Great ride...app 20000 riders. THREE flats...only 2 tubes, ended patching one to carry on, stopping several times to inflate it. When I got home, both wheels were flat again. Ride time last year was 3:08 and total 3:10. This year ride time was 3:26 and total 4:04...flats really slow you down, but still an awesome ride with De Wet, Maeson, Laubscher & Kosie.  Other Comments4586

Stopped and watched OCFire doing night training exercises on the helipad as you climb up to the final descent into HR...pretty cool! He who cannot be named performed an OTB with nharper barely missing him going up on the side of the mountain. The cold brewski's back at the cars hit the spot!

Awesome day out in the mountains with 8 great guys! SART is in great shape, a handful of downed trees, but nothing to worry about. Slopush took a dive over the side of the mountain and ended-up 20 feet down...took a bit of time to get him and his bike back on the trail rolling again...he was lucky to walk away with only scratches, a stiff shoulder and a bruised ego! JRMunoz went OTB in a stream crossing...he managed to stay mostly dry while doing the IE version of push-ups in the little stream...pretty hardcore stuff the IE boys do to impress the OC crew...AND rumor has it that Sjon forgot his jacket (again)...Thanks JR for the ice cold brewski's afterwards! 3447

A fun early morning ride with Slopush. Had a Tallboy on demo from The Path...I like the geometry but the front seemed to run around a little with the 120mm fork on the steeper climbs and switch backs...however this thing descends like a bat out of hell. Found 4 ticks on me...guess I lightened Slopush's load...It was a pretty mellow ride, however I shaved 8min off from my PB. 2887

 SS - Late night Memorial Day night ride with Burgemeester. Burgemeester decided to step-up the challenge from riding SS 32-22 and go down to 32-16...we did get to the ball in 1:04, which is faster than my usual conversation pace. A few observations - 1) it was VERY entertaining to ride with him and listen to him describing the workout standing-up 2) he is a grunter/growler/screamer! 3)he did make it to the ball and could not speak much for the 1st minute. 4) he is smart enough to trade-up to an 32-18. Great ride!  Other Comments

2nd Traverse. Rode with a friend last year and we rolled in @8:22. Decided to ride Traverse solo this year and finished with a 6:39 incl. stopping for 20min to fix a cut sidewall with a $20 bill (all I had with me to plug the 1 inch cut)...someone (think it was Hammertime) at the finish line told me it is the best use of $20 that he could think of for the day, since it got me to the finish line. Could not have asked for better weather...and more helpful volunteers (especially Tim on his dirt bike riding next/past me several times encouraging me). A fun day in the mountains...THANK YOU WARRIORS! Thank you to FastTurtle for riding a Snicker bar all the way to 4C and then turn around. Splits 0:58 to Beeks, 2:29 to MW (incl 20min fixing sidewall cut), 3:26 to 4C, 4:26 to peak, 4:36 to LHJ, 5:53 to Trabucco, Total: 6:39. Almost forgot to mention, that I met Sjon at the finish line...he was easy to spot...he was the guy freezing because he forgot his jacket in the truck!  Other Comments5015

Nice conversation pace through HR and then NHarper took-off on his SS - tried to keep up the pace he was setting to the Ball...dang the man got strong on his 1-gear!

Rode with Burgemeester...first VQ for both of us. PB to MW (@2:05) & down MW (2:20), peak @ 4:40...rode a pace to finish and felt good all the way . Hated the HAB up West Horse Thief, but the cheese burger at the top of WHT was the best burger of the day and then a friend pulled out a cold beer from his truck...spend nearly 20min eating a burger and drinking beer. Also lost 20min due to two mechanicals. I guess the game plan for next year would be the cut the mechanicals out and not to party @ WHT. Thank to Slopush & THanson who joined us from the bottom of Maple to the peak. A BIG thank you to the WS for putting up an awesome event. BTW, I liked having the finish in O'Niell park...family friendly etc.  Other Comments6322

Great morning ride with SAMtn.

 Ride 2 of 2 : Mellow-paced spin with Burgemeester...like the changes to the old chutes...thought we were pretty much done with the ride, but that is when the real adventure started. Got past the Boy Scouts area and then a deputy stopped us and told us to go around the back of Irvine Park due to an armed suspect in the area...we did and worked our way around to the entrance...we had dozens and dozens of police, fire, swat and paramedic vechiles all lined-up...got stopped and asked how did we manage to get in the area...Burgemeester explained our way out...thank you for quick thinking on his part! Later learned that the armed suspect committed suicide - http://www.ocregister.com/news/martinez-288147-police-regional.html  Other Comments

Stopped and watched a Chinook helicopter doing maneuvers and then practise 4 landings on the helipad that is about 2 miles out from MW. Long day in the saddle, but combining these two loops make for great training. 2674

Went up the 2N10E...had a ambulance, fire truck & sheriff parked at the gate...a 3 year old kid hit a rock while coming down a hill on a snow disc...sheriff had me wait until the parade cleared out...hope the kid is OK. It was a pretty easy climb up to the Snow Summit supplies turnoff...after that I had some serious snow...the deepest was on 2N08...saw some deer out on 2N10W. Flatted three times and ended descending the last half of 2N08 in the dark with just my zebra light...pretty fun adventure, but snow riding is slow...and hard work...I will never complain about Harding again... 1575

This trails makes every dark early departure out of OC fade to a distant memory once the wheels start to hit dirt. Rode with Karl & FastTurtle. Karl did some amazing wheelies & tricks to get over stuff and FastTurtle needs to learn how to slow down and ride with the slow crew...missed the IE boys today;-)  Other Comments2951

Stopped and chatted with a descending biker on my way up who was dressed in full rain gear and a full face helmet...weather was fine until about a mile from 4C when it started raining for a little while. Stopped at 4C and talked to several hunters...another 2 trucks filled with hunters were heading up Maple on my descent.  Other Comments1392

Saw 3 deer running next to us on MD...saw several hunters out today. 2616

Early morning ride with Slopush, FastTurtle(Paul) and my brother De Wet. De Wet's biggest climb...he was a stud grinding it out to 4C. Paul snapped his derailleur hanger and we had to convert him to a SS. He eventually cut the ride a little short. Slopush acted his age for once and SAMtn joined us for breakfast at Silverado Cafe...all in all, a great morning! 1462

A superb outing with the crew...they showed up in force today, Burgemeester, RaulC, THanson, Trobe1, Twitch, Slopush & Mike. PB of 1:36, cut 5min off...I guess that is what happens when you ride with #3, #10 and #30 on Geo.  Other Comments1499
