Four of us made the ride today. Me, Kent, and two newcomers (not to mtb, but to our ride group), John and Toby. They had never met each other, but showed up on nearly matching Surly single speeds.
We rode up the Feldmeier Trail, and across the Telephone Line Trail and then down the 396. It was a tough and rocky climb. Today was the first time I had ever done Feldmeier going the uphill way…..rocky is always tougher going up.
It was a beautiful evening for a ride, and we saw 7 other bikers out on the trail which was nice. We stopped and chatted with them for a few minutes. One of them was Steve that rode with us on Friday morning last week, and another was Debbie, who is a long time Prescott mountain biker.
