    If you like it chunky and techy...

    Then,you prolly will enjoy The Goat Camp trail,down In the white Tank Mountains in North West phoenix.
    Here's a sample of it.Peace

    Somebody really should go in & pull a bunch of those rocks out. It would ride much better.

    So where is a good chunky and techy ride within 30 miles or so of Albuquerque that is not covered with snow and is ridable this weekend?

    Chunky enough, tho. Good stoke. I personally think you messed up on that ride and should have taken a break at minute 6:06. You let me down, Ramon!!!!!

    Thx for the stoke. Wished we had a south mountain in south foothills

    We don't got a south mountain but we got some similar "scenery" esp in the north foot hills

    I ended up riding the most chunky and techy parts of the Placitas Trails I could think of, while staying out of the wilderness.

    I looked at doing Los Lunas and decided I should start early enough that I could take the train to Los Lunas. And I should do it on a Saturday so if I miss the 6 pm northbound train to get back home, there is an option of catching a later train. I think I will plan on doing it next Saturday.

    The Los Lunas trails are only a few miles from the Los Lunas Railrunner station.

    Using the rail runner definitely cuts down the possible options.
