    Ride Name: Magically Delicious! Lucky Charms; AKA Leprechaun!
    When: Saturday 8/4/18
    Time: 10:00 a.m.
    Where: Jackson Lake main parking lot
    Ride Description or Details:
    We'll ride the Leprechaun loop 1st to get that last, nasty climb over when it's a little cooler! Probably climb through the Lions' Camp too since it's shorter, paved and more shade! Back to the lake for an out and back on Boy Scout and perhaps add on Fenner Canyon Trail as well. Great trails with a mix of chunk, steepness and flow. The climbs are mostly tolerable!
    ~~~~~ Optional Details ~~~~~
    Meet Location:
    Jackson Lake main parking lot off Big Pine Hwy about 6 miles NW of Wrightwood.
    Skill Level: Intermediate
    Ride Pace: Social Cruise, Easy with Moments of Effort
    Type of Ride: Loop and out and back
    Rider Limit:
    None
    Anticipated Mileage: 14-16 depending on options
    Elevation Gain: Oodles!
    Ride Duration: 3-4 hours
    Previous Ride Reports: Somewhere out there!
    Possible Bail-Outs: Ride only the leprechaun loop and end at the lake. Turn around on Boy Scout any time you want. Opt out of the Fenner Canyon trail.
    Facilities: Worse than an interstate rest stop outhouse at Jackson Lake. No water.
    Food/water suggestions: It will be warm so bring a bunch of water. I'll have about 100 oz with some in my truck at Jackson to top off before the Boy Scout climb.

    H^B doesn't spill his morning gruel:gag: anymore. That new truck has a robotic arm that feeds the stuff straight to him through a feeding tube! No muss, no fuss:thumbsup:!

    Let’s not influence Mikie into riding to early, he may be just crazy enough to do it, so no!

    I am in, but have a serious case of the not wanting to ride blues. If I am not there on time do not wait. I will catch up if I am running late.
