    West Side Night Ride?

    Anyone interested in starting one? FINs, Estrella (behind PIR) or White Tanks?

    FINs has no time restraints and is pretty night friendly.

    White Tanks and Estrella - Park Hours
    Sun-Thu: 6am-8pm (Not sure if they'll lock you in at 8pm or just close the inbound lane like at some parks)

    Fri-Sat: 6am-10pm


    I'm pretty open to times and days...

    White Tanks Friday?

    Hey Luckybastard, I Just discovered these mtbr forums, very cool.

    I would be down to check out WT on Friday. The sign says trails close at sunset, but do they really enforce that? I just bought a new Light and Motion Stella helmet/bar light and looking to test on trail. Maybe get to trailhead 730ish for a sunset/night ride.. let me know

    Do you know where Estrella Mountain Ranch is? It's up there, best trail system on the West Side (not counting Goat Camp at the White Tanks which is the best trail, but a 3-4 hour winter ride) IMO.

    Do you know what time they start? I remember it used it be pretty early, which made getting out there in time almost impossible for me.

    I rode with some of them a couple years ago, most those guys were pretty damn fast.

    I think I might have something going on Friday. I'll check and post up either way.

    I went out there with a buddy this Saturday and got there at a little after 7:00pm. It was great. We only did one long lefty loop but skipped the last switch back climb. My friend hadn't rode in 10 months so he was dying. We had a couple beers at the truck and didn't see a soul out there when we left at 9:00ish

    Fins Fun

    Every Thursday for years.
    Moving to Friday's w/my boy playing Football at for EMHS.
    PM me for details -- where ya' been?!? I pulled ya' from "da' list" as you hadn't been here in so darn-long.

    Again, PM (or e-mail me: [email protected]) for details and I"ll add ya' back. (Or show up again tomorrow night here -- like you USED TO! -- ready to clip in and roll-out at 6:30 pm!)

    We/I just got mentioned in Jimmy's article in MBA this month. He said he was doing putting it in; and it turned out okay.

    Harv out.
    * BTW: A head-honcho for Newland owns a Nomad and "can ride it" and dug what we've done out here.

    Ciao' bud.

    Sorry, Friday isn't looking to good for me. If I can, I'll try to let you know tomorrow. You might want to check out FINs, sounds like they are riding on Fridays now.

    No worries. If anyone else wants to check it out let me know. I'm going to shoot for 7-7:30
    I actually hit FINS this morning. What a sweet loop. I'm thinking WT for my virgin night ride. There is gonna be a BIG moon too!

    Ya. Started the solo night ride at about 8. Rode the inner loop (no tech or SBs) stopping for an awesome lightning storm show. New light worked out awesome and I had a blast. It was slightly sketchy riding alone at night but maybe next week sometime some peeps can come with.

    I may be hitting Trail 100 or WT again Sunday night with a friend if you are interested.

    Peace
