*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Afternoon rain is predicted, so this nearby, short ride just might beat the rain. A ride sheet will be provided but rain dancing freelancing is expected. Thanks to the addition of a new goat in the area, San Felipi and Bernal have moved from this ride to other rides. But you may still add them, if you wish. Several nearby goats, like Quimby, Higuera and Mt Pleasant, aren't listed above, but may be included. Personally, I stay off of steep climbs if the roads are likely to be wet.
