Due to the damp weather, let's change the meeting place to Hunting Hollow; we'll have more flexibility with our route as we ride and assess the soil conditions. Map meeting at 10am. It's still low-key and sub-epic. Sorry for the late notice.

The HQ Middle Ridge loop is a simple, fun-fun-fun ride...15 miles and 2,500' of climbing with a ½ mile of streambed hike-a-bike. This is low-key, and non-epic. A good Intro-to-Coe if you haven't been before.

It looks like we have a window on Tuesday to do this one. Last night, there was a little over ½" of rain so a drying period over Sunday and Monday should satisfy the 48 hour rule. Then Tuesday night, rain is likely.

As of right now, my plan is to meet up at HQ at 10am, hit the trails, and get back before the evening rain hits (the ride should take 3 to 4 hours at a casual pace). Let's watch the weather predictions to see if this will work...

You gonna update this thread, Charlie?

To whom it may concern: ride might move to HH instead of HQ.
Does this mean you'll be riding in Coe again Plim?!? The park will welcome you with open single tracks.

Yes, it is low-key, non-epic, plus another feature: cold! Looks like it's at or near freezing right now. Climbing will be your friend in these temps :)

It is not possible to slow me down. It's just a question of whether you'll wait a long time for me at the top of a climb or a really long time. :p

Thanks for the ride guys! And thanks, Charlie, for being The Captain, or the Brain, if you will, behind the ride. Based on the latest weather forecasts, it looks like this will be the one to close out the 2009 riding year. Although not an Epic, it was a Fun Scenic Ride (FSR). Lyman Wilson was a lung buster, but when The Pitch increased, I just kept thinking "Allez"! Unfortunately, Jim's Body Geometry was off, and he had to bail early. I hope your back feels better, Jim! We couldn't have asked for a better day for a ride. It warmed up considerably by the time we hit the trails. The weather would have been perfect for an Enduro ride had we been in better shape. It was a bit wet and slick out there in some spots, but Coe holds up really well, and we maintained Ground Control. We also got a great taste for the mixed terrain of Coe. We avoided any Big Hit on the techy sections, but we were all Rock Hoppers today. Other than Jim having to bail early, the only other casualty was when Charlie hit a Hard Rock with his shin. Looking forward to many more Henry Coe rides in 2010!
