9 Canyons Ride

After coffee and continental was served to my guests...we hit the short roads (Soledad Cyn, Agua Dulce Cyn, Vasquez Cyn) up to Bouquet. Cyn, where in the first tight corner I nearly took out a few jogging Forestry dudes, all in line on the inside of a 10mph corner run-off that was about 12" wide....Wake-up call! I think one guy wet himself.

The Bradster managed to nudge annoying traffic that was impeding our progress and let us get by several times. iI think he liked Bouquet...

Over Spunky to San Francisquito was fairly deserted. One nice old gal pulled over for us twice!

We hacked thru Santa Clarita and got over to Placerita Cyn to Sand Canyon which is very tight and technical for most of the 10 miles or so. Pete and Brad took the lead and disappeared, making me question my anemic riding style....hey fellas!....

Up Lower Tujnga Cyn mid to long fast sweepers The B blew by some HD apehangers and I hung with him grinding parts along the way...may be time for that GS paralever again...


Then north on Angeles forest to Upper Big Tujunga (9 mile) and hit the bumpity Angeles Crest.
$8 Burgers at Newcombs and MotoGP on the big screen was a perfect rest stop.
Arbi showed up on his really cool Boxster, Prof Wacko was around somewhere. Beemers where represented pretty well yesterday I must say.



We finished off the top of the crest and cut down Big Pines (I think I'm getting my rythm!), a quick clip down Ft Tejon to Mt Emma and it was over...aw shucks.
A perfect day, cool and sunny, like the last day of perfect riding weather, (but probably not).
The trees on the backside of the crest are turning color, the crest itself was scattered with pine needles, making some sections in the shadows iffy....(didn't seem to bother Brad a bit)

The B-bike gets the award for most accessories on an S...GPS, video, V2 radar, HARD, 3-4 flavors of carbon...what, no deer whistles...? A beatchin' BoxerCup, no two ways.

As I sipped my Guinness and reviewed the day, I still have much to learn...

rapid~ it seems like if you chop the photos down to 400-450 wide, they settle in.
see "Oh Dear!" post for my response to the deer whistle.
my b-in-law lives in the WA woods. he says deer whistles only ensure that the deer looks at you...just before you hit it. other than that...useless.

Tell me why I live in Illinois?! Granted the weather here in Chicagoland has been fabulous for the last few weeks, why do I feel like I'm missing something!!!

Thanks for the travelogue!

lol Rapid, I know that's more like what you were thinking. But, I'm sure brad will be more likely to be thinking in line with the stuff I mentioned...just call it a guess.
