up rock-it, down car wreck
Got out there late afternoon today for a solo ride. Saw a younger rider doing what looked like intervals on Mathis. 3 riders walking up RockIt in the rock garden as I was coming down. Also a couple of riders at the end with no helmets and one with headphones who got a bit surprised as I pedaled past him. My ringing my bell and saying on your left weren't loud enough apparently. Good talking to Dale back at the cars. Charged the garmin after Saturday's ride but it was dead when I went to turn it on.
Short, easy ride tonight. Felt good. Perfect temperature for riding again tonight.
The legs are hurting, burning calories, now I can enjoy my pumpkin pie! Great Ride!
First half of ride today with John, Oscar and Kevin.

First time down Five Oaks and first time up Rock-it. Five Oaks was really loose, but a lot of fun. I saw 4 deer and a buck in the meadow at the bottom just before the fire road. As for Rock-it, it really wasn't that bad of a climb. I've been down it several times and have been really intimidated to climb it, but I made it up no problem!
Chris & Jason. Ran across some of Chris's friends at the bottom of oaks, fixing a flat. We then rode together. good times at the Ranch after
Kathy Jamis ADAM Chris,
A recovery ride after Adams big day
a little windy today, good food afterwords.
Late afternoon ride. Only saw 2 other riders the entire ride. 5 Oaks is not loose anymore but there are some ruts to be careful of. The trails I was on are in good shape, any mud puddles were easily avoided.
