    that picture manages to makes one of the worst climbing bits around here look positively spectacular! It's always a great view up there...rode it a few times this last week including last night...fun but hot. And we got stopped by a ranger for doing (gasp!) 22mph on the backside decent of Longridge singletrack...it's an easy place for them to get to as there is a road access just about 50 yards from the bottom of that section...I've seen them there before as well. No ticket, just a stern warning from a Ranger who took his work very seriously.

    I'm angling to make this Thursday's ride.

    I will try to make it if my bike is in one piece. I'm pulling it apart this week to re-grease everything I can. After 6 months of use, it is getting a little creaky.

    Right on. Line up the angles to make it happen.

    Did Ricky Ranger give you a lecture or a $400 ticket?

    I´m in and also bringing another rider.

    Unfortunately carrying food or beer doesn´t work for me since I start early and my car is parked in the sun all day - or maybe I should try fried eggs ;-)
    Will contribute some $$s again, hope that´s ok

    C U later

    I'm new to the area, moved down from NLT a few months ago... planning on joining for the 6:30 ride. I've never been there before, any parking tips (if needed)? Looks like there is a small lot at the intersection of 35&9. I'm happy to drive/carpool - I can take one other.
    Looking forward to it - long time mtbr lurker, probably my first post ever. Thank you for all the stewardship online.

    Right on RobbieK. Yes, that is the parking. Big and obvious.

    Look forward to meeting you.

    There's a spot for sure. But only if you stay for the 6:30.

    Got off work late, so got home and rushed to get all my stuff ready to be there at 6:30. Got on the road at about 6;00pm, and followed the slowest Prius up Hwy9 who made no effort to use any of the turnoffs. Got there a little late but was planning on catching everybody on the trail.

    Sh*^%*, this is the first time I have done this, but I left all my gear at home sitting in my garage workbench ready to go.
    Decided at least check out the hole in skyline. Not very impressive anymore.
    Out looking for speeding mountain bikers?

    I was actually really excited to ride my old enduro 26. See how it feels now after riding my current bike for a while.

    Also was running flat pedals which I haven't done in 2 years.

    Ended up just riding up and down the closed section of road a few times trying to practice my wheelies. Still zero progress on those.

    I needed to get a little more ride time in, so I started a bit earlier with jrsmillie and headed out to the Xmas tree farm and back. Picked up Jack on the way back, who said all you slackers were already drinking at the lot. Nice meeting some new folks!

    The 6:30 ride didn't happen for me and most of my crew. Not my proudest moment. Or maybe my proudest, just haven't decided yet.
