    Best trails East of ABQ

    Finally got back to some BTMing (too much road biking due to rain). Got out to do my favorite loop, Tunnel, Otero and around David Canyon. A few of the less traveled trails around David Canyon now have new signs Un Poco Loco, Pirito Bonito and 3 Bottles. Hats off to all the work that went into the trails, I owe you guys a beer. All the rain has lots of new growth popping up and I fear that the trails will fade-away if they donít get used. So get out and ride themÖ

    Nice to know that they are official, but someone does not like it.

    Thank goodness that's settled

    Well, at least we know what the sign says.

    Those don't look official. From the pics, the don't comply with EM-7100-15, "Standards for Forest Service Signs and Posters", nor are they installed properly

    OMG! They actually had to pay someone to come up with that shiat? That explains everything Bruce.

    BTW...Do they have instructions on the BR walls as well? You guys probably could not put the toilet seat down without some sort of schematic.

    I'm not a Sanitary Engineer, but I'm sure there are field manuals available. The FS probably uses the DoD manual for that type of thing.

    Did you notice that this is only part 1?

    Try looking up the "mil-spec chocolate chip cookie recipe". If I recall it is over 24 pages long.

    Of if you prefer coffee. Why not check out the HTCPCP/1.0 http://www.unix.com.ua/rfc/rfc2324.html

    this loop you did, how long did it take to complete? and what's the skill level needed to ride, if you don't mind me asking Your map was helpful in locating the area - MapSourced it, but just curious on the ride itself. thanks.

    The loop is almost 23 miles and I think I was out there 3.5 hours. Itís tight in spots and technical in a several spots so I would say it tips the scale on the moderate.

    Thanks for the info. pulled out the Cedro map and got a good read on it. Since I haven't been riding long, it looks like I can make another loop until I'm ready for a longer ride.. I'll have to hit this up soon. My "want to ride" list is growing!

    Kind of puts my Friday ride into perspective, thanks Rich. I have done that loop a few times, with the exeption of 3 Bottles, and I had no idea that there was that much elevation.
