Just wanted to compose a list of a few memorable rides we did at Henry Coe. Click on the ride to see comments and descriptions, where usually ride reports are linked. Overall, it runs in reverse chronological order (but not set in stone).

"Did you get the license plate?" Mr. Mud asks while adjusting his body position on the couch cushion with a grimace on his face. Roxy, all her 14 pounds, rocked from his one leg to the other, but she seemed undisturbed at all. She did not see us the last two nights, so she's content to get her lap …more…

mudworm ~A great day riding at Coe. Mr. Mud was in the lead pretty much all day, but I was happy with my own riding. Was a good day for cleaning — I rode no dab on most trails except for Center (Not) Flats where my new rear tire seems to slide constantly on the loose surface. …more…

I'm proud to announce that we did it — Erik is now an official Hard COEre 100 (mile) finisher, and yours truly is a Hard COEre 100 (km) finisher as well as the course record holder. Yeah, as our dear friend Stephen once said, screw modesty! …more…

It was hot indeed — this hot.

The weekend started on Friday afternoon. Made a last minute decision that I would ride over the hill to meet up with Mr. Mud so we could ride up B-OO-B (Bohlman – On Orbit – Bohlman) together. I had to carry our tent poles in a backpack hoping to get them fixed at Mel Cotton after the ride. …more…

Announcement: The most complete account of this ride with many excellent photos, videos, and stories is actually on MTBR. As much as I love it when you, my reader, stay on my blog, I must say you'll like what you see in that thread more. But still, following is my initial account of the ride…

Since we have been away from Henry Coe (esp. long rides we used to do) for so long, when we thought about doing a fairly long ride this weekend, I naturally thought about my first ride at Coe (see MTBR thread: First time to visit Coe. Route suggestions and first aid preps? ) . …more…
