    A Saturday at Demo…

    I think this was my weirdest ride at Demo last Saturday. It started at 8AM with the main parking lot being closed. Then:
    - Lots of cars (and dust) on Aptos Creek Road
    - "Wild" rave on Aptos Creek Road (hence the cars), loud electronic music, people stone…
    - Passed a group of riders on Mountain Unicycles (!) going down Hihn's Mill Road.
    - Spotted the beast below. The riders told me that they took it down Braille the last time they were there!

    Looking forward to next Saturday

    That bike's made some appearances at the Wednesday rides at Passion Trail Bikes in Belmont.

    Yeah, you want to grab the pink bottle in the back...It's usually full of "Stoker Juice"!

    Ran into the couple on that rig at the top of ridge, my brother and I were discussing its descent ability on braille (assuming pretty lousy). My negativity caught up to me and my fork failed 3/4 way down ridge and we had to hike back out, didn't even get to see braille. Moral of the story is to always think positive or your junk will break.

    I saw the tandem below leading towards Finch once... I did not see if they managed to climb it though.

    That was my bike you saw at Demo on Saturday. We have been a lot of places on it.

    Pam and I only got up 4 of the switchbacks on Finch. Not as good as Charles and Jay.

    Janet and I rode the Tamarancho flow trail the weekend before. All the turns were really fun. Some of the rollovers were too steep to make with the clearance on the bottom tube.

    I am looking forward to helping build the new flow trail at Demo. That way I can ensure it is tandem friendly.

    I don't doubt they could. Jon and Nica are awesome tandem riders. They are the only team I have seen getting decent air on a tandem.
