    Our little jaunt turned into a great Epic Day to include, Fault Line, a suh-weet section of SOT, Blue Ridge, Table Top, and Leprechaun (it was magically delicious)!
    23.2 Miles with 3,996 feet of climbing... Too late to do a ride report. Get the pics and the details up laytah!!

    Oh, and only one minor boo boo. A "fall-over" onto a pine cone...... uh, yeah, it hurts as much as it sounds. I would video me cutting off the dead meat in the shower but I will spare you that.... Ha hah. I love mountain biking...

    Thanks Maddog for a great ride today, and thanks Scan-da-Man for laying out an awesome ride!!!

    Here are some Pics:

    The simplest of moves. Never come to a full stop and fall over on top of a Pinecone.

    I know you will barely see this, but at the very end of the paved road on the right side just on the outside of the bend is a huge coyote, I thought it was a wolf. The Big Bad-Azz Wolf!

    PO was minimal, trail was in great shape! A great ride for some over 50 y.o. riders!

    We rode so fast the PO didn't have time to attach.... or, we were riding so fast we didn't have time to see the PO. One or the other...

    After recently riding Lucky Charms with closer inspection, the green stuff growing around the trail I'm happy to report is not PO :cool:

    That was a great ride! Mikie, you must delete that one picture of me. I rarely am happy while climbing and don't want people to get the impression that I like the climbs! :eek:
