    Black Friday: Brown Pow sale at Demo!

    We got in 20 delicious miles, dropping Sawpit (ride it before it gets logged!) and Flow. Just about perfect. Lots of stoked people out, but not crowded on the trails. A dude, Brandon, miracled us with a couple beers in the parking lot. Only bummer- Lots of emergency vehicles headed by as we drove out. Not surprising as we saw several people that thought it would be a good idea to take their newb friends there with ancient hardtails rocking telescope stems and cantilever brakes.

    Sly is riding ridiculously good right now but 11" of snow is forecast for Sat afternoon to Sunday morning. Next Sunday is looking like another good day up there.

    Got out today despite all odds and was rewarded. Singlespeedmedia, Tony and Alex was with us.

    Every jump at Braille then we did the black dirt of Flow. It was INSANE!!!

    On the climb out, an armada of rescue vehicles came down. An older guy in a big group augered on the jump right before Braile Trail. Most likely a shoulder injury.

    So many new faces... we talked to them ALL.

    UC was really good today. 22 miles of fun trails and not many riders, surprisingly. The trails were just on the wet side of perfect.
    Hope ya had a good one!

    Are the majority of trails sandy? Would it be a good place to take a newer rider? Anyone else can chime in who has ridden it more often?

    Thanks for the update. I figured Manzanita would take longer to dry out so we'll stick with the other side of the canyon this weekend.

    Always good to see you out on the trails Bob! Easy to see you coming now, with the new bike.
    You guys must have been going more steep and deep than us. We only got 2600 ft.
    The great riding weather, combined for really fun conditions yesterday, makes you realize how lucky we all are to have such great places to ride!
    Everyone we came across seemed to be pumped!

    Got a Fremont Older ride on Thanksgiving day, me and a few hikers, then on the 25th had a very nice ride up and down the John Nicholas Trail. Conditions were perfect out there on both rides.

    Quick run up to Sand Point in Nisene to work out a quarter of my thanksgiving caloric intake.

    Loads of people out walking down low, dirt was nice. May have to hit Ord tomorrow if I get clearance from the tower.

    What trail is that in UCSC? Just the angle? Or have the gnomes been at work again?

    I rode home from there via a bit of Skyline before dropping the JNT down to Saratoga and home. Lucky my wife gets me and is more than happy to accommodate.

    This is the rain that fell in the last 48 hours. It's pretty significant in the hills and there's more spotty rain falling today.

    I call this road ride weather or garage project time.

    It looks like we'll have a long period of dry weather after today.Weekend Ride Report November 25th - 27th-1-screen-shot-2016-11-27-7.21.19-am.jpg

    Since the rain fell last night, no.

    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.

    Los Gatos saw a fair amount of rain... Filled up almost half my 500 gallon water tank last night alone.



    I headed out around 10 from my pad and went up Black Road to hit John Nicholas... Lots of Xmas tree traffic... Perhaps not the best time to go up this road. But was rewarded with some great trail conditions aside from it being cold as **** up top. Then I went back up and descended El Sereno which was also in great shape. 4k footies and pretty dang fun ride on my dh bike. Now I'm off to get a tree myself.

    Went Running in the Rain on Saturday, today I did a nice road ride instead of going full mud fest

    33.24 miles in 2.5 hours. I did the 2.2 mile climb up to Lake Del Valle out of the saddle the entire way. Longest and hardest effort ride I have done in years.

    I've flown the coop and found a land where jumps abound, berms are massive and housing is sane. Just abundant water - both liquid and frozen will dampen (har har) the riding for a few months.
