I was thinking of either:
A. Weds. 5:30 am ride - Lost Dog Wash to Taliesin Overlook to MMR Loop back to Lost Dog (no Sunrise) - about 1 1/2-3/4 hours
-or-
B. Weds. 7:30 pm ride - Similiar but up Sunrise; not necessarily the whole epic (i.e. - the above + Sunrise) - about 2 - 2 1/2 hours

Anybody interested in either?

I've decided I'm going out Weds. AM. Will be launching from the 128th St. trailhead at 5:30 am, if anyone wants to join me.

Good ride...

Mark (singlespeedsycip), Mike (pwrtrainer) and rode this morning. Launched from 128th St. around 5:40 am. Went over towards 124th St. and picked up Lost Dog, up to the Taliesin Overlook, down the other side and did the MMR Loop, then back up to the Overlook, then took Brain's Wild Ride (the rocky doubletrack) back over to Ringtail, then Ringtail back down do 128th St.

I don't know the exact total miles, but I think it's about 10-12-ish. Mark had a new GPS toy and tracked about 1150 feet of climbing on the ride.

Pretty good pace throughout... I was on my SS chasing Mike, who was on his gearie chasing Mark, who was on his rigid SS. He's a fast fukker...even when he's taking it "easy."

Good ride...nice to be done by 7 am on a day like today...

Walt, great ride...we should make it a weekly event, definetely good to get out on the bike and "decompress" from the work week....
Mike, Nice meeting you, hopefully I'll get to ride with you more often if our schedules permit....
And to all you other slackers who were not there its time to get up and out of bed;) .....meet up for some more week day rides...

Oh, don't let Walt fool ya....I could barely even keep him in sight while he was carving up ringtail heading back to the trailhead.
