Ken, Michael and I met out at Granite Basin Lake to ride this morning. We were going to ride somewhere else, but Granite Basin has trails that are mostly DG (that’s decomposed granite), so they don’t gunk up your bike when they are wet. They are really the best riding around Prescott, when the forest is wet.
It was a little chilly to start out, but then once we were climbing, everything was great. We rode for 2 hours and saw no one…….NO ONE on any of the trails!
Crazy! It was a perfect morning for riding or hiking, and yet there was no one but us out there enjoying it.
The damp trails were tacky, so you could really hold your line in the turns. It was a ton of fun riding out there today, and because we were on DG instead of mud, the bikes didn’t require much clean up at all once we got home.
