Baja along the coast ride Aug. 5th-6th (recap)

Recommended Posts

Well, a little more than along the coast which made for an awesome ride. The route took us down the cost dipping to and from the mountains, traversing mountain sides along vague cow trails looking for exits and then to some of the typical stops.

When you have a good group of guys it makes the trip much better with little problems and good camaraderie, thanks to all and look forward to riding again soon.

Sorry for the delay guys, but I believe the Link should work now.

Jack, thanks for the additional pics. There is one of you in the link that I labeled "Not Again" , its you helping out on one of the hill climbs. The pic explains it all, pretty funny.

Great pics!! ...and your welcome. :ride:

Did you all pack it on your backs the entire trek? And did your ride in two days? If so, that makes for 'short' stops and little beer breaks. :applause: And did you burn highway from Trinidad back to Ensenada?? Your map looks like you did. (if so... you missed some great riding up the goat trail out of Trinidad and up towards the pine forest where you could have turned down to Ojos and made Ensenada).

I've used these (click here - also found at SportMart or REI I think) for the long arse rides where a backpack becomes bothersome... they work awesome and really don't get in the way if you pack'em light (shorts, flip-flops..etc).

:thumbsup:

Jat--nice tip on the dog packs. I'm going to try that.

It was a two day ride with a night at Pirates Cove. We did a bit of exploring along the way, but mostly standard stuff.

Great Pics!

That was one very fun ride. I'd gladly go with that crew anytime. Super fun. All solid guys. We'll have to do another trip this fall.

Hehehe... Funny Rob.

I guess I forgot to add that I use these over my seat, and the bags hang against the side plates. :ride: The dog stays at home.

Dist 37 racer with dog,

John McCowan(sp) :applause:

Dogs name was "cookie" :ride:

Over a period I think he had 3 different dogs that rode with him?? :thumbsup:

Corky :applause::applause::applause:

Dogs name was Kookie

I'm old, it takes a while for the gray matter to line up so I can remember??

Here's an article showing John and the dog.

Jack, as I remember John hurt himself several times but the dogs were never injured.

As the dogs got older they were replaced by younger dogs. I think??

I also noticed that the dog is removed after so many miles... Not sure how many, or when... or why... I just noticed when looking through websites of race pics.

... I can't imagine the entire race with him upfront. Let alone the silt from start to finish at the 500... he did well with the pooch up front. As many others didn't even without a dog! :thumbsup:
