    You must not have the naner spiders there that we deal with here.

    Bet you had a good Monday at work too... seems to work that way when a bike ride precedes it.

    That looks like a great ride. Nice job getting it in before work. Nice job on the timer shots too. Gorilla Pod?

    I'm fortunate to be able to ride every day before work (up at 5:20 on the trail by 5:45 or 6:00, back by 8:00. To work by 8:30) and it does indeed start the day off right.

    KRob, sounds like we have very similar riding schedules...a great start to the day and it keeps the family happy.

    I took the shots of my friend...no timer. Setting the camera up would have been tough, at least with a tripod, it's pretty vertical terrain. I found myself turning the camera on its side more than usual to capture the vertical.

    If I lived in a place like that I would have skipped out of work. Awesome trail and scenery, I'd kill for a road trip to ride something like that.

    Nice!!! I wish I was able to get a ride in before work. I'm in around 5:00 am so afternoons are my time. I love morning rides.

    Wow, that first pic is looks steeeep!

    I stress to much on pre-work rides; What if I get a bad mechanical? Crash? I start work at 7am and I don't feel I'd have enough time. I do my M-F rides after 4pm and the weekend rides as early as possible....sometimes up at 3am

    Stupid work gets in the way of riding

    Matt
    I should be out riding....

    Wow, you have buddies that will get up that early and ride? All my ride partners either have to work early or don't do early mornings no matter what. It would take just the right ride partner to pull off anyway as I'm always fighting the clock with those pre-work rides.

    Do you ride right from your house or do you have to drive to the trailhead?

    And, yes, that is a family friendly time of day to ride. My wife is usually just finishing up her exercise routine when I get back and my son is just getting up.

    I've only been able to convince one of my friends to ride early. Nobody else will even consider it though.

    I'm able to ride from the house, we set it as a priority to have trail access when we were buying. It's good for getting the dogs out for walks too. We're lucky here in Ogden to be able to link together over 100 miles of singletrack with only utilizing under 5 miles of road. We have the bench area, Skyline Trail, Snowbasin, North Fork Park, and a few connector trails.

    I don't take it for granted, having grown up in an area where the nearest trails were a 15 minute drive away and the second nearest trails were a 45 minute drive.

    No one misses you before 7:30.

    I don't know who said it, but it is true... Keeps the family happy.

    I'd love to get to Ogden... The pics are awesome.

    I usually get mine in early... Out riding by 5h15 and suited up at work by 8h15 (work in a school). It does boost the energy levels, but riding more than two consecutive days makes me drag at work.

    IndianTrail

    Most think bikes aren't allowed, but the truth is they're "Not Recommended" by the local trail assosciation. It's because it's very steep, technical, and there's tons of exposure. It's steep enough that most people don't really enjoy it.

    I hesitated to reveal the trail name...hopefully there's not a flood of people up there now.
