Nice and *Intermediate* MTB Ride, Classic Phils Loop

My ride leading debut,  filling in for Bonnie's popular "Nice and Easy" Wednesday ride.  This will be sort of a classic Phils loop beginning with Bens to Rd. 300, ride up to next step, then Storm King, COD, ELV to the Flaming Chicken, back down on Phils.  At this hour it should be relatively cool and we shouldn't encounter much congestion on the trail.  This is NOT a beginners ride, more reasonable- intermediate pace on fairly non-technical  trails.  We will regroup at major intersections, nobody left behind.  Please be on time, with a fully-functional bike, and be prepared to stay moving once we kick it off.  Figure about 2 to 2  1/2 hours.   Post-ride debriefing at Brother Johns on Galveston.

    You did great, Tim. I was watching you navigate the technical bits and I learned a few things. You move that bike around well.

    Thanks, Harry, for a great ride and "debriefing" afterwards.
