Riders – Jarret Beatty, Paul Kim, Brian Earle, Johnny Smoke, Matt Juhatz, Johnny Zammit, Sharon Bader, Trevor Hawkins
Having ridden this trail in 2002 and being rather intimidated by it I vowed never to ride it again. That was until I got a PM from Jarret saying they had an extra seat on the flight to Disneyland… hmmm, who’s the guide? Smoke. hmmmm. Forcast = Sun, Trail = Stellar. Reasons not to go = Fear. Fuck it, I’ll go!
When and where, I’m there!
This time on a nicer bike with great brakes that you NEED! Having done it once before the intimidation factor was much less. The trail is long, it is steep and it is committed, so long as you are fit to ride 5-6 hours at intensity it shouldn’t be a problem.
Jarret and Smoke on the flight in. My first trip was planned by Jarret who coudn’t go since he had to wait for a shipment of manure or something…
