First dirt ride on the Ventana
We decided to do the Bell View ridge trail from home with friends from our road club. Only about 12 miles on an out and back along the ridge but beautiful clear skys and mid 50 temps. Helped some other riders fix a chain on the way back and had to use 2 new pins to get him going. As luck would have it Ali snapped his chain near the end and had to push about a half mile! :eek:
Here's a pic of us enjoying the sunshine and catching our breath after the first steep climb of the day. Thats Ali on the left with his wife Helen and my wife Terri on the right. We were very impressed with the Ventanas ride and ability to absorb some big hits that we usually jump on our singles. I think we're going to like this! :thumbsup:

We're going to run it again! Trail was still too muddy for the last attempt.
This Wednesday JAN 2nd.
If anyone can get away we would love company :thumbsup:
