I have been doing quite a bit of mountain biking this week, and conversly have not been doing much writing on this blog.
Short recap, with some photos to be posted soon:
Thursday evening, Kent and I braved the super cold and windy weather to ride out behind Thumb Butte. It was snowing on us at one point! My front tire threw a rock that went into my rear spokes, and broke yet another of them. Another trip the the bike shop for repairs.
Whiskey Off Road Newbie Jennifer and I rode two loops of the Camp Perlstein/393 /Copper Basin Rd. from the Aspen Creek trail head on Friday afternoon. She did much better on the switchbacks the second time, and will do just fine in the Whiskey 15.
Saturday morning, I met up with Jonea who was up here from Phoenix to pre-ride the Whiskey 15. We rode the 19.5 miles and 2500′ of climbing that is called the 15 mile “fun” ride. The trails are in pretty good shape, with lots of water crossings because of the spring storms we have had. I am sure she will do fine on the 15 next week too.
Saturday night, Jonea and I went and did some night riding on the single track trails out at Pioneer Park / Brownlow Trail. Man, it is a whole different world riding at night, talk about tunnel vision!
