    Just got back from a quick afternoon shred session. Fixed up the 2 big hills also

    My phone isn't turning on so we'll have to assume everyone is one time tomorrow.

    Also after we meet at wally world in globe at 8 we will head up the road to meet up with 14D.

    OK, I gotta know how all these damn "shuttles" work. I'm not knew to mountain biking, although I'm definitely no hard-core DHer, but just getting back into it after several years of laziness and I see Globe Shuttles, Sunrise Shuttles, everywhere is a shuttle...

    How's it work? Is there a company that sits at that trailhead above and shuttles MTBers to the top of a mountain?

    One of these days I'd like to join everyone but I know my skill level is not there. I'm sure no one wants some dumbfuk noob slowing the flow down. I'd have to get some armor, too...

    Nope man I am just a rider with a truck who doesn't mind showing the goods to people while bettering my chances of getting more runs in a day. I will run shuttles anytime I am riding somewhere that we can shuttle . Doesn't matter if its south mountain, Globe or prescott . I generally accept donations towards gas and or driving a run or so . Driving 1 run is usually mandatory unless I don't know you enough to drive my truck with care.

    However there is a group of riders who offer more of a service as far as shuttles and trips go .Haven't been on any of those as they seem to ask more than I am willing to pay to ride .

    I gotta bail unfortunately. Got pretty banged up at the dirt jumps last night and I'm still too sore to ride. I'm usually off during the week so hopefully I can make it next time.

    That's cool. So, how do the logistics work? You load the truck up go to the top of the mountain and bike down. Now your truck is at the top and you're at the bottom...

    Simple everyone meets or rides to globe or the shuttle spot together. Then we load up into my truck leaving the vehicles at the bottom of the mountain so people can bail as they tire or get injured.

    Once up top everyone but one rider unloads. The one rider drives down while the other riders ride down . Next trip someone else drives a turn and so forth. At the end of the day all riders end up at the bottom close to their ride so they can leave without driving to the top again just to get vehicles.

    works good as the driver each run is getting well needed rest after running many runs in a row. Like today we ended up with 4 guys by 2:30 we each had 3 runs in and each drove a run. That was with dropping in for first run at 9am , a long safety meeting and about a 45min lunch.

    Me and my buddy also run solo runs and shuttle each other when no one else wants to ride. Well worth it Freight train down to pick up is 6.8 miles and 3300ft decent ice house is 5.8 miles to our pickup and 3098 ft decent, kellner is 7.9 miles and a 2900ft decent to our pickup and sixshooter is 7.1 miles to our pickup with 2800ft decent

    Okay . So who has the next days off . I am already itching to get back up there. I had at least a couple more runs in me today but I guess I have been running these trails so much I am conditioned for the altitude.

    Man Bob trails are blazing more so freight train as its a wide open runner with fast lines. Especially after I fixed both the big hills uptop yesterday their still gnar but doable at way faster speeds than earlier in the year. Also for anyone reading there is a new waterbar on the first big hill right past the huge patch of dead fall on the right ,don't let it catch you off guard .

    Oh and Kellner is closed due to the mills2 fire.It is not far from the fire.

    Hopefully I'll be ok and won't need surgery, unless I'm feeling significantly better tomorrow I'll be going to see a doctor. I'll be really pissed if I miss the trip, it will have to be pretty bad for me not to go. I'll let you know.
