THIS IS A NO-GO FOR ME. Weather is too "unstable" so I do not want to commit and put anyone out on a crappy day. I'll play it by ear and may ride out on my own if it turns out to be a nice day. Please be safe out there...

Hi folks! Any plans for this Saturday? I'm in for any ride. It'll be 62 degrees/cloudy - but I'm riding either way.

Lemm know! [thumbsup]

Zed and I might head to Mosquito Ridge. I just heard that it has been repaved!
Chip seal...my favorite!

All are welcome.

Re: MOB Ride - 27 Jan 07?

I have to see what pans out for the weekend. I'd like to go. It was awesome this weekend and I haven't been up North in a while. :)

Re: MOB Ride - 27 Jan 07?

Either we ride up my way... or I head down and join you all for a NorthBay ride. The closer we get to the weekend, the better picture we'll have on the weather. Again, I'm riding for sure UNLESS its RAINING... then I go boarding at Squaw. :)

I like to ride, but as Rick said, let's see what happens to the weather. Where is Mosquito Ridge? If it's further than Berryessa, I'll have to wait until it's warmer (can't afford to get frostbite on long freeway) ;D

Sounds interesting, but...Where is Mosquito ridge? Where do we meet? :-\
Hmmm... that's toward the Sierras (lower area) - right Grio?

That might be pretty deep for some of you Bay Area types... maybe something in closer proximity? I'm always down for a Berryessa ride, but will head out for a North bay ride as well (Mt Tam?). Maybe Berryessa via 128 from Winters Side? Maybe looping around Calistoga?

I say 0900 hrs meet in Vacaville if the ride is my way. If it is elsewhere, I'd like someone else to take the lead on it (details!)... :)

Weather report is calling for a possibility of rain Sat. Maybe Mosquito Ridge should be moved to Sun. Trail head for this ride would be at Hwy 50 and El Dorado Hills. Yes, it would be a long cold slab ride for the Bay folks. :-[

I'd make the ride out but hrmmmm...I'm in Sacramento on Sunday for workish things. Count me out. You guys have fun. I'll catch up with y'all another time. There will be plenty of time to ride: Summer's a'comin'...I just noticed that it wasn't pitch black today at 5:30 like it normally is. 8)

Re: MOB Ride - 27 Jan 07?

hello! I'm new at MOB. I'd love to join a bay area ride. Tam, or up north, what-ev.

I saw a Mt Tam Suggestion above:
Last weekend this was REALLY fun. Mt Tam

Bay on one side, Pacific on the other.




(confession: the GPS path was done on a bicycle. Not suggesting anyone ride on the bike paths through Mill Valley!)

You guys are too hard core for me. Once the temps start hitting the 70s, I'll be joining ya! :p

I'm with you, Rick. If we start getting some decent snow, I'll be up in the powder. Sugar Bowl is my mountain.

HA! It was nice yesterday (and Monday!)... I did an after-work ride! Hit Pleasants Valley Road then headed out to the Corners and back. Full leathers, under-layering (snowboard & cycling gear), a Turtle Fur neck warmer... and I'm toasty - ok, maybe not "toasty" but it's quite bearable. And we're talking the sun coming down and the temps dropping FAST! I had a blast.

Rain - now that's a different story.

Looks like I'm out for Saturday folks. :( Other "obligations" have surfaced. I will ride on Sunday instead. Weather seems to be better on Sunday as well.

Playing it by ear kids. Be safe if you do ride...
