    Back to the desert! Mini bomb squad mid week ride. Ya I actually felt a little guilty riding during the week until, I met up with Redwoods, Hillbilly and then Kurt the P.C.E. shuttle master, then all was grand. Hillbilly was camping in Mecca in his new 5th wheel and let me know he was looking to hit P.C.E. Enough said. I called Eric, set up the shuttle and we met at the Imax on Palm Canyon. We load up and arrive at Pine view to a light dusting of snow on the trail and 38 degrees that felt like 50. Perfect! We lit out and well you know the rest. Bobbin, weavin, whooppin and hollerin for 27 miles. We had fun sessioning some of the tricky climbs and bombing the rocks. Cannot tell you how many times we just stopped and looked the sky and surrounding scenery and commented what a picture beautiful day we were blessed with. We hit the wash where Hillbilly hit the wall. He had not been riding due to the flu, but he finally made it out to the Oasis. He admitted he had not eaten much. After refueling he was feeling much better. Up to Hans and blasting down we hit the finish all smiles and giggles! The climb out to Cindy's was a grind as usual. We opt to finish with the big chunk since it had been a while and it is usually difficult to get people to ride this trail, but not today! With a wild Hillbilly and stout Redwood in the mix we were ready for the goods. This ending was great! Good flow with rocks, drops, tricky switchy's and fast single track all the way to the end. Great ride guys. No flats, no mechanicals, one Hillbilly flop drop and roll. Great weather and another epic under the belt. Thanks Doug and Pat, nothing like railing the goodness with you!

    I imagine his body hair keeps him nice and cozy. When Ross, Mike, and I camped at Pinyon the other day, we kept worrying that we didn't pack enough ice in the cooler and our beers would get warm by the time we got back to camp .

    Yah, I put on and striped layers 3 times on that ride, just a beautiful day for sure, and if you mean naked with no pads, they just don't make for a comfortable ride for anything over 15 miles for me, sort of distracting, makes me concentrate more intensely while dancing through the cactus farms and boulder fields. Last ride on my 32 Fox it's beyond burnt! The boys talked me into throwing a 36 Fox or Pike on the SB-66 for a new transformation, I can't wait!
