    Good job! Fort Ord Ride + Homebrew Session, Saturday, Feb 24

    Change of plans:

    We're riding Fort Ord! Meeting at Creekside Terrace, located here:

    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...UTF8&z=15&om=1

    If you are coming from the north and want to carpool, some of us are meeting near the cafe in the Target parking lot off of 101 and Cochrane exit.

    Let's be ready to roll by 10 am. Then we'll converge back to my place in Morgan Hill, located here:

    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...m=1&iwloc=addr

    We'll grill some meat, swap some of our favorite beverages while cooking up a batch of ale, to be enjoyed after a future ride.

    We also have a hot tub and a nice place to watch a flick. Maybe we'll pop in something bike related if people want to hang out.

    Very nice of you

    to post this, Kyle. Opening up your new home to fellow bike people. You are one of the "cool" ones in my book. I am still coughing my brains out so I will not be able to make this event but again, I do appreciate your hospitality

    While I think it is highly irresponsible to mix a dangerous sport like mountain biking with beer drinking.


    Sounds like fun! Have to see how the week shapes up, but I might be in for the debauchery.

    Truth is, I'm going to secretly try to convert the folks into Amish slaves who'll do my yardwork and laundry. And remove wallpaper. Keep it on the downlow...

    I was wondering if this was a secret plan to get everyone over, and then have a bunch of steamers lined up for the "real fun" of wallpaper removal.

    I'm in for the ride & festivities (even if it _is_ wallpaper removal). Let me know if you need any extra brewing equipment - I can pick stuff up from my father, who used to have 5-10 gallons going at any one time. We might consider making a separate batch of the "Rensho-rific Rootbeer with a Kick"... some tasty stuff - if the mysterious recipe can be found - and all the bottles don't explode before you can drink it...

    Also - do you want people to bring items to BBQ or snack on?

    Beats a gang of ill tempered monkeys any day in my book.

    So how long does it take that beer to cook, you know just in case I decide to drop by sometime

    Well, lesssee. It's usually about 3 hours from start to finish, maybe a bit more for sanitizing equipment and clean up. Its done fermenting in about a week and ready to drink after a month (or more depending on strength). Come by anytime!

    I think I'm good on the equipment. Unless he's got one of those aerators for oxygenating the wort after the boil. I'm too cheap for one of those!

    You can certainly bring grub if you feel inclined. I can que up some brats, though, and maybe grill up some onions and mushrooms, throw some spicy mustard on there and call it a meal!

    Funny you mention that. When he started the thread, I was thinking of making rootbeer there, but the liabilities would be endless, specifically after it is ready to drink...
    Hmmm...

    I got awefully good at cleaning the ceiling every time I opened a bottle.

    China Hole Back

    Might I suggest an extension of Poverty Flat Road to Los Cruzeros, up Mahoney Meadows Road and up Lost Spring Trail and go down China Hole Trail which is a cool, cool and twisty downhill single track (not as pleasureable as Middle Ridge Trail) to China Hole, then back up to the gate via the north part of China Hole Trail, this being the best way back with a slow single track climb.

    This would be your bonus miles.

    Just a thought,

    Roy.

    Wish I could make this, but I'm heading up to the Sierras for the weekend. But I do plan to enjoy that batch of homebrew after some future ride, so don't screw it up!

    Sorry to "rain" on this parade

    but all the singleytrack will be closed until at least Saturday night.

    6 hours/24hr total: COEC1 : COE PARK #2079 : 0.00/ 0.63/ 0.04/ 0.04/ 0.71

    From here: http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mtr/versprod...il=RR2&sid=MTR

    Too bad too. From the look of the 11 o'clock news, there's probably a ton of snow above HQ and on Blue Ridge.

    It was raining everywhere north of Coyote for my ride home around 10pm.

    Other ideas? Planet Ord?

    Yeah, I was afraid of that. You think that by tomorrow morning, the singletrack will still be closed? If so, Fort Ord seems to be the logical alternative.

    That's a bit farther for folks but should have the best conditions. We could meet at, what 9 am? Since East Garrison is closed, what's the new entrance?

    I was about to suggest delaying until Sunday, but now it looks like rain then too.

    You can't get into Ft Ord from Portola/Creekside any more?
