    So my last minute attempt to organize a full club ride didn't really work so me and @Voodoo Tom rode GE today.
    Started off in some howling winds but they quickly calmed down. Hit the trail at the top and it was on!
    Leaves and acorns carpeted the undulating singletrack, while g-outs and berms keep the speed at lunatic level. Both of us on hardtails had a great time, even though Voodoo cheated with a suspension fork.
    Watch out for encroaching brush and soft, sandy spots in the corners.
    We missed you @Mikie. Finished with some gut bomb burritos at Lupitas in Castaic.

    Yeah perfect day on the trail for a huge group of two ride. It was a fun pace that included cruising chit chat smack talk, hauling the mail and stopping a few times just to take it all in. Funny but I always get kinda bummed out when the last of the green turns to brown but then @rossage mentioned that he just loves coming around the corners and out from under the tree canopy and seeing the golden hills and singletrack flowing thru it. You know what he's right and GE was great in all her golden glory. Lots of the trail was covered with leaves and crackling acorns. Hardtails were fun and I wouldn't say that sorry ass 100mm thing attached to the front of my bike was cheating as much as Ross's tires that actually had knobs on them. Didn't miss slogging up the fireroad on the Hightower one bit. Major trimming has been done on the lower section and the middle sections were narrow and looking to make you bleed but certainly not too bad. Post ride burrito & beer(s) hit the spot. No pics...
