I called it quits as it was getting darker and harder to ride with only a front brake.
    Hope he's OK!

    Oh no!! Steve, I hope you are okay. What happened out there tonight?

    Hoopty - yeah, I'm guessing the weather was fine out there tonight, we were just too lazy to do all the 'getting ready' stuff for a possibility of being rained on, etc...

    Hope it was a good ride out there -- sans whatever has happened to Steve!!!

    Thanks to everyone for your help last night. You guys were great. I ended up with two broken ribs. They were still aligned, which is a good thing! I have no idea how long I am out, but I will definitely be back! steve

    Steve, Glad to hear you made it home ok. I was worried about you. The good news is we are near the end of he season and you'll be healed up for next season. Ill be riding Wednesdays, weather permitting, as long as i don't mess up the trail. Then i go when its frozen. Heal fast and see you soon!

    I really appreciated your help that night. I am at the end of my 3rd year of mtn biking and am just feeling like I get it, but I also know that I have a lot to learn, even at 56! I appreciate your tips and helpful suggestions. Wed night I was over driving my light and skill level. I saw the upright rock but too late. It was a lesson learned. Thanks again. I will see you soon,

    Hey cats & jammers.... not sure that this one is gonna go off on Wednesday... we got a lot of rain over in this neck of the woods & the temps just seem to be dropping and possibly more rain on the way ... I'll check the trail tomorrow afternoon and post up later in the evening... I'll be surprised if it'll be rideable tho...

    Hey guys, it's Will, I met some of you 2 weeks ago (I was the guy that joined the group the night Steve had his accident). I'm with utarch, I'd love to ride tomorrow evening. Is anyone going out there?

    I rode the lakeside trail Sunday afternoon and it was good then and my guess is that it should be pretty decent by tomorrow afternoon, no guarantees though.

    Excellent ride tonite! Got the whole trail in... no crashes but a few close calls - I have a nice sized apple on my shoulder where, I swear, an 18" dia. tree jumped out in front of me... looking forward to next week... been off the bike for 2 weeks and it definitely showed. Nonetheless fun tho'....

    It looks like I'll be sneaking out of work early today, so I'll probably be there around 4:30 if anyone would like to meet up for a super bumbling-slow ride. Plus I don't have a bike light yet so it's safer for me to finish up early.

    Chilled ride last night... yeah, the weather was perfect... actually got a little cool toward the end... Good food/conversation @ La Hac after...

    Thinking about mixing things up a bit for next week... instead of Hammy, maybe do Lock 4 or Shutes... dunno, maybe something a little different... consensus?

    I will be @ BP @ 4:30 pm on Wednesday to snag you... Yvo will be driving the getaway car/truck... I don't think too many people are gonna object to a 6'4" 225lb redneck kidnapping your scrawny a$$.... LOL

    I am going to bump this back up. I think it is time to start our Wed. group rides again, now that the weather and daylight is starting to cooperate with us again. Who's in?

    Unhappy

    Put me down as a participant! I'll even try to stay on both wheels! Work stuff might get in the way, otherwise I am there.

    OK, tomorrow night, RTR at 5:30ish. I have not been on the bike in a long time so I am planning for a slow ride. Bring you lights. Let's hope the weather cooperates with us.

    ill be doing my best to make it out...Probably will be more like 5:45...what route do you take? Maybe ill catch up by cutting off the beginner section if you go through it....or just ride everything reversed.

    We start at the Lakeside parking lot. The normal route is ride the beginner, than intermediate. I don't know if we will just stay on the Lake side or if we will adventure over to the Ned Shelton side, we usually decide when we get to that point.
