Supposed to be raining off and on Saturday morning. Nothing we can do about it… except for showing up with our wet weather gear and smiling faces at the Kennedy trailhead (Kennedy Road @ Top Of The Hill Road, Los Gatos, CA). Time? I’m thinking around 10:00AM to fit people’s schedules in, however, if you need to come out sooner, perhaps you can get your balls-to-the-wall sub-20 run up to the tree before everyone else shows up.

Likely to show up:

• me
• Ancient Rascal
• Nelson34
• modbog
• mboldt
• LGman
• Brazilian Climber

Please respond such that we can know who to expect to join us. Squashy will probably be out at Demo doing trailwork, but we’d love to have him come along for our boring-ass fireroad climb party.

Holy crap man ... no rain gear here but we see in the morning. LG man may be in also. B. climber prolly not but I shoot him the thread now. Sunday would be sooooooooo much better of course. You prolly got the last sub 20 for a bit once that trail gets slow and wet.

Shitchya, I am in.... if I can make it. My wife is leaving me solo all weekend (can I get a **** yeah!?) but not sure when they leave...probably after 10 unfortunately. Would like to ride Sunday though so if there is a redo, lemme know...Sunday I am free all day! (Dirt too muddy to work with up at Demo after these rains)

Here's a little rain song to get you guys FIRED UP!

OK, I guess this means Bogdan is in. :rolleyes: For those who don’t know him, he is actually a pretty down to earth guy, and fun to ride with… just periodically makes questionable posts with 1980s videos that induce bile production.

It’s only what – a 20 minute sprint from your place to the Kennedy @ Top Of The Hill trailhead??? If you’d like we can wait up for you.

It's just that I can't leave on a ride until they leave which is looking more like 1pm. I might try to swing it though.

is that code? i was mostly kidding about the raining men thing...
“Code” for “unless you wanna end up like a drowned rat, it is highly advisable to bring along a rain jacket for maximum enjoyment of this ride.” :rolleyes:

Well, that didn't play out the way I expected! Around 2pm, the weather cleared up a little and I said, heck yeah, it's on. It was even a little warm so geared up light but wore a shell and arm warmers. Journeyed up El Sereno. All was good till I hit the trees...drizzle. No worries. Gate...light rain. No worries. About half way up the dirt I entered the cloud. Rain. Got up near the top...ligit rain and cold as heck (sorry about my ****ing language). Coming down in a down pour with numb fingers and toes, drenched to the bone. Great goddamn ride. Time to play some video games.
