    Bozeman: Charlie's face this week?

    Now that I've got this silly little triathlon bug out of my system, I'm ready to start riding again for actual fun and enjoyment....instead of training.

    I'm thinking Charlie's face ought to be pretty good right about now. I'm also thinking of riding it one of: Thu night, Fri night or Sat morning.

    Anybody wanna ride along?

    Will there be massive amounts of climbing?

    Massive? No. About 45 min worth, though. You could ride out to the trailhead, instead of drive, if you want some exercise.

    After the 45 min of climbing, there will be 15-20 minutes of sweet downhill.

    Sounds like Garnet Mountain. 45 mins of climbing, 12 minutes of DH, repeat.

    Forgot to mention:
    I finally got all the various bits for my helmet cam together. So I can actually shoot some POV video of my rides now. So....I'll probably break that out for this ride.

    I would be interested in that. Thursday is out I think, ping-pong tournament at work. But Friday, or Saturday should be good. My lady leaves Friday for the weekend so I will be bored and biking as much as I can.

    If there are any other takers, just meet us at the Mount Ellis school parking lot (it's right on Bozeman Trail Rd) at 9 tomorrow morning. See you's in the morn....

    Ride should take 2 - 2 1/2 hours total.

    Here's a GPS track from one of the times I rode it last summer. Start at the intersection of Mount Ellis Lane (not to be confused with Fort Ellis Road) and Bozeman Trail road. Ride south into the hills.

    To all of those who ride the whole thing without walking, I'll tell you the same thing I told Ben: You're fvcking CRAZY. Those steep sections have some consequences if you don't get them just right.

    The creek crossing was interesting too.
