Horse to Horse

Another shot at Horse to Horse. This time we will try to make it closer to 30 miles(a little longer than last time). Riding from Horse Butte to Horse Ridge and back. We will probably just do an out and back like last time. This is a soon to be favorite winter ride in Central Oregon I am sure. There is one fun/easy downhill section in particular I am looking forward to sharing with you. Kind of like the descent from Swamp Wells. I will be scouting the area during the week to keep up on conditions. Ride could be altered due to conditions. I will post thoughts on that subject in the comments section so make sure you RSVP to stay updated. This will be a long intermediate paced ride, figure 4 hrs, bring plenty of food. Weather looks good for this day!

    David, yes all good with us. I did fall on my butt but we turned back early as there too many factors coming together to compute against me. Only me 2nd bike ride this year and on a new bike. Plus that unexpected 25 minute sprint to the start took its toll on me. Thanks for leading the group, I'll be back out when I amore prepared.
