Ride Summary: The original motive behind this and all Capitol Forest Sick
Puke rides was and is to put down some big miles in Capitol Forest with some
friends and sample the best single track it has to offer. The routes aren't
always logical on the map, but reflect the group's favorite routes and trails of
that year, locals "cherry picking". The original intention of the 2002 route was
a complete circumnavigation of Capitol Forest via trail. We had the ambition
but not the legs (or the night lights). At Rock Candy we realized we were
running behind schedule so we bailed off the trail and pedaled for Porter
Creek Camp and Wedekind via B-Line and C-1000 and then hooked back
up with the single track and our route there. We rode with a support vehicle
providing refueling stations every 15 miles or so. A fun ride and the beginning
of an annual tradition. It took us 9.5 hours. First ridden by Don Hecker, Jim
Albright, Jim Graham and Austin Hildreth on October 25 2002.
In 2004 a complete circumnavigation via single track was completed solo and
is listed in the ride guide on this website titled "Outer Limits".
We finally Sick Puked The Outer Limits in 2009.
