I'm doing a 3-4 hr loop at Skeggs on the 4th. Aiming to finish by 1:00 at the latest.


Tafoni > Fir > Resolution > ECdM Creek > North Leaf > The Alternative Leaf > South Leaf > Star Hill Rd > ECdM Creek back up to Skeggs point.

OR

Fir > down Manzanita > fireroad to top > down Steam Donkey > Crossover/Crosscut > up Manzanita > Fir > Resolution > ECdM Creek back to Skeggs point.


Who's in?

I might be interested, although I have a creaky bottom bracket and a squeaky rear brake (when climbing) which drive me absolutely bonkers.
I can deal with bike noises - it's the human noises that drive me bonkers.

8 is too early.
9 is just right. :thumbsup:

I know I don't know you, so come on out! We'll shred like Wayne and Garth, then climb till we're mental.

Thank you wddung for organizing this ride. We had 11 riders, I think we all went home happy! Below are a few pics.

A little bit foggy at Skeggs Point @ 9am. Passion Trail Bikes was closed for the 4th of July holiday which is why we see Charles and Berry:



Attacking the root obstacle on Resolution Trail:



Pace line up the El Corte de Madera Creek Trail approaching the North Leaf intersection:



shredchic & audi0phile on The Alternative Leaf:



Our Ride Tyrant, wddung, on South Leaf:



backpedal, same spot:



Berry was a little wounded on South Leaf:



The route out: start Skeggs Point > CMØ1 > Tafoni Trail > Fir Trail > Resolution Trail > El Corte de Madera Creek Trail > North Leaf Trail > Methuselah Trail > Alternative Leaf > South Leaf Trail.

The return trip:South Leaf Trail > Alternative Leaf > Methuselah Trail > North Leaf Trail > El Corte de Madera Creek Trail > Tafoni Trail > Fir Trail > CMØ1 > Skeggs Point

3:00 / 1:55 / 12.59 miles / 2,073'

I didn't notice Berry had blood on his leg till we arrived back at Skeggs Pt. No whining from him on the way up & out.

The climbs on South Leaf are challenging traveling southbound and northbound. Here, audi0phile lost control on more than one occasion...

shredchic, how's that sting on your back? All I suffered were a handful of leg mosquito bites during regroups around the Leaf trails. Next time I'm wearing repellant.

I reset my computer when we rolled from Skeggs Point. 2:44 / 1:38 / 11.83 miles. How did you get another 0.76 miles on me?
