    Team Social Pace Saturday morning @ STCP 10AM-ish
    Meet up at the Camden@Harry Road entrance around 10:00-ish AM. Ample parking there. Trails should be plenty dried up by then.
    PLEASE NOTE: time has been changed to a more slacktardulotudinal 10:00AM, as some of you are slackers—we are accommodating your slack.

    Join us, sucka! Seriously, I think you’d have fun hammering your singlespeed up Hidden Springs or better yet, the Ohlone to Boundary grinder.

    Driving by the Kennedy Trailhead this week...I saw AR coddling Dion's "seasoned" glove and muttering my precious.

    Maybe he is a tad too attached to that awful hill :)

    Fixed!

    FYI, Some of the trails are the worst I've ever seen them. Stile Ranch is ridiculous on the bright side and the dark side. I was descending the dark side the other day and turned my front wheel - yet my bike was still going straight... that's how slick the mud is. The bright side is beat to all hell - get ready to dab if you haven't been up it in awhile.

    Take it easy on the wood bridges.

    The dirt has been extremely difficult to climb since you just sink in, so be ready for some serious rolling resistance.

    I haven't even tried RR because I heard the roller coasters are extremely muddy and difficult to ride through.

    I know, I know its too far away, scary in the dark woods, hillbillies and monsters be there but its so awesome to ride. Best part is I'll be there tomorrow on my new wonder fiber 29er.

    Hey now, you threadjackers! :nono: OK, if we move it up to 10:00AM will that make everyone happier? I’m going to do a recon ride on my fatbike over at STCP in a little while to assess the trails. The fatbike helps groom the trails, thanks to the 3.8" wide tires run between 5 - 10psi which actually flatten and even out the ruts caused by “skinny” tires and horse hoof damage.

    I'll be at Skegg's. When are you rolling? I'm planning more of a solo ride, unless you want to chill. My first ride in 3 weeks, and 10+ extra pounds. It's going to be pretty bad and painful.

    Newton- I was planning a solo anti-social pace ride. I want to put the new bike through its paces and want to push myself at bit. Give me the finger and call me an A-hole if you see me trying to be a racer boy.:thumbsup:

    It is brutal out there. Took the CX for a light spin, climbed Radio Tower and descended Boundary to Coyote. Actually had to walk some areas because my tires just wouldn't hook up.

    Hmmm-maybe ill just do a repeat ride if last week except ride from home-STP doesn't sound to cool-

    The main trails aren't bad. Stile Ranch is ridable. When you venture off into the shadows is when it gets funky.

    What about SC?

    Not to poach this thread, but, I have plans on heading to either Nisene/Demo or SC tomorrow if anyone is interested. I have room for 2 more in my truck if any takers.

    I'll be at STCP. Starting at the Bernal side. Look for me riding around with the neon yellow gloves.

    I'll get out to STCP, but I can't keep up with Brett's and Marco's pace. For me, the only incentive to go out there for the 4h day in a row would be TSP in full effect, but it looks like that won't be the case. If Robert's not going, I may go solo out to Almaden Quicksilver on the CX bike, loop around and do a loop at STCP to home.

    I'm in this time. Look for a winded old guy on a 97 Enduro SL. I'm coming up from the ST side but I'll try to meet you at harry/camden or between there and the traihead at stiles/Fortini if you start before I get there
  • 01-05-2013

    Ok took me 45 mins to get from the ST side to Fortini trail entrance. I'll have to remember that next time. Haven't seen yellow gloves. Guess I'll head up Stiles

    Yeah. Last two rides it was sore; not once I get going but before and after; and getting worse. I guess I'm paying the price for increasing my work rate too quickly and also not being disciplined with stretching :(

    I ended up going anyway. I hesitated, got kinda lazy, and Kelly encouraged me to roll out - so I did on the CX bike. Got in a solid 17 miles of hard work - now I have to dial back for a few days, then go hard in the mahfuggin' paint!

    "Yellow Gloves here" Not too bad today. Rode from ST side, up Bernal Rd (good warmup), to the 'small parking lot', then through Pueblo (towards the girl's ranch), and down Fortini. U-turned at the picnic table at the Fortini entrance. I could hear the spirits of "Dion" cursing out Stiles. Headed back up Fortini/Mine and took Mine Hill to the small parking lot (big mistake, that climb sucks). Then bombed down Bernal Hill, to Joice to Norred and back to the streets for the ride home.
