So you guys...

were the ones that we bumped into at the top of sugarloaf on Sunday. I remember the Turners . We saw the B-17 (or is it a B-21?) flying low too. Looks like you guys had a fun weekend!

edit: Jane's says it's a B-17 alright.

We were up there on Saturday. Sunday was spent recovering, sobering up and applying more Tecnu.
Right. I meant Saturday. Felt like a mellow Sunday ride (small park - probably the least riding I've done in a while) that's why I mistook the Skyline ride as a Sunday one.

Yep, that was us/you! Just looked at your post and remembered me commenting on what looked like poison oak hanging from the rear deraileur of the blue Stumpy. Turned out it was a fern... Some of the climbs got technical, only because of the poison oak where you had to consider both line and pedal position. Only one Tick in our group.
Small park for sure. Couvie took us on a round about trip that included a hike a bike up the switch backs on Sugarloaf, then down the front side where we saw you guys. The promise of a long descending route seemed the opposite which is cool, but next time he says go Left.... we all decided we will go Right. He flips a mean flapjack though, so we gotta keep him around.

We got back to camp early so we began our evening at 1 pm.

Cheers!

The ride - Dork

Hey Jeff!
The PO on Oathill was not all that bad, definitely made some contact with it, but not nearly as much as Skyline. The ride kicked ass! Fun climb and ripper descent, at least in my book. Yes, Crash bailed out on us once again. Might have had the promise of a date or something along those lines. Gotta talk to that boy about his priorities. He's had his new bike for over a month and I have not ridden with him once. He brought it by the house on day 1 for some show and tell, then poof... gone.

...there is no s/t on OHM. :skep:
Man, I am looking at the Day Two Pics. It shows what LOOKS like Singletrack. That is why I asked if it was OHM or somewhere else. If were not trying to clown so damn hard you could see how the question was asked. Obviously I have not ridden up there so I would NOT know. That is why I am asking.
