    Blue Dots

    I was so worried that this weekend would be a wash after a few days rain. Nope. Headed up to the Dots and was rewarded with a great ride.

    It's an "it's all in my head" thing. I' ve sucessfully ridden it a couple times just fine, and then after crashing on it once, I get brain lock every time I roll into that thing.

    Ah yes, I know that well. I didn't get down it myself, we were riding it from high right, cutting all the way down to the left and off the small drop. I made it to the start of the drop, but something wasn't feeling right. Maybe it was that I was about to pinch flat my front tire at 5 mph?

    I need to go back and give it another go.

    Yea, I also look at the "start high on the right, cut to the left: as the line to go. The rocks in the center look like they would just kick the rear wheel up, and then over you go. I too need to go back and run laps on it, with arm and leg armor.

    Nederland. They should be on the most recent front range trail maps. That's all I can tell you, or my neighbors will get more upset with me than they allready are.

    No Turners for me. Intense all the way, I still can't get over how well the 5.5 rides.

    Karl's wrecking his Flux in the picture.

    Good to know those are clear. Yeah, that is a sketchy section. I usually ride up there alone and would pull up on it since I would envision myself splayed on the rocks for days before someone came by to pick up my carcass. Then I went out with a buddy who just nailed it first go and I followed his tire perfectly. Went left and just got waaaay back behind the saddle. Of course that was last summer and it could be that much nastier after freeze, snow, thaw, melt, erosion, more use, etc. Anyway, beatiful trail and good to know that it's not too messy around there. Thanks, S

    We were gonna ride the DOTs, yesterday as well, but we missed the bus to Ned. Instead, we pedaled around Switzerland and found a sweet network of singletrack and some nice features. The other half of our crew made the bus and reported the same thing about the DOTs. Lovely.
