    Make it! I've got to be home by 10:30 latest. Not much time to hang out up top, but no reason not to go!:thumbsup:

    Too bad I won't be able to bring my Misfit - I'd love to ride my own bike. But I guess a rental is better than no riding at all!

    Cool! Say hi at the top, eh!

    :thumbsup:

    Latest from the Sekret underground weather shack for the ride tomorrow:

    Perfect. Should be very mild low 50's at the start with temps rising to mid 60's by early afternoon. No rain, no cold air.

    It's the Bay Area so this could change by then but it looks pretty stable now.

    See everyone tomorrow. I'll be the cool one, on that bike, with that thing and that certain jacket I like...

    Yeah, you think I like spending all day and $100 on crab? Well I do but my wife thinks I hate it and I'm doing it for her. :)

    Anyway, my mom's grand luncheon is at 12 noon. So my wife will be there early to hold the fort and distract my mom while I take my time down the mountain, shower, pretty up and show up late. That's teamwork right there.

    Thanks for the weather forecast Cmdr. Looks like a great day and a warmer day than usual.

    Haha, that's how you gotta roll with the team. I'm on the same program except when I get back at noon or so I get to go camping down in SLO and have thanksgiving dinner at the bottom of What?trail.

    Remember, 8am Rollout of the Summit Bike Shop. If you do your own thing and roll out earlier or later, you will miss half the fun. If you roll out at 7am and descend by 9am, you are beyond help :)

    This will be the warmest Turkey ride on record. Means minimal ice.

    Looks like fun
    I'm in with my 8yo on the red mtb tandem.

    First time to join the fun and on this trail ever. This is going to be tough and legs are going to hurt using the tandem.

    See everyone bright and early.

    So, no one needs help hauling up a Turkey/Lechon/Keg or anything? (Kyle?) Shoot - this means I might have to ride my DH bike up again, and that's a dang workout... But, the upside is it's a hella fun ride back down... :-)

    Dang, Scott. That's a serious offer. Only thing is, I ain't towing shite up this year! Ack. The cost of childcare ate into my turkey fund. I'll offer up the Bob trailer and a cooler though, if someone's got something substantial for it. Otherwise, I'm going lightweight with a backpack full of Pliny this year. (turkey fund and pliny fund non-transferable. ;-) )
