I took my wife down Guaje Ridge today for her first time ever. We rode our SX Trails so the techy stuff would be a lot easier and she loved the ride! I put SPD pedals on my bike and forgot I had Crank Bro.s clips on my shoes :madman: but the clips held in OK on the descents and only made for difficult climbing. It was a casual cruise on a beautiful day so I took a lot of pictures. The trail was in excellent condition :thumbsup: with only four down trees in one small area near the end of the trail. I heard there were locust thorn bushes so we took armor but we ended up only needing the knee armor because they weren't very high yet. Hope you enjoy the pics:

Son Ben took us up to the ski hill in his (tecnically my) new truck. I just noticed his Silverton shirt he was wearing matches the stickers we just put on the back windows:

Thanks for the report Neal! I haven't been down GR yet this year - hope to fix that soon.

I always take three bears out, adding cabra down to rendija and having to climb out is a bit much. You guys are animals!

When you get to the end of Guaje and Cabra's right there, it's hard to pass it up :D ! That and you probably climb Quemazon/Pipeline to start it off instead of cheating from the ski hill like we did ;)
