    What a great turnout for some fine riding today! I mostly only shot video so won't have a whole lot of pics to share, but here's one in particular (taken after the ride) that I really like...

    SoCal kicks ass!

    SoCal kicks ass!

    Guys, I had so much fine on that epic ride. Thanks for organizing and pulling me along. My major objective was to keep my shoulder in its socket: mission accomplished. Shoulder surgery next week. What a great ride... huge climbs, perfect cool weather, great views, miles and miles of single track and 2 dozen cool people who love to ride. And, what's more entertaining than 23 people harrassing Andy? SoCal rules! You guys are so fun. Hope to see you on some other rides soon.

    Boo hoo!
    Leslie & I are so bummed we had to stay home!
    All I have to say is Hollywood/Hugh's model photo at the end is sending shivers down the spines of women across the world...
    Was Wayne the only rigid rider? That man is core!
    Looks like you guys had a blast!
    Try that one on a Saturday next time! Geez!!

    I was wondering where you two were-

    wayne was not the only rigid- Brian aka donkey was also karate monkey rigid, as was one other KM (DDawg???- sorry- terrible with this)

    one pic for now: molly up in the lead on the climb (somewhere up there)

    Damn, looks like Tam's got a friggin HUGE camera strapped to his dome. I like that shot of Hugh and Jeff...kinda captures the "essence" of the ride.

    Jeff dude, get a snip and a shave bro! You're looking tore up!

    top of three miles of well-hiked switchbacks @ the Mt. Lowe Railway. I think the hikers were cool with us, but many a "hello" went unanswered.

    another shot. anyone do a "money count" on the bikes total worth? a silly curiosity.

    this was at another waiting point at the midsection of the fire road climb. have a bike or 24.

    (edit: this is where I tried to trade the TituSS for a Seven )

    rocked on the TituSS- and according to some, they were impressed with my climbing ability. I got my 2nd wind when we got to the fireroad and did my best.

    i am currently paying for it- left knee is hozed. going up stairs- bad, going down, not so bad. into the car- bad, out of the car- not so bad. ugh.

    I am sorry since I am really bad with names, so if you see some one with out a name in a photo please chime in, I'll add the photos in three posts following this one. I had a great time, and will definitely be doing that particular climb more in the future. There were so many new faces, and some old ones too. Can't wait for the next one.
    Mental note if you have bruised ribs do not do this ride.

    This is a real tight switchback. It is almost necessary to hop it to get around:


    andy_aka_rut clears it:








    A dab:


    Terminaut cleans it without hopping

    Snip & shave?

    I'm goin' 70's bro. Rough and ready to rock. Now where are my hip-hugger bell bottoms?

    Tam was hauling all kinds of gear. He should have some killer vid soon.

    i might have you beat on the dab. hollywood was at the bottom of one of the tight tech sections and has vid of everyone attempting it, except for me.

    thanks, hollywood. jerk.

    Why can't I see some of the images?

    From the comments, this looks to be a nice thread with nice pictures that I cannot see. Red X's are all I get for most of HW's post. I do see the group pic though. For those who considering an answer to my problem, here's what I'm running:

    Mac OS10 on a brand new G5 ( too bad it's sitting here on my desk at work and belongs to my employer)
    Internet Explorer 5.2

    I can see some images but can't see others. I read over on Passion that other Mac users are experiencing the same thing. I've already checked the "view images" boc in my options section and I have the
    view options" thing in IE checked off as well. Any takers!

    Thanks!

    James
