Tough ride! Head out early to beat the heat! 7:30am was not early enough.

Met my buddy at Holly Jim Parking lot and rode with him as he finished VQ. Toughest 24 miles I have ever done.

Lots of dust from trucks on the road leading to the trailhead.

Heat killed me today. Thanks Steeleboat and Shine for watching after me.

Big Toad Fest ride today. The weather was so hot and demoralizing. Big group of us like Samtn, Shine and Steelboat ended up going down Horsethief. Very Steep but fun. When I was done my buddy Mark yard sailed it down Trabuco Canyon Trail. Ended up in Urgent for 3 hours while they sewed up both of knees. What a day to say.

Climbing H.J. was nice, except a horizontal trackstand on one of the switchbacks. Punctured as soon as I hit the main divide. First time down West Horsethief. It sure kept my attention, but FUN. Lots of low vegetation kept me ducking. thousands of ladybugs swarming towards the bottom was cool.

Went in reverse direction...I hate WHT, lots of PO. No one on any of the trails. Main divide has been graded, some nice, some loose.

Thanks guys for the survival ride. 60* is still fun, 50* you may want to stay home, 40*dumb, 36*what were we thinking. Turned down West Horse Thief to check it out, I have never been on this trail. After all the talk, I was surprised at how good of condition it is in. It is an easy quick route down the mountain, next time I will climb it, probably with a different opinion about the trail.
