Last time I wrote about their heroic attempt, a gigantic ride in itself. I guess they learned from their experience, and November 13, 2010 went down as the day when Henry Coe first saw any human being (or, superman?) measured 100 miles of its trails in one day on a two wheel vehicle that is non-motorized (if you can avoid staring at their big quads). They are my friends (can you tell I'm proud?): Dirk (ElHombre), Patrick (ratpick), and Roy (plymmer).

I had been off my bike for a while because I was completely absorbed in my new job. When I was not thinking about work, I was obsessed with the kitchen remodeling idea that came up a little while ago and had been having fun doing researches on that. But today, after I saw their reports on MTBR, I rushed out the door. Erik and I did a quick ride at Skeggs — still had chores to do before dark to get ready for another busy work week. The condition of the trails we got on (Manzanita, Lower Steam Donkey, Giant Salamander, Lower Fir *gulp*, Resolution, ECdM, etc) was just perfect — tacky and mud free! I wish it could stay like this forever!
So, here… here is the ride:
Oops, wrong link. It was THEIR Hard COEre 100! (I accidentally stole it from Patrick's Garmin Connect.)
And here… here is MY ride:
