12/13/19 Nice ride with full sun (unlike previous time on this loop). Literally millions of Lady bugs on Maple Springs just before the end of the pavement. The first ride on the Tallboy since my OTB incident. I think it is just about perfect after working the bugs out of the drive train and hub.
12/06/19 Started off great! Lite drizzle last couple of miles up Maple Springs. Then a pause for a bit while I put my on my extra gloves and windbreaker for the descent. Just beyond the upper Harding gate it started to rain and continued to until I made it back to my van. I was soaked.
12/01/19 A lot of action at the tree farm with all the sales. Nice ride, many others on Maple Springs. The snow was passable for the most part. Descending Harding had quite a bit of sloppy snow(It would have been a challenging climb). I met someone on the climb and we rode the loop together. I am very pleased with the big ride considering I am just getting back from my big injury. Great ride!
10/06/19 Nice ride on the Honzo. Military medic helicopter landed and was practicing with a stretcher and hoist toward the top of Harding. Very cool, multiple passes. I got some great pictures and videos. The downward wind force of such a large helicopter will knock you over if you’re off guard!
07/25/19 Late afternoon ride. It started out hot 90 plus. The climb up Silverado and Maple had a lot of welcome shade. Just as the pavement switches to dirt was a rattlesnake. I ended up using my bug net for the dirt climb. The Harding gate was wide open at the top (someone broke the fire lock). A good size bobcat was running down the trail just in front of me on Harding. A slow leek on my Honzo’s rear tire was causing me problems. I ended up back at my van in the dark. All worked out. The whole ride I did not see another rider or hiker.
