    Okay, I'm starting to get a little tired of this rain.

    Okay, I'm starting to get a little tired of this rain!

    Can we take a vote or something to stop it?

    No Sh!t

    I hear ya. I had to cancel my ride this monring and go sit in a gym to get my excercise. Starting to really hate this stuff. I cool when it rains Monday -Friday (except my Fridays off), but when it rains on my ride days it gets really old.

    Bally's. I refuse to ride on a Lifecycle and I'm getting tired of bad/lazy spin instructors whose classes lack variety and good music. I've been reduced to running on a treadmill. I feel like a hamster.... a mildewed, soggy hamster.

    Dammit! It was SUNNY this morning and most of the afternoon in San Diego. Now, I can't even see the bay from my office (it's close) and there's rain blowing against my window. It must have come from the dreaded "LA"....

    Yahoo, the commute home is gonna be great!!

    Considering that last pic was taken at Lake Hodges, I too am curious to find out how you rode there and managed to stay so clean?? I rode from I-15 and had to turn around way before Hernandez because it went from relatively dry to mud soup.

    So is that a new anti-gravity Turner or what??
    I hope you have a big trunk... 'cuz I'm puttin' my bike in it.

    There have been several occasions within the last 2 1/2 months where I came close to having a nervous breakdown (all rain/bike related). I do the spinning thing but it's not the same. I hope this is the last of the wet stuff. All my trails are SO jacked-up.

    That is the Lake Hodges Dam. The link provided will give you lots of information about the ride and a picture of what the dam has looked like for the past seven years. If you are interested in the history of the dam follow this link (cool pictures and videos).

    We started at the Country Store and I was able to avoid the soupy areas by jumping on and off the road as we headed for the dam. By the end of the day the bike and I were a muddy mess--we gave up at the mouth of the lake (east side of I-15). But before we headed back to the cars we shot over to a restaurant for $1 pizza slices and $3 pints of Stone Pale Ale!

    So, it stopped raining, and the trail dried up enough to ride, and I pinch-flatted and had to walk back.

    Complaining doesn't help, #*%@!!!

    Finally got out

    A few of us went up and did Strawberry Peak/Red Box/Switzer. Fantastic conditions! I haven't been on Strawberry for ~3 years now. Incredible...Pictures to follow.

    Thank you. The Flux is amazing, however, I could not get it to float up this part of the trail :

    No snow

    The snow level was a few hundred feet higher than we were. There were patches of snow here and there where the sun doesn't reach, (where the sun don't shine?) but there was a lot of runoff on the trail. Luckily, even with flowing water the trail doesn't get muddy.

    We had a few big water crossings. The last one was near the bottom of the Red box-Switzer stretch. There was no crossing point so we waded through the knee deep water with the bikes over our shoulders. Very refreshing after the extended climbs on Strawberry.
