    Greg - it was a pleasure to ride with you once again. Now you just need to get the family out for a visit and convince them that the SW is the place to be.

    Must be tough to head back to Boston after all that. Glad you had a good time dude. Next time you gotta add Milagrosa to the list.

    Great Video

    As usual Kathleen, you and the people you ride with display the mad skills.
    Better than most, not as good as some.

    My strategy is to surround myself with talented riders and then maybe some of the skills will rub off on me

    He did rode Hairball and the rest of the DD/not T100 goodies last year. Some of Tucson's finest are definatly on the short list for next year.

    I'm working on getting him out in the summer so that he can experience Flagstaff.


    Great trip as always Greg. You always have a room out west. And I will try to find the time to get back to N.E. I feel the pull of HP and the LW.

    It was great riding with you as well.
    We did a bit of a twist Sunday to the route you listed.
    National>Holbert>Road to Corona Loma>?? Trail>Desert Classic back to Kathleens. Super fun stuff. You guys are really lucky to have a spot like S. Mountain right at your back doors.

    Even better by climbing Kiwanis to Telegraph rather than schlepping up the road. Kiwanis has a bunch of fun techy climbing and very little is HAB.

    Hey Greg, you guys made the better choice by riding back up the road on Sun. I had to ride through a ton of mud on the canal bank. A couple sections were at least 100 ft long. Bike and me were covered....Tasty too

    very cool.
    2 more trails I have not yet ridden. And I am not quite sure where Telegraph is as I went right by it on Sunday. (sorry Kathleen)

    Kiwanis sounds like the way to go. I did enjoy the road ride up though for the views and effort. If South Mountain was my go to ride spot I would not be riding my mountain bike up the road often. I say keep the mtb on dirt the road bike on road.

    Again thanks to everyones comments and route selections and all that jazz.
    This is why AZ is ruler!

    should have jumped in for the full pull son.
    Did you at least catch the full moon in the low clouds view?

    Oh yeah, I got a couple of shots from the roof of the house. You can tell how much later I would have been by the sunset pix though, much darker in the ones Kathleen took...

    Christmas

    In Tucson we have an event we now call the 8ish Days of Christmas, but the name may change cause in it's 2nd year it was about 3 weeks of riding from before Christmas till after New Years. Great way to try most of the trails in the area.
    Late in the year you can follow the threads on TucsonMTB.
