    I had to bail down Sunset to get to work.
    Cost me a rear tire. Sidewall cut. Barely sealed, opened up, pump and a CO2 got me back to the van on the rim...
    Still had fun.
    Riding in a t-shirt is how it should be in SoCal.

    OOOOOKKKKK,
    Bombers today were T-2, Redwoods, Pat trick, Mikie, John, Old School , Scottay, Rossage and myself. We opted per Ross's input to climb Brown to Millard, up the pavement to the Cape of Good Hope and up the dirt firewood to Inspiration. He was right no hikers to speak of. The pavement was warm and steep! Had not done that in years! We Lost Ross and John due to previous commitments and Scottay who just did not want want to burn himself out for tomorrows Mt. Lowe shuttle at The Cape of Good Hope .
    At the top we recouped and recovered. Mikie was on fire followed by Rick and I to the top. As we began the descent I was hit with cramps. Double cramps that is. Worse I have ever had. I was drinking Tailwind, pickle juice and downing Endurolites to no avail. Told the Bombers to go ahead .Middle Merrill and Sunset were not nearly as fun as I would have liked. Not till we dropped into Millard did things start to feel normal. Must have been the 2 days of Mammoth Boarding and skiing and then the ride, Thurs., Fri. and Sat straight through, oh well. Tom and the Pats dropped down The Chaney fire road to the road ride back to the car and Rick, Mikie and I finished with El P.
    The Merrills and Sunset were epic. Bigger rocks, ruts and drops after the rains. El p was good too. I am not a big fan of El P and all the stagnant water but it seemed better today along with the new kickers that were built. It got a little warm today but fortunately we had some cool breezes to cool us off. We picked up a couple tagalongs on the way. One shuttler and Fred from the area I believe. Fred hung with us but the shuttle guy not so strong. Interestingly Fred knew all of us by name. Asked if he could rub elbows with the Hooligans from IMTB, Kudos Mikie!
    Off to Rubios for the refuel and home in the 210 traffic, sorry T-2.
    For the finishers no crashes, mechanicals or injuries. Rick did trip over his own foot and flop drop and roll back at the car but he just laughed. Thanks a ton Pat for the cold drinks back at the car. You rock Dude!
    Ballllllllz baby, Got the moves like Jaggar!
    The Bomb Squad rocks Mt. Lowe!

    Guys, great to meet and ride wuth all of you. Yesterday. Thanks for letting me join such a great ride. Can't wait to ride with you all again, hopefully next time for the whole ride. Unfortunately the gathering at my house was pretty much a bust so I should've kept doing what I love.

    Super fun day in the San Gabes w/ a great group of strong and fast riders. That climb up the paved Chaney Rd. took its toll on quite a few of our group, we started w/ 9 and ended up losing a few here and there and ended up w/ just 3! It was a beast of a climb to tackle after so much time off for most of us due to the rain we been getting. As stated already above, the chunk factor was way up due to all the erosion, did'nt seem to slow this group down though, as we were charging, hooting and hollering all the way down Middle and Sunset and El Prieto. A few Pics forthcoming. Families are coming over now for dinner!
    Which way should we go?
