    Hey Andy,
    Me, Dan and Laredog did that ride 2 weeks ago its just under 20 miles i'm not sure about the elevation gain. When are you planning on riding it. Its a killer loop.

    no idea of the total up due to all the ups and downs. but the starting elevation of bell is 4500 and you end at about 1200 feet. its a good one when cleared. gotta love can't see bottom drop!

    thanks you guys.
    We recently did a loop that included climbing Trabuco, descending Los Pinos, climbing San Juan to Bluejay to the top of Trabuco and down Bell Ridge. No one brought a GPS so we are attempting to figure out the total elevation gain by simply adding the two loops together separately. It was a beast of a day. 11.5 hours, 5 flat tires (including mine this morning), several bonks, 1 dinged Turner frame (S. Timm) and about 100 near death experiences.
    Today the legs feel a little slug'ish.

    Only 100 near death experiences. I just had one reading that. Gawd, am I glad I didn't hear about this ride. Man, that had to hurt.
    I may not be as good as I once was.
    But I'm as good once, as I ever was.

    Stats for Bell Ridge in average per ride format:
    2 moments of dispair. 1 freind lost (at least from the mtb scene). 6 moments of sheer inspiration. Too many merciless hike a bike sections to count. One rider down on can't see the bottom drop (sick section). 3 ticks pulled from body (seasonal). One trail side nap. 2 layers of skin lost to bushes. 3 times removing shoes and dumping dust and rocks out. 17 forms of plant life packed in to the buckles on shoes. Great ride.

    dam impressive dude!!! i do a loop with one of those descents and i'm toast! (granted i'm slugging up a 42 pound rig), but still! LP is alittle longer and maybe a tad more epic, but BR is more techno and has wilder sections. its a toss up for me what i like better, probably BR.

    hey add in coldwater next time for a 16 hour ride!!

    ps. if you don't mind HAB, join us for our annual PS 8k vert ride in october

    Hike a bike up the wash out or take LOs Pinos trail to Los Pinos peak and theres right turn you take thats kind of hard to find.
