Steve, Ray and I met at 4:00 to ride The Pines yesterday. When we got there, we discovered there were also three other people that had the same plan as we did, so we decided to ride together.
We rode up to the fireplace, then across the Dinner Hill Trail (I managed to clean it again somehow) and across and down the Tunnel Trail to what some people call the Garden of Eden and then down the Roller Coaster Trail.
Erica was the only woman on the ride, and let me tell you, she is a good mountain bike rider. She was riding a steel framed hardtail, and was right there with all of us through all the technical rocks, steep climbs, and blazing downhills. She is a freelance writer with a site called ericawriter.com that you should look at. Also check out her blog.
It is always nice to meet other Prescott mountain bikers, as we seldom see any while out on the trails.
Steve and I had already ridden 4 miles and done about an hour of trail maintanance on 332, so added to the 5.9 miles that we did with the group, that gave us almost 10 miles today and an hour of manual labor to boot!
