    ABQ this weekend

    My significant other and I will be in ABQ this weekend, we were wondering if it will be worth hauling bikes from Oklahoma to ride this weekend. Is anything rideable out there?

    Yes, you got lots of options. All of the riding is good and all the riders are friendly. Its definitely worth bringing the bikes.

    You're a lawyer from Tulsa.


    Neat trick, huh?

    My sorcery aside, yes, bring the bikes.

    White Ridge Bike Trails


    Thats your best bet oln and slow. meet them dudes and ask to tag along or go at it alone. You wont be let down the riding is awesome its not very technical but there is some climbing. The scenery is out of this world. and its alot of fun.

    Actually we are going to ride Red Mesa instead. But White Mesa is a great ride and not hard to find your way around. There's always plenty of people around to point you in the right direction.

    White Mesa is a great ride. However, it can be quite windy out there and more so in the afternoon. An early start may give you a better ride. Enjoy!

    Don't know, compared to the Bandos at RM it seems pretty tame

    2 inches more vertical and I go over the bars. This prediction was confirmed experimentally

    Sorry, no pics. I'm not much of a photographer, My riding is not that noteworthy, nor am I photogenic. But we had a good time anyway.
