After so many years, I finally rode down Geronimo on Friday night.
We started out near cactus bikes at 8:30pm, rode up Mormon/National to BV (secret water stash), then down the Geronimo trail. It was a lot more demanding than I imagined (videos make it look like a cakewalk). It is pretty much all doable, but it keeps you on your toes all the way down (not as much so as Corona De Loma, but Geronimo delivers the goods)...
After that, we went up the Mormon trail from 24th st, then back down to the car (about 1am)...I give this loop a pretty decent difficulty rating, mostly because the climb up Mormon was harsh (harsh enough that I am feeling it today still)..
Would I do it again? Hell yes...it was a blast, although going up Mormon was rough, lots of HAB.
Next big SoMo ride I hope to hit Holbert in a similar ride, but will take the road back up to National. Anyone have any comments about the Kiwanis trail? I could see taking it instead of riding road all the way up to National, unless it is too gnarly for me to climb (I mean if it's like going up Mormon, I might as well stay on the road).
