    Finally Arrived in Vegas!

    So I'm here! Who wants to show me around? I'd really like to see the Bears Best loop, as its going to be my go-to ride from the house.

    I don't start work until Tuesday, but possibly thursday. I DO have lights, but would prefer initially to see the trails with daylight.

    Post here, or PM me!

    Where's cottonwood? Send me some directions and I'll be there. I have a very vague idea, but no clue where the TH is.

    How many miles you planning?

    Just put "Bike Outpost" (a bike shop in the little town of Blue Diamond) into google maps and you are set. We can just meet at the bike shop.

    Damn! I just saw this post and would have loved to gone, but I now have plans for 8:30. How about Monday morning?

    And thanks for the tour of Cottonwood today, GuyCool. Was a good loop for sure. I REALLY gotta work on my technical climbing!

    One thing's for sure . . . riding out here is very different than SoCal!

    What trails did you ride at Cottonwood? If you're looking for something a little cooler and different Bristlecone Pine is real nice right now. I rode there yesterday and the dirt was very moist, and grippy from the rains. No mud as well.

    Just a heads up, I just finished my very short ride at BBT. It's a soup bowl. I spent more time avoiding puddles than enjoying my ride. I ended up taking the first trail out so I didn't mess anything up. I saw a good amount of guys heading up to the TH on my way out, so I hope it doesn't get all rutted out.

    You know, I'm not entirely sure . . . it was 15 miles and 1300' elevation. Some names that are familiar to me are Landmine, Black Velvet, Late Night, Little Daytona, Little Viagra and then we hit the BFR. I'm sure there were a few others in there too, but I don't know. Also passed by the bottom of the Hurl, which I'd like to scramble up at some point.

    Well thats a change . . . I haven't had to deal with mud for a looooong time. Though in MI, I HATED March and April because the trails were basically off-limits due to the spring thaws. I'll keep off for now.

    I'm sure it will be dried out by the afternoon, and definitely tomorrow morning. Even after rain I rarely see that much muck on the trails. It must have rained hard over there last night.

    I rode the BBT yesterday and it was definitely dry. Only a few puddles here and there in the typical spots. Though I was surprised at how much damage had been done by the rain.

    Yeah^ it got hammered pretty good. It seems anything with <2% slope had running water and anything less had a lake on top of it. So, it actually held up fairly well. There's a nasty cross rut on "dos" at about the halfway mark that could put a rider down, I'm sure the bad parts will get fixed once the monsoon season settles.
