It was 60+ degrees out today and the sun did not set before 7:30! We are feeling it now.
The Kokopelli stuff is getting more and more rideable. Still some mud out there though - especially up Mack Ridge way. Gaining yardage big time out at the Lunch Loops, but still some serious mud up high. 18 Road is muddy and not worth the drive, trail damage or the bike wash yet. (The cover photo is just to remind us all of glory days past and glory days yet to be out on Zippity).
And- contrary to a recent report on a popular MTBR forum- Rabbit Valley is NOT really rideable and should not be ridden for awhile yet (in my opinion).
Seeing uber mud caked bikes on cars makes me think of all the effort some of us put into leaving a small footprint while others of us just stomp all over the joint...kinda like the feeling I get watching the grocery cart ahead of me piled high with all the plastic bags I haven't used this year...sigh.
Lot's of dry stuff to ride and get the winter cobwebs out and I think the weekend will be a ton of fun for those who are around...and, remember, you too could become a part of the Fruita trail building legend by getting busy with *a local trail building organization* to reroute Moore Fun this Saturday and Sunday!
Ride em if you got em.
We love bicycling as a lifestyle, culture, and sport. We love to ride, build, restore, oggle and sometimes race bicycles. We also love to talk on at great length about our ideas, opinions and exploits involving all of the above. Welcome to our BLOG!
Abandon Your Car is not a slogan or ideology so much as a reminder to all of us to get away from our petro-mobiles as often as we possibly can and embark on life as an adventure by bicycle.
We'll keep you current on the important road and trail beta from our home base in Palisade, Colorado and shower you with our .02 cents about the ongoings of bicycle tribes the world over.
Be sure to tune in for Danny, AKA: the Young Apprenctice, providing the ever important perspectives of a college-bound bike geek and all around brainiac in his NORCAL Updates.
We're glad you're here- look around, drop the Bike Master a line and then get out and ride for awhile- you'll be glad you did!
