    The Weekend Ride Report: November 10-12

    Some pretty good moisture in the Bay Area hills means dust is surely on the down low and hero dirt is threatening to make an appearance here and there.

    There's some more moisture on tap today but the weekend is looking dialed. Next week and beyond is looking pretty wet.

    Loop of model images

    What are your plans for the next three days? Ride report please.The Weekend Ride Report: November 10-12-screen-shot-2017-11-10-9.56.36-am.jpg

    Since we are at the very start of the rainy season and the ground is still parched, it doesn't need much time to dry.

    Also, here's the actual rain that's falling in Demo. https://www.wunderground.com/persona...?ID=KCASOQUE20

    If it reaches close to an inch in the last 24 hours, yeah, then give it a day. Doesn't look like a ton of rain today though.

    Very wet, puddles everywhere, muddy enough that tires are making tracks. Wtf? It went from dry and dusty to this over this small storm. Might want to give it a couple days.

    Rode Delavega for the first time ever today. The WCCC DH course is actually really fun. Super-D tomorrow will be all pedaling, but still fun with the perfect traction.

    Rode Sly Park for the first time yesterday, was pleasantly surprised. I couldn't find much info on the area but it was beautiful, Lots of climbing with fast downs. Nothing to hard or teck. Rode maybe 8 miles did not see one biker but maybe 20 riders in the parking area so there must be more to ride

    Demo Forest was so amazing my bike came cout cleaner than when it started.

    It was truly, truly amazing. A rating for Braille and Flow. Tomorrow it will be A+ since the few soft spots will be gone.

    Rode all the open trails at Annadel--about 15 or so miles. The northern section of the park is ok, but you get some views of Santa Rosa that shows the path of the fire over the hills where houses used to be. The biggest changes I saw were from the bulldozers. One of my favorite shade trees on the Canyon climb is no more. But I'm glad they were able to save as much as they did. Already there are green shoots coming up through the blackened soil.

    I rode Annadel today too...it was awesome The upper/back part of the park is off limits...I’m not sure of the actual damage to the trails but, I’m sure we’ll be able to get in there in the Spring Time. I rode for 2.5 hrs, took some pictures, and cleaned up a little debris here and there. The park is still beautiful and the trails are running great...I started at Howarth Park for a little extra. If you are unsure of the park conditions, don’t be...come on out and ride. I stopped at Plow Brewing after for a couple pints

    Demo was good. A little greasy in spots. 2nd run on Flow in the afternoon was the best conditions. Did 3 laps for 30/5300 and barely made it back to my car. So exhausting after not riding for a couple weeks.

    Conditions will be phenomenal tomorrow if anyone is thinking of going out there.

    Im sorry ya'll. I've been slippin on my ride report duties. My new schedule has me all out of sorts.

    First time I've ridden since October 1st and while it was rough with the small bit of climbing we did it felt good in the end. Man I'm out of shape... We rode Flemming Meadow/Sly Park. We were scouting a route for a women's ride next week and met up with a guy who knew where the really fun trails were so we shuttled those a few times. Saw Dane P. and Derek Teel out there too. Good guys.

    Trail 8 condition was perfect. Not too wet, not too dry. It was fairly cold at 55F or less but perfect while climbing. The other trails were super slick with wet decaying leaves but made for a slip slidin good time!

    It appears my tires have been weeping because they missed the trails...

    Rode Demo along with the rest of the Bay Area today. Conditions were great. Braille was fun as hell. I rode it once 4 years ago and didn't remember much about it. Wanted to hit Flow but I was running out of daylight.

    For some reason I hated my tires all summer, they slip and slide. Unpredictable. Loose over hardpack, hard over loosepack, doesn't matter.

    all of a sudden this morning I changed my tire pressure by 1/100 of a psi and they were like magic. grip e v e r y w h e r e. I could hardly believe it. Stuck like glue. I had no idea that would make a difference. I felt like a hero all day.

    Once in 4 year?? Where do you ride?

    Flow is definitely ready. It's now dirt-jumper smooth anymore but there's traction all around.

    Holy moly. It IS the signature trail and it is in prime shape now. On the first half a dozen times down it, one will bypass the 20 features each time pass and say "that one i should have hit."

    It's worthwhile to really slow it down and stud it. Because some/all of those are really fun for many levels.

    How was the HT LT on Braille?
    I guess it handles everything fast and efficient, right? But does it like air just like a Nomad or an Ibis HD?

    Hightower LT on Braille was a dream. Skyno was right behind me as I made that into a flow trail of snappy turns and sweeeeeeet jumps. On the slippy logs and rocks, it tracked with a mere flutter here and there. On the rutted high-speed straightaway, it never ran out of talent and there was enough comfort and control to hit the extra credit.

    1st time on bike in weeks, sadly slow in Nicene but conditions were awesome. Got passed by princess ibis like I was going backwards up the incline. Good to be back in the saddle.

    Today I raced my first ever "DH race" at Delavega park in SC. I actually really like the format in the sense that we could session ever little section of the course over and over until we were confident. (This is in comparison to enduro racing where you maybe ride each stage once and are just looking for dangerous section or major obstacles). Conditions were perfect, and I was feeling really confident that I could lay down a fast run on this tight track. I leave the start line with good speed, round the first corner, and then right when I'm about to throw down some strong pedal strokes my chain snaps. Bummer. Probably spent around 6 hours on this course practicing throughout the weekend, and within 5 seconds of my race run it was already over.

    One this I did notice though was that your rear suspension works great without a chain.

    My 9 yo and I rode jmp today. On Big Trees, there's a steep down, followed by a steep up. For the first time he made it up the steep up. His smile was so huge it'll keep me going all week.

    Best. Ride. Evar.

    FC was in fact killin' it on Braille on the HT - we hit pretty much every feature and were keeping a pretty good clip - I have ridden w/ FC many times but w/ no dust we could right pretty tight and that was a golden run - it probably helped that the dirt was ridiculously grippy and cornering was magical - I think that is the best dirt I have ever ridden on Braille

    Didn't think it through since its been a while since I rode up Tractor, but it is closed as you get closer to Sawpit.

    The climb sucks, but it is faster than going up Sulfur. There is a detour leading you to section 3 of flow instead.

    Good job getting out of the way huh? When the kids are together, they'll do it all with a smile. They did two laps and then hiked up Braille to take videos. Maaaaaan, that thing is steep going up.

We were scouting a route for a women's ride next week and met up with a guy who knew where the really fun trails were so we shuttled those a few times. Saw Dane P. and Derek Teel out there too. Good guys.

    Trail 8 condition was perfect. Not too wet, not too dry. It was fairly cold at 55F or less but perfect while climbing. The other trails were super slick with wet decaying leaves but made for a slip slidin good time!

    It appears my tires have been weeping because they missed the trails...

    i asked him if he wanted me to call it in and he replied, "oh no! i'll just call it in stolen!"

    the last thing he said before he scurried away, "volvo makes a damn safe car."

    DAMN!!!! The door still opens no problem. How's that possible? On a couple recent fatal accidents on 17 and 35. The roofs of a low end Kia and Hyundai were sheared off!! Not survivable.

    Glad to have Volvo now for the kids. It's gonna be a slick winter it seems.

    I feel like 80% of these crashes wouldn’t have happened if we weren’t there yelling at them to go faster. Our reactions are the best part.

    Its easy to laugh this off as 'ha ha, what an idiot', but you really should report this.

    1) This is definitely at least misdemeanor hit and run, possibly felony hit and run. The reason the crime reaches that level (even though he only destroyed his own property) is that there is a very strong correlation between leaving the scene and DUI. As you hinted, guy is probably on something and could have just as easily hit and killed a road-biker, or a car full of kids, and the dude is very likely to do this again. This guy needs help and needs to get off the road. If he faces real penalties here, that might be what makes him wake up and get help, and you could save someone's life in the process - not just his, someone he could hit in the future.

    2) This is insurance fraud and makes all of our insurance more expensive. Let's face it: This guy isn't paying for Collision insurance. You are entitled to crash your own car, and if you pay for collision insurance you are entitled to have insurance pay for it (minus deductible) but when you don't, you steal from everyone who does pay collision.

    Its not too late: You could phone this one in and make a statement. They could give you a photo lineup and you might identify him.

    Hi FC, I see you have a hightower, I am wondering if your bike creaks as much as mine?

    Everyone I know that rides their SC bike hard, inevitably has lots of creaks.

    Yeah, the free bearings for life is a godsend, and more than makes up for the premium price of SC after a couple years. I probably have to do a full overhaul every 6 months or so.
