I got out there today and rode my SS up and down U-Conn. I haven't gone down U-Conn in years, but it was getting dark and my SS is full rigid.

I rode up there last week with Denny and he pedaled the SWD all the way up U-Conn without stopping. :shocked: The guy is a monster. I just can't let him get a climbing bike now. He will destroy us all!

Can you ask him if he got a pic of a guy on a red enduro SL. i was going down, and saw a fatty flash go off, but didnt realize it was you guys. i rode with you guys at pacifica with mike a few weeks back, on the silver R9. woulda stopped and shot the **** a while, but was with a group of XC'ers (ugh) who didnt want to take any breaks.

Hahaha- Kelly's back up in Tahoe this weekend, looks like fate only wants us to bring one girl at a time. I'm up for everything but the wilder XC loop thing... :disgust:

I say we ride UC on Saturday a bunch starting around 9. Maybe one loop and then shuttling? Or just a bunch of shuttling. What do you guys think?

I'll be somewhere in the East Bay this weekend, man. Cool trails with GOOD climbs and FAST descents. I wanted to ride UC with you foolbags, but I like a little variety.

P.S. The Demo ride last night was awesome. You missed out.

Down-trees like crazy on Ridge, but on Braille it was smooth sailing.

Sorry I missed out on yet another night ride. I swear I want to do one. Especially after dropping some major skrilla on a light.

We'll be out at a trail called Briones. The trailhead is appoximately 15 minutes from the Walnut Creek Performance. Kinda' a far drive for you guys, but a great XC climb, and a great heavy-AM decent (fast and steep... then smooth and flowy).

It's a good time, and it's nice to get out somewhere a little different for a change.

Rain rolls in next week.

We might be able to pull off a night ride on Tuesday night at Demo.

Are you down?

Hey, I don't get on here too often...probably because I don't have it bookmarked *fixed that issue*.

I work the next two Saturdays but I'm off the following. Otherwise, I'm off Tue-Fri of next week.
