    It's Spring Time!

    Headed out on the Vulture SS 29er after not riding it for the winter today with Reviver (CCP100 Promoter) doing some scouting for the this years race. We found some new roads, climbed some very steap roads (read 22%+), road some awesome singletrack and best of all enjoyed the springtime sunshine.

    Ride details: Interesting part of todays ride, 32.46 miles and 6877' of elevation gain, 1 lap of the CCP normally is 33 miles and around 5500', this is going to be painful if we use it

    Great Leg explosion......

    Oh man! 20,631' of elevation in 97.38 miles for a three lap course. Is the fire road to single track ratio still 1:1? You have to factor that in as well.

    Yes that is School Creek Road, and yes it is undercut pretty good. You are not getting a car around there, a motorcycle not problem, infact we saw BMW Moto while we were there.

    As the BFE's question, it wouldn't be 3 laps of this, but this may be part of something bigger and with more singletrack....

    Looks like I missed a good one. I spent the day riding hills on the road, Blanton, Briggs, Wolf, CG, Ham, and Fox Hollow. Great weather!

    I forgot to mention when we were crossing the big creek on NS we had a Otter run within a few feet of us. It was pretty cool.
