 Fun ride from my place in Irvine. Met some nice folks out there today. Reminded me why MTBing is such a great activity. Loving the new bike...tis a beast.

 Good times today with Chary and Jirah. Brought back old memories. Had an interesting conversation with some guy clearly on drugs trying to convince us that we didn't have the right to ride down WildCat. Was about to hear him out until I realized he was on drugs.  Other Comments

 Did this the other day while doing a cyclo cross photo shoot and saw Jim working on the singletracks. We all owe this man tremendously. Really nice guy. Funny, saw a MTBer fly down the trail and who obviously saw him with the shovel and wheelbarrow but did not say a thing...not even a 'thank you'. Sure enough Jim was just happy to see people putting tracks down on the trails.

 Did the first half of this en route to Harding and the rest on our way back. These days I MUCH prefer going into Whiting from exit area (off Portola between Pauling & Glenn Ranch). The sand is atrocious on Borrego and I fear if I clear some of it out or re-route around the park rangers will undo my good doing.

 Showed this transporation corridor to the TRD boys...same exact route as the day before. I am Hardinged out. Highlight: Caught a Army / Natl Guard UH-60 holding a hover while on the way down. There is a makeshift exercise/hoverpad on your righthand side (when climbing) just before you start the slight downhill grade about 1.5 miles from the top gate.

 Rode with girlfriend through Whiting and then decided to introduce her Harding TT. Rode on ahead and turned around at the top. Felt horrible having not eaten until the previous day. Rookie mistake. 1:04.59 gate-to-gate. Never timed myself but hit the lap button for sh*ts and giggles. Will try again one day.

 Opening lap of Sept 09 24Hour. Effin' team made me do the run! Seemed to be losing a lot of time on the climbs as I paid the price for my lazy summer. Did the best I could to make up time on the DH and managed to pass the baton off in 1st overall. Team rode their hearts out and I was proud to be a part. Every other rider in the event was very pleasant & courteous...except for one who I had to be honest with.

 Fun adventure! No directions for this route but a brief study of the SATELLITE IMAGERY made it quite straight forward. Discovered a new airline up there, Air Kentonn (that boy can jump!). Hehe, great fun. Kentonn took the best crash (well-controlled though). Tore my rear derailleur off whilst climbing up the switchbacks to deliver Kentonn a tube. Good times.
