Glad you are feeling better N55.

DJ, what the heck is up with that crazy CO weather?!

I met a riding bud up in Big Bear this morning and we carved up the mountain that Snow Summit sits on. Did two loops, 22.21 miles, 2785', 1404 calories. That high elevation (7000-7600') will suck the life out of you. I am on a new eating routine and my body is still adjusting, so I was light headed a bunch today.

You think 6,700FT is high? LOL
Damn flat landers. ;)

Drink lots of water going from low to high elevation and your body will adjust faster.

I’ve ridden those trails surrounding Snow Summit, great place. One of my favorite places in SoCal. Too bad it became so popular and is way over crowded now.

22 miles, you’re an animal.

What weather are you referring to?

I noticed that but didn’t realize it’s been that long. We miss ya Sti, come on back.

I’d like to report a ride today at 7,500FT. coincidentally to Hawgs recent high altitude ride. Mine wasn’t nearly as grueling though. Went for an easy mix of paved sidewalk and side trails. All along a lake in Estes Park. A relaxing nature ride really, many critters out. Got in 11 miles of stress relief. A beautiful 75° day up there with a threat of an afternoon shower, typical in the Colorado mountains. Nothing really produced however my last mile before the truck I got sprinkled on. That was a 10 minute sprinkle that moved on and sunny skies again. Gotta love the Colorado high country weather. No photos to share due to my cell phones memory is full. Gotta get after that iCloud download. I did take some GoPro footage I may share once I get it downloaded. Topped the day off with a nice meal at a Mexican cantina that overlooked the boardwalk along the river. Many a tourist visual to take in from all around the world. Apparently short shorts have made a come back. ;)

Nice!
I’m so fortunate to only be a 1/2 an hour from it. Driving up that amazing canyon is one thing but Estes and higher up, amazing. I’m up there a couple times a week throughout the year. It amazes me that people live in Loveland and Fort Collins and never go up there, I’m drawn to it.

Showed another new friend around my neck of the woods today. Last few rides have been out his way so he came out to ride the San Gabes for the first time. And, he dug it! We did the classic Brown Mtn/El Prieto loop. Back at our trucks afterward, he said, "Anytime you are planning to do that ride, count me in.".

13.75 miles
1939'

I’m not up on British sports cars but I’m pretty sure these two deserve better treatment

Cool! Junked cars seem to be a staple in mountain biking. I can think of at least 4 in So Cal just off the trails I ride.

I have ridden three days in row. My legs are a bit tired now, but could go again. Did a short loop of about 9 miles through Cherry on Weds. Then celebrated the 4th with friends on a roll through Cheseboro that was good for 17.2 miles. Yesterday I wanted to ride the Verdugos and that means some big climbing. I ended up with a little over 10 miles and a little over 2000' gain.

And then the 7.1 quake up in Ridgecrest hit. Even though we are well over 100 miles away, it shook our building well and for quite a stretch of time. No damage here. Friends in Vegas, Yucca Valley, and San Luis Obispo/Paso Robles felt it, too.

The day before is when the 6.4 quake hit up there. We were having brunch after the Cheseboro ride when that one happened and it rolled pretty good for several seconds.

Whole lotta shaking going on out here...

Leaving for a long weekend in Big Bear on Thursday afternoon. Meeting Optimus and his wife up there. Escaping a big heatwave that arrives on Friday. Am I bringing my bike? YOU BETCHA!

Damn, Mr. H, am I outta the loop! Quake, yo say? 7.1, you say? Holy sweet Jeebus on the Cross!

BTW, the 4th saw me pedal out to Ft. Rosecrans to plant U.S. Flags on graves of old friends from the bad old days. Needed a couple more this year. Not one mofo cemetery official even made eye contact with me. That's an improvement.

I was curious on how you faired with that 7.1. I didn’t here from you so I figured you had your hands full with cleanup. Joking aside I’m glad you weren’t seriously effected.

There’s been some cool cloud formations lately in my hood. Today at 7,000FT and a nice 75°. No precipitation but amazing sky.

Sadly I, had to scrap the Big Bear plans. Too much going on around town to escape. There is a BIG group ride shaping up in Big Bear in August though and I will surely be there for that day trip.

Mr. H., did any of your most excellent aquariums suffer damage from the quakes?

Not at all Ray. In fact I have not heard of any damage in the Greater Los Angeles area. Since the quakes were so far away, it was a rolling effect, not up and down like the '94 Northridge Quake which was close by. So, pools (and perhaps aquariums) sloshed a bit but that's it.

I got slightly further in the process, also in roughly 5 years.

Why do I have to minimize photos so much to get them to posts here? They come out pixilated and blurry once I’ve done that.
