reunion ride in The 'Shed

Pooch organized a Gambrill/Shed ride from Ghana over the past few weeks. He was back in town for a bit, preparing for a soft return later this summer, just before the SM100. Pooch finally missed a Shenandoah last year. No direct flights from Accra to Harrisonburg I guess was his excuse.

here he is on a surface just like the sandy beaches of Ghana

his ride for the day. left the price tag on all day

they call him Quigfoot, coming off a long road trip to Colorado, 15 straight days of skiing which included these quotes: "....powder in Aspen for 5 days straight. Powder in Summit County 3 out of 4 days, and great weather for the Hut trip.... "

"...yo-yo'd the 3K' of vert off the gangadubie all day in a dump, and got tons of freshies everywhere. The tree skiing in Aspen and Snowmass is a lot nicer than I expected. Lots of nicely spaced aspen groves and hardly anybody seems to ski Ajax mountain..."

And treated to the local hookup by expat Virginia mountain bikers now living in Aspen and Salida.

Yes, this post is useless without pictures...

Yep, it's all just talk without some pictues. I'll see what I can dig up.

Leader? I can only take credit for being the ride instigator since I was lost most of the day.

We had a great time though.
