    Climbing Boy Scout is what I wish the Santa Ana climbs were like... It's not steep and goes by very quickly!

    Is Wrightwood SS compatible? ........ I don't think so!
    Would the WW50 be more fun is it was only 32 miles long?.... Yep!





    Riding WW again would be awesome. I'll try to make it. This time I might bring a FS bike.

    That video from this past weekend looked awesome. I hope to make it up there to join you guys. I have a question though....I know this is a "social ride" but does a 9 am roll time mean anything close to 9 am?

    Usually. I'd say 9:15 is more like it.

    Thank you. That is completely reasonable. Sometimes it gets crazy with group ride. I do a shop ride in Hurricane every trip I’m there and their 9 am ride is lucky to start by 10. Last time I just bailed at 10:15.
