    The Plan was to hit Mt. Lowe but looked to be a bit warm on the front side. So Back to Chilao !
    This was not a tough decision , as soon as I threw it out there Redwoods said yaaaaaya! T-2 and Hillbilly were on the list. Was hoping Doug would get his Hillbilly aZZ out a bed early . Got a text at 5:30 A.M. and I knew he was in.
    We left at 6:30 A.M. ish and met Doug at a little after 8. We parked at the bottom of Silver Moccasin and proceeded to do 2 loops of hillier, Silver Moc ! 20.9, 3019 elev. with pins and grins all the way. Haulin the mail baby. Doug blew a corner and caught a Manzanita bush limb and donated to the mountain. Nothing serious, just dabbed some neo on it and bandaged it up, still at SB6 stoke "10" . T-2 bombin and railing his old stumpy , Redwoods killin it with the new Kona landed hard on a sharp baby head and cracked his new rear wheel, bummer. Good times and lots of weekend phkry! This ride Roooooocks!
    Baaaaallllllllz Baby!

    TtB, dish on that photo filter you're using. It makes wrinkles magically disappear. Could be useful to some of us here... :coffee::geek:

    The silver Moccasin trail head empties out into a campground. After we were finished playing mountain bike I brought up the question of what a great weekend could be had here, and why the hell I or we have not done it as of yet? Even a IMTB party? Is there any camping at the Floop? I heard it’s the best trail. :p

    No need to camp at the Floop, we can ride from the house, but I do see plenty homeless campers around... And it is an awesome trail. I rode it, in different configurations, four times in a row this week. Where do you think I honed my DH racing skills?!?!?! ;)

    If you camp at Horse Flats the Hillyer loop could end at your campsite. Ride up the road to Rosenita saddle and do it again
    If you camp at Chilao, the Silver Moc runs close to the campground.
    There are group sites available at Chilao and Bandito near Horse flats
