Friday morning roll...

Headed out with Matt and Jack on the goldline out to JPL and El Prieto trails. Instead of riding the fire road up we took the singletrack up, almost to the summit, then turned around and rode about 4 miles of singletrack down, with some incredibly difficult sections, lots of switchbacks, river crossings, off-canter corners, rock gardens, steps, and everything in between

Ascending one of the short sections of fire road we hit

The hazy view of L.A. You know summer is returning when you can visibly see the brown layer of pollution sitting above the city at about 3000 feet

The head of the trail - no action shots as I was too busy trying to stay upright on the trails

The double switchback sections were more than I could pull off on the 29er

It snowed here last night, and it took me a record 8 hours to get the motivation to put on 4 layers for a 3 hour ride. jagoffs.
