Here we go again. It's always a blast to get the ladies together for a ride. We'll be at Goose Creek CG. Potluck Saturday night. Lot's of kid friendly trails in the campground. Everyone is welcome to come. You can follow up and get more details in the Northwest section of the forum.

Take care.

Glad to see this is coming up again this weekend, what a beautiful spot, and the gourmet chef in the woods concept works great (in other words the eatin' is great too)! This is a cool place to ride with a little something for everyone (even newbies like me)!

Nikki,

Thanks for putting together another fantastic ride. A great time was had by all. Tawnya has been on cloud nine ever since we got home!

Here are some pictures from this weekend.

Don't try this at home...

...or this could happen to you!

See you all next time!

PS, Nikki, could you PM me Tim's phone numbers and such, so I can get ahold of him regarding Halloween?

Thanks.

Jeremy

Here is a teaser... Nikki and her crew!

Nice pictures. Reminds me of where my Dad lived in Humbolt County, CA. Green all year round, but rains a lot. That looks like some fun riding! :cry:

oh you're cracking me up Jeremy - nice 1st picture. At least this time I didn't have a beer in my hand too, he he.

Ditto - Ditto - I've been on cloud nine too and thanks Nicki for setting the ride up.

I am kicking myself for not having a camera. Us girls had such a good time!!!!! If there's any girl out there who's even considering riding with us thumperettes (Tawnya, Kendra and Nicki) - you must consider!! I wouldn't have even considered going up Alder Ridge trail if it wasn't for riding with them (I hate that trail!!) but I knew I would be in good hands if I needed any help and we'd have a good time along the way. And of course we did :cry:

Can't wait to ride again!!!

Thanks everyone for coming! And a special thanks to Kemilu, Tawnya, and Chelcie for hitting Alder Ridge w/ me. Maybe next time we'll beat the mountain bikes through the switchbacks :cry: You're a great group of gals to ride with. Look forward to doing it again.

Take care.

Nicki

P.S. - pretty sure the little toe is broken :cry: + I can still ride :cry:

Here's a post that tom had left with his video shots of our ride on sunday... Nice Riding nicki!!!!!

Thank's again for setting it all up :cry:

Ciao'~GB

I complied all my helmet cam footage into a nice 8 minute or so video. It's a little big so if you're on dialup you might as well go get a beer while you wait.

Featuring 2ply, Troy (don't know if he's on TT), Gearbunny, Nikki and others..

Two versions, Low quality small version, and High quality big version.

As I noted, you'll need Window Media Player to play. I think Windows Media Player 9. Any problems let me know.

If you don't have Windows Media Player you can download it here:

I'm experimenting with an xVid version too. I just got tipped to the technology so I'll see how it turns out and post that version to if it works.

:lol::cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Just got done watching the hi res 8 minute video, and WOW!!!! I'll take Nikki for my teammate on any "TEAM" Hare Scrambles, cus she was TEARING it up!!! VERY nice, tight, and technical ride. I didn't catch the first person you were following, but in my eye, I'm afraid he'd have been run down when he 'slipped', I almost didn't see his slip, as I was looking for a way past him! LOL LOL

EXCELLENT video, and if you don't have broadband, TAKE THE TIME to D/L it....WAY COOL

Thanks for taking the time to post it!!!

Tom

So I get half way thru it at 9:18pm...seriously, and I decide to watch what I've downloaded so far. Gong! Server is busy, try back later. :cry:

I'll have to wait till it comes out at Block Buster! :cry:

I had the same problem. I got booted off after a couple hours of downloading (still had 2+ hours to go)and lost it all :cry: I gave up and went for the low quality video. That took a little over an hour. However, my screen is messed up (dark) and difficult to see. :cry: What I did see was pretty cool. I love those trails :cry: Thanks GB and ERider for filming and sharing. Thanks for all the compliments. I love to ride and always have a blast w/ all the other thumpettes.
