    El Paso/Las Cruces riders check in.
    Anybody down to ride with my in the next few days? I'm down to ride in El Paso or Las Cruces. I live about 1/2 a mile from the trails right by trans mountain. They're really fun.

    Check in guys. Who else is in my area? :)

    Nope, only here on the west side. I barely started MTBing about 4 weeks ago. ;)

    Have you been riding the redd road trails at the top or bottom of dakota ridge , or tom mays state park ? , Where do you start and what have you ridden so far? The trails in the NE are off of MLK Blvd @ Jon Cunningham you can do a good 12 or so mile loop there , the trails are a little harder to find than the redd road trails but are WORTH every second of riding , I have been riding several years here and just discovered the NE trails !! , Dont get me wrong I love riding redd road also ....In my opinion Dona ana trails North of Las Cruces are worth checking out also ......

    I ride the trails that start at Dakota Ridge. I've done the Teeter Totter, Brujos, Docs Drop, Tims Mine, GI Joe, and a few others that I don't know the names to.

    Im ready to try out some really tough trails... But my bikes not. I have a stock Trek 3900 and this things just can't hack. I'm getting fed-up with it because it has such short limits. In the next few weeks or months or so I'm going to buy a new bike. I'm shooting for a Rocky Mountain ETSX-30.

    Thats cool , I am glad to hear you have ridden the teeter , just dont hit it to fast and your good to go , You will enjoy redd road much more when you get a dual suspension , I am riding the NE trails this afternoon with a buddy and you are welcome to join, the ne trails are not as rocky as redd road trails but theres a little bit of technical , we will probabley start around 4 , Not a real fast pace either , but will do a 6 - 8 mi loop ...If you are intrested let me know and ill give you directions ...........paul

    Sounds great. Too bad I have to work. :mad:

    I'm down for the next time you guys hit the trails though. I'll probably slow you down though. I can't go very fast through the trails with the 3900. :(

    Let me know what's up.

    Just got back from the ride in the northeast, missed a good one , but let me know whenever you wanna see technical trail riding ( not dh ) uphill and downhill trail riding , I will show you the most technical trails I know on the west side, or anywhere else in elpaso .....The teeter is called the p2 teeter totter by the way , have you hit the other small wood sections at redd ? . Anyways, let me know, I usually ride redd all the time , ( mostly early morning ,or late evening ) , ive just been riding the northeast side of the mountain recently , because like I said earlier I just discovered how fun the trails are in the NE of transmountain, new single tracks always a goog thing!................

    Me and my friend have been wanting to go out there for the past couple of days but the winds... Yesterday wasn't bad at all but he couldn't make it. Tomorrow is supposed to be bright and sunny so hopefully I'll be out there. :D
