fog but it mange to clear up at the end. Didn't know my way around. Manage to climb up rocky ridge and descended back down to mine and looped around to stile back to harry rd.

    There were a lot of breaks. So elapsed time was like 3:35. 2 hrs. is just moving time.

    The experienced riders will come. Leopold, TJ, Marco... every once in awhile P-Marsh, Bogdan, Bassn (and his brother, Craig), a couple guys named John and a few Mike's... we all ride together, even if it's a slower pace. Team Social Pace, man... that's what we are! That's when I turn into a mid-packer, at best.

    Yeah, sorry I missed you guys. For some reason I was thinking the meeting place was on Mines trail parking, but then realized that you were meeting all the way on the Mines trail side. Stll had a good ride.

    Saw a rider on a black/white camber. he said he saw you going up Stiles. I thought this was a newbie ride.

    Anyway, I came up Joice to norred to Mine to Hidden springs. Then counter-clockwise around Ridge, Ohlone trail and back up Hidden springs. Then down Stiles and back up Fortini up mine and out to Bernal HIll loop and back home. Strangely the ST side was much wetter than the Almaden side. Going down Ridge was pretty slick and my tires got packed up. But bombing down Stiles cleaned them out nicely.

    Kinda strange I can hardly bend over to tie my shoes, but I can still do anything on the MTB with just mild discomfort. I guess adrenaline and endorphins are my friends.

    Thanks Stripes, but I think I'm mid-pack at best with this group.I haven't had the pleasure of seeing/riding with them yet, But I hear some of them wear spandex on their MTB's. I'm not fast enough to wear spandex

    I don't think any newbies showed up. Ridge was slick mid week (the same day as the rain), and very soft, I'm surprised it didn't dry off for the weekend.

    With rain expected tomorrow and Saturday-leaves really few choices to ride this weekend. If I get out Saturday may be road or KENNEDY. Sunday will probably be the same options-except Saturday is supposed to be raining in the A.M..

    Supposed to be raining throughout the weekend. Was planning to go to STCP again this weekend. And my replacement part is supposed to be arriving today. Bike will be RTG but won't be able to ride!

    Come out to Kennedy Sunday morning with The Ancient Rascal and me. Around 9:00-9:30ish in the AM, meetup at Kennedy@Top-O-The-Hill. It might not be raining.

    STCP will definitely be closed because of this rain - and rightfully so. I ask all to respect the trail closures and DO NOT ride these trails after a down pour. The rangers do a great job at assessing the conditions of the trails, and horses and bikes will absolutely destroy them. STCP is mostly clay, and putting a tire rut stays that way for a while once it dries. I want to repair some of the areas that need it - but I don't know if I can just go out there without permission. Stile Ranch is going to be awful.

    I may take the 29'er out to Nisene tomorrow. Or hell may freeze over and I may do the "K" word - but Nisene just sounds so much better.

    Weather gal say's next significant rain not until late Sunday. 10 minutes later she say's next significant rain Saturday night. I think it would be silly to try to ride this weekend. C U guy's on ur "Tractors" this weekend ! PS Nelson your "Turkey day" social pace enabled me to be primed for a killer run on Friday. LP and I will dish out the appropriate serving of well deserved misery for your riding pleasure on Sunday!

    Kennedy is usually rideable-I've been out there when its pouring-remember only one other rider out there and he came up to me and said we were both crazy! It was coming down good-I had just set up my Cannondale as a single speed-I was crazy

    'tis what I heard the weather people say around lunchtime today, a number of stations. I'll wait till Sat afternoon to get a better "prediction". Raining buckets, like this morning, would be a real sucky ride. It seems the rain will be lighter on Sat, so they say.

    On 26' wheels .... 34x22 = 1.54 to 1 and my favorite for Kennedy 32x21 = 1.52 to 1

    I rode today. It was pouring. And boring.

    I think I'm going to Nisene tomorrow - but Sunday is definitely going to be pouring.

    I only have sunday to ride. I'm going to do a stupid ride on the cross bike... I think up dirt alpine, skyline, down black mtn road. or maybe Stevens canyon. Don't know yet. I think it'll depend on how cold and wet I get.

    It's gonna be awesome!
