    Sat 11/14 SoMo C2C2C

    FOTP training ride!!

    FIP @ 7:30pm from the north ramada @ Pima Canyon/48th St entrance.

    Plan is to ride non-stop from the parking area up Mormon to Buena Vista to gauge ourselves against the 1-hr cutoff time for FOTP. Then we can be more relaxed - National to San Juan, then ride the roads back up to BV, and National all the way back to the ramadas.

    This is a tough long ride. Total mileage is about 28. Ride time could push 6 hours but I'm hoping for less than 5.... we gotta keep it moving. But never fear, there are lots of bail-out options along the way if you've had enough.

    Post up if you want to join. I'll be rolling from my house at 7 AM if anyone wants an extra 4x2 miles of DC fun.

    Yeah, I'll be there. I don't think 3 hrs will be enough, are you going to do FOTP?

    Has anyone ever done an Evil Figure Eight?

    By that I mean something along the lines of...

    - up Mormon or National
    - down Geronimo, Kiwanis
    - up, over and down Alta
    - up either West National, Ranger, or road to BV
    - down Corona de Loma
    - back around DC to BV

    Or is this just insane thinking?

    Can you tell someone misses SoMo (again)?

    Don't let that worry you. People ride that trail on every type of bike imaginable, including unicycles. (5 or 6 inch fork sure helps though )

    Krein and Mikesee did that ride last year when I suggested it. Dale has had it as a route on his website for a while. I've wanted to do it but keep breaking things (body parts) and my enthusiasm gets killed. Maybe this winter!!!

    Usually I'd do it on my 5" or 6" bike but this Sat I plan to be on my lightweight softail with a 100mm fork since that's my FOTP bike and I'm "in training". Should be interesting!

    Aaron, I'm planning on doing the exact same ride on Sunday. Not necessarily pushing straight to BV but moving at a decent pace. You are more than welcome to join Maad and me.

    Of course, you peeps in AZ make it tough to be Extreme.

    We were planning on launching at 7:30 on SUNDAY but we could possibly delay that (and I'm speaking unilaterally now) start considering the drops in temperatures or if say someone was coming from the other side of town and wanted to join us

    Saturday Ride Update!!!

    C2C2C is usually a >100oz ride so Noel has offered to stash a few gallons of H2O near the San Juan road gate. Thanks!!! But everyone should still bring a full 100 oz bladder.

    For these longer rides, I find that a waterbottle full of Perpetuem (Hammer product) works really well for keeping up my energy level. For FOTP, I'll down 3 servings of Perpetuem thru the day to keep myself going over the long haul. Keeping constant nutrients going in is key to survival.

    Also, real food is nice on longer rides. I'll likely pack a sandwich on Saturday and watch everyone drool as they try to swallow yet another Cliff or Powerbar. Grapes are yummy too.

    See you all on Saturday!!

    Where do you the Perpetuem stuff from? Never heard of it ...

    Sam was nice enough to share some of his gatorade on the Lemon Drop ride and it's amazing how much it helped!

    Any bike shop that sells Hammer Nutrition products will have Perpetuem in single doses to try out. I buy the big jugs from South Mountain Cycles. Perpetuem is not all super sweet like gatorade or other energy drinks which is why I like it... sort of chalky, but the taste grows on you.

    I just stashed 8 gallons of water at "the usual spot"

    Save the Sunday crew a couple - FATTRAXX what say you?

    If it's just Maad and me, 2 will be plenty!

    It's time for confirmations for both rides.

    I was on the mountain all day today and the weather was primo out there.

    yeah real food. that reminds me of a time on a 60 miler in flagstaff, and my buddy whips out an EGG MCMUFFIN from his pack after about 4 hours, and we all almost died of envy.

    Thanks Elno!! We'll save you some and if we use it up (doubtful), then I'll replace it with more. Chances are I will do shuttles on Sunday so I'll go pick up all the empties when the day is done. Or, you never know.... maybe I'll join you on Sunday for a double dose of the C2C2C!

    I finally "rode" up Mormon and down National from the Pima Canyon parking lot today. It was more like taking my bike for an exhausting walk. I'm quite sure that all of you that say you'll be riding these trails are just big ol' liars. And the "people" zooming past me down National were actually ghost riders , doomed to ride up and down the trails that witnessed their sad, sad demise. My proof is that one of the riders that flew past me (carefully walking my 6" travel AM bike through a series of 2+ foot drops leading into a blind, 8" wide hairpin turn next to a yawning chasm) was on a rigid single speed. Clearly not human.

    We were riding up there as well and saw that same guy. He was a monster and was cleaning just about everything in sight!

    As far as you C2C2C crazies, have fun. I look forward to pulling that one off some day!

    There is a garbage can right there so no need to hassle with the empties.

    A double dose of C2C2C? Has that ever been done?

    See you Sunday Aaron!

    It's dripping a bit at SoMo right now but the ride is still on! Bring your rain jacket. When do we ever get to ride in the rain? Should be fun. Hopefully it'll just be a few sprinkles. I'm riding on over in about 10 minutes...

    Awesome ride! 26+ miles with no mechanicals or blood. Bit chilly in the rain towards the end though. BIG thanks to Noelg for stashing the water for us!

    Indeed... BIG thanks to Noel for the water stash! We only used about 2.5 gallons so there is plenty for your ride tomorrow

    It was as close to a perfect ride today as possible, I think. Started with a group of 12 or 14 or so (not everyone is in the group photo, and yes, Lostboyz looks like a dork yet again). Those timing themselves for FOTP all made the 1hr cutoff to BV. After regrouping, we rolled together to Telegraph. I gotta say... that part of National is one sweet slice of trail. I should ride it more often - it's that much fun and it's in my backyard! Chunky, bumpy, and delicious. Was pleased to show it to some on the ride who'd never been beyond Buena Vista. At Telegraph, some turned back and 8 continued on. The crew of Donna, Micki, Dan, Mike, Steve, Aaron, Aaron, and myself plodded up the hike-a-bike to enjoy more of National. This time, even more were on unchartered territory. Virgins no more! We ripped along at a good pace and before we knew it were down to the San Juan road. A little lunch (Trader Joes chicken wrap with pesto dippin sauce.. yum yum) and up the road we went... all the way to BV where the heavens opened up for some rain and the temps dropped. brrr. We opted for Mormon down and then it was over. Like cru_jones Dan said... no blood and no mechanicals the whole time (except for Steve-o's chain drop woes). It was a great bunch and a perfect ride.

    Here are the only pics I took today. Last one is of Mike-e hammering along behind a roadie for a good long distance up San Juan road. haha! Who said DHers are lazy? Oh - and kuddos to Steve-O and Mike-e for doing this long ride on the bikes they also take on DH shuttles. You guys are super studs in my book

    Yeah!!!

    I actually met Kathleen on this same ride like 8 years ago and had no idea what I'd gotten myself into back then. I was beat down and bleeding in short order and ended up bailing out on that ride pretty early on so I had a score to settle today! I'm stoked that I finished it and didn't feel like curlying up in the fetal position when I was done!

    It was great riding with everyone and meeting lots of new faces! Perfect weather if you kept moving ... Thanks for the water Noel. Thanks for putting it together Kathleen!

    Maybe I don't hate National after all ...

    National crosses the San Juan road about a mile or so from where it finishes at the San Juan parking lot. I invite you to join us next time. You'd love the less-traveled side of National. and btw... I rode 36 miles today since I started at my house! Good day Tired now

    Oh man.... what a great ride, and thankyou Noel for the water.

    I think a lill part of my died on that road ride back to BV....my legs wanted to cramp up a few times from the towers to the 24st./mormon split.

    DG, I have a new found respect fer you er maybe that bike you were on. There were a few moments during my sufering I though of pushing you off yer bike and laughing as I pedaled away You are AWSOME

    Big shout out to LING LING (Joe) (brisco dog) fer pushing thru and letting me talk him into making it to the turn around spot, good riding with you.

    Meet some new faces and rode with some that were familiar and some that well,...... the photo tells it all with Aaron standing there looking for his baseball I think he found it on the road ride back to BV

    Good time and look forward to some more.

    The Sunday crew had an awesome day! We finished up a little before 1:30. No MAJOR mechanicals or bloodshed. Props to Maadjurguer for popping his cherry and riding strong (even with the knee issue) and Aaron for riding strong as well (since he is younger than me ) Happy 43rd Birthday FATTRAXX!

    I forgot my camera (D'oh!) so I have no proof that the ride actually even happened. It was a fantastic day!

    And I'll say we did a C2c2C, small c for turning around at San Juan Road instead of the end.

    Here's your proof....no shots were taken of the road, because it is unredeeming.....no shots of the descent back to Pima....because it is far too redeeming. Can anyone tell me if the towers make me look fat?

    This ride ruled!! I died on the climb back up the road but recovered at the top. This is one heavy heavy ride. I love it! Can't wait to do it again....well, maybe wait a couple of weeks or so. This ride is Somo at it finest. Far from the pissing an moanin of hiker/biker battles, off lease dogs, eco-terorists, and nazi trail runners. Do yourselves a favor and do this ride.

    You always look fat around towers, but not this time. Hey J send me this GPX and I"ll send you mine from Cave Creek. Deal man.
    I need to ride more and work less.

    Definitely! As an alternative to the miles of a C2C2C, we did a West end only ride on Sunday and it was a blast. Start at the BAPL, up Kiwanis, National west to San Juan Road, SJ Road back to the triangle, and Max Delta back to the cars

    I haven't done this ride in so long.
    Ever since my first FOTP ride I've tried to do it a few times a year.
