We had a nice ride with good eatin afterwards in the parking lot.

Now that we're into summer, the days are longer and so is the ride.

This week, we'll make some crazy loops of it all. Last week, 1/2 the group did 2 Peter's loops. This week, we'll be at 2.5 loops, but mostly in reverse. Plus, we CLIMB the wall at Peter's Creek bridge, so bring your singlespeeds :D. Everyone check your Thomson faceplates before the ride.

Gap-Longridge-reverse Peter's loop-down South switchies-double track to lower Peters Creek-up S. switchies-full Peter's loop and back to car. :cool:

Then let the eating begin.

Full route should be ~18 miles and ~2400ft.

I'd love to but the NBA draft is this Thursday! Go Warriors!
We've hit a new low here for excuses :D :D

I'll be there. I was at the Gap yesterday and had to granny back to the car on the pavement. I had a chest bug and a migraine and it was no good!

I'm a basketball fan too, and would have been one of the only ones here to accept this excuse; however, the warriors should be picking sometime between 4:30 and 5:00. :p

Me, I'll be on my way to the airport..

I can't make it. But I like responding to rides I have no intention of going to.
:drumroll:

Congrats on dominating your 24 hour race! Now it's IPA time.

Switchies? I'm CHUM. (CHUM can now be used in place of: slow, ugly, fat, confused, fast, awesome, skinny, hungry... It's kind of like the Smurfs used the word "smurf". )
Didn't we do tree farm last week? I don't recall any two-loopers.

I just can't see wasting a perfectly good single track descent. Clockwise bombing down [staying within posted limits of course] a resonably tight trail then climbing the boring switchbacks at the pond is the way to go

Ooops, right. 2 weeks ago we did 2 loopies.

And yeah, clockwise Peter's loop is better in my book as well. But........................................................................................................................................................variety is the spice of life, right?

Dude, that's not spice. That's like choking down a dozen habaneros...
Just make sure you get spice and not a load of mustard seeds ;)
