It was pretty low key this year, just three of us out riding, Bullet, myself and Arden. There were some organized rides and parties up North, but we would rather just ride than socialize. We went back up to Pine Hollow expecting more snow (from two storms last week), and nicely packed trails. It was […]

We haven’t been posting much lately, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been riding. Fall is pretty busy with the high school mountain bike racing season. My son raced on his team (sophomore) and Bullet is the head coach of his local high school team and has two daughters racing. This takes up nearly every […]

Tomorrow evening, Thursday, June 30, 6:00 pm we will be doing a basic clinic on bikepacking. We will also be showing slides of our recent attempt on Kokopelli’s Trail.

In fact, we all admitted that this was tougher than we anticipated. There was nothing too technical or too difficult about any […]

Day 2: Bitter Creek to Entrada Bluffs Luckily the wind died down that night and we all slept pretty well. The sun came up awfully early it seemed, but with those wide open desert spaces, there are no mountains to block the rising sun. The views from the top of this plateau were spectacular, from the […]
