    Finally got to check out Big Bear Skyline Trail yesterday . Got to Snow Summit around 8:30am and waited for the rest of the crew to arrive. We headed out a little after 9:30. We had a group of 9, I have to say it was a blast! I wasn’t ready for all that climbing but Vince got us to do the whole trail. 2E21C390-4028-4CD3-9049-CE8BF6293EB4.jpeg 4AC254E9-3AF4-4989-9072-CBCDE6CE30DA.jpegCAB0D910-F674-4887-A3ED-C84DA053F48C.jpegA9FD255E-ADA1-4F11-8B81-F123F6D35A27.jpeg0C767C97-B3DD-444D-BC59-1E6A7FC569B7.jpeg65131523-6CE1-4896-9201-2D44865EBA54.jpegBCABAA94-EA4F-496C-9FCB-9EB725C4BD07.jpeg6A38271D-F88C-4C44-BEAE-0F00DED1DD84.jpeg2DAF7BC0-5629-44FB-8198-2D3E3C6D0A98.jpegBFF2B0CE-073B-424C-AE01-939338B595BC.jpeg333CA8AC-9A79-4F1E-A7B4-6EC382B2EB17.jpeg454150FD-0DA9-4C5B-A431-F9CE1D0128E7.jpegB7E2C92B-4D19-4F01-AE42-1900B68E367E.jpeg18612EB6-CA56-469E-9D2E-CBC62FBC2264.jpeg0429C8EF-7811-4CC2-A742-8A91EC892156.jpegDB78B821-122F-483A-A658-F51081133FEE.jpeg79E6D9F0-685E-43D5-BB42-24C0AD59F654.jpegDF0F082F-63A9-4EDE-B657-31AD967B5A5A.jpeg

    Yeah, it was a great day out, weather was perfect! It was a bit chilly when we got there and also when we were leaving, but got warm when we got back down to the bottom of the mountain.

    Great pic's @ricke24. New dirt is always fun. I heard someone followed Vince... Hope he's OK. Amber looks like she's having a good time.:thumbsup: Bummed I missed out, next time. Thanks for posting.

    Oh, I beg to differ. When your beer freezes instantly, it’s too cold.

    I didn't ride a bike when I lived in Salt Lake City, so my beer never froze. :sneaky:

    JSD is ok, just ate it on a sandy turn. Amber had a blast but was almost given a heart attack by Vince when his bike almost went over the Rock, I think she took that pic,

    That was some of the best weather ever and a GREAT group of friends to ride with. Ricky and a few other Skyline virgins did excellent even with the (new to them) elevation challenge. Most of us were old STR riding buddies. I went up early to spend some time with the in-laws. It sure is nice not to have to drive down the hill right after finishing the ride. Burgers, beer and Sunday Night Football is a much nicer end to the weekend. All of Ricky's pictures are better than mine. Thanks for sharing!

    Great riding with you @OTHRider , love the new profile pic! I wanted a burger afterwards but ended up at some Mexican food place down the road that Dino wanted to eat at.
