Beauty of Friday

With some overnight rain Friday was the day to go out and reap the reward. The forecast called for overcast but the sun was gloriously shining through beautiful stormy clouds creating quite the scene. Mixed up the loop and enjoyed a refreshing mix n match, closed out the week on a beauitful one for sure!

Moody Skies

Rain was in the valley Thursday, I was ready for it and luckily it never got me while I was out there, the moody weather was a nice sight, the riding was great and actually quite warm. I rode a standard loop, not very exciting but mission accomplished.

New Chainfruit trail

Just down the road Usery created the chainfruit trail, I have ridden the new trail next to it as well Lost Sheep, but wedndsday was the day to go test it out. Not expecting much I had a good rip up and down the mountain and over to the new trails, unsure of my loop entirely I went for Chainfruit, nothing more than expected other than cozy pretty trail. Then down Lost Sheep and then some filler miles and back to Chainfruit and up Lost Sheep and onwards to the vehichle happily.

Riding gloves

Temperatures took a dip and thoroughly enjoying wearing warmer clothing and still being so warm during a ride in the middle of winter in shorts and a long sleeve shirt. I don't ever wear gloves but I must say I have enjoyed wearing them last ride and this one. I rode a standard Hawes loop happily on a great morning.

Scorpion Trail

Here we are, into December and it's cruising fast! The weather has been fantastic, the riding quite good and all things. I saw a ew section of trail people were riding last weekend so I went out to see what it was like. I parke and had a loop in mind, it turned out it was quite good loop as I rode The NRA trails to High Horse which was soooo good riding in the other direction which was alot more fun. Then I returned on Wild Horse happily on a marvelous desert morning. I located the new Scorpion trail and off I went, it was a mild Downhill trail with some berms dips and turns, by the end of it I was hoping for a new return trail which is in the works I hear, I returned back up it and then passed my car to add up a 15 mile Monday morning jaunt. New trail was good for what they have to work with, high horse is where the $$$ is at in my opinion.

Week Ender

Very cool and cloudy after a bit of rain on friday, trail was dust free, body was just fine, I had multiple plans in my head for friday ride, it all crumbled when I got lazy and ended up just completing a happy loop and I felt fullfiled and headed home complete for the week.

Mine with a view

I finally talked myself into breaking away from the repetitive routes and headed up to Mine in Hawes. Nice views and change of trail for that little stretch, enjoyed it quite well.
