    Pueblo, at a different pace

    Changed it up a bit yesterday, bailed on the guys, and talked my wife into heading down to P-Town for some trail riding. It's rare that she agrees, so I couldn't pass it up. I welcomed the change in pace and scenery.


    I love observing how different our perceptions of challenges are...

    ... but how similar the feeling of accomplishment is for each of us afterward.

    I'm lured in by her determination to accomplish big obstacles (on her scale) and her desire to become a better, faster, stronger rider.


    She took lead most of the day, which gave me an opportunity to slow down a bit and take in the scenery...


    That scenery.


    Darn! And it was so tempting.


    There weren't a lot of obstacles on the trails we were riding. I tried to make due were I could.


    And this post wouldn't be complete without the requisite Christmas card shot. You may throw up now.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Thanks for the support, having all the mtb cars filling the parking lot has caught the Park Managers attention. They are starting to realize the monetary income we bring in and are supporting us. If things go well with the equestrians and we are able to get the BUR to approve our request we will be adding 20 miles of new trail. If you haven't check out our new site lakepueblotrails.org. please do. The deadwood is from when they were first building the res. they were removed to open up the water ways. On one of the new trails proposed the trail snakes through an area of deadwood 4x as large. It is freaky but cool and we will be able to build structures with it. If anyone needs an awesome kids bike, check out my add for a 21.5 lb Scott Scale JR. Thanks

    Thanks for the good words, fellas. It's always fun riding with the guys, but its a totally different kind of fun riding with your girl. Those who get to partake in rides with their SOs know what I mean.

    Cool Pics Nick. My crew may have bumped into you and your #2.

    Was that your Audi in the PLot? If so I wanted to ask how you like your Highroller Yaki Rack? I am thinking about getting a set for my Subaru.

    Silver allroad? If so, that was us. There was a silver B7 A4 there too that I think might have had the same racks.

    I don't have a lot of roof rack experience to compare against as I've always been a truck bed man myself, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. With that said, I am pleased with the racks after about four months of use. They're sturdy, easy to load, aesthetically pleasing, and user friendly. My biggest complaint is that my setup tends to make a quiet, but noticeable whistle at freeway speeds; even without bikes on top. Although, that condition would likely change on different vehicles/orientations and I suspect a windscreen would completely eliminate it.

    I was wondering if you have a pic with them folded down? I have been thinking of getting the Thule Sidearm but its a bit bulky on the roof. I am hoping the Highroller is more streamlined.

    Does the cable lock seem secure?

    I don't have any pics of the car without a bike on the roof. However, this might help give you an idea.

    I don't know of any cable lock system that I would consider "secure" from theft. It'll slow someone down, but it definitely will not stop them if they are wielding a good pair of bolt cutters.
