    Hot hot hot - Tuesday slacker ride
    Me and 2 other mad dogs braved the 95+ degree heat today and went to annadel for the slacker ride. Our goal to survive the heat was to seek out shady benches. It was too hot to take good pictures, so you are stuck looking at these.

    Crazy andy (crashmaster) and brown spot hide in the shade pre-ride.

    Here we are at another bench in the shade


    It's nice and cool in here

    It was hotter than stink but we still managed to have a good time.

    did you guys do the full 20 mile loop or just a piece of it??

    i still haven't ridden up there, looking forward to it. unfortunately my two main biking buddies have both moved back east and i need to find some other 'slow but steady' riders who want to take the trip up there (from the east bay). it sure looks like a fantastic place to ride...

    You can make all sorts of loops or routes at annadel - none of us have a tripometer, but we rode for 3 1/2 hours. Well, and rested too a bit at the benches. Did I mention it was hotter than stink? I think we maybe did 12-15 miles. Oh yea, I did some "resting" on the side of the trail as well, [email protected] soft dirt ;)

    Cohenfive, I'll let you know when I'm going up, I don't mind waiting, and I bet you aren't that slow if you ride briones all the time, I think those climbs are worse than annadel except maybe two quarry and rough go.

    This saturday!
    UncleMTB and I will be riding there at 10 am this Saturday (6/19). We do about 25 miles but I'm pretty slow, much slower than Impy. Plenty of places to bail too.
