Caution to the wind

One of my principles in organizing rides is to never cancel the ride based on a weather forecast. (For that matter, I won’t cancel the ride when the weather is actually bad, but that’s another thing).

It turned out that this Sunday we hit a gap in the storm and had a ride in gorgeous conditions in Joaquin Miller. Yu, Ricardo and I had the park almost to ourselves as we splashed through temporary streams and tested our tires. (Actually, traction was fairly good except in the mud pits; many thanks to Stan Dodson and BTCEB for all the work they do to keep the trails draining well). I won Best Biff just 10 seconds into the ride, trying the chute down to the meadow (we all made it eventually).

Next week, China Camp!
