    This was a great ride last Monday. We are continuing this ride with an emphasis on "mellow" & a new location to change it up a bit...

    That I can probably do (as long as my bent-back hanger holds up before my ordered one shows up)

    Ahh, the ballfields at Far North Bicentennial Park. It does start with "abbott loop trail", but it's misleading, because it's not the same as abbott trail.

    Session 2: Mellow Monday--IditaSport

    We had a GREAT group of guys show up last night! There were ten riders who came & almost every person had a different fat bike brand they were riding. It is great seeing the fat bikes getting this popular! When you ride the trails at night, it's like riding a NEW trail...
    Thanks so much to Steve Ryan who lead the group & showed us some of the lower Hillside trails that most of us were unfamiliar with.

    That's because Elmore was formerly called "Abbott Loop Road" before it was punched through to Tudor, so some main locations along there still bear the name "Abbott Loop...." even now that the road name has changed.

    Mellow Monday IditaSport Ride Dec. 16, 2013

    Mellow Monday:
    12/16 7pm Abbott Loop Trailhead off of Elmore

    Come on out in the fresh snow! 1.5-2 hrs at a reasonable pace. We will work on air pressure because this is critical for riding in deep snow.

    Thanks, Fred Stewart, who lead the ride last night--it was pretty frigid too! We started at 8 below zero & it went down to 18 below on the trails!
