    Smile Hey biker chix where are you riding this weekend ...

    Just thought posting our weekend ride plans will get a little stoke going to get through the work week !

    So ladies post away !
    As for me, i am taking advantage of a cooling trend (yay) and will ride at
    Ca~nada del oro open space. Close to home, semi remote trails and not heavily used. Oak woods, deer
    Turkeys lions pigs quail coyotes etc.
    My second ride is currently undecided but something with lotta climbing...

    I'm thinking of going back here. They are celebrating the opening of a new trail with a post-ride barbecue.

    I'll be racing at Banner Lakes at Summerset State Park (Iowa). This trail is so tough that instead of socks or a t-shirt for pre-registering, you get a whiskey glass! LOL

    Not sure if I'm looking forward to it or not...

    Long Beach - as in near Wainfleet? If you are bringing your bikes, come and check out the trails in the Hood in Port Colborne! They are a BLAST!!

    zazzafrazz - can't make Long Beach but if you're ever visiting Burnt Hills and want to ride, let me know. I'm not too far away.

    Here's a pic from the Pittstown grand opening ride yesterday. Great ride with barbecue and beer after.

    I spent the weekend in Whistler, BC; one day riding the rocky singletrack in Pemberton and the next on Whistler singletrack. Weather was perfect, food and beer excellent

    In 2 weeks time it's off to eastern Washington for a week of sub-alpine singletrack

    Riding Esmeralda Peaks north of Cle Elum for a warm up then to the Kettle Falls area for KettleFest (5 days of riding & camping in the Kettle Crest range e.g. Sherman's Peak, Copper Butte, Jungle Hill, Taylor Ridge). We rode a couple of trails here last year and liked it so much we're coming back again

    No riding this weekend for me... a wildfire broke out near my town, and the smoke has been horrendous. I (smartly) decided to save my lungs and stay indoors. I'm really itching to get on the bike, though... thinking I might have to escape down to northern Colorado to get out of the smoke a bit (I live in southern Wyoming)

    2WD - have fun in Kingdom! It's great riding. It can get crowded on the weekends, so you may want to plan your riding to avoid the crowds. Here is a gallery with some routes I've taken: Kingdom Maps Photo Gallery by j_harvey at pbase.com. Most of the routes start from town. We shuttled our cars for some of the routes to avoid some climbing. The first map is one of the most popular routes. People ride it counter-clockwise. This is similar to the route they often recommend at the Kingdom Trails office. On the Saturdays, a lot of people start this route around 10am or 11am, so if you want to avoid crowds, either start early or do the east side of Darling Hill road first, then take a break, then do the west side later in the day. Darling Hill Road runs along the top of Darling Hill so if you ride away from the road, it's mostly downhill and towards the road is mostly uphill.

    The trails in the Pound Cake, Fence Line, Pasture Point area are quite rooty, so if it's wet and you don't like wet routes, avoid them. These are some of my favorite trails (especially Coronary Bypass) and if you don't mind roots, don't miss them (even if it is wet). Make sure your tire pressure isn't too high or you'll bounce around.

    They sell sandwiches on the top of Old Webs on Saturday and Sunday and there is water there to refill bottles and clean bikes if necessary.

    If you're looking for a place to eat, Willy's in town is great (make reservations on weekends). Check them out on-line. You can also get take-out pizza and meat for grilling there. If it's really hot, jump in the river behind the bike shop after a ride.

    Have fun!

    EyeLook@Rocks -

    Here they are! Sorry, no action shots yet, and sorry for the messy shop! And, of course, I banged up the frame first ride on a bunch of rocks that were under a bunch of poison ivy and I've got one nasty gross rash on my leg now! Good times!

    Oh sick Stripes! Hope it wuz fun!

    We ended up in Phoenix. In July. Thanks to the whims of my crazy family who decided to have a little bit of a spontaneous reunion including my Mom & niece from the east coast, I had to oblige...

    On the 4th, my AZ cousin who rides recommended a 6am start, and that combined with some unusual cloud cover meant we actually rode South Mountain in July and didn't suffer heat stroke. National trail was gnarly! I think I will have to give that one another go sometime (in mid-winter).

    After that, we headed to the north rim of the grand canyon to ride the rainbow rim trail. This was the most beautiful, magical, unspoiled forest trail I have ever ridden. 18 miles of smooth, flowy singletrack through ponderosa and aspen forest interspersed with grandiose views into the canyon. Unreal! We camped right on the rim, too.

    Then we hit up St. George for a day and rode Zen trail, which was hotter than hell, but we have been there before, luckily.
    Half the planet is deep into bloody tribal mayhem. We’re just riding bikes (and drinking beer) here.

    There's a "sticky" on the VT,ME, NH Regional forum for Kingdom Trails, and info scattered in other threads there. It can get a little busy on some weekends, but if you like empty trails, an early start will get you that anyday. Buy a trail pass when you arrive if you can because the trail center doesn't open real early. Have fun!
