    Not bad! I ordered too soon; so a white one is on its way to me. White is still the best background color for the artwork, as it was designed. If I like it, I might get a different color, or a sweatshirt or something...

    Not sure how many people will buy them because of the price (plus shipping), but the cool thing is that anybody who likes it can have one, or the many variations or other products the design can be printed on.

    Back in the day, we made T-shirts to help raise money, but it was always a gamble on how many to order, and a bunch of logistics to order and handle all the shirts.

            Hi everyone,

            As we are getting closer to the CA Muni Weekend, we need to finalize the number of participants doing the epic ride down Mt Wilson (Saturday, Oct 27). We will have at least two of our own cars bringing riders to the top. In addition, we will use a commercial shuttle service to get all remaining riders to the top (about $25 per person). In the end, we will split the costs among everyone doing the Mt Wilson ride (so expect about $15-20).

            Please send an e-mail to b.soja@gmx.at until Saturday, Oct 20, and let me know if you will join the Mt Wilson ride! If you have any other comments or questions, please feel free to ask me.

            Thanks, Ben

                Update on the Mt Wilson / Mt Lowe ride:

                Based on your feedback, we will have around 20-25 riders and 5 dedicated drivers, some with big cars. This means that we won't need to book a commercial shuttle. In case we need more seats, we can share an Uber to get the rest to the top (with the unicycles stowed in other cars). This should actually be cheaper than booking the MTB shuttle and we are not constrained to the shuttle times.

                The whole ride might take something like 5 hours, so please bring your lunch, lots of water, and sunscreen!

                Meeting point:
                Saturday, Oct 27, 8:30 am
                JPL parking lot (N Windsor Ave / Mountain View St, see attached map)

                This is the same location as for the Thursday 4 pm ride!

                  Detailed schedule for Thursday afternoon:

                  Meet at 4 pm at the JPL parking lot, Altadena
                  Don't start too late, it will get dark by 6 pm!

                  Beginner: Gabrielino out-and-back
                  https://www.trailforks.com/trails/lo...brelino-trail/
                  The ride starts and ends at the parking lot, exactly as shown on Trailforks. It starts paved and turns into a mix of single trails and dirt roads. It has some fun creek crossings, too! Please turn around at 5 pm otherwise it will get dark before you get back.

                  Advanced: El Prieto
                  https://www.trailforks.com/trails/el-prieto-trail/
                  El Prieto is a fun and challenging trail with lots of rock gardens. A few sections are a bit exposed, so please be careful. Fit everyone into as few cars as possible, and shuttle to the end of El Prieto Road (10 min drive). Park on the street somewhere before the Cul-de-sac. Ride to the start of El Prieto like in this Strava activity: https://www.strava.com/activities/1038816546. After you finish El Prieto, continue downhill, and head back to the JPL parking lot. Get the drivers back to their cars on El Prieto Rd and bring them down to the JPL parking lot.

                  Post-ride:
                  Meet at "Tacos Poncitlan" on Lincoln Ave for some authentic tacos
