    I may or may not ride this, been down with some hell flu for over a week, so this might be out of range for my lungs.

    Probably last one of these before it gets real hot back in this canyon. No dawn patrol and no late afternoon hours means riding in mid day sun, get it while you can!

    Brett, kick that late-season bug asap. This season was a doozie. Give it its due; trails will be there awhile. :thumbsup:

    Is registration required for open access days? It says there is 68 spaces left, but also says registration is closed...
