    Had a blessed day on monday, clear skies warm weather and hall pass from wifey !! Got to BB around 10:30 got ticket and bike set up by 11am and the fun begins !! First 2 runs easy, trying to scout the turf, the 3rd one went to Westridge and spent almost the whole day there ;) got to meet a new friend also from Corona and talked to an old friend whose group had a casualty (broken wrist) did 8 runs total, one 15 min. Brake and had to change front brake pads on another run. Probably 50 or so peeps, got to see 1 young girl (6yr maybe) on a fs commencal really cool btw. Had some slips here and there, not a single scratch, knee pads worked beautiful, never slid an inch !
    Got water, coconut water, 2 beers, sweet bread and lots of ice on the car ;) after the action decided to get a pollo loco burrito and head back home with a big'ol smile from a day well spent on the saddle, life is good !! If someone has doubts of going to SS... Just take it easy the first runs and you'll love it !!! Thanks and hope you guys like the video, tried to short it the most I could but...anyways enjoy ! (5:12 mark)

    Pavers pavers everywhere! Looks like trouble if you drop a wheel to the inside of the pavers.

    Thanks for posting and glad you had a great day. I'm toying with the idea of a Skyline-Snow Summit-Skyline day on Sunday. I may save it for a weekday, however.

    Edit... Not sure about the beer choice though as I mucho likie the leaded Pacifico in a bottle...

    @Voodoo Tom soon will ride up north with you guys !! SS is a blast and with the skill level you guys have...man ! You just try it and you will be very happy you did.
    About the beer, well every time I get to go to Tijuana I got me a 12 pack of beer that is not sold here in the states... This one is the pacifico light..sometimes I get Leon, that is another one from southern mexico, pretty good indeed.

    I thought this post was going to be about your conversion to a single speed. After the initial letdown, it was pretty cool... :whistling:

    Seriously, though... Very cool. :thumbsup:

    I can only get away Sunday morning (early afternoon plans), but I might be able to swing this Monday. Let's touch base Saturday?

    @herzalot I can absolutely do Monday. In fact, my boss already moved a key meeting for me so I could go ride. So now I'm definitely taking Monday off to ride, be it SS or elsewhere! :p
