    Kelly’s ride report:

    There were six of us for this mountain adventure ride. From the start, Toby and Kelly could not find the meetup point, although both did show up to meet Gywn and the others.

    Toby and Kelly got lost breaking away from the group, but did catch with the rest of the group on the highway at the start point of Cypress.

    Five of us made it to the top, but Will was using a new/old bike and the seat was not comfortable so he stopped and waited for us at the lookout point. Gywn and Colin need to get home earlier so they start down early.

    Toby, Marty, and I start our way down and as usual, Toby got a flat. I did not see it since I was leading and screaming down like an eagle. This flat was not the usual since Toby had put on new tires on the bike for this ride. The tube and the tire blew and Marty was behind and saw the puff of smoke. Toby was lucky it was the back tire and he was starting to increase his speed to 50 KM when it happen. Toby and Marty was able to change to tube and tire. It just happened that Marty was caring an extra tire.

    We picked up Will and headed the usual Cafe for lunch and talked about our adventure.

    Here are the happy riders:
