    If you're up for Motorway, I can drive... You won't be far from me. Morning works.

    Or Old Camp and Luge... You pick.

    Wait, 4,000’ of climbing! Do I need to arrange a shuttle driver, or is Zilla going to take us?

    There are two ways... Black Star to Motorway, which is the big boy ride. The vanilla version, with no extra credit, is 26/4200. It feels like more, because you're basically climbing for the first 12 miles, and then there are several ball buster climbs on Main Divide after that. The second way is Maple Springs to Motorway. It has fewer ball buster climbs, and you get some up and down at mile 8ish... The worst part of this version is the pavement in the first 3 miles. It sucks, and it gains 900 feet. :sick: :gag: We'll park just below the Maple gate, and it works out to 17/3600.

    We'll probably be there around 7:45 if anyone else is interested.

    Cisco’s Sunday ride.
    Meeting at JPL at 7:00am, on N Windsor along cinder block wall.
    Carpool up to Clear Creek
    Strawberry peak loop to Redbox
    Redbox to Valley Forge
    VF to Gabrielino and back up to Redbox
    Redbox to JPL vía Gabrielino
    Distance & elevation: 30/4500

    Chit chat pace so some hands can be held if requested.
    Water available at Redbox which we visit twice on this route.
    Come watch @Cisco Roots forget what warm weather and dry dusty, loose, exposed trails are like :eek:

    I have two: Minimal snowfall. :unsure::stop:

    Hope to ride North Table Mtn. It’s one of my four pedal-approach areas, only one I haven’t ridden yet. Not much black trail there, but it looks scenic :)

    I'm riding tomorrow (it's Veterans Day, so the wife just has to adapt), I just don't have a plan yet. I'm good with riding alone - heck, I do that a lot - but is anyone else doing a large-ish ride tomorrow and willing to drag a boat anchor around?
