Friday the 13th Ride


 I had an out of town visitor who picked Friday the 13th as the day he wanted to meet up for an off road ride day. So I rounded up a couple of buddies, Ed and Jason and we headed off on our merry way to meet up with Frank.

When Ed and Jason showed up I reminded them that it was Friday the 13th and they both stopped for a moment and then said, “how about if we just ride easy today and explore a bit with no crazy stuff!”   Meaning of course none of the normal exploring down canyons that lead to large boulders and waterfall climbs.

I agreed and we were on our way out to pick up Frank. We met up with Frank and all the introductions were made since they had never met. In just a few short minutes we were on our way. It turned out to be one of the best days riding in the desert in quite some time. The sand washes had been washed mostly flat with just a bit of moisture underneath to keep everyone riding pretty much dust free. The single-track sections with some fantastic views were just damp enough to provide perfect traction.

The day ended up being one of the best days of riding in quite some time with weather and traction both being nearly perfect!  Not a single mishap, injury or even a flat tire in about 80 miles.  I can hardly wait for the next Friday the 13th ride!
