So me and Ryan headed out for some Gold Canyon action. After failing last week we went to have another go at a ride, he had never been to Gold Canyon and I figured it'd be great. We got rolling by 3pm and it was HOT. Cloudy and beautiful by the mountain but HOT! The trails were a complete mess from the rainfall, ruts, loose rocks, sketchy washes. It was wearing down on Ryan especially since I kind of misread his bike skills and jumped the gun on this ride. It was slow going over the place and I was shocked how abused the trails got. We did make it out alive and he had a few scratches and hopefully he will want to ride with me again.
