    Saratoga Gap Saturday...anyone??

    Been Jones'n for this puppy since I rode it last year for the first time and am determined to see some sunshine this weekend, dammit!!! :mad2:

    Love to meet some other mtbr's and have some fun.

    Anyone interested, meet at the 9/35 parking lot at 11am this Saturday.

    The hubby and I aren't super fast, but we're super cool folk.

    Cheers!
    I knew I did not want to end up in a dark wooden box in the cold ground. If nothing else, at least I wanted to be buzzard shat on a rock in the sun.

    That was actually my first choice - but being the timid Coe Virgin I am, we're heading to a kinder, gentler ride. Heard some pretty scary stories about that area and want to make sure we go with a seasoned vet.

    Btw, did we meet you on the Epic 50 at Sea Otter last year?

    Was I a tired bald guy w/ goatee riding a red FSR?? if you answered "Yes" then I am that guy!! Boy!, that was a hard ride. One of the organizers told me that they didn't do the same route again this year because it was too dangerous...he mentioned 4 people had to be airlifted out - crazy huh?

    How are y'all doin'?

    BTW - the Coe ride on Sat is "not-too-challenging" Around 27 miles and 5K climbing (My friends version of an easier ride)....the people I ride with sometimes are maniacs.

    Wow! I hadn't heard about the carnage. I did notice the 40 mile route this year was a 20 loop done twice.

    I have some nice chain ring bites to remember it by.

    We ended up doing the roadie century this year. The back side of Carmel Valley is beautiful! I had no idea.

    Have a great weekend! Maybe I'll find some huevos and do Coe someday.
