    Smile What a teasure we have

    Just gotback from a trip to Moab. Rode Phils world at Cortez. Then on to Moab to ride The Salt Wash - Soverin Loop, Porcupine and Pioson Spider All awsome trails. But, you know what? We have a treasure right here. Rode my reg ride here in the East Mt. Tunnel-Ortero-David Canyon. Hard to get better than that. We are so lucky to have these and many more great rides right here in our back yard. So whats your fav. ride here at home?

    My house is about a half mile from the midpoint of the Los Conchas to Battleship trail, which is one of my favorite trails anywhere. Pajarito is about a half hour away and has killer riding. White\Red Mesa is great in the winter.

    I have to say that any trail with 'medio' in the name is a pretty sweet ride. Namely, the 'Medio' twins of Rio En Medio and Medio Dia. Too bad they're not close to each other.

    East Fork ranks up there.

    Guaje Ridge/Guaje Canyon tandem is more than enough singletrack to kill a person.

    Goose Lake/Goose Creek running down into Red River is worth mention.

    Heck...I think that's the last few rides I've done roughly in reverse order. Looks like my favorite trails are the ones I just rode.

    Yeah! Let us not forget the FR scene that would not even be close to where it is today without the likes of Rich, Neal, and many others...please excuse me if I don't know all of your names.

    Speaking of Rich ( AKA rsclimb ), he really outdid himself on this one:


    Last Lift Day from R. Strang on Vimeo.

    He has inspired us to do our part here in the Burque. We have been making a few adjustments here and there to the normal loop.

    Nothing big just some interesting challenges to keep the heart rate up:













    Thanks Rich & Gang for all of your inspiration, dedication, and hard work

    The original is gone and this one's been pruned, but I think everything you need to know about RM and the NM board is right here: http://forums.mtbr.com/new-mexico/different-place-different-view-156252.html#post1472722

    Thanks for asking! I'll be here all week. Please tip your server!

    Wow! Didnt know RM was such a deep dark seceret. No wonder I never could get an answer. If someone could PM me with info or possably meet me for a ride? I can keep a seceret, even if tied down to an ant hill.

    Last time I rode RM in October, I didn't get back on a bike for 1 1/2 months and my left leg is still numb from that match.

    Strangely, I have a matching bruise on my right leg today.

    I'm saving RM for when the other areas are snowed in. It'll be a bit longer before I want to venture out there.

    But it is quite a different view.

    Pretty sure I got where it is at. I rode out there twice in the mid 90s. Then it was mainly used by dirt bikers. Dont know what the big seceret is. But thanks anyway.

    Its no secret! It is about 5 miles NE of Cabizon RD on the right. The PL is a little hard to see. Once out there, follow the perimeter trail.

    All you gotta do is look it up. How's that worth labeling as a secret? Public land that can be looked up is no secret my friend. Just because everyone doesn't feel like looking it up for you, or because you don't feel like making an effort don't mean it's a secret.

    I did not ask you or any one else to look anything up for me. I just asked a question. Found it myself before Brians reply. Dont tell me I dont make an effort. You dont know what you are talking about. No room for that kind of attitude.Just a friendly question among friends, I thought. Bad day or what?
