    Judging by previous posts, obviously a pitiful attempt to make people believe English is not his native language and perhaps impart some inane humor.

    My guess is someone with way too much time on their hands.

    Not sure

    Didn't we start the downhill around 8 last year? I'll be shuttling again this year as I'm chef for a day and if I climb I'm usually thinking about a nap when I should be doing my job. There's enough of a climb to get a workout anyways. I've got a group of about 8 coming this year. Last year we were covered by MBA Mountain Bike Action.

    I put the time for 9 am since some of my buddies will be climbing and the others will be shuttling. We should all hopefully meet up at cow canyon saddle at 9 am. By then, if there is any snow like last time, the snow should be "plowed" by the earlier riders.

    I'll see you up there. I'm starting from my house in Upland, so look for the guy hurting real bad on a grey Kona Unit.

    So for a guy intending to shuttle, but have never ridden this before and don't have any riding buddies coming to this ride, when should I plan to be at Cow Canyon Saddle?

    (The desire for clarification stems from the fact that another organizer (Hohnster) on another website (mybikesite.com) is posting a departure time of 8:00AM.)

    Seems like the Turkey Ride went off without a hitch. I think we had something like 70 people at the top of Sunset Peak giving our thanks for the day, but I've never been a good estimator so I could be off.

    Oh, I was the guy with the dust mask. It seemed like a good idea when you think of 100-something people coming down a trail, but oh well.
