We parked in the far corner, claiming a little space in the busy Knot lot. RG served refreshments and gave EPI-pen demos. Xteric's quiver got deeper.
Departure was prompt. We followed Spawn, Charging to the Left Lip, then snuck off on a new trail by the log ladder. Horse trails around the lake, and then a bunch more mountain biking including more new trails.
We pedaled miles and miles in a lingering sunset, not turning on lights until we were already hungry for tacos.
The Knot was humming, but the throngs quickly thinned. Tacos were quick, leaving time to linger at the fire.
B and I took advantage of Mrs. Nocar's trip to Lake Tahoe by arranging a shuttle. We rolled Hawley, S. Upper Truckee to Big Meadow campground, TRT, Toad's, to lower connector trail behind Meyers to 89, took Hawley from the bottom, then sang down the XP to the Strawberry Lodge. We arrived with time for a beer, just as California Chrome was led to the gates.
At least four different rides were discussed over pilsner at Councilman's. Some of those had to have gone down.
Xteric will be producing a Strawberry Kirkwood Ham Ride.
