    Heartbreak Friday 3/18

    Rolling at 8/8:30am for 20-30miles (4-6hrs) including Heartbreak. Route to HB will either be OTR or CCR depending on my mood on Friday.

    I might be down for a Friday ride, but I'd vote for an OTR route. Gravel just seems to suck all the soul out of me.

    I don't need too much convincing. OTR it is.

    So whata you think
    1 park at Kitsuma lot ride from there
    2 do a shuttle which would involve leaving one car at the geyser and taking the other up to the college

    Option 1 means riding through town several miles and ending with a climb out from the geyser area which is not too bad if we can carry enough water for the whole loop or carry a filter.

    I usually ride from the Geyser, hit OTR via Mill Creek Rd., Ridgecrest,then you finish with a big downhill for 20 miles. Optionally, I would refill water at the car then drive down to the picnic area and hit Kitsuma via Old 70 for another 10.

    Freaky fast singlespeeders with big mustaches are definitely allowed on this ride.

    Not sure i can swing a 30 mile day.
    SPD pedals are an absolute menace to the well-being of the world, and ought be banned immediately.

    2 downhill finishes.

    Sh1t, you're going too? Fryday looks nice, too. Might have to clear out some time....



    Cruso, do you have a window? Maybe you could be there at anytime between 1pm-6pm.

    I hate to say no, but I need to get an early start from the geyser. One option for you might be to meet us at the Kitsuma lot/Ridgecrest area. It'll probably take us 35-40 min to spin up Mill Creek which would put us there 9:10-9:15ish. We can wait for you there???

    I cleared out some deadfall for you on the way down. Hopefully you didn't have to stop as much as I did. Sorry I missed riding with you guys today. Maybe next time.

    Awesome day for riding for sure.
