    Hope Pics from the long-distant past

    I was looking at some of the pics I've posted over the years, and I liked this one. From Rockville, 12-12-2010.

    Back in the day Finch was so good looking that it took no time for him to get a ride for us back to Tahoe meadows from chimney beach.

    JFR wrecked on his CX bike (on the ARBT) sometime last year and really messed up his wrist. Still working on strengthening it, but he's riding again.

    Thanks for the info on John. Hope he's doing ok.

    Is that trail still there? I must have left $300 worth of tools there thinking I'd be back to get them. Nope.

    Third from left in green is Bigtrees and Melt is far right. WG is in the middle somewhere. Pic from IMJPS.

    That trail gets more use now, thanks to a newish route from Mickey down to it. Fun/gnarly trail from top to bottom (bottom of Goofy). Still pretty primitive though.

    I believe I still have your mini-pick! (I couldn't sell it on CL for $10! ). Come up to EDH for a ride and I'll get it back to ya!

    Here's a good one- Jilm, JFR and I were riding Tahoe (Toad's, I think) and found these construction helmets near the trail.

    Edit: Wtf? Wonder why it's not showing up. Trying again. Toadly.jpg

    Edit x2: fc, I think I broke mtbr!

    Groups that size ALL on singlespeeds are gone.

    Group rides of all shapes and sizes are around for sure. It just takes more effort as everyone is 'busy'.
