See y’all at King Kog

And here’s a little more Mammoth for ya, courtesy of Huckleberry
Stay tuned for more!
Gabe and I rode/wrote the new route this weekend and it’s gonna be a hoot. We’re gonna use the same casual route as in past years (straightfoward coastal with Planet of the Apes, or y’all can choose the tunnel or the newly opened Devil’s Slide multi-use path), for a total of about 55 miles. The race route this year is similar as last year, but with a bit more climbing. All in all it’s about 75 miles with about 7,000 feet of climbing. It’s a hard fucking race. Don’t be a muppet and race it unless you’re a very strong rider.
Q: What kind of bicycle should I ride?
A: A cross bike would be good. Whatever you’re comfortable on would be best.
Below are the bikes that Gabe and I rode the route on and they both worked
And more pictures from the race route

Carrying your cat? Bringing home dinner? Carrying your friend?
Whether you carry a little or a lot, bikes are a fashionable way to carry all sorts of stuff. We’ll be creating a slide show of your pics and showing them before the films. Post by midnight Monday, May 26. And when posting, feel free to include a short note on where you were going with your stuff and how much fun it was to carry it by bike!
