El Corte de Madera Creek - July 28, 2009

Distance: 18.4 miles Ascent: 3372 feet Moving time: 2:39 hours

Rode the periphery of ECdM with the Which Way Riders group. This was billed as a gut ride, so only the fast guys showed up.

To save time, we rode along Skyline to the CM02 gate and rode up Sierra Morena, did a quick regroup, and headed down Fir and Tafoni to El Corte de Madera Creek. We did another quick regroup at the junction with Resolution and then headed out North Leaf. A regroup mid-trail and then we tackled South Leaf and Virginia Mill. Now it was time to suffer as we climbed up Lawrence Creek. We enjoyed a bit of downhill singletrack on Blue Blossom before climbing out on Gordon Mill.

I mentioned that we did a few quick regroups. Total break time across the ride was 9 minutes, pretty good for a group of about 15 riders. This was also my fastest pace at ECdM even though I pooped out at the end. Everyone seemed very tired by the time we got back to the cars. Even the meal at Alice's was quieter than usual.
