Happy to get this done and happy not to get rained on too bad. No cramps and no bonking makes me cautiously optimistic for VQ. Harding is boring two times in a row but since I haven't been in the dirt much lately it somehow wasn't that bad.  Other Comments4233146/183

After putting a tube in a bird flew into my chest and got stuck there for a little while. Crazy. Thanks to the guy who had CO2. Would have been a long night otherwise.  Other Comments

 Rode with Matt, Andrew, Brian, Troy and Mark. Had one of the top 3 worst bonks I've ever had. I didn't have the strength to get back up to Main Divide after coming down Troy Lee so Andrew had to come get me in Corona. Had a really rough day after the ride was finished as well. Just trying to rest and get my strength back now.

 This ride was nuts. Corby, Jeff and I tried to do the ride bigguy posted that combines Tijeras Creek and West Ridge. He forgot to leave any kind of direction, so we got lost at Arroyo Trabuco and tried to ride over to what we thought was West Ridge. We were wrong. We ended up bushwhacking through faint to non-existant single track on the ridge before finally hitting a road we could ride back to Dove Canyon. Saw four deer, crossed two barbed wire fences and rode across at least four streams.
