    Turkey Springs? (Pagosa Springs)

    Thinking about doing some riding at Pagosa Springs, and I'm not familiar with the trails around there. How would Turkey Springs be on a rigid singlespeed? Or would gears and/or suspension be better?

    I have only ridden those trails once, and I don't have a singlespeed, but there weren't any really big climbs or nasty stuff on the routes I took (which I've forgotten their names, kind of a big loop around the edges). If you know Durango I'd say it was comparable in difficulty to Meadow/Stacy's at Horse Gulch, or Dry Fork.

    Thanks. That matches up with what I've learned. I phoned the LBS in Pagosa Springs yesterday, and they said the trails have ups and downs but not really extended climbs. They said the trails are fairly mellow and that a rigid singlespeed would do fine on them.

    I rode some of the Turkey Springs trails on Tuesday. I didn't get to ride as much of them as I had hoped due to weather, but my rigid singlespeed was plenty of bike for what I did ride. Very smooth trails in general with some rocky sections here and there. I'd characterize my time spent there as pleasant rather than exciting.

    I did see a bear which was pretty cool. Not sure what it was doing, but it was interested in something other than me and wasn't very near the trail.
