    Been a while since we did our ride. I think it's time for another. Maybe something more local to fontana, I think pain freak knows some good routes. I know going up baseline isn't a terrible ride. Then ride around bonelli and make it back. Maybe do a ride up to incycle so anyone can buy anything if they can carry it back.

    Saturday good for anyone? That way if anyone was wanting to go to the STR swap meet on sunday they are still available for that and can take the MTBs out on the dirt at the fully loop if they want too.

    I'm a little leary of signing up for a ride so soon. I'll get back to you as the weekend draws closer. We could also do a loop of Fontana to GMR climb the 5000 feet there and then come back down the other side on Mt Baldy Rd, to Euclid and then return back to Fontana. Total ride is just over 70 miles with about 6500 feet of climbing. Good ride, but takes a while. And depending on the weather this may not be a good one to do.

    yes, today is my last finals day and then I am off until januay 22nd. If you want to ride let me know, i can ride over to your house in like 20 minutes and we can go from there, i know i usually go up baseline as it always prooves to be a safe ride. Bike lane for a while and not too crowded once you go over the 210. I just don't like the road after you go over the 210, but hey can't always be happy right?

    Dean, I want to ride dirt, too. Wanna do some Baldy or San Gabriels? I don't mind exploring, either. We can go up the San Sevaine fireroad if you want.

    Chris, we'll ride for sure, dude.

    You should teach. Do you know how bad they need science and chemistry teachers? You could have a teaching job yesterday. Summers off, bro.
