Met up with Woodcore and a couple of Crank Fire dudes for a nice pedal from Scoville tonight. Did Jug>Scoville twisties>Truck>Ledges>Waterfall bypass.... and well... at that point I busted another freehub :smash: Everyone else finished up with the waterfall DH>heart thumper>whatever back to the cars. Meanwhile I hiked across the stream to the gravel loop in sessions where I pushed my bike along, coasting as much as possible, to the trail that cuts over to b-street then to 4 corners and the down hill to the BSB. Right as I was finishing the other three caught up with me.

I had an enjoyable time riding up until my breakage. It's always nice riding with new people, plus I really enjoy ledges. Somehow I got out in the front of the group and really pushed my speed up for most of it, as I typically try to do when I'm at the front so as not to hold anyone up..

My GPS had me at 7.66 miles, most of which I was at least on a bike since I coasted and pushed myself along as much as possible after I couldn't pedal anymore.

That sucks about the hub, at least you have a spare set to keep you riding. I really need to get out riding with you guys soon.
