    If you're in good shape, then I really like a double dip - descend Fooses on the first shuttle and have the second shuttle pick you up on the road for a Greens lap after. If you're not that fast, just run a car up there and start earlier, and hitch-hike back up to your car at the end of Greens. Best way to do the Crest imo. It may be mostly descending, but you'll feel pretty beat up by the end.

    We did a trifecta a few years ago (Foose’s, Green’s, and Starvation).
    Anyone wanna do some crest shuttling next week, maybe Thursday before it rains?

    Well we hit it today, the classic way. But as soon as we hit Silver Creek the heavens opened up. Thought about waiting, but just descended in total puking rain. Bailed on Rainbow.

    Wish we did Starvation, sounded better and they beat the storm.

    Agate is a lot more fun if you bail on it before the 20 river crossings. That right hand turn to the highway doesn't take long at all and then you have a shorter shuttle to add in a Greens or a Fooses. Silver kind of sucks IMO, and it's only redeemed by the Rainbow trail, which I actually think is the best part of the classic Crest. But it's a pedally downhill, as noted above.

    Those of you with exceptional technical biking skills should check out Boss Lake by going north from the pass. So gnarly.

    If you love chunk, go farther and ride Long Branch or Big Bend. Hold on for dear life long baby head descents. I like it, I know, that's kind of weird.

    But whatever, Whitepine Canyon Creek is better than all of the rest of it anyway.

    Rode Hall Ranch yesterday, was considering heading up to West Mag but the rain convinced us to stay lower. It sprinkled on us off and on but never really rained hard. Temps were moderate, not hot but never really cold even with the rain. In other words, perfect Hall Ranch riding conditions. Still, on an after work ride, we saw a total of maybe half a dozen riders on the whole thing.

    Too bad it can't always be like that.
