I can't commit to a particular day of the week just yet, but this week I can lead a ride in Spring Canyon on Tuesday night. Two good climbs (3 Barrels and Iron Tread) and two fun descents (Toad's and T.O.T./L-1). This a great after-work ride -- ~10.3 miles in ~1.5 hours, and it's mostly singletrack. Wheels rolling at 5:45 at the Bushy Hill lot, across from the MTRP campground.

I'll check back tomorrow night.

I'll try. I killed my front brake pads yesterday. If I can get some today. I'll try harder. Should I charge the Magicshine?

Lights won't be needed -- if we start promptly at 5:45, we'll be done by 7:15. I hope you can make it; this is the west side of the ride we didn't get to the day your derailleur exploded.

For anyone else considering this ride, I pre-rode this loop last night for distance and time, so the figures stated in the OP are definitely accurate.

I'll be riding over from my house and arriving right about 5:45, so if you don't see my sweet, sweet minivan in the lot when you get there, don't despair . . . .

With the mist we had overnight and this morning, the trails should be perfect.
