Thanks for the photo. JR, it was good riding with you, Joy, and Nils down some great singletrack. I think that's the most continous downhill (about 5000 feet) I've ridden without a shuttle. I ate tons of food at the Thanksgiving table, guilt free.

PM me or post something in the NorCal forum if you happen to get up this way.

For those interested, I rode the Harding / Holy Jim loop Thanksgiving morning. After a solo grind up to "four corners", I met up with a handful of friendly SoCal mountain bike locals and continued up to the peak of Saddleback mountain and down Upper Holy Jim (where I had no shame in walking sections) and then down Holy Jim. From there, it was a bit of a hump back to the car, especially since I was running a bit late and was pretty well spent.

And just for kicks, a couple of ride videos (not from our ride), courtesy of Winston, of Upper Holy Jim and Holy Jim:

brutal. Is there a geoladder site for nor. cal?
Well, it wasn't too brutal, since I took it fairly slow and used my low gears. The singlespeeders never cease to amaze me, though.

I found the geoladder site really helpful for getting detailed trail info for some of the local southern california rides. I'm not sure if there's anything in it that would prevent people from adding Northern California routes, though. Obviously if there was as much interest/use up here, they could possibly add a different site or more regions. My feeling is that most of the routes were probably mapped out by a few dedicated riders, potentially affiliated with the site.
