Burrito's eye view at the first camp:
In an attempt to go light most of us tried the "tarp taco" technique with mixed results. Mark brought that crazy hunk of Tyvek, to clinch the title of most unnatural sounding squeaky tarp taco.
Just a better look at Brian's new Hunqapillar. This is a really excellent bike, plus it's always nice to see how people deal with the load for off road riding.
And on that subject here's Marks front bag he's been working on. Seems like this is the final phase of the design. He sews them himself, and I guess they're called Mark Bags. Also of note the bag is sitting on one of Matt Feeney's incredible/ beautiful/super useful Pass and Stow front racks.
Turing the corner after lunch, popping out on the road, and coming down fast. This was the view waiting for us.
At one point on the ride I was just one little hill behind Sam. Coming over the rise I see Sam's foot flying through the air; this was the result.
The full crew. We were joined by Joe and Fay for the camping portion on Saturday night. Stoked that they rode out and met us on their way the the Russian River.
True to form, this blog will show some vintage MTBs! We ran into this killer Fisher at the grocery in Fairfax. I'm guessing its a Mt Tam model, but that's just a left field guess. It's a fillet brazed model, and what looked like pressed-in bottom bracket cups.
Looks mighty close to a Ritchey. I was inside taking a leak when the owner emerged and rode off, so no small talk about the bike. My buddies outside managed to say "nice bike" to the old guy in a Hawaiian shirt and I guess he smiled and rode off. Hopefully we were both finishing off a killer weekend!
