    @Cougar and I are doing Whiting-STT (Old Cramp?)-Luge-Whiting this morning (10/15/16). Meeting at 8am in the Wahoos lot. This does not rise to the level of a trailhead invite - just an announcement in case some lone cowboy or cowgirl out there wants to join us. Slow climbers. Adequate descenders.

    Couldn't find an appropriate thread for just throwing it out there without trying to put together a ride. Trailhead implies ride organization and ownership. I am not trying to do either. Feel free to close this thread Mikie if it's contrary to your intentions. (waving smiley)

    I love when someone posts up a last minute ride when I can't make up my own mind. I wish we had more members in my area. Heh heh...... I said member. Have a great ride!

    Wish I could've joined but still trying to get my legs/stamina back. Hitting Oaks this morning, as soon as I stop procrastinating on the internet. Have a good time up there!

    I don't own anything through a trailhead invite. We're all big kids here.

    I like the thread idea. Just a quick shout out of where you'll be.

    That said, we'll be at Snow Summit tomorrow. If you see us say hi and join us for a run.

    Great idea!
    There should be a place, like in the trailhead forum, where we can just throw up a ride invite without having to fill out a form.

    I am not going to ride somewhere tomorrow, but @kioti and I, and maybe @littlewave and a few others are going to go tidy up some trails in Aliso - namely Lynx. The braking bumps and center ruts are really bad on that trail, bordering on unsafe (in a bad way). We are not sure if there is enough moisture in the dirt to do the treadwork, but we are going to give it a shot. Don't worry, if it's too dry, we won't dig.

    Meeting at the top of Holly Leaf drive in Aliso Viejo at 8:30 am (closest you can drive to the top of Cholla).

    I was thinking sunset ridge / el pristine loop from Millard campground for starters and then maybe something else up that way. Any takers?

    None of my riding buddies texted me to ride this weekend. I can take a hint. :cry: :oops: :(

    I'm still gonna go somewhere though - tomorrow. Around 9:00 or whenever I can get up after a 15.5 hour day at work, and an hour of posting amusing quips here. :cool:

    I'm gonna ride in Temecula with Tinker. Well, maybe not with Tinker. But, I will see him every time he goes by... And he's usually very polite. So is Madeline Bemis... She's like Tinker with pigtails, and passes me at about the same pace. :p

    Actually, that might make a good thread - Great Riders Who Have Passed You On The Trail...

    Two weeks ago, Johnny O'mara and some Cannondale Pro passed @Cougar and me climbing Willow.

    I've been passed by Juliana Furtado, Ned Overend, Tinker Juarez, Rishi and Ranjeet Grewal, Aaron Gwin, Gee Atherton, Danny MacAskill, Melissa Buhl, Dave Weins, John Tomac (in downtown Durango) and so many more...
