MUni Weekend scouting expedition

Ricardo and I (along with Nancy and Rich hiking) went up to scout the main venue for California MUni Weekend (October 11-13, be there!). We’ve ridden at Napa Skyline Park a few times, but we still have a lot to explore. On this trip we discovered that:

  • Buckeye is a nice, challenging climb which would be a fun downhill for intermediate riders
  • Lower Skyline is not quite as technical as Upper Skyline, but has one really tough rock garden section and the whole thing looks good
  • Manzanita Trail is really, really fun

We’re putting a climb on Buckeye and a climb/descent on Manzanita on the route for CMW.

After Ricardo won Best Biff again, we learned a new dance where you alternately grab all of the injuries you’ve had over the past month (side, butt, hip, shoulder). Hey, Macarena!
