    Ride report: Magellan

    Tried a new trail today. It's called Magellan on our local web guide and runs along part of the Tabeguache trail. About 20 miles of double track. Simply put - not really worth it. Since it's about 15 min from our house, I shouldn't complain. The good side was some really nice scenery and about 2 miles of downhill slickrock. It was countered by a buttpile of uphill. There is nothing level on this route. Today was about 95 degrees out there so we were pretty wiped out at the end. Here's a couple of pics. Next weekend we will be joining about 4 other tandem teams in Winter Park, CO (Highs in the low 60's) for some really sweet singletracks!

    Love the scenery. Lots of open area though, so at 95 degrees I'm sure you were really cooked!

    The trails around Grand Junction are known for many things - shade is not one of them. We were definitely cooked. Our Planet Bike cyclometer has a thermometer (which is only accurate enough to use for entertainment purposes) which read between 98 and 111 degrees most of the time. We started at 8:30am but it was already getting up there

    We're looking forward to riding with a few other tandems next weekend. The trails (and temps) in Winter Park are about perfect!! Too bad we forgot the camera or I'd post up a few pics.
