    Riding The Plunge Sunday...place to eat?
    Looking for food suggestions for dinner sat. nite and breakfast before the ride. Staying in a RV park, so food needs to be fairly close by.
    Any other MTBR'ers gonna be there?


    Thanks!

    There is actually a really great brewery (with full menu) in town - check it out - we enjoyed it when we went there in June:

    I don't know about breaky, we just made our own, but I'm sure a town like that has gotta have a diner with eggs & pancakes.

    The brew company is awesome, ate/drank there both days. Cheryl's diner across from MRA is open for breakfast at 0600, good eats there too.
    Matt, the trail was good, a lil dry and rocky ( and cow pattyish...) , but good. The lowest section burned, so it was real dusty and will prolly be a rut after the rains come. Another fire started in Bodfish area so we had to drive home towards the 14 instead of Bako.
    We met some of the Bicycle Johns crew up there, and also Dave who runs the Mt. Wilson shuttle and Paul, who was making his 12th shuttle this year!
