    B-Street Rides this weekend?

    Just curious if there were any B Street group rides happening this weekend or any friendly advice for a few people looking to explore what I've heard is an awesome riding spot. I know there are some regulars on here who ride out there, I found a map and everything some general ride guidance online but it's always more fun to hook up with locals if possible.

    Not sure what group rides are going out, but I could do a Friday or Saturday morning ride.

    I use an app called strava and it has a good amount of trails on the map that it uses and you can look at for batchelor st.

    Oh nice, I've never used Strava but it seems to be the most popular one out there. Are you planning to ride Saturday?

    If Smelly is offering to show you around B Street take him up on the offer. I don't know him personally but know from friends that he is a great rider and one of the B street tail gnomes.

    Every SAT morning a group of riders, including myself, hit it up at 7:30. We generally ride for about 2.5 hours. Let me know if you'd like to join. The pace is intermediate on these rides.

    Watch out for Smelly; he's a punk lol

    Smelly is better than most sponsored riders,he's usually the best F-ing rider on the mountain.

    If you want to get out earlier, go with Pauldotcom. He's a good dude, even if he swears a lot.

    Tail gnomes are the dudes who leave used condoms in the parking lot. I stopped associating with them years ago.

    After work rides are always cool too. I can usually get to the trail head by 3 after work

    I just wish I was in good enough shape to take part in this ride and not have a heart attack. Too much time on the office and not enough time on the bike this spring.

    Yep, normal wheels for wmass (or at least the folks I ride with), there's little levers on the bars that when pushed, make a clunk & the pedaling gets easier or harder & the fork is really squishy.
    And it's pretty fast.
