    When: Saturday June 22nd
    Time: 9:00am Roll Time
    Where: Sandberg, California
    Ride Description or Details:
    Awesome epicness beyond mental compare, I’m talking about Sara, the trail is pretty nice as well!
    Figure on 20 miles with about 3000 feet of climb, with often a canopy of oak trees with brilliant green clover beneath. 5 miles of fire road climb and the remainder all Singletrack, crazy miles upon miles of views with a fast and flowy epic finish right to the Trailhead and vehicles! Talk of a Barbecue right afterwards and there will be beer and stuff.

    Those concerned with fitness? No worries, do what you can and we will meet you back at the Trailhead.


    Bring a gnat net just in case!

    GE, beer & possible BBQ and some great friends to celebrate our pal Sara and all she's been thru to make it back to riding on dirt, I'm in unless hell freezes over before next weekend. I'll probably have 2 or 3 empty seats in my truck if anybody wants to leave a car in Castaic and roll up with me...

    I'll bring some of this...

    Somewhere in the universe (and maybe even out of the universe) there are a few stars that could align for me to ride with ya’ll. Probably more likely if I include the stars out of the universe.

    The wife got a brand new titanium knee this past Monday. She's improving every day, but it just isn't in the cards for me to take an entire day this soon. Maybe in the fall sometime. :)

    @DangerDirtyD Are you a daddy again? On Fathers' Day? Or not yet?

    As for the point of this thread...
    I am sorting through my sock drawer to see if I can make it all work out in time to join in next Saturday. Stay tuned.
