This past weekend my buddy and I decided to ignore the forecast of high wind and rain and investigate the Quaking Aspen trail, an easy singletrack near Ft. Wingate. It was also the inaugural trip for my new Motobecane Outcast 29, my first SS MTB.
We did the loop consisting of Quaking Aspen, Turkey Nest Trail, and Y2K trail for a total of about 9+ miles. The first 3 and a half miles were a uphill through autumnal colors and a bit of bedrock followed by a nice winding singletrack down hill with some minor technical bits.
Nice signage along the route.
typical of the first section of the QA trail.
The start of the bedrock.
At the bottom of the valley, there was some mud. Nasty, sticky clay that will likely be with my bike to the scrapheap.
All in all a fun ride and the oft-dismissed Moto Outcast performed well,
