Default Saturday 6/29 north side ride?

There's an inexplicable opening in my schedule this weekend, at this point Saturday morning is available. Would like to sneak in a ride- anyone up for some throttle turning this Saturday? thinking Rollins/Jenny/Mammoth/Moon/Yankee/Kingston area.. park near Tolland?

Becky is riding the MS150 this weekend so I'm on kid duty. I need to find someone to pawn my kids off on.

You might consider starting at West Magnolia (assuming it is open now) and riding that section a bit - there are a few fun loops and spurs to play on. You can then drop down to Rollins Pass Road (near the 1st railroad bridge) and cruise over to Mammoth.

Checking out the MVUM now, that does look interesting. I'd likely still park in Tolland though then just drive down to it, that way I could gas up again and hit the south side as well. Looks like quite a bit to explore in there though, cool.

Wanted to ride singletrack up in Rand but got stuck helping my wife early, riding Day in the Dirt at IMI Sunday

I say yes, technically a plate would be required to bounce around between Magnolia and Mammoth. Not if we just did the Magnolia area though.
