  Sunday Jan 4: Meeting/Group Ride, New Melones, Angel's Camp, CA

EnĚdo   ["in-dough"] v.   1. an unscheduled trip over the handlebars, normally caused by excessive front brake while
going downhill   2. a stupid mistake.   Usage:   "Cris did an endo on the lower trail at Melones yesterday"

Hey it could have been worse, even though I munched the left half of my saddle, took a handlebar to the chest, busted my
knee, and decimated my GPS mount (GPS is fine). Note to self:  don't do that again.

The remaining 20 miles of the ride went well, with a nice long climb up the hill by the road. Dave got to really wring-out his
newly built bike. The weather was perfect.
