    Shout out to Grand Junction trailbuilders and maintainers

    I know you guys always hear the bad but never the good so thought I would chime in.

    Spending the week here riding and just did Lunch Loop (Pet-E-Kes, High Noon, Holy Cross, bit of Gunni then back on Kurt's Trail).

    Wow are they ever well-signed.

    Boy is the maintenance impressive; incredible use of rock. That must have taken some time

    For the use they get from hikers/ bikers etc (I'm just guessing they're well used since the parking lot is big and facilities are nice) they're still pretty nice and narrow "single"track. Impressive.

    Without fail, everyone we met on the trail (hikers, bikers, dog-walkers) were nice.

    Love the use of terrain. Trails routed on ridges, half-piped rocks, techy uphill and downhill moves on rock features. Not trails for the lazy.

    I rode the new trail last night, I would recommend bringing a 12pack of Coronita's, a beach chair, umbrella...and horsepower. It will be nice next summer, but damn, its the beach right now.

    Rode it Sunday. It will be a great trail once its gets seasoned, but for now, do a rain dance or pray to the anthropomorphized cosmic force of your choice for rain.

    Lunch Loop sampler trails - Grand Junction Colorado from Lee Lau on Vimeo.



    Rode up Pet-e-kes. Then over to High Noon - up Lemon Squeezer - then ambled over to Holy Cross. Then Gunni Loop. Back on Carl's then Bentonite Hill. Lots of scratches but no blood transfusions necessary. In GJ you don't erode the trails - the trails erode you (only half-joking)
