The Culvert Trail is named after this culvert (pipe), which it goes
through. From blazing bright sunlight to a 200' tunnel of darkness,
riding in there is like MUni riding at night with no moon!
Julie Young and Jenni White heading down the Confluence Trail, which
is part of the Clementine Loop. Novice riders rode on a flatter, wider
trail. That's Beirne Konarski way back there.
Bay area guy #2 (or was it #3?)
heading down a nasty, technical section.
Jock Young doing the coasting starfish, or otherwise how not to ride
down steep hills.
Julie Young going through a dried up water bar.
It's Bay area guy #1 again, heading down the
Confluence Trail. You can see the river far below. (actually he's #2,
I found out later...)
A gourmet pizza lunch at Original Pete's in Auburn, and the awarding
of dubious prizes. Awards were given for things like youngest rider,
best crash, developing the software many of us used to read the MUni
Weekend web site, and not being able to mount without a ski pole.
Dan Heaton, coming through the Manzanita tunnel. Manzanita trees line
the Manzanita Trail, which may have something to do with the trail's
Carbon fiber unicycle maker Roger Davies (all the way from England)...
and Brett Bymaster were the only riders to attempt this steep section.
Does it look steep? Look at my unicycle there, lying behind Roger in
the picture above. It looks like it's about to slip!
