    Ingredients for a perfect ride

    Some love the burn of the uphill, dustcaked nostrils and sweat in the eyes. Others want to unload, bomb downhill fast as they can, the world a blur around them.

    What Ingredients make up your perfect ride? What are the places, paces, people, time of day, type of terrain, etc that get you stoked?

    Naked tandem with a hot blonde. When I get thirsty she pours high end iced tequila between her breasts and let's me drink. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot....we're both wearing nothing but white Sidi carbon road shoes.

    I think I might've had my "perfect" ride a month ago.

    Ingredients:

    - Under 80*
    - late in the afternoon. Sunbeams ripping through the forest.
    - Had the trails to myself
    - Dry and very smooth single track
    - Bike was silent
    - I was in the groove
    - Took a little rest by a nice river bend
    - and MOST importantly I knew I was going to wash some homemade burritos down with some Switchback Ales afterwards...

    70 degrees, sunshine, low humidity
    30 mile dry trail
    decent climbs but not too steep
    smooth flowing 20-25 mph downhill with some small jumps along the way
    Group of 4-8 friends who all ride at the same pace
    Lunch at a trail stop
    Supper stop at a restaurant on the way home to talk about the day
    Shower
    Sleep like a baby

    Riding a trail that I've never been on and finding it to be a great trail.
    If ya ain't bleedin'...ya ain't ridin'.

    A long, lung busting climb followed by a brain rattling, high speed descent from the alpine down to the sage

    For me it would be temps in the low 80's and riding my favorite trail a fast flowing 15 mile loop with just enough climbing to keep everything else moving fast.

    I forgot to add "cracking open creek-cooled beers waiting at the bottom" to my ideal day. Got to end somewhere!
