weeknight riding league
« on: July 05, 2019, 09:59:32 AM »
from around 2000 to 2012 or so a group of us would ride Thursday nights after work from Piedmont. due to unfortunate events the group fell apart. It was always a great time so thinking of trying to get on started again if there is interest?
We met at the Piedmont lot at 4:30 back in the day but where and when can be worked out if there is interest. In the past we had 10 or so guys with about half showing up on most nights. typically had a beer or two after we got done, but that's optional  ;).
Let me know if you are interested, what days/places would work, etc....

Only 487 miles to Piedmont.  I'd be in for a Thursday night ride or two.    ::)

Was a Fun but Funky night last night …..

Tried to ride some stuff around Victoria last night with Mike and Arlen ….  It's still WET and there has been some spotty wind/tree issues.

All of us had some slight issues:
-    Arlen couldn't stay upright 100% of the time
-    Brad had to haul out the warrior princess in a truck because her plumbing sprung a leak
-    Mike tuckered himself out trying to navigate the "Pixy Stix Forest"

Yea, it was a great time

You could have been there

Another good night of riding!  Mike and his buddy flogged me so I was sweating like a pig …..   both Mike and the Princess are waiting for me to "UP" my game.

Trails are in pretty good shape. 

Who's in for next week?

It was a gorgeous night of riding. 

Fletch and I were both unfamiliar with the Schroeder region so decided to explore the single tracks in this area.  2/3 of them were fun and open.  1/3 were still fun but required beating the bikes through dead-fall.  There were a couple of trails where we got denied and had to turn around.

I went down twice and smashed my nuts each time!....   it was still fun ;)

It was another great night. In the end I think the trees may have won but we will try again next week!
