Monday riding

Matt and I got out for a little ride today.

And what a great day it was.

What say we ride Miller Rock from Raymond this Tuesday? We haven't been there yet and conditions will be prime. Beers are on me for anyone that cleans (no dabs or rests) the entire first climb!

Tuneup ride

Got a ride in today. A good one at that. I was doing a little preriding for our 10th Annual Lyons Fat Tire Fest this weekend. Had to make sure everything was at least moderately dry, right?

Skies were ominous. Seeing this at the trailhead as you're just heading out is not always a great sign.

Hit some connector singletrack
Saw some good views.
Did a little road riding. It was pretty windy and I got snowed on a couple of times. Cold, brrr.
It's not a mountain bike ride unless you're hiking, right?

Bacon makes a good trail snack.
Saw some really good singletrack.
Did I mention really good singletrack?
Ahhhh, singletrack.
5 hours later back at the team vehicle.

Tuesday Ride! If it's not super crappy weather wise, we'll be heading up the hill for our first Hwy 7 adventure of the year. With all of the suffering we've been doing lately, the climb up from Raymond to Miller Rock will be a piece of cake!

Bike shop at 5:30 and we'll caravan west and up from there. If it is super crappy, we'll have to resort to plan B.

You want more LHC, I give you more LHC!

To start off, here's a few shots of last weeks pain and suffering, before the fun parts started.

And then the fun started. Dropped right into the main funnel of all the big drainages at LHC. Wet and rocky. And steep.

Figuring we'd head to Left Hand one more week before heading a little farther up, I went out to do a little more recon today. Ended up hiking quite a bit. Good views for sure. Gives perspective on the steepness.
Open and legal baby.
Tuesday. Ride. 5:30 at the shop to caravan or 6pm (ish) at the LHC OHV entrance, lower parking lot. Hopefully the last LHC ride we'll have for a while. :)
