Big Middlefork Ride Time

D00dz, we're rolling AT 9AM, Friday. That is, be READY by 9 - so aim to get there around 8:30 or so, if you're one of those lackadaisical types when getting ready, like me.

***edit*** starting at the trailhead at DD and 32. Yeah, that tiny gravel lot.

I REPEAT - CLICKING IN AT 9AM

Bring food, supplies, CHAIN LINKS, tubes, dirty magazines, water, etc...

On this ride, we will be like Arnold in Commando - huge and badass. If only we could get Power Station to ride with us, the whole time blasting their immortal song "We Fight For Love:"


In other unrelated-to-cycling news, congrats to Mrs. Toscani and Mrs. Ryback for completing the Half and Full Marathon (respectively) on Sunday, in the most rainy, miserable conditions possible. It can be disheartening to still be running even after all the water tables have been taken down (not joking), but even more inspirational to finish nonetheless! That truly embodies the TC MAN Motto - "Fuck 'em!"

In like Flynn!

Camping before and after...CBL or nearby.

Only half of TTM will make this trip.

With the nice weather they're calling for on Friday I vote the first loop should should be of the full trail gravel loop, unless you're scared of getting your feet wet crossing that little ol' stream.

Great answer man...Works for me!

Casey Ryback said...

sure as long as you don't mind waiting for me to carry my socks and shoes across, and then put them back on, on the other side! Another 45 miles with wet feet isn't super appealing. Otherwise, I'm game.

I think I'm in, only because I still haven't been to Dos Primos.

Maybe, if my new bike comes in by then. Threw mine off a bridge on the way home after this weekend of racing, set it free!

Casey Ryback said...

Christian, that is as good of an excuse as any to make the trip down.

My wrists are fin' to get snapped up in hurr.

I rode the entire Middlefork on Wednesday and it's in excellent shape. The worst section is just after the creek you mention. Some equestrians did some serious damage to a few hundred foot section of the trail. I caught them in the act and cussed them out to their faces...seriously. I've got issues.

You're going to have an awesome ride. My recommendation would be to ride the entire trail. Your feet are going to be wet for the entire ride. There are like 30 creek crossings right now.

That's why I am doing the ride in flip flops Furby. Are you going to be in attendance?
