Extra, Extra, This Week Only!

How bout 2 night rides this week???
I know, a little crazy. I'm going to see Dana Carvey on Thurs, so how about Wed night at 6 from the Reservoir (is that what your plan was, Howard?).
I guess the Thurs will stay Mont Alto at 6.
Wed, 6 at Reservoir
Thurs, 6 at Mont Alto
Got it??

Tuesday night looks like the best night of the week. I would like to start riding at 5:30 and ride for about 2ish hours.

Who's in?

Night ride photos

Apparently I am a nocturnal MBM rider as I can't ever seem to make it to rides during the day. Luckily I made it out Thursday night for my first night ride of the season.

Me and four other like-minded fellows took advantage of the decent temps and the break in the rain to get in a good-natured and fun ride.

IPA's at the top before descending the techy sketch is always a good idea, right?

Left to right: CB aka "Mooch", Brian aka "Slow", Ho' aka "Faster than you", Scott aka "Huey-Hoff"; the man behind the camera - drw aka "Cosmo"

I always forget how fun it is to ride in the dark. Come on out and enjoy the fall temps.

Keefer's Ride on Sunday

Anybody interested in joining me for this ride Sunday?
I thought I'd go and represent MBM - there has been a decision made by your officers to contribute $50 of MBM's fortune. Would anybody like to ride the skinnies with me?
Will be a little chilly at the start, but looks like the weather will be relatively nice. Let me know, I'd love some company.

Early Gun Season

Oct 20-22 is gun season.
Does anyone need to borrow the antler helmet?
Ride Sunday and avoid bullets.

Sunday Oct 23 Ride

Posting the ride for Chief- 9:00 am Long Pine Reservoir boat launch parking lot
Jersey Sponsors Needed!
We currently have 2 and one on the hook at the $250 price point.
Please share if you know anyone who would want a $250 or $500 advertisement with a FREE JERSEY! Of course the $500 or more would have larger size and better placement! We can always work something better for more money!

MBM Represents at Iron Cross!

MBM ran the best checkpoint at Iron Cross again this year. David Kegley, Dave Wilson and I did the riding. David took 5th in Singlespeed category, Dave outperformed with a sub 5 hour time of 4:50 something. My hopes of a sub 6 hour time were narrowly dashed by a flat tire and some (manageable) cramps. I came in at 6:09. I'm sure I can better that with more carbs, some changes to the bike and some tire luck next year.

Here is me before the pain looking fresh-faced and noobish
Dave with his game face on
Me with my IC bling!
Thanks to Dave and others for encouraging me to run the IC this year. Thanks to everyone that came out to man Checkpoint 2, especially my wife Jill and our boys Peter and Owen. Thanks to everyone who cheered us on!

2011 IC IS HERE!

Let me start with FREE BEER, HOT DOGS, AND SWAG! Plus the benefits of getting the club a $100 donation! If you don't want to go to the start please be at the check point at 10am. We expect racers around 11am. Our rush of racers should be between 11-1245. Please post if you plan to attend! Come support Dave, Scott, and Sue in the race! Zach also needs additional volunteers so if you can help please do! Any questions please ask!!!

CP Location: Top of Stillhouse Hollow Road where it crosses the power line. Take Milesburn Road from 233, go past the reservoir, past Birch Run Road, and at the next fork, go left on Stillhouse Hollow and drive to the top of the mountain and the powerline.


Has anyone else seen timbering markings on the trees on Vista?
