    Got a Christmas tree today at Summit Road with the family. We then went to Summit Store for some sandwiches.

    Saw about 7 vehicles stop by for some food at the store. Problem was almost every bike was covered in mud. With an inch and half of rain at Demo last night, the ground was soft and muddy. All these riders EFFED it up real good. Nice job.Weekend Ride Report November 25th - 27th-15241380_10154620023923213_8565339383399859746_n.jpg

    Did a short road ride around 40 miles today. Would have stayed out longer but I forgot my light at home.

    Was going to ride but decided to save the trails and upgraded my year old drivetrain train instead for the dry weather and hero dirt later this week...

    I cannot wait for good conditions - a couple trails are like demo flow on steroids - definitely shorter but bigger berms and *nice* multi-line progressive hits. So much rad. It's raining for the foreseeable future, so went 4wheeling this afternoon.

    I hope to see you up here in the spring!!

    We didn't want to end up the recipient of a Trail builder's wrath so we stayed local (Nevada City) and hit up a short trail in town that doesn't get too mucked up. We ran out of light which made for an interesting last 2 miles with no headlamps. Haha

    Glad to see you hit the ground running up there! I'm gonna miss seeing you crush the SC trails. I'm more than a little jealous. Like I told you, the riding there made us want to move, but the drip-drip sent us south! Hope to get a tour some time.

    Took the family to Ord saw a coyouger as my my 6 year called it. It rained all night in Aptos and I couldn't imagine riding locally. Fun and there were loads of cars at Gigling but didn't see hardly anyone out on the trails.

    I can tell you that .6 inches of rain fell in the last 24 hours.

    Since that place drains well, get a late start and by noon, that place should be fine and dandy. We have clear weather until the last round of rain tonight.

    -What FC said Tone. 8th & G trails will be really good. We even had a little unexpected sprinkle in the early AM hours.

    The Creekside entrance will be mostly Ok. The usual mucky spot's will be, uhhh, mucky.

    ^ Very likely 2 clean-ish cut looking dudes who pulled up in a Cadillac sedan shortly before we rolled out. They parked, started walking towards the lake... we took off... they waited until we were gone and broke into both of our trucks. All they took from me was a pair of sunglasses. They got my buddy's wallet, ipod and briefcase. Odds of catching them are currently high, pending some video from their shopping sprees at Home Depot and Target.

    Newish Caddy with big shiny rims? I saw one near Confluence last week and it looked out of place for a cool weeknight evening.

    Allegedly an '05 CTS. Black rims. Almost sure it is this car:

    Headed up north to Bend for Thanksgiving weekend. Stopped by Shasta on the way... the biking up high might be done for a while, but the snowpack is fat!



    Bend was awesome. Great snow up high, great dirt down low. Whoops was right one the line when I was there. Snow on the way up, and a tad slick at the top:







    ... turning to hero dirt about 1/3 of the way down!



    Did I mention hero dirt??



    Had a great few days up there.

    Got shuttles?



    Got gaps?



    Got doggies?



    Got skin track?





    Got pow?

    Sweet Jim, looks like some quality turns there, I finally got to do some sliding on snow for the last 5 days in a row, east winds kinda shut things down today and sent me back to the fat bike. Back to brown pow tomorrow till the next storm

    He and another dude broke into my rig and my buddy's rig.... while we were doing trail work in the pouring rain! I lost nothing of value, other than the window. They found my buddy's wallet (among other items of value) in his truck and went on a big shopping spree and other ID theft crimes. He's a known criminal to State Parks. He's probably (I'm guessing) responsible for other trail head break-ins at FLSRA and ASRA. Interesting he was arrested by Placer Sheriff Dept.
