    Ouch, I feel ya! I’ve had pre cancer and cancer spots removed...it’s surprising how much it can hurt! Sweating doesn’t help with the pain either, so heal up fast and get your booty out there for some soul healing!

    Yeah. High winds/fire danger will close it. Sometimes slides.

    WTF?! Doesn't anyone work for a living? I don't... and I expect someone to be paying into my Social Security fund!

    Joking aside... such nice pics. I'm experiencing trail envy!

    I did not ride but have explored the Ozarks. I thought they were mountains. I WAS WRONG. It is a giant plateau with massive canyons. Most have a creek or river at the bottom. It is all limestone. Limestone is wicked to ride on as the screed makes a glass like sound and the stones are very sharp. I have not found many trails yet but they will be 400-500 foot climbs with lots of damp roots.
    Happy backwoods trails

    Rwanda skipped that section this year, because it was too rocky after the rains.

    Looking at the elevation profile of yesterday's ride... it is interesting to compare it to my normal Harding ride, LOL. Similar total elevation, but almost complete opposite in terms of general profile and type of riding!

    But when I match vertical and horizontal scales... it looks a little different :)

    Next time we can add on Oso... Harding will seem flat after that one. :thumbsup:

    With the mountain closed, I'd like to try a Taco Plaza- Caspers- Oso- San Juan ride this winter. :thumbsup:

    Did a ChLoop quickie this morning. It was wonderful in the shade but heating up quickly in the sun. The skies are fairly clear today. I could see Mt. San Jacinto to the East and well offshore on the Pacific to the West. Plenty of other riders out and walkers/joggers. I stopped at my hairdresser's on the way back and got a trim.

    Same ride today as the first ride in this thread. Maybe different order. Definitely warmer today than that February day.

    4 ups, 4 downs - alternating. 5-Oaks, Cholla, R-I, Mathis, Meadows, Cholla, Lynx. 17 miles 2700’. Sunny - getting hot by about 11. Not too crowded - no interruption on descents. Bike worked fine. I have some plans up my sleeve for dialing it in.

    bikes are fun!

    Oso ends at San Juan. If you drive there, though, you’d never know. :whistling:
