    I don’t remember what brand they were... They were at Performance. Most comfortable jerseys I’ve ever worn.

    This isn’t the Who’s Not Telling Where They’re Riding thread... :p Rubber down, ‘dog. :thumbsup:


    PS: This from a rider who doesn’t mention trail names in his reports... :geek:

    Sadly, I have a shuttle driver. :unsure: After decades of all sorts of abuse, my sweetie's knee is exhibiting signs of needing a good meniscus scoping. So we'll just take a nice drive together...

    To the Tahoe Rim Trail, Big Meadow TH (down south on the 50). :sneaky: If I can get to Tahoe Meadows TH (Mount Rose) at the north side, that'll be ~70 miles of TRT. I tried once last year and got shut down at dusk when a rain squall rolled in and killed my attitude. Decent chance I can get it in the light this time of year. My last ride was not infused with Tailwinds, and I had gas in my tank after 11 hours. The hardtail/SS will work just fine; negligibly more difficult than my geared FS, as I've been discovering.

    This ride, except no Tyrolean DH at the end:

    Nice... :thumbsup:

    Why the 10 mile out and back at the beginning?


    Edit: And I meant nice about the ride... not about the knee issues. That part doesn’t get a like... :thumbsdown:

    Thanks, Steve. That knee has chicked me on too many hikes to count. Rides, too. It was incredible how fast one pint-sized hiker can move downhill. The price of it seems to be coming to bear... Common problem/fix, NBD, I'm guessing.

    That 5-mi out/back section runs into the PCT. The logical (only?) way to ride it is out/back from 89/Luther Pass Rd (not 50 as I've said). I stash my pack and pick it up on the way back. It's a nice section that runs through Meiss Meadow and by Round Lake, some fast fun in both directions, minimal HAB. :thumbsup:

    I have a route in mind... Actually I have two routes in mind. We'll see which one comes true!

    Both are in the San Gabes... :D

    Plan is Harding to Joplin, but is it wise to go it alone? I hear stories of the kitty cats...

    @mtnbikej, sounds exotic!
    @Faust29, sounds intimidating!
    @DangerDirtyD, sounds like a fun solo run! Thumb to the eye if it comes to it.

    @herzalot, like nothing ever happened! Stay safe, enjoy.

    I'd worry more about the poison oak. But if it hasn't been raining, it might not be hanging onto the trail like a few weeks ago...

    I'd love to come join you, but your start time isn't doable.

    Yes, along with $1 million Policy for each, but the underwriters don’t like it when I ride safe.

    I’m thinking I’ll mount the portable speakers to the pack and play some tunes out loud as a deterrent if I’m solo.

    Seriously tho, I’m an emanating, secreting, ripe organism that attracts many predators. Particularly the mosquito.

    Heck yeah! It would make for a more adventurous ride which would make for a more bettah RR. And, you won’t be alone. With the beaches closed for the holiday weekend, the trails are gonna be SLAMMMMED.
