First Dirt Hombres Ride of 2014

The Dirty Girlz...

The day started out cold, damp and foggy with a heavy frost covering the ground. It looked like winter conditions and I reached for my warm riding gear.

As seems to happen so often on Vancouver Island as we rolled up to the Hartland parking lot it was sunny and a lot warmer.

We had a Dirt Hombres ride scheduled for 2 weeks ago, but a cold that was going around decimated the interest levels for a group ride. With the virus getting beat down and folks missing their bikes we managed to get a few hearty souls out on the trail together yesterday.

Besides the usual crew we had two new riders join us. Hombre Paul was riding a yellow Rocky Mountain Element.

Hombre Dan...

Hombre Dan was riding a Transition Bandit 29er and representing the Big Wheels!

It was great having some new people on the ride. Paul and Dan fit right in with the Dirt Hombre vibe. Michael had blinged out his Heckler so we got to see the lighter and more orange rig in action.

The ladies...

The Dirty Girlz set off on their own ride at first, but after injuries whittled down their crew they decided to put on their sombreros and join the Dirt Hombres for the second half of the ride.

Trails were in perfect condition with almost no wet spots and our version of Hero Dirt. Get out there and shred.
