The bench cut just after the bowl (where everyone says they flat), was a miserable mess late Sunday.
The first tight, right turn in the pines where the tree with the bark battle wounds (and is now leaning) was really bad. Not bad at all besides that.

The green double track from the p lot was of course a swamp. And Eric's mention of the truck tracks in the blue double track is bad too.

Dammit! This is what I get for listening to Nick. I saw his post last night and figured the ride was off so I didn't get my stuff ready before leaving for work this morning. *beep* you, Shue! I guess I'll have to go hit ILRA after I go home and grab my gear. Maybe next week.

I was mislead!... :wink: I was going by other comment about Stony being too wet to ride on Tuesday.

Well, I'm not gonna ride tonight. Broken frickin' spoke. No, Jake just can't scratch the itch I have. :-? Looks like a stop at the bike shop tomorrow.

If the broken spoke hasn't caused your wheel to go out of true it'll be fine for an evening.

Well, since I get to pay for all the damage, I'd prefer to prevent any further problems. I don't the wheel is out of true because I'm pretty sure the spoke was damaged from moving it into the house, while it was in the back of the Pathfinder, or something. No idea how that happened.

I'll meet ya for dinner though if you know when and where.

*SO* glad I was able to get the spoke replaced in time to bust over to the ride. :-D Mountain biking just feels so awesome. Road riding is fun, but nothing like mountain biking.

Maybe, you could probably get by without them, though. I only really needed mine after the Roller Coaster last week.
