    Where'd you ride today

    Me, I dunno for sure. Had fun though Bankhead Forest in AL was the place. Don't ask me to name trails or how exactly to get there. I had a tour guide, so I just put it on auto pilot and enjoyed the drive and the ride. I know we did the Pine torch loop. Took us about 2hr total for the 13mi. Mud was there, but by the end of the ride was starting to dry out as the sun came out.

    Fun ride overall. Nice to get out on flowing single track and get the tires off the ground some. Have to see how cruzthepug's pictures turned out, but there may be an action shot or two.

    Here are a few pictures I snapped...

    We rode the Pine Torch Loop @ Bankhead National Forest. It was a good day for the big wheels, all three in our group and the only two guys we ran into were all on 29ers .

    I rode in the light rain on Kodiak Island with Barny. Do a search for "kodiak" and you will see more pics than you ever wanted to.

    I rode the Hermosa Creek Trail with my wife.

    It was a beautiful 65 degree day.

    The last picture shows what was single track until the Elk hunters on quad runners got to it. Hopefully it will heal itself by spring. I don't remember damage like that at any other time in the 10 years I've ridden there. Oh, well, at least it was pretty localized.

    Nice CC, that dog is rad. We had one for a while (sheep dog), but he was a bit high strung without something to herd and ended up eating all the lawn furniture Your trail dog looks like fun.

    Wow, depth perception is weird on those. Looks like I am going downhill in the first shot. That drop and roll-in don't look like much either. You wanna hook me up with the high res images of those three?? dbrummett2@gmail.com

    Definatley looks like a good day of riding had by just about everyone! We had a special guest on our ride too. First time in the dirt on this particular trail but she did amazingly well and kept of very well! Especially for being on a brick of a bike with a fork that kinda worked. Really nice shots Tom, I get a little loose on the landing, think I may have hit some leaves while I was trying to bring the speed back down.

    And the RFX was surprisingly good on the steeps and even better in the really twistys. I'm really starting to get a lot more comfortable on this bike. Too bad no one thought to snag a few pics of the drop with the bermed landing Javier and I were hitting!

    And that's not the first drop Layla has followed me off, she's a crazy girl!

    1. Erin (spelling?) building some confidence on a nice steep face.

    2. Javier hitting the stairs next to the steep, complete with big goofy grin.

    happy trails...

    We had a farewell ride for one of our good buds. He is leaving Long Island for Colorado (lucky) front range. Big turn out to say goodbye.
    He will be missed

    Goodbye Monkeyboy

    we also came upon many scary creatures in the forest

    Our friend Helm is in town and we loaned him Barny's Pack for a spin today.









    The trail descends the hill in the background via the young spruce trees. Helm comes from a BMX background and is quite the rider. He doesn't have the smiling thing down quite like Barny though:

    Nice rides.

    Me and my burner saw this on a 30 mile post-cold farmer blow jaunt. Hey gross, but surely less gross that the first 3 innings of the world series spittle fest every night.

    I figured I'd make the drive out to Loveland and ride a new trail. I tell ya, they have some rocky trails there. Anyway, here is Larry surveying the damage from the last fire and a couple more pics.

    Oh yeah, Larry can climb rocks that made me wish for a climbing rope and some anchors.

    The Western Slope ain't any good either.

    The crappy view from the top of the Telegraph Trail today.

    This is my single speed. I don't ride the Nitrous every day.

    I probably could have worded that better. I have been recovering from a cold and yesterday I felt like I was about over it but spent the whole ride blowing snot rockets.

    What can I say? I'm uber-lazy and taking off unused chainrings sounded like "work". The bike will go back to 24 speed pretty soon, anyhow.

    I heard the Grand Valley is all plugged up with California fire smoke, true?

    The haze is thick over here on the Western Slope - worse to day than yesterday. Riding is still great though - perfect temps and dry. Here's the usual ride suspect - Three Gulches to Skeeter Ridge, to Faerie Trail to Bogus and down Blue Ribbon.

    I got a lunch time assault on the Hall Ranch Rock garden today.

    Can't stop myself with the nice weather.

    (yeah, the photo is from the other day when I was messing around with timer shots, but it's the same trail)

    Sorry no pictures, but I was too busy racing as a solo rider at the 24 Hours of Chamberlin Ranch. I'll try and find the few pictures that the crew may have taken and get those posted up.

    It's nice to see what everyone else was doing this weekend.

    This is a nice shot...

    Say, what tire does Barney have on the front? I'm trying a new tire on the back that has a similar tread pattern and was thinking about trying it in the front. I'm a little concerned about the rolling resistance though but I'd think it'd be more of a problem on the stuff you ride.

    A few of us decided to escape the smoke in San Diego and headed to Sedona. It was nice to be back on our bikes and have some clean air for a change. The weather and scenery were perfect!
