    Roy’s rides at Coe at typically 40 – 50 miles, 7,500 – 10,000’ climbing

    Uh-oh, who am I going to ride with then?

    Well, I’ll still do my little Willow Ridge Trail ride; it can be a “B” ride alternative for
    those who want something a little slower with breaks and focused on fun trails…
    guessin’ 20-30 miles 3-4k.

    It’s best if you have a map, really.)

    It was indeed a great day! The park was in surprisingly great shape with very little slop for this time of the year!

    Since conditions were so good, we decided to head up Jim Donnelly rather than Lyman-Willson Ridge

    Despite some fog/smog in the distance, we had clear views of the snow-capped Sierras several times - that was cool! Views within the park were awesome as always!

    A few of us hadn't experienced LP's fatbike before

    Marco grabbed my (thought unreachable) KOM on Wasno Wall with style
    From Henry Coe (JDT, Willow Ridge) - Jan 2013


    The trees of Coe have a different beauty in winter (when they aren't blocking trails, that is )
    From Henry Coe (JDT, Willow Ridge) - Jan 2013


    The lakes are all in great shape, will be awesome for swimming when it really warms up
    From Henry Coe (JDT, Willow Ridge) - Jan 2013


    Chris says she saw some flowers so fingers-crossed that we'll get a good wildflower display this spring!

    From Henry Coe (JDT, Willow Ridge) - Jan 2013


    How can you not chuckle at this?
    From Henry Coe (JDT, Willow Ridge) - Jan 2013


    Back at Hunting Hollow just before sunset!
    From Henry Coe (JDT, Willow Ridge) - Jan 2013


    I was pretty happy to get some new PRs - unexpected in January!


    Beers & food at El Toro Brewpub in Morgan Hill capped the day! Thanks everyone!

    A Ride to Wheelo Ridge



    This was the second ride for me with the GravityDropper Turbo I-beam 6 position 5" drop (1" increments).



    Last weekend I rode from Skeggs point and didn't really use it much. But this ride gave plenty of time to use it. Going down Wheelo Ridge Trail with the seat dropped put a bigger smile on my face than usual.



    LP no kidding around rode something chubbier than Oprah Winfrey's legs.



    LP is wheelie on the way to Wheelo Ridge Rd.



    By the trees we rode.



    An amphibian that's not a toad.



    There was a big rock out there we call "That Dome".



    Yes long distance runaround.



    It was easy to push off the trail.



    A ride on the single tracks of Coe...







    is always something good to know.



    Big or small, we ride them all.

    For the most part, the group stuck with the "B" ride. Temps nearly 70º and very little mud, beautiful day! A few random pictures from my camera…

    Had intentions of trying to join, but I did not even crawl out of bed till 10:00am after a 30 mile epic on Friday. Did finally get down there and the weather was simply amazing, rolled up JD to Spike Jones to Timm, then up JD again, down Wilson Peak, Up Serpentine and down Middle Steer, hit the Spot.

    Actually ran into Sally out there, and guess what Charlie you have a secret admirer, she insisted in collecting you a bouquet of mistletoe!
    Go get that KOM "You Deserve" - http://www.digitalepo.com/index.php

    Would be nice to get a monthly group ride thing going on out at Coe— one that wouldn’t coincide with my 2013 XC racing schedule, of course… although riding at Coe is always more fun than racing. Anyone willing to work around my selfish racing schedule?

    Come summer, plymmer and I have a few rides for you - oh yeah! - you may need a rubber band and cork (per Sorcerer)

    "You Know Where To Put The Cork"

    ...lyric from the Who, of course (being the best band ever and I don't want to hear any arguments).

    I think you may need a spare shifter cable, 2 spare hangers and a hacksaw blade.

    You'd be surprised how much more fun Coe is once temps. go over 100. Glorious!

    Roy.

    What? I thought it was Led Zeppelin? So confused

    I do like heat to a degree (that degree being about 100) but Coe is a great place to be when it's really hot. There is nothing like dropping everything and diving in a pond on a hot day.
