    Glad you're planning on still being Old & Slow for 2012... just like me!

    I fear we will soon have to start an 'Older & Slower' thread...

    Around 3:45 along with Mark. Titusbro will be running late. Plan is to head over to the 220 chute and then upper mine. Pat will text me when he is rolling. He should only be 20 minutes behind us. So a few more breaks and he'll catch us. You and DDB rolling today?

    That was fun. Thanks Pat, Tim, Barry, Mark, Jason and Jay.

    It was dark-ish when I got back to the parking lot so I guess I left at the right time.

    Fun ride.

    Tim was showing off when he fell. Besides, I didn't push him THAT hard.

    Sorry Jason had bike woes.

    Not this time. I did snapped a seat rail. Mark claimed he was skinny amd swapped saddles with me. I used an Allen wrench and zip ties to hold it together. Mark said it worked OK. Would have sucked otherwise. As we were half way up the climb on the North side at the time.

    Looks fun. I hiked there like 12 years ago, I remember it being cool.

    Road MMP long loop today, plenty of people out there for the Pivot demo. But once we split off on to long from comp, it was pretty clear.
    Good prep for the MBAA race there next weekend. Anyone else doing it?

    Just a route question... see above a track riding over Fat Man's Pass. If you don't mind me asking, which way do you guys ride it (S to N or N to S)? I tried to find a better way last week and it was kind of heinous coming from the north (hike-a-bike at the top). Checked it out earlier this week from the south side and there's a pretty hairy little rocky hill thing you have to clear to come at it going south to north. Do you just do some HAB and ride when you can or is there a better/more rideable way to go? Thx!

    South to North 99% of the time. HAB up the hill as I've never seen anyone climb it. Maybe Skinny-Tire on his SS. But I'm not sure he gets that high up on the mountain.

    South to North is HAB at the very top, well at least for me, which isn't syaing much. It is climable from the saddle to the bottom of the very top section which is and shall remain HAB for me for a very long time. I have ridden N to S just not all on one non-stop leg. It gets really gnarly and loose in a couple of places. I suppose there may be a small section or two that requires HAB but I don't recall specifically where, but seems to me it was all cleanable.

    Thanks for the info. I think there's a better way than what I did, maybe just east of where I went (more in the actual "pass"). I went virtually to the top of that peak over there, then west and up a short hill on the ridge where the trail just ended in a big dropoff, then backtracked, and down a loose trail that took me down and over the little hill on the south side that I'm guessing is a bit of a grunt to get going the other way. It's always kind of fun exploring odd little side tracks over there.

    This is what I did:



    Just noticed that airplane in the upper right area...

    I have never been on that portion of the trail that you backtracked. We usually ride the part of the trail that is not highlighted by your track.

    Exploring out there is fun. The ridgeline has lots of stuff off it too, but some of it, at least, likely not for the timid.

    Hella good ride, really like that section back on 304 rolling back towards 100. So happy with the new stem and seat adjustment. Basically no back pain today.

    Went from a 50mm 0degree DH stem to a 100mm 8degree, and moved the seat further over the crank.
    Feel more in control too.

    It was good meeting you guys too. I'll try to block Tuesday evenings off from from the crazy family schedule and meet up again over the next few weeks. Spring is the best time for late afternoon rides. Cool weather and long days.

    If you go east as an out and back from the top of the pass you get into the real fun.

    Was pretty dead out there today, only saw 2 other bikers on the trail, must have just missed Barry when we rolled out. Not many hikers either.

    You guys left a few minutes before me and took T100, I took Porcupine caught up to you near the juncture at the wash before the ascent up Porc.

    I saw several cyclists and hikers actually. Porcupine->1A via the red hill->VOAZ->Irregular->1A->T100 and back.

    GPS crapped out before the good stuff started so I dunno...a few miles and a bunch of climbing in about 1.5 hrs on a mountain bike.

    Yea I thought I saw you as we road out.
    Actually we hit porcupine, and then up 100 to the saddle. Hadn't done that section back in off 1A to the south, pretty cool up there.

    First day in a while to break out the long sleeve.

    Okay, I wondered if that was you up on the saddle below Fat Man's or if it was you down below. There were three groups of two riders, one group was dressed similarly to you two hence my confusion. I figured you would be riding faster than the two I caught up with.

    I meant to bundle up but the shortsleaved tee was fine. Just got a bit chilly from the evaporating prespiration once the sun started to go away.

    Yeah, we did Porcupine over to Conversation Point to Chutes to 220 to Mine Climb (thanks for showing me that, guys) and then back down around to the Switchbacks off 220 and to Zipper and then back.

    I was in the same spot you were - we stopped to session that little gap after the Mine Climb and I took my Camelbak off and started getting chilly.

    Nope. Stumpy is his backup bike. I think he wants a 36 pound sled to pedal as a replacement.

    That's why I put Pat's blankets over the seat in the truck before letting you in. Was chilly driving home with the window down. All so you could stick your head out the window and bark at people.

    Forecasters are awesome. My rule of thumb, if its less than 50% chance, it's not gonna happen.

    Legs must have read this comment. After Irregular the legs were toast tonight. I did not even have enough strength to finish with the guys or push Skinny Tire off the trail as he passed.

    Still a good ride overall. Even with the Kavu sighting.

    VOAZ heading up. At the last left turn before you get to the first saddle. I didn't see it, but more of a tip over on to a very unfortuate location.

    Both those left handers can grab you. Mark broke his wrist on the second one before the steps or was it the first one? Marky???

    It was the second left hander going up right before the 3 step climb. And it was my hand.

    What is truly demoralizing is that he was on a 40+ lb 1x10 geared DH bike. Maybe time to start needlepoint or something, but I'd suck at that too.

    I think he was born around the time of the Chernobyl fallout which would explain a lot.

    I was using maybe 75% lung capacity too which I suppose may not have helped. Probably should have not been on the bike but ahd already missed weekend rides for similar reasons and wasn't willing to let another ride go by. My measily <5 miles felt like a lot more.

    Most of the normal crew will be rolling around 3:45. My legs felt like noodles Tuesday. So I may even be slower than the normal slow.

    That was sweet - I had to leave a bit early but ended up seeing you guys at the lot anyway.

    What program do you use to generate the track with the colored line?

    I'll be doing the month end close. Enjoy and don't let Mark put any scratches in his shiny new bike.

    I broke my back road riding on Sunday (well, not really) - I'm out for at least a couple days.

    The Tues/Thurs rides usually become brokeback.

    Sometime after that for me. Maybe send your planned route by text. Thinking you guys will be heading to Lower Cheese via VOAZ so Markie can see of that BB shell is any stronger than his former ride.

    The unfortunate soul that took the tumble, and broke both bones in forearm was me. Had surgery w/ plates and screws the next day. Should heal up fine, but off the bike for 3 months. Was the 3rd switchback going up VOAZ. Went over side of trail to the left, forearm wedged between a stump and rock, and snapped as body kept going. It's a bad spot to to lose it!!

    As I went past that spot on VOAZ this evening I thought of you and your folly. Nasty place to spill. Spoke with Andy after the ride today and he mentioned you were out hiking after your surgery. Sorry you have to be off the bike. Glad it was not a neck or skull fracture.

    Good ride tonight... but I need some help. Mark gets a new bike that is 6 lbs heavier and I'm thinking that we stand a chance now on keeping up with him on the climbs... Ah, that's a 'nega-tory'! He's now crushing the climbs on the new bike as well - Made it up all of VOAZ with only one dab.

    I need more suggestions to slow this Caveman down!

    Think I might have seen you guys in the lot before I left. I was a little steamed from getting a work call that cut 1/2 an hour off an already 1.25 hour ride and just hammered out for a quick one.

    Doc- did I see you hiking with a bandaged left forearm? Anyway-my ride was pretty fun and easy. A month off the bike due to work and re-popping a dislocated rib a week ago put a damper on everything but sitting down! Looks like my travel schedule is going to decrease quite a bit over the coming months so I am getting pretty excited. I'll keep an eye out for Thursday.

    One thing that had me laughing my rear off happened while packing up to leave at the 40th lot. Watching people hunker down in thier cars or driving circles waiting for a spot to open when they could park 100 yds away. Same thing at the gym- guess they gotta save that little bit of energy! (BTW- I sat in my car and ripped off about five texts while they all waited on me to back out.)

    CSTEM we did see you, you did look preoccupied.
    Technology is a wonderful thing and a natural progressing from Stumpy, Enduro, to SX has been good. All of them feel very similar as far as pedaling goes, do feel the extra weight but what a solid ride. It was a good choice for me.

    Nice, I was wondering how the new ride was. What did you break it in on?

    I think I saw you again as I was Eastbound on 1a and you were hauling the freaking mail Westbound towards IRR and VOAZ. I got to the park bench and my ribs felt like they were sticking out my chest and through my jersey!

    The bike hasn't slowed Mark down at all, if anything, he's even faster now. I think the next step is a tow strap, that way no matter the pace we at least arrive at the same time more or less.

    If I run into some money when my pretzeling happens I may contemplate a Firebird. Otherwise the SX is probably what I'd be looking at for sure.

    Somewhere right above this section of trail is where my 575 decided to give up on its swingarm. BUT! I just got the message that it was sent to Yeti on Wednesday!! It took a while, as I had to find the receipt from '06. Oh and I had a little brain surgery too. I'll be baaaack!!

    Yes sir I did. I also failed on a couple I have made many times. Still was fun to be out riding. Fast, slow, flats or tech. It matters little as my fellow riders started the abuse as soon as I got there! Kept it up even after I had left the trail lot.
