    Gimpy Goat's High Country Stroll

    Ride name credit goes to Guacamole.

    You know it hurts when in the 1st 10 miles of a 40 miler your GPS shows 3,000 ft of climbing

    But it did allow some views

    The man, Ingluis...riding a singly speed and crushing us on all the climbs

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/goatshell/7356325902/" title="P1080054 by Goat in a Turtle Shell, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7229/7356325902_f134fa4beb_c.jpg" width="800" height="539" alt="P1080054"></a>

    Sweet! I know this, but you are skirting the legality. Still, another reason why these types of areas need to be open to mountain bikers. What good is having a trail that disappears because nobody is using it?

    Its been used and continued to be used on some of the Breck races which courses are approved by the FS and on the map. So there is no skirting legality
