Meet at east edge of The Grasslands at 6:00 p.m. Up L1/Teote'; down Toad's; up Iron Tread; down Three Barrels. If time permits, I'd like to get in another loop of Toad's and Iron Tread before heading down Three Barrels. The longer route will be about 13 miles (3 climbs and 3 descents); the shorter route, about 10 (2 climbs and 2 descents).

If you change your mind about the Yeti demo, feel free to join us. And by the way, I ride out there just about every Thursday, whether I post it or not. If you or anyone else are looking for an after-work ride on a Thursday in MTRP or Spring/Oak, just shoot me a pm and I'll probably be down for it.

Bump. The last few evenings have been great -- gorgeous light and lots of wildlife.

Thanks for the beers Brian, and for listening to boring stories Jim and I had to tell. For all the DT'ers who receive a call from their wives when returning from a ride much later than expected, when she asks "where are you?", the correct answer is anything other than "in the E.R." Some women just don't have a sense of humor . . . .

Nice riding with you guys tonight. Good weather and company always makes for a good ride. And thanks for being patient with my 2 flats. Hopefully I can be there next thursday.

^^^ No problem waiting for you -- it made climbing Iron Tread a little bit easier. Jim and I made it home well after dark, but things could have been much worse -- he flatted about 100 yards from home, so he just pushed his bike the rest of the way.
