    How was your ride today?

    Post pics and details of your So Cal adventures!

    Took PerfectZero on a quick grind up the hill to the tepee this evening. He was hoping that there was a casino up there.

    Is that the teepee on the way up to Mt. Lukens? If so, what's the story on that teepee?

    Yeah, that's the one. Dunno anything about it. All I can tell you is that the tarp is up in the warm season, and down in the cold season.

    Nice work on the photo shop!

    Cool, the guy on the left has the sun shining on him from the left, and he ain't got no shadow. The other two guys have the sun shining on them from the right. Is that guy on the left an extraterrestrial, maybe from Mars? Isn't that where the Curiosity Rover is (supposed to be)???

    This was from a week ago, in Sullivan Canyon. I went over a downed tree on the last bit of singletrack, and after clearing the tree I endo'ed on a stone that was placed just perfectly for endo'ing 26ers. The photo was moments before the bike flew on top of me. It's fun to crash sometimes.

    Rode Wildwood park in T.O today with some fellow MTBRer's. Haven't been there in a few years. The trails are in great shape! Great place to test your skills. A good workout! Ouch, I'm soar...

    Rode from the house to the LBS, bought a new bike. So I'd say it was a good day!

    Rode about 6 miles of railroad tracks before work today. Gravel is no joke! I see however that Im much more alert and have more energy through the day if I ride in the morning. Gonna consider riding to work or at least ride the tracks every morning.

    Wildwood Park ride

    Here's a video clip of a recent ride in Thousand Oaks. That's fellow member OO7 in front and PerfectZero was there too. This is a handlebar mount recording so the images are a bit bumpy.

    New guy here. Got inspired after watching ambassadorhawg's video and decided to tried riding Lizard Rock Trail this morning. After my 2.5 mile climb to the top...got a flat tire 10 secs into the downhill section. Then realized I had the wrong spare tube. So my first experience carrying my bike down the hill was pretty cool!

    OO7: Nope, at least I'd never admit to it...

    PZ: We needed you back there to call 911 in case one of us maniacs in front of you went down hard.

    Cruiznblue: That sucks! Better luck next time!
