    I think this is a mountain bike ride. I’m bringing the DV9 because Skyline would be perfect for a hardtail. Bring what you got!

    I understand that but there is a brotherhood in play here that can't be distributed. Unfortunately, your not part of that even though I keep trying to convince you and Voodoo to join. It is the brotherhood of the "One is all you Need". I want to make sure I am keeping committed to that. So if my fellow brothers are bringing their steeds I need to bring mine.

    It would, for sure, but we have a limited window of childcare availability and have to stay local. And before we plunk down some serious coin on a bike, I think there may be more value in giving her a better taste of what everyday riding looks like. I'm trying to keep my game face on here and not let on that I'm as bummed as I am to be missing this ride this weekend.

    Childcare? Your daughter should be out earning her keep by babysitting others!


    OK, maybe not yet.

    I dunno Bugg, I think the fact that your spousal unit is stoked on riding and wants a bike definitely outweighs the disappointment of being so close to @Mikie and still not getting a hug. Besides, it looks like it's turning out to be a brofest of "who can bring the most challenging bike to ride..." Good luck beating @Grego's 2-spd beach cruiser from 2018. I think one of you manly men should ride a kid's pushbike!

    It was just reported to me that the Snow Summit Parking Lot is closed with No Trespassing signs.

    So open to suggestions. Certainly not a disastah!

    The fire dept is using the parking lot for drills. They have their garb spread out all over the place and the lot looks really rough. As though they are about to resurface it.

    Or we can just park in the lot in the Village.

    Doesn't Pine Knot require an Adventure Pass. Otherwise it is just find a spot on the side of the road.

    Whenever I go to Summit I park here. I have no idea if it is open, but it is a good sized lot. Exit BB Blvd onto Summit and take the first left.

    Pine Knot is a tiny lot, and will likely be full at 10 AM.

    If it is open ... but I can't see any reason why it would not be. It is free Summit parking year round.

    Regardless of where everyone parks, we should all meet at the entrance to Summit.
