    I ridden this version a couple of times now... wilderness riding.. and u get two, not one, awesome single track downhills! Can't go wrong! SART downhill is rolling, exposed single track bliss! But PO downhill is shorter, a bit more techy, and just as fun! Will think of you all while watching my daughter play soccer... oh man, miss me some SART...

    Would love to do this again but dealing with a medical issue right now. Did the last one (aka Auger) and it was a blast. if you are on the fence this is a fun ride. I'll do it in a few weeks.

    So, based on the route posted above....we will climb to Glass Rd. then take the SouthFork Rd up to the top of SART?

    Personally J, I prefer climbing the SART singletrack up to South Fork myself and that should be on the table IMHO...

    That is my preference as well.....I have climbed up from 7 Oaks before.....it is a lot easier, but not as fun nor as challenging.

    I would make this but I'll be overnighting up in San G.
    There's a possibility that I could ride with you people and then head up the mountain.
