OK heres Part two of the Whole Enchilada
The UPS singletrack reminded me of Goosebury and Little Creek riding
Unfortunately while I was stopped taking pictures further down the trail Tom crashed and hit his head , he ended up with a gash around his eye
After we had patched him and filled him up with Advil we resumed our journey down the trail - riding a bit slower as Tom was still hurtin
We took the easy route on the way down - which seemed to have more singletrack than I remembered if you took the notch route - but I may be wrong as it was ages ago i walked the notch
When we got to the Sand Flats Road junction Tom and Bill decided to Head back down the road as Tom was still not feeling good and wanted to get his cut seen too sooner rather than later, they both insisted I carried on and finished the trail , as I'd flown so far to do it
I've always found this section of the porcupine trail to be the dullest part of the ride, bumping along down a rocky double track for miles really dose not float my boat - but the great singletrack of Burro and Hazard, & UPS made up for it being so dull
Shortly after this picture spot my mind must have been wandering as I rolled off yet another ledge and promptly went straight over the handlebars - luckily I ended up in a patch of sand and I escaped with just a few cuts
Finally the double track was over and it was back to the fun stuff narrow trails and great views on the lower porcupine singletrack
The great thing about messing around taking pictures is your out there immersed in your surrounding so much more than if your just blasting hell for leather down the trail !!!
Back down at the road I headed back to Moab , as the sun was very low it wasn't too hot, I took advantage of the newish cycle path on the way back to Moab
I did cross my mind as I rode back through Moab to the Chili Pepper bike shop that next time I should get the shuttle service to pick me up At the end of the trail
By the time I got back to the SUV I'd done about 36.5 miles
I had a long soak in a Bath before grabbing some Pizza and getting some sleep ready for the long drive to St George the following day
Toms since made a full recovery and apparently hasn't even got a scar from his cut - which is good...
I'll Post More of the trip soon... Zion is Next
