Newb Nails the Script

I was going to throw this update in yesterday's HCF but it is worthy of a stand alone report.

XT was ride leader last night and Newb, Councilman and I rounded out a solid 4-pak.  Everyone knew that our long unseen brother would bring serious excitement and effort levels to the ride.  I'll let the pictures do the talking below.

Of course he broke his carbon bars in half, what did you expect to happen last night?

Been a long time coming ...


Editing some color from recent rides into Newb's post (B):
Name that bridge.  This is from a ferry shuttled 90 miler a few weeks ago from Pier 41-Vallejo

Granite Springs Road

Snow is already sticking around up high (Sayles)

The below shots are all from the sweet mixed surface crosser roll RG and I took yesterday.  Icehouse Road-Granite Springs Road-Wrights Road-XP-Weber Mill Road

First Tracks

I tucked into Fleming with a buddy of mine who had never ridden it Monday morning.

I tried to explain the significance of having waited from Sunday morning when conditions were deplorably dusty. We creamed Pollywood's finest soils; it seemed the pine needles had been put down with a glue gun. The soils were so swollen they pushed back.
 Fucking marvelous.
Tuesday should be gang busters. I'm IN and can't wait ONE!
