The So Cal muni scene is back on the map once again following today’s reunion ride at Suicide Connector in Los Angeles. Attendees included Phil, Ilan, Spencer, Morgan, and myself. (The following riders could not attend because they were all temporarily broken from non-unicycle related injuries, and were deeply missed: Largo, Josh, Julian)
Our first strokes reminded us that regardless of how temperate it is in the rest of California, Suicide Connector always seems to be at least 10 degrees hotter than anyone signed up for. Now add some rocks, a dizzily steep doubletrack, and five out-of-shape uni geeks, and the trail begins to earn its name. But despite our complaining, we managed to tackle the descent like seasoned warriors. MVP goes to Spencer, who busted the biggest air on command.
Having recently relocated back to So Cal, it was real treat and inspiration to ride with my old buddies once again. I foresee many more ride reports to come.
