    haha. I can't blame you, I wouldn't want to ride those trails on a singles peed.

    Like I said earlier on the first quarter of Tung Nut....that trail can Tounge my Nut.

    Worst climb was the first one out in the meadow in the sun. The trail was very rough and it felt like I was cycling through Africa.

    Overall I thought that was a great trail though. It was great getting out of my comfort zone and really pushing myself. I really enjoyed the last half of Tung Nut with all long somewhat technical descents, switch backs, and fast turns. Next time we need to check out those other loops towards the back of the park.

    I rode out there after work this afternoon... skipped the first part of Tung Nut and rode the uphill along the powerline road instead, then hooked back up to Tung Nut at marker 10. That section from 10 to 13 kicks my ass on the uphills. One day I'll be able to stay on the damn bike through that whole part. I will, right?

    I was thinking. Next time, we should ride the power line road to bypass that first quarter of Tung Nut. We can drop in at that awesome extended downhill section and work from there. That should leave us enough ass to do the other loops.

    But only after November.

    Yeah always skip that crap field riding section. Most of the locals do that, especially in the summer. It's miserable out in that heat so I like to spend as little time exposed as possible.

    Yea, no one in their right mind voluntarily rides the first 1/4 of Tung Nut. I've been forcing myself to lately just to train for the upcoming race, but it sucks.

    As a side note, its MUCH more enjoyable in reverse, because its mostly downhill you can really push it through those sweeping corners, and my full suspension just soaks up the rough stuff at speed

    I made a new map, using gps data from Strava and then traced and colored it. Still a work in progress. Let me know if I made any mistakes!

    It won't let me post images.. so remove the parenthesis

    That's a great map!! I've mapped out most of the trails, but not the ones in the far back. Thanks for posting.
