    12/30 SDMB 50yr ride follow up

    Awesome ride today! A dozen crazy mtbr's ravaging the desert. Thanks to Justin for guiding us to the good stuff. Scary moments after the crash, but looks like he will be alright (maybe sore for a couple weeks). Was nice to meet you all, (even tho I can't remember most of the names!) Hope to ride with y'all again sometime.

    Use this thread for all those pictures is saw taken. Thanks!

    Wish I could have made it out today but had a Dr apt. Went yesterday and the conditions were amazing! First time I rode the chutes and it's my new favorite Trail! Definitely going back another time!

    Yep, fine ride featuring much steepness today!

    Below are some of my pix from my strava account of the ride, "Eight-ish Days of Christmas" Group Technical Extravaganza, Upper 50 Area:





    Great crew of tech-loving maniacs too, thanks for organizing the day, and I hope to meet some of y'all again sometime soon.

    Cheers,

    Awesome ride, much thanks to the ride leaders that made it happen!

    It was my first time riding those trails and I will definitely have to get back out there on my full squish bike!

    After lunch we went back out and hammered out another 30ish miles out at the much more hardtail friendly Honeybee trails.
