    I've been up there way back in the day, but it had snow. We started on a trail that headed up towards one of the peaks. If I remember correctly, most of the good trails are closed to bikes.

    Probably just a quick ride through the Corrales Bosque. It's nice that I live within a 3 minute ride to the trail.

    I ended up checking out some stuff in the Manzanos. Unfortunately, all the FS roads are closed for the season, so it was a lot more fire roads than I had expected. I did manage to find an abandoned FS trail from before the fire, though.

    This road was a real slog coming up, but a good 2-3 miles of BiGRinG going back down.

    Some singletrack, too.

    Cottonwood TR. could use a little clearing. I'm not sure where it went back in the day. Looked like it was a nice decent back down to the main road, 422.

    I guess it's sorta like the CT in the Sandias, where the upper most trail is Wilderness. I didn't make it that far up.

    the weather was so nice it would have been hard to have a bad ride.

    Bosque did not disappoint


    All the way down Montgomery traffic stayed far away from us


    <a href="http://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0118141115.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0118141115.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0118141115.jpg"/></a>

    Q:Is the Bosque even mountain biking?
    A: only if you got the proper socks

    <a href="http://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0118141336d.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0118141336d.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0118141336d.jpg"/></a>



    Secret to a good time is spending it with people you love.

    Just had a ride here

    Where are you riding today?-p1130462.jpgWhere are you riding today?-p1130461.jpg

    and here

    Where are you riding today?-p1110917.jpg
    Where are you riding today?-p1110943.jpg
    Where are you riding today?-p1110924.jpg

    I can't explain the appended pic from a bad rain event that required a trail closure, but we rode there too on the way out

    It was all fun and no, it isn't New Mexico, but I do like NM. Had a sky rocket fight on the Rio Grande Gorge bride out of Taos one night and even been to Las Vegas New Mexico. Hope you had your ride somewhere cool. You need bigger lungs at NM altitudes than here.

    Gold Coast Qld Australia. It is a fun launch. All sorts of possibilities from scrubbing to popping.

    WoW! I've been hearing about really bad drought conditions over there. Good to hear and SEE that some places have been spared.

    Those pictures look a lot like where I rode, before it got hit by fire.

    Nice booter!

    The Bosque is fatty friendly. I've really come to appreciate it. There's single track from the South Valley to Bernalillo. I rode the NFH this morning though and it was fun. Bosque tomorrow.

    OK, I confess; only the first 2 pics were taken yesterday, but all the others were taken in the last year. It is not all that lush here right now. We are in a dry Summer spell, opposite to normal.

    Little showers and the odd storm are just keeping pace with the heat. The Kangaroo Grass grows and then yellows-off. The trees get a flush of brighter green for a week and then it all goes hot and dry again. The trails get tacky for a couple of days and then they dry out and become dusty and drifty again. It is better than the torrential rains of the last 3 years, but we are still hoping for a late season dousing.

    Interesting that in those conditions the fauna can flower at "will" when the rains come. We still get 4 seasons here in NM, but I suppose the vegetation would react in much the same way if it were more arid. Thanks for the picks! Are you an Ausie native, or are you from the states?

    I'm riding in the Zuni Mts. again today, not bad for this time of year. I overdressed a little, the afternoon sun is intense, I'll use lighter layers today. Forgot to take my camera, will try for soem pics today.

    I am an Aussie local. I've just hung around mountains a lot in the past skiing. It is interesting you say the fauna can flower at will, rather than flora, because they say kangaroos can stall a pregnancy if the climate is too harsh and then re-activate it when things improve. The plants just go for it every chance they get. The grey gum trees shed their bark twice last year. They go from grey to bright orange for a month or so. Normally summer is green and Winter more browned-off. This summer it's like a traffic light changing from green to yellow and back over and over.

    There is usually a method to my madness, but it usually requires some imagination. I've heard that about Roos before, too.

    Trash Pit today.

    Good to see the likes of onetwothree (four and five were along too)(two?)(to)(2).

    Killer weather, and the trails are doing pretty good until late in the day when the temps really let the mud do its thing.

    Finally cleared all the jumps on Larry's line without hanging up or casing the landings - thanks to Chris for leading me in.

    Missed you Fuglio, but you were there in spirit: It's not exactly a huck to flat, but close!

    I rode there a few times with a friend of mine, whose parents lived out there. There were some pretty cool lines amongst the irrigation channels.

    I was truly too tired to try it. And it's just my luck to clean something like the step down, then wreck myself on a monster like that. Progression. Looks like I gotta go back!

    I wish. Each instance of the rider is a separate image, then I have to cut away the surroundings and merge them. Tedious, but not too bad for a small gap like this. The gap at the other place though, would take a while to stitch together like this

    no riding today but i finally broke open my fork.... Its a special event when you pop a fork open on your own for the first time... All i did was remove the mission control (flood gate) from the damper but daaaaaaaaaaammm. why they put that thing in the fork i have no idea. This thing is plush now

    <a href="http://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0120142046.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0120142046.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0120142046.jpg"/></a>

    also i threw some teflon/plumbers tape on the threads to keep all the buttery goodness from leaking out... next im gonna pop open my manitoue and start playing with oil weights..

    the grub screws on the high speed knob seemed striped so i put the drill to them in an effort to get them out, but instead the ****ing drill bit tightened it more. I put the drill in reverse and took booth grubs out that way.... im goann rebleed the totem and fix the stanchion scratches with sandpaper and super glue( just like lynnlee taught me)

    High gloss fingernail polish works too, it they aren't too deep.

    I have brake hoses, yes. Long or Short?

    I like having a nice compressor. 130 psi comes in handy.

    North Foothills today. Placitas yesterday. After I get another30 or 40 rides in Placitas, I may be able to find my way. The Los Lunas thread has me thinking about next weekend. So many trails, so little time.
