If all goes well today I'll be driving to the Trail head in the morning. I have to drop my son off at school in Quiedersbach @ 0700hrs...then I'm off to the Trail head. If someone would like to catch a ride drop me a line so I know weather to mount my bike rack...

I am catching a ride with Daniel. Want to make sure he shows, so if I ride with him, there is a little more pressure.

You know I hear forced exposure is not necessarily the best cure for PTSD... Let him come to terms with the horror in his own way.

Beer is cooling, bag is packed (helmet included), and the weather looks great. This could be a memorable ride.

To anyone who will be on the same train/schedule as me; I will get on the rear-most cyclerack-equipped car.
My schedule has a 15 minute layover in KL hbf, just long enough to get some fresh-baked goodies!

Helluva ride guys!
Matt, thanks for the Belgians!
Steve, thanks for mapping out the new route! Lots more climbing (and time) involved but the downhills were sweet!
Matt, did you ever get an opportunity to unload?!?
John, maybe you bonked from using up all that extra oxygen yelling at us! Razz
All in all folks, it was a great ride and I already look forward to next year!

Thanks for the beer, the fun, and the pics! My knee is sore, but my heart is light. A great day, with no major injuries.

Why does it look like all of the trees are leaning forward in those photos? clown

It was perfect weather and a beautiful trail. The season ain't over yet, still time to train train train the bonks away!

We changed it up this year. Did a long fireroad/single track climb to the top the rode down the tech climb from last year. Then back up to the top and the normal downhill to the cars..
