Monday was a day for San Tan, I have not been there in awhile and really did't miss it much but since I have not renewed my pass yet I found 2$ and headed over there. I was thinking of 2 hours but was filled up after 90 minutes. It was nice out, certainly busy out but all was well.

With surprisingly fresh legs I went out Saturday morning before the family arrived on plane to the old trails. Nothing too crazy here just a ride under the warm sun. I am getting very close to getting the Belltown frame all suited up for riding, I can't wait to test it out.
Well I had a nice easy ride back to AZ, it was just me and the dog again so of course my mind was on a a ride where I could safely stuff the doggy in the backpack again. I absolutely loved the idea of riding Flagstaff area, I knew Campbell Mesa already and found it would be easy off the highway and easy on me and the dog. We headed in for a fast and twisty ride through the pines in a nice breeze. It was absolutely outstanding out there, I loved it, dog didn't seem to mind. The car ride back into AZ was surprisingly smooth and nice as well. I guess were back and looking forward to the next adventure.

My kiddo had a play date with his cousins and I was not in need so off I went for a nearby ride. I could have easily gone to Corner Canyon but opted to explore some more Eagle Mountain. It's low valley floor riding but it's plenty good. There has been some new trails out there so I planned to figure some good riding. The goal was accomplished and mighty happily :)
I got my shot and was dropped off at Corner Canyon while my wife was enjoying some time with her friends. Luckily in a way Utah has been dry so there was plenty of trails to hit. I went with the usual, up to the top and a run down Ghost Falls to start it off. It was absolutely killer let me tell you! I made my way back up for more and the headed over on shoreline and into Dimple Dell all the way to the dinner spot R&R BBQ for one heck of an evening!
Well I was Vegas bound with a bike and a dog, I thought my doggie would fit in my backpack and turns out he did, I found a place with very mellow trails and with excitement I put rubber down for a good ride. It started off wide and buff and then went to narrow single track with nice views and easy pedaling. The last trail was most demanding and most MTB built, enjoyed the fresh air and stretching the legs so great success!

Phoenix Sonoran Preserve has been calling my name, I finally answered it. All started off fast and smooth and then got to climbing, enjoyed it kind of, was actually a little difficult for me in a way. Great views from on top and then it was down and back up the next mountain and then an easy ride around the hillside. As I got a mile from the car I heard that hissing only a leaky tire can make. I was flat instantly and looking for the issue a tear in the sidewall and one on the tread. I have noticed the quality on my Maxis Ikons kind of falling off. I have leaky sidewalls despite being Tubless tires, luckily I have still rode out the last three tires to their worn out death despite it. This tour however was only 2 months old. Close enough to the car I just walked to it, no complaints here, I haven't walked to the car in years.
