Re: [RC] [RC] [RC] Swanton Pacific - Kathy Mayeda

As an armchair crew for both rides.... not from 1st hand experience.....
Swanton has a higher humidity index than Tevis.
I did ride a portion of the trail near the Chalks and Westridge.  Views are breathtaking, and the ruts on the ridge road are pretty deep.  Just as you think that you're going to be able to dump off this slow-gowing trail, there's another up and downhill....  A friend of mine who rode the trail the year before told me that if I actually liked the trail, she would never ride with me again!
I would love to do Swanton some day.  Hopefully this won't be the last year!

Please reply publicly, as I, too, hope to do SP, and would like any and all tips about the trail!

I hope I'm not being too optimistic here, but I am hoping to go to the Swanton Pacific ride. Sonny seems to have maintained his fitness, despite the longer than expected layoff due to smoke.


What I'd like to know from those who have done Swanton is "everything" that you can share that would help us get thru the ride. I've been told it is as difficult as Tevis, with different challenges, but I wasn't given any details. So if you'd like to share, privately or publicly, I'm waiting to hear. I love details…what to watch out for, where we'll be able to make better time, where we'd better take it easy, etc.
