    Skeggs ride tomorrow. thursday 5:15

    The after work rides season is almost over. So quit fartin around with the keyboard and go for a group ride. It will be steaming hot in the valley but perfect at Skyline blvd.

    The ride will be at Skeggs. It will be fast and furious 5:30-7:30. Be ready to ride by 5:30. Lights will not be needed unless you plan to mess up or you usually do.

    If you are a ranger and you are reading this thread, you need to get a life and a job for an outfit with better core values

    We will have a B-ride. and or many bail out options. We just need a B-ride leader.

    We will then have a party at the lot afterwards. Bring some FOOD! It will be 80 degrees at night so hang out and do not rush home if you are not needed

    Who's in?

    I'll get you a Pliny too. I'll tell you the route in case you're late. But it's really all about the after-ride.

    I'll buy these:
    Top Beers on Planet Earth
    Score / WR Reviews
    1 Trappist Westvleteren 12
    2 Pliny The Elder
    3 Pliny The Younger
    4 The Abyss
    5 Founders KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout)

    Sweet. the route is this:

    سييرا مورينا
    الجادة الأفق
    الزهرة الزرقاء
    حتى مل جوردون
    حتى إقطع
    السمندر العملاق لأسفل
    حتى ليف رابط درب
    بدوره على نحو ليف رابط
    حتى ليف الشمال
    حتى القرار

    Hey, instead of going up حتى ليف الشمال, can we go to the next right and go up العملاق, that way we get a longer downhill on الزهرة الزرقاء.


    I kid you not, الزهرة الزرقاء means blue blossom!!!

    Crap, you're right!

    Plane plunges into Redwood Shores lagoon; body of 40-year-old woman pulled out of water

    By Diana Samuels
    Daily News Staff Writer

    Authorities pulled the body of a 40-year-old woman from water near a submerged twin-engine Beechcraft plane that plunged into a Redwood Shores lagoon this morning, officials said.

    Redwood City Battalion Chief Dave Pucci said it’s believed one or two other people had been aboard the plane and dive crews are searching in the lagoon just north of Twin Dolphin Drive for them.

    The plane left the San Carlos Airport at 11:50 a.m. for San Martin and went down less than 30 seconds later, Pucci said.

    Michael Phelan, who works in the Oracle complex next to the lagoon, said he was walking outside when the plane crashed. “First I heard it, the engine sounded very loud and very bad,” he said. “You can see then that something was wrong.”

    Phelan said he saw the plane make a hard right turn and then drop nose down.

    He expected to hear an explosion, Phelan said. “Instead, I saw a big mist” in the water.

    Phelan said he pulled out his cell phone to alert authorities, but immediately heard sirens. Firefighters from the Redwood City and San Carlos-Belmont fire departments responded to the 11:53 a.m. call of a plane down.

    “It was very disturbing,” Phelan said. “I never saw anything like it.”

    Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford told the Associated Press the agency is aware of the crash and sending investigators.

    Rod Cardinale, a paralegal at Grathwohl, Rauch and Cohen on the nearby Marine Parkway, said he was working when he heard a “boom.”

    He went outside to see what had happened and saw the plane in the lagoon near the Hotel Sofitel.

    “I just saw the airplane in the water upside-down with one of the wings sticking out of the water,” he said.

    Cardinale said a bunch of boaters made their way over to the plane and some dove into the water to try to help the occupants.

    Are you on the fence on this one? Show up. It'll be cool. And you won't be staring at super awesome photos later wondering why you never go to these awesome ride parties.

    It's 99 right now in Saratoga-Los Gatos. It's 81 degrees at Skeggs. You know where to find me.

    I'll be at Waterdog around 7. Can't make it up to Skeggs that early. Besides, I'm pretending to be off the booze for a bit, at least till this weekend...

    A sweet ride to cap off the summer!

    A bit much carnage and some of these mtbr peeps are getting too fast, but overall lots of fun, and the after party was very, very nice.

    Thanks to Francis for the libations and Kyle for the souvenirs.

    he, he... I'm not saying I don't like rangers. I'm just saying I don't like them spying on us on the ride threads so they know where to stake out the for the $400 speeding tickets.

    We just beat the ranger to it as he was setting up to do his speed trap on the fire road entrance to Giant Salamander.

    You never know. There could be a hiker out on GS around a blind corner on a steep switchback carrying a baby on a Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m.
