    There's some fun stuff at palmer Park, and there is also a Freeride park that is being built down here and should be sweet.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    For Palmer Park, come south on I-25. Exit onto Nevada. Turn left onto Austin Bluffs. Follow this till Union. Turn right onto Union. Take this till Circle. Turn left on Circle. Turn left onto Paseo (right after the golf course). Follow this till you get past some stables and there is a small parking lot.


    For the freeride park (not really open yet as most of the designs are still getting designed) take I-25 south till Cimmaron. Turn left onto Highway 24. Head west. At the first street past 31st there is a turnoff to the left called Ridge Road. It is the parking lot on the left. The actual land is further up the road from the parking lot.

    I'm going to be hitting the slopes of Keystone the 11th and possibly the 12th. If I'm not up on the 12th I'd be down for showing you around.
