ONLY 2 REPORTS, EVERYONE MUST BE USING THEIR PTO AND ON HOLIDAY! Mike
PATTI ROSENTHAL, Cycling Industry Mgr. rode Kennebec Mountain Bike Loop this is an epic MTB bike ride we do every year. You climb up to 11,600 feet to the top of Kennebec Mountain & then go down the back side down to Walls Gulch, up to High Point & back out Junction Creek. Miles of single track through the forest with creek crossings, waterfalls and some hike-a-bike. Had several crashes one trying to cross a creek, another off a tree root & fell off the cliff climbing back out (that one hurt!). Our friend also did several endos & cut his hand pretty deep which we duct taped closed for the remainder of the ride (he ended up with 6 stitches). All in all it was a terrific ride (over 8 hrs) & we were rewarded with cold beers & lunch at the finish.
JIM HINE, General Mgr Database Services rode his father in-law's Trek 2200 this past Sunday while vacationing in Jamul. "I swapped out the 15-year-old bald tires for new rubber when I noticed the tube bulging out of the sidewall! The 40-mile loop climbed above the morning clouds on Skyline Truck Trail and out through Japatul Valley. The descent towards Alpine tool me past Sycuan Casino and back to Jamul on Dehesa Road. I'd guess that 80% was over full bike lanes...way to stay classy San Diego!"
