sundays ride

sleeping child drainage....it's a fantastic slow speed, highly technical ride that seems to be always throwing manuevers at you in the ways of large, slippery pieces of granite....some covered by ground cover. Scree fields also litter the trail and demand mucho concentration if you're going to attempt to cross them pedaling. It doesn't see much usage at all so the vegetation growth always starts to take the trail back during the spring. Love it, most leave it. Here's a couple pics of Joe-joe showing us how it's done. I should also note that our good pal Rick started the ride with us only to have a sram X9 rear derailleur take a crap on him only 200 yards into the trail. Ride was pretty much over for rick at that point, but i must commend him for keeping his cool and not tossing the $75 derailleur across the stream.
