    "New" trails ridden at Auburn today.

    Johnny Freeride and I were unaware there are some pretty cool trails on the other side of the river. But now we know.

    Big Boulder was kind enough to show us around, and we discovered an old trail, that, with a little pruning, could turn into a pretty b!tchin' piece of singletrack. Loop all the stuff we rode together, and it might turn into another sweet Auburn destination ride.

    All told, there're fireroad climbs/descents, Mickey Mouse-like steep, butt-behind the saddle scary bits, great scenery, jumps, and yup- a few hikers & equestrians. But from what I understand, it's all legal. Quite a bit of poison oak, too.

    It was good to ride with JFR again. Steve (and Monique), many thanks for hosting the Auburn Spring Thing. I wish I could have made the Saturday ride, but... (where's the *shrug* smiley?).

    No injuries (except for Steve dragging his ass across a pointy rock), just a couple of mechanicals and lots of firewood made for a great time. Anyone take pics on Sat.??? Here're some of mine from today.

    1) One of the spectacular views. Steve & John are in the lower right hand corner.

    2) Part of the Secret Sauce trail. Looks like it used to be nice, but people may have just forgotten about it. With a few hours of trimming, it'll be very cool. Salmon Falls-like.

    3) JFR gritting his way down a steep MM-like section.

    4) Break time.

    5) Dorks.

    Sweet

    Ha, that sounds great but doesn't hold a stick to the 3 hours of mowing, 2 hours of house work and 5 hours errands I did today. It was sweet, I cleaned some 8" steps with the vacuum, carved some super tight corners with the riding mower, shredded some spiderwebs, and totally trashed some garbage.

    So was there ever a proper demonstration of the chair?

    I've been eyeballing that quarry for some time but didn't realize there were any trails over there worth anything. Steve's been holding out on us.

    Im jealous

    I had to bail on this ride at the last minute. I figured I should make an appearance at home if I wanted to go riding again this weekend. Looks like you guys had a great day. Those pics of the quarry are amazing.

    Your Sunday sounds a lot like mine. Mowing, hanging sun shades from the patio cover, moving patio furnature, trimming bushes, cooking, cleaning the kitchen, a Home Depot run.

    Just enough time at the end of the day for some muscat bianco in the hot tub.
    The glass is twice as large as it needs to be
