    Kern Canyon trail (pic heavy)

    On Sunday I met up with several MTBR riders to do the Kern Canyon trail from Keysville to the Bridge. We met at 5:45 AM I don't usually have a pulse this early in the morning. We set up the shuttle and got on the trail by 6:30 or so. It was nice and cool. The ride went great, we only had one broken chain. We were done by 11. My ride computer said 21.4 miles, 2:52 ride time, 2640' of climbing. With the recent rain and cooler temperatures, the hills were still green and a few wildflowers were still out. Here are a few pics.































    Thanks Esteban, Dave and Mark for getting me out of bed early.

    Quick

    Man Allison, you are fast. It was only up for 3 minutes before you responded. What does that say about your MTBR/STR habit?

    decent

    This is an XC trail. I think the start is about 400' higher than the bridge so that means about 3000' of decent.

    Sweet pics. Those came out really good. But where are the couple we took of you? Are you the mysterious man behind the camera?

    Thanks to you Jeff for being our tour guide. Sorry our slow butts made you wait so long.

    Great pics! I usually do that ride over Thanksgiving weekend, so it never looks that green. Someone was asking about the descent. I took a guy out there and when we got done he called that ride a geographic anomaly, since even though the map showed we descended he swore he'd been climbing the whole time. The only long sustained descent is in the last few miles.

    That is definitely one of the rides I miss since heading for the Rockies, but I'll find something around here to help me get over it. Thanks again!
