    Sunday morning 12/30/2012 Kennedy boring fireroad ride
    Yep! I am thinking the same crew from Thursday should be showing up (you know who you are!!!) and of course hoping Nelson34 will also show. Theme will be getting Marco to his 500,000 footie benchmark for 2012. Oh, and no-dabs up Dogmeat to whoever shall require it.

    Meetup point/time: Kennedy @ Top-o-the-Hill @ 10:00AM Pacfic Time.

    Is this Sierra Azul ?
    In Los gatos right? I have heard it has hills ... nic named ... brothers/sisters? and that tough guys ride up some Dogmeat trail nonstop and then also no dab the bastid brother hills on the ridge trail for additional personal glory? That just sounds rigidonkylous and yes .... I'm in ! ;) Shaping up to be a hella kick ass get together ! :smallviolin::drumroll::rockon::lol:

    I was debating this. But I'll be there.

    I haven't ridden Kennedy and I'm curious about dogmeat.

    Apparently I have permission. The wife won't be joining -- she has mid morning plans.

    That said, 10am is either hours after I generally start riding or just as I am waking up :)

    I should be there.

    I plan to be there. Got the small front sprocket replaced today which hopefully will fix my "gear suck" issue. Might be able to pedal up at least some of dogmeat this time :|

    Would also be interested in chatting about a possible new bike purchase. Should I make the switch from 26 to 29er? Not so much 26 available these days.

    See everyone by the dunny. (We'll see who knows what that means.)

    Cheers

    No rain tamale ... The skies should be as dry as a dead dingo's dongy ! I may just go down dogmeat and back up power pole instead of the no dab dogmeat deal. You only get one T-shirt ! :p C U Tamale Aussigreg ! :thumbsup:

    :lol: I really thought we did Dogmeat! Sorry for the false alarm, B.

    We did 3,200' in 12 miles today. That was brutal, and I think it was good for my bro. He and OTC own the SC trails, so today was interesting for him, since he's so used to high cadence and less bear and grind.

    I was taking a leak in the potty with my glove tucked under my chin, and - in sloooowwwww mooooootion - it fell into the toilet! I rode all the way up with only one glove, and my hand froze! My brother was kind enough to lend it to me on the way down. He said he was okay, but I know he could feel it.

    So, anybody that took a potty break pee'd on my glove.

    It took me 2 hours to thaw out, and I still ain't right. My eyes are still puffy (and no, I didn't partake in ganja today :p) and I feel BEAT. I think the body just expends a crap load of energy trying to keep itself warm.

    Bummer about the pottyglove!!! Never put faith in your own chin. :nono: Surely you’ll be out there again tomorrow (Sunday) morning for another no-dabs go up Dogmeat?

    I plan on riding longer tomorrow-I don't want to hold the normal riders up so I'll ride up to the top then do Power Poles. If any slow and I mean slow riders are interested in going up and trying. I'll take the Pivot-the Pug's been having to much fun.

    I got a crap load of stuff to do tomorrow, like take down my Christmas lights and A LOT of work stuff. I only got a couple of days before the year closes out, so it's down to the wire for me. I'm gonna bow out and probably just do some roadie hills tomorrow in the afternoon.

    I will ride p pole with you and go ahead then back if I want more beat down. Aussigreg and LG man may hit it also. It is a Sunday staple for us ... p pole almost every Sunday for over a year now. :D This is gonna be fun ! :cornut::yesnod::band:

    I'm lazy, bringing the Niner. I hope to be in shape enough to SS up Kennedy comfortably by February or so.

    Go down Dogmeat no dab to get a t-shirt? :)

    I'm generally game for whatever. I'm hoping to rope a friend in.

    Well, you did at least get some decent (3,000+) footies in today. :thumbsup: Have fun doing your roadieboy business tomorrow. *snicker* :lol:

    Ok, I'll be there in full recovery mode! Too cold out in the garage to replace the chain on the Stumpy so I'll bring the 1x10 out to play. :)

    Does this ride involve beer? I have a bottle of sculpin chillin' that will accompany me in my water bottle cage.

    I might make an appearance as well! I was going to stay up late tonight to get ready for tomorrow night at work but I miss riding with you fellas! It has been too long. My MTB hasn't seen any action in a while so I needs to get out. Will be a social pace for me most likely as I feel like crap lately. If I go, I will ride up from downtown LG the super secret back way. If I am not at the Summit Bike store by 930, either I slept in or I will try to catch up. Later homies!
