Wyman set up a Presidents Day ride, meet at the Compressor Road off HWY51.
I arrived a half hour early, it was already 50F but the wind was howling.
My cap blew off all the way to the road  when I stepped out of  the truck.

JimBob grew up on a nearby farm. He took us on a ~ 30 mile loop of old race courses and trails he rode as a kid.




One of the washes below Horse Hill.
Some where along the wash I felt  water on my leg, thought it was a puddle but I had lost the valve on my
mouth piece and all my water .

Descending Horse Hill  , it took me two tries to climb it .

We looped back to the truck so I could replace the mouthpiece and replenish my water.

Rock crawling through a canyon . I took the easy way out .


Big Jack was running high !
There was a hole just as you climb out . I looped my bike but landed on dry ground.

Rich bobbled on a rock and dropped his bike.
Jeff jumped in and kept the bike from completely submerging .

Dewatering the bike , it started right up.


Jeff and Rich dried out the best they could.
