Wednesday afternoon I got out for a ride out at Sycamore Canyon and the Santee area in general. Steve had been off the bike for over two weeks with what he described as “The Plague”. Last week the germal infestion caused an aborted attempt for a ride with Steve, but this week “Plague-aholic” made the show. Not wanting to push his recovery luck we opted for something much more XC oriented and mellow than the typical Wednesday stoke rides.
This area is pretty singlespeed friendly so I decided the bring out my one-geared steed out today for a little bit of trail luvin.
XC mellow day or not Steve has a passion for rocks, so I made a point show him a couple of play spots
The steep head angle of this bike was not most rock hounding capable rig (for my skills) so picking the lines carefully was the name of the game.
We ventured over towards Santee and did some more line scopeage and rock play.
The texture of this rock was pretty freaky and we could not help but want to call this the “Brain Rock”
We played and snooped around until daylight became and issue and then headed back. Not a bad way to spend a Wednesday afterwork.
