    Hi guys,
    Calling All Mountain Bikers...Please come join us, SHARE it and invite others!!!

    You’re invited to the Black Star Ugly Sweater and 3rd Annual Holiday Ride & Food Drive! We know you’re going to get busy, so please mark your calendars now for Sunday, December 17th @ 8 AM! You won’t want to miss this event! **Please be sure to read the whole invite for important information.**

    Please sign up to join here:
    https://www.facebook.com/events/478949609144097/?ti=cl

    The event will be held at Blackstar (18.5 miles, with 2400 elevation gain. It's an 'out-and-back). Your food donations will benefit Pathways of Hope located in Fullerton! They will be on site to collect your donations!

    Please wear your ugliest Christmas sweater (it’s gonna be cold), and come on out for a great morning of riding and community service! We’ll meet at 8 am, and at 8:15 am the Executive Director of Pathways of Hope will welcome everyone and say a few words, we’ll take a group picture, and from there, you’re off to enjoy your ride!

    Donations: Please bring things that are easy to store: beans, rice, soup, pasta, canned goods, etc.! Every bit makes a difference. Even if you don’t donate, come out and ride with us anyway! We’d love to have your support!

    * Park on the side. Make sure you don’t park in front of a No Parking sign.

    We are blessed to be a part of such an amazing community of cyclists! We look forward to seeing you there!

    A big THANK YOU to: Fullerton Bicycles, La Habra Cyclery,
    Rock N' Road Cyclery, The Path Bike Shop, Jax Bicycle Center, SOCMTBR, Trail Angels, AMTR and Voz Cycling!

    I'll have to just calendar this since I don't have an ugly Xmas (Or any other kind of) sweater.

    And I don't do Wastebook. ;)

    You don't need a sweater, you just have to be ugly and sweat. Works for me.:bang:

    If someone wants to shuttle me up or loan an ebike I will dress as the Grinch and descend in an inappropriate manner and with great timing to meet the group climbing.

    Hmmm... On second thought, maybe I'll pass. It says "STR LIFE" on the doll's belly. Too kinky for me! :p

    This just looks like either a) everyone was taken up by aliens for a probing, or b) all the bikes said f*** it at the same time and just lay down.

    Proudly worn!

    I prefer not to mix my partying with my bicycling. One first, then the other. It IS important to get them in the right order, mind you.

    I remember that. He got a lot of sh!t for that. I showed up early and did a POW lap up first.

    I hadn't ventured past Live Oak in O'Neill when that photo was taken. That was the only trail I knew, and I couldn't pedal all the way to the top. :oops:

    but brownie deserved it as he was the only one that I remember that turned back. It was real cold though and I think it even hailed, but someone brought patron to warm up. Good times!

    Found the ride report on that other site (lotsa dead links, but some good pics). Mikie. you can delete the link if you wish.
