We met up with Keith, Jesse, and Tim on Saturday morning for a long mountain bike ride. We started at Timp Park and headed up to the altar and down Frank's and Dragon's back. We took the paved trail to Vivian Park and then headed to Sundance. We went up and down and then jumped back on the road Timp Trail parking lot. We took Jurassic Park trail to the top of the Alpine loop. We did the Ridge trail and headed back home.
The guys were dropping like flies. Okay, well Keith turned down at the top of the Alpine Loop. But both Jesse and Tim were also suffering too. On the way back while we were on the paved trail, Chris rode up next to me and said he was not doing Bonneville South. I was feeling pretty good still considering the riding we had done, but did not want to ride it by myself. So we all just headed back to the cars. It was approximately 4:40 ride time.
I found the ride just a bit ironic though. Keith, Jesse, and Tim were all on hardtail 29ers while Chris and I were both on 26 inch wheeled full suspensions. Things had come full circle.

Odd isn't it what suspension can really do on a long day. Thanks for the great ride, it's always a learning experience. Lesson for this ride: hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

The real reason those 3 suffered was because they all bailed out on the WC.
