    So glad to be a part of this little bike scene we call IMTB!
    And, @Mikie , I got home with Mrs. Watson’s cookie and my kiddo destroyed it in about 10 seconds.

    What a great day on Golden Eagle today, glad I could make this ride. Met some more cool people on the forum, IMTB peeps all super cool:thumbsup: This day would start off sunny not hot w/ a cool lil breeze all the way through the entire ride making this group ride even more cool:cool:

    Only have ridden this trail once before it still as nice as the first time I road it, the fireroad and singletrack beautiful views all around you. The fun that was had by all today off the charts just an awsome day! and @mountaingirl sara well she is such a cool person, I think she healed up pretty good she kicked some but on the trail. Welcome back Sara:)

    @Mikie going over the plan for today's route.

    Cant get over just how sweet this single track is, you get some downhill riding it out and back which makes it so fun! and the shaded canopy of trees a plus.

    Even the not so shaded singletrack is just plain gorgeous!

    After the last decent the singletrack gets to good to stop and take pictures, but one picture I took that was well worth it was the special brew waiting for Mikie and the rest of the IMTB crowd was this Golden Eagle beer that @Voodoo Tom purchased a local brewery in Valencia.

    What a day this was, thanks to everybody for pitching in for the bbq thanks to @Mikie for cooking everything was delicious! What a memorable day.

    This has to rank up there with one of the best social rides I've ever been on. "Social" pace climbing to the singletrack then an actual social pace on the singletrack itself. I really enjoyed dialing it back a notch and chit-chating with everyone. As far as the final descent goes I was definitely all over the place. I felt like I over-braked at every turn. Oh well. Still a great ride.
    The after ride festivities were a blast. Thanks to everyone that contributed.
    Again it was so great to meet @mountaingirl sara! Such a positive attitude and a great rider to boot! Now I can say I know two awesome mountain bike chicks!
    Well it looks like @buggravy and I need to collaborate now for a ride in the Santa Monicas. Unless the Mega Floop is first? :whistling:

    Does anyone have the stats on yesterday's ride? My Runtastic seemed optimistic at 17.3 mi and 3300'. My legs said about 2500'. It's funny, my Runtastic matches the STRAVA readings in Aliso and LCWP, even Whiting, STT, Luge... but when I go deeper into the Santa Anas it's waaaaay too optimistic. For example, the Maple Springs-Joplin-Luge run said something like 4200' and everyone else had about 3400.' Maybe I get more credit because I'm a Clydesdale...

    Pretty accurate gauge Herz! So true how we can "feel" the elevation amount sometimes.
