First Snow

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 […]

Bikepacking Kokopelli’s Trail: Part 3

Day 3: On to Fisher Valley After two days, we were 79 miles into this ride and had climbed about 8,000 feet over some pretty technical and rough terrain, and we were feeling it. In fact, we all admitted that this was tougher than we anticipated. There was nothing too technical or too difficult about any […]

Bikepacking Kokopelli’s Trail: Part 2

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 […]

Bikepacking Kokopelli’s Trail: Part 1

We rode regularly through the winter, with many trips up to the groomed trails in American Fork Canyon. Spring wasn’t quite as productive with all the rain […]

There are some great singletrack trails up there that have been packed out and ridden and they were in great shape on Saturday. There were probably 30 people in the parking lot at […]

White Friday—Riding the Mirror Lake Highway

Wednesday night Bullet and I went up to Round Valley in Park City and did a wonderful night ride in the snow. It was our first snow ride of the season. Conditions were excellent with 2 inches of powder over the dirt trails. It was cold but a great ride and we covered 9 miles. While […]

Back to Strawberry Narrows

Last August we did an overnight bikepacking trip to the great Strawberry Narrows trail at Strawberry Reservoir. On that trip we had an epic storm with heavy rain and winds. Because of that, we didn’t ride the whole trail, just the first seven miles to the campsite. That report is here: https://fatbikebrigade.com/2014/08/26/strawberry-narrows-an-s24o-trip-on-fatbikes/ This time it […]
