    Henry Coe w/ Fast Eddy & Fred-da-Trog

    It's a good hurt that I have right now.

    I always wanted to do Coe. Been on the list of places to hit. I figured since I can't make the mega ride this weekend, the ride that Fred-da-Trog put together w/ Fast Eddy sounded just like what I needed to get motivated out to Coe.

    I have no idea where we went, but Fast Eddy delivered an epic ride, complete w/ Tecata beer for our lunches.

    Thanks Ed for a great day

    Let this Dweeb plot it out:

    Summary Data
    Total Time (h:m:s) 6:37:06
    Moving Time (h:m:s) 4:50:04
    Distance (mi ) 33.77
    Moving Speed (mph) 6.6 avg. 27.6 max.
    Elevation Gain (ft) +7,052 / -7,080
    Temperature (°F) 74.6°F avg. 81°F high
    Wind Speed ( mph) S 6.6 avg. S 11.5 max.

    Hell of a Ride!!!

    Wow - what a ride. And your time was pretty amazing too. For sure I never want to ride with you guys.

    To prove what a dweeb plotter I am, from your altitudes and profile, I could figure out exactly where you went, pretty much from memory of the profiles. (And an odd creature gave me a hint.) I labeled your profile with the routes you took. See below

    I think 7000' climb is a little high, but it's at least 6000' for that route. Mahoney Meadows may be the difference as it adds over 500' in each direction even though it appears "level". A monster ride in any case. How did you get the stats, especially temperature and wind? Was this a GPS or altimeter watch?

    Sadly, it looks like you took the Coit Rd. and missed most of the sweet single track right around Hunting Hollow. This makes some sense going up, but doing the single track back down is well worth the slight climb back up Coit, if you have any energy left. You also skipped the Anza ST is also nice, but requires another 400' of climb, which you probably didn't have any energy left after the end of that monster ride.

    For that distance, I would have gone deeper into Henry Coe rather than just to the trails around the other entrance that you can get to from HQ, but that route is safer though, and the Middle Ridge is some of the best single track at Henry Coe.

    Don't worry Joseph. Because bigger groups go slower, I pulled back the rides so even the A ride only does 5000' of climb and less than 30 miles. And we'll do all the sweet ST around Hunting Hollow - Both Ways! But you'll be hurting going up that route.

    It's not slow, it's doing more MTB time.

    I think that 200' jump was the bunny hop they did after seeing their first wild boar come charging at them in Henry Coe.

    Missing the single track at the end was my fault. I had an obligation to get back to. imjps and I bailed on Fast(space) Eddy. He kept talking about how much fun a night ride would be. He's probably still out there. I made it home with five minutes to spare.

    It was a great tour, thanks F E

    I went down the road at the end too. I was one salami sandwich and a bottle of gatorade away from being interested in singletrack at that point. I got back to the lime and tecate about 4:20.

    Everyone make sure you bring enough food on Saturday.
